It doesn’t take long for a Dock to become cluttered with applications and documents and when it does you’ll want a solution. More Docks. That’s right. Instead of a single Dock at the bottom of the screen, DockShelf lets you breed Docks to improve accessibility.
Here, There, Everywhere
In a way, DockShelf is more of a Dock alternative that simply gives you want OS X’s Dock does not. Flexibility, customizability, and options like tabs, smart folders, stacks, and workspaces.
DockShelf means you can have unlimited and specialized Docks on the Mac’s screen– one for files, one for apps, others grouped as needed, fully customizable.
Use Spotlight to create Smart Folders attached to the DockShelf Dock, and then browse the folder contents with a click. Group a bunch of files together into a Stack, then browse with a popup window.
Docks can be hidden when using DockShelf, or automatically open when a specific application is running. It even works with multiple workspaces so you can organize your workflow as you want, rather than using what Apple gives you.
DockShelf’s tabs feature alone is worth the price of admission. Display a Dock as a tab which becomes visible when you hover the Mac’s screen pointer over the tab. DockShelf comes with a variety of themes and customization options– exactly the kind Mac users want from Apple, but which are not available in the Dock.
If your Mac’s Dock is overcrowded and cumbersome to use, then break up the monotony into customizable mini-Docks that do just what you want and when you want it done. It’s especially well-suited for Mac’s with multiple displays, Mac notebooks with limited screen real estate, or for any Mac user who needs more flexibility from the Dock.
