Dockless has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
Dockless is a little app that does what some people have always wanted: remove certain applications from the Dock. Dock real estate can become precious, and some apps don't make a whole lot of sense sitting there. That's where Dockless comes in. With Dockless, any OS X application can be made to show in the Dock or not. Programmed in Cocoa-ObjectiveC.

What's New

Version 2.0.3:
  • Potentially fixed a crash on a few computers (I believe the problem was having some applications with no info.plist!)
  • Changed windowing style from textured to regular
  • Fixed a spelling mistake in the simple view

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

*Previously available here

This is a fantastic app, still works smoothly under Lion.

I use it, among other things, to make Notational Velocity invisible until I activate it with a hotkey.

Wish the UI was updated. Otherwise excellent app and hope no updates to Lion break it.

Note that it also prevents the apps menubar appearing, which may be an issue for some.

Seems to work with Lion without creating Menu Bar issues with X11 or Xquartz apps such as X-Plane

Who deleted my review?
I accidentally removed Finder from the list of apps in Dockless. After rebooting, Finder's menu would not show up. It was not immediately clear how I would go about restoring Finder to the list since Finder is not found in the Applications folder. I was very close to reinstalling the operating system due to clicking a button. This app is not safe.

There are several ways of locating "Finder"; including free 3rd party "find" programs and activating a System file search with the OSX "Find" command. This is an extremely useful utility but may require some knowledge in some instances that is beyond elementary user knowledge as do many other utilities that modify OSX. When making OSX functionaly changes it is always a good idea to make or have a backup, especially if you are not familiar with or do not completely understand what you are doing.

Does just as advertised. THANK YOU!

And for those wondering [like I was], it is NOT a temporary status where the app doesn't show in the dock when launched. It's permanent unless you open the app and change the preferences. So even after a Reboot, all apps set to not show up on the dock when launched will still do so.

Great little app; Thanks

Dockless will not only remove the icon from the dock and cmd-tab, but the Menu bar of the app will also not appear when the app is active. This could be an issue depending on how you use the app.

Matt, version 2.0.1 is compiled only as an intel build. Could you compile it as a universal so I can run it on my PPC machine?

Update: Downloaded Version 2.0 from developer's site. It does not open for my PB. I guess I'll stay with the older version.

Unfortunately, the new version scans the drive upon launch… then crashes :-\
'Hoping for a 2.0.1 update soon…
