SliderDock offers to help users organize and access several programs on the fly. With its smooth menu and its simplicity, SliderDock ensures that anyone can save time and effort by using it.

The program's interface is easy to operate since it only requires the most basic of mouse functions. In fact, it reminded us heavily of a Mac's lower scrolling mechanism, which brings program icons to the foreground. SliderDock appears as a little onscreen bubble that you drag your favorite program icons into. SliderDock simply creates a new shortcut for each program within the bubble, while the original icons stay in place. You simply double-click an icon in SliderDock, and the target program opens and functions just like it normally does. Once you've populated SliderDock with icons, you can scroll through all of your choices using your mouse wheel. SliderDock is sensitive to scrolling speed, and we soon felt in complete control. It's easy to move forward and backward within SliderDock. The program also helps save time with customizable hot keys. You can assign any of SliderDock's functions to a hotkey, which is a great advantage for operating in a hurry. SliderDock is sure to save time for anyone who must frequently shift from a program screen to the desktop to open more programs. SliderDock makes every effort to maximize your computer efficiency by saving you time and effort on the things you do most.

SliderDock is a free program. Its simple operation and timesaving functions earn our high recommendation.

Developer's Description

SliderDock is a application launcher for windows in the shape of a 3D wheel. This dock focus on making the access to icons easier by making them rotate toward a single focused point on the screen with the use of the mouse wheel. Once an application is launched, the dock will hide itself to not take precious desktop space and will clean its memory use for the smallest RAM footprint when it is not needed. Afterward SliderDock can be recalled with a simple keyboard shortcut. This application launcher is also compatible with skins and icons from other docks for a wide choice of customization.

The dock can also be controlled by keyboard and all keyboard shortcuts can be customized. It is also possible to group icons by sets, switching between sets with a simple click on the middle mouse. The dock also has an advance portable mode. When on a memory stick, dragging an application which is found on the same drive will give it a relative path, so even when on a different computer where the drive letter has changed, the dock is still able to find your portable applications and launch them.
