    "Nothing special just another dock"

    October 4, 2012  |   By chuffmountain

    Version: Winstep Nexus Dock 12.2

    Pros

    Nice effects, nice control interface, nice everything. It is comparable to stardock objectdock in terms of features and functionality. A fairly good piece of work, and I have a feeling it is probably the better of the two but marginally so. It lacks some functions of objectdock, but then it has a few of its own features that object dock doesn't have. Winstep Nexus Ultimate is far suerior to the free version so dont rely on reviews that concentrate of the free version.

    There's nothing wrong with winstep nexus but, to be honest, it feels a bit more stilted and cumbersome to configure than object dock, although, I must say once you do forgive nexus for that you will appreciate that it is also marginally better than objectdock.

    Cons

    Slightly overpriced.

    A lot of people have waited from 2 to 30 days to get their hands on a registration key after paying. Be warned it's not like you pay and 10 minutes later you are playing. For some reason there's a huge delay between payment and receipt of a fully registered program. To see the validity of that statement google winstep forums and see how many people have to beg to get emails answered.In that respect stardock are vastly superior.
    Winstep won't rip you off but they are slow, so pay by paypal rather than a credit card.

    The program is priced differently outside the USA but there is no warning you will be charged extra for the privilege of buying outside the USA and there are no options to pay in other currencies than your local currency.

    Summary

    A decent program all round and probably worth the wait for a registration key but I'm hard pushed to see a reason why you shouldnt wait as Nexus is a prettier and more finished product than objectdock but with about the same functionality.
    I would say "Buy it, wait, and then enjoy"

    "Winstep Devs earn their money (NEXUS PRODUCTS)!!"

    July 9, 2012  |   By smokin-j

    Version: Winstep Nexus Dock 12.2

    Pros

    This is some really great stuff. Finally some software for your PC that actually makes it fun to use again. Fast, Light, very usable and feature rich Windoze desktop extention. Nice array of smart phone style screen enhancements. The one and only main "PRO" to this software is it does what it is suppose to and does it very well. Not only practical but bery fun to play with. Just the hours of tweaking alone makes this software worth every penny with an added bonus of making your PC more user friendly..

    Cons

    I didn't make it.

    Summary

    Very cool, worth every cent. Thank you for making a piece of software that is useful and also extremely fun to use. Let me add, No I do not work for or even know anyone affiliated with the developement of this product. I just like it.

    "Surprisingly sophisticated for a freeware app."

    May 21, 2012  |   By GCG1000

    Version: Winstep Nexus Dock 12.2

    Pros

    Excellent GUI that is sleek, fast, complete and flexible with a myriad of options and features for almost anyone's docking requirements. Similar to OSX, but better.

    Cons

    None at this point.

    Summary

    I run Nexus with XLaunchPad for a surprisingly complete Windows 7 user experience. Nice app and its FREE!

    Updated on Aug 7, 2014

    It's like giving Win 8.1 an enema! Makes 8.1 behave like OSX (almost) Truly the best desktop aid for MS's "new" Win product! Do you miss OSX with Win? Get this app; it will calm your nerves! And this app is FREE! YOU can't beat it! No gas & no stress!
