Docker for Mac allows users to customize a number of appearance features for their Mac Docks. The package is well designed and easy to use, making it a good option for those looking to change their computer's features.

Docker for Mac starts up by displaying an options menu. This menu shows good design and information display, with descriptive text and well-labeled buttons. Users can select from a number of categories along the top, from styles to stacks, among many others. The Dock can be changed from 2D to 3D, and viewed quickly, making it easy to identify and revert changes if desired. Additional options allow for changes to the effects and animations shown when displaying and minimizing Dock menus. Modifications are also available to stack options, which is useful. These changes can also be locked, making it difficult for others to alter. This would be a nice security and convenience feature for those who have several individuals using one computer. While most of the options are available in the preferences menu, the application places them, and many others, in one location for easy customization.

Docker for Mac places an extensive number of options in one basic application, which is designed thoughtfully and will be suitable for those looking to easily change the appearance of their Dock in OS X.

Developer's Description

Tired of your dock? Spice things up a little with Docker. Access dock settings from a simple interface, and Leopard users can customize the style and color of their dock too. Docker allows Leopard users to switch between 2D or 3D dock, or customize the Dock further by individually changing the color of and style of Dock parts. If you are feeling creative, you can easily select your own images, or a vast array of downloadable styles. Docker also lets users of OSX 10.2 to 10.5 access settings normally hidden out of sight. Choose from a larger range of dock sizes, extra animation options and more. It is also now possible to prevent users from accessing certain Dock settings from the Finder, and hide or remove the menubar and Dock.
