Dashboard KickStart for Mac

By Colourful Apps Free

Developer's Description

With Dashboard KickStart, you'll always have the Dashboard ready to use the first time you want. Without it you'll have to wait for a complete Dashboard start-up sequence as soon as you are ready use it for a first time, making its quick accessibility rather useless. This application runs in the background and reacts to the starting or re-starting of the Dock and waking from sleep mode. When that happens it initiates the starting of the Dashboard.
