"Best of both worlds"

August 26, 2014  |  By LXXIII

 |  Version: uBar 2.1.4

Pros

- Great for recent Windows converts and Mac veterans alike
- Great support from dev
- Great multi-monitor support

Cons

- I still miss the Windows Aero screen preview on-hover of taskbar icons

Summary

I'm a recent Windows convert so it's not hard to see why I love this app, but I even showed it to my friend (a long-time Mac user) and he started using it too!

"Not bad but needs improvement"

September 20, 2009  |  By MacOO7

 |  Version: uBar 1.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Not a bad little application but it needs the ability to be positioned on any side of the monitor and not just the bottom. It also needs to be able to run under Snow Leopard which is not indicated on their web site. Add those two improvements and it would be great.

"***?!"

September 09, 2009  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: uBar 1.0.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Seriously, even a hardcore Windows user would vomit after seeing this. Long ago on OS9 there was an app like this called, "Action Go Mac." It was actually pretty cool as OS9 just had the Task Strip. After all these years past OS9 there is no need for this. Now a days if someone wants a Windows interface, they'll just use --- well --- friggin Windows.

This thing just goes against the entire interface in a bad way. I mean, the reaction to seeing this thing in action is visceral. NO, just NO!

GONG! GONG! GONG!

Screw the obvious Human Interface Guideline infractions. This code turd doesn't even make navigation of the OS better. uBar has made an innovation by making OSX more complicated than it's Windows brother.

This should be renamed, FuBar.

It blows big time and I mean that in the highest of goat way. Bahhhhhhhhhhhh. Remember kids, bah means, " NO!"

"I haven't seen anything this bad since Alpha Omeg..."

Why in the name of all that's holy would anyone want the Godawful Windows taskbar on their Mac? Let alone this incompletely designed piece of crud (yes, I couldn't help myself - I just had to try it - it's like rubbernecking at a car wreck, you know it's wrong but you can't help yourself)...

Avoid.
