Rocketdock Application Launcher

Hello

Last night I came across what I think is a terrific free little program called "RocketDock."

RocketDock is a smoothly animated, alpha blended application launcher. It provides a nice clean interface to drop shortcuts on for easy access and organisation.

With each item completely customizable there is no end to what you can add and launch from the dock.

Now with added Taskbar support your minimized windows can appear as icons on the dock. This allows for better productivity and accessibility.
Features:

  • Minimize windows to the dock
  • Real-time window previews in Vista
  • Running application indicators
  • Simple drag-n-drop interface
  • Multi-monitor support
  • Supports alpha-blended PNG and ICO icons
  • Icons zoom and transition smoothly
  • Auto-hide and Popup on mouse over
  • Positioning and layering options
  • Fully customizable
  • Completely Portable
  • ObjectDock Docklet support
  • Compatible with MobyDock, ObjectDock, RK Launcher, and Y'z Dock skins
  • Runs great on slower computers
  • Unicode compliant
  • Supports many languages and can easily be translated
  • A friendly user base :)
  • And best of all... its FREE!!!
Following is an image of my desktop showing "RocketDock' and weblink for the program:

Enjoy!

thefrecklepuny, you're quite right, I didn't notice that, but I can say it is running beautifully on Vistax64.

BladedThesis, thanks for bringing ObjectDock to my attention. Are you running the free or paid version, because I wouldn't mind paying the $19.95 and getting the extras? What say you?

Neil

LOVE RocketDock! I'd ask the same question, is Object Dock that much better?? I'm a dad of 3 girls, so spending extra $$ on software is usually out of the question ;-)

BladedThesis

Thank you for making all of us aware of Stardock's "ObjectDock."

I have since invested in "ObjectDock Plus" as I do like the additional options it provides over "RocketDock."

Donovan, the program represents excellent value at just $19.95.

Following is a snapshot of the program "ObjectDock" which was kindly brought to our attention by the very humble "God" from Washington DC, none other than All That Is Man himself ..."BladedThesis!!!":


"ObjectDock Plus™ takes your dock experience to the next level!

If you liked the fun style and useful features that the never-nagging free-to-use version provided, you'll love the whole next step of enhancements provided by Plus!

A listing of some Plus Exclusives:
  • Tabbed Docks for the ultimate in stylish organization!
  • Create as many docks as you'd like!
  • Show your system tray icons in your dock
  • Special taskbar options
  • Task grouping
  • Colorize backgrounds to your liking in a single click
  • More mouseover effects
  • Automatically hide your dock for maximized applications"
Kind Regards

Neil
