Overflow is an application designed to quickly launch applications, open documents, or access folders while reducing the number of items needed in your Dock. Anything you want can be added to the Overflow interface, making it accessible through a few simple mouse clicks or keystrokes. The interface is resizable, and fully customizable. Create separate categories for your applications, work files, games, or anything else you want to be able to access quickly. After using Overflow, we think you'll find it just as indispensable as we do.

I loved Trampoline and was sorry to see the product die. With each update to OS 10 there were more problems and more crashes.

Overflow is a very worthy successor to Trampoline. It has more features and is stable on OS 10.9.3. The interfaces is much nicer than Apple's Dock.

Very bad support! There is no support existent at all.I wrote to the Developer 6 times and received no reply. Ialso posted to the forum numerous times and still the Developer (Dan Messing) did not answer,( I even posted to him personally on the Forum)I was polite and courteous each time. Support is an exercise in Futility and if you require support it is nonexistent.I had to solve my problem by taking the app,preferences and the app support folder off my G4 and transferring it to my G4 Leopard Drive by using a flash drive.

FYI: On a retina MacBook Pro, the background "illumination" feature is all messed up. The app still works as it should, but it looks like hell. Unfortunately, this occurs regardless of the resolution the rMBP is set at. I wrote the dev back in June when I first got my rMBP to alert him to the problem, but still no fix four months later.

After have used this software for some months and trying some other alternatives, I decided to stick with this one, as it was the best for my needs:
- You call it with a shortcut from anywhere you are.
- You can arrange the icons as you like, no forced order or positions, but the grid that makes them look aligned. I find this VERY important and a deal-breaker for other alternatives.
- I was able to adjust the panel size, categories and remove the names (just show the icons) which gave me more or less the look I was searching for.
Overall, it looks decent and works without problems.
On the bad side, is not updated very often, low user feedback maybe?
Nice job!

I gotta say, I am impressed, but overall, I'll stick with Jumper, which I've been using for two years now. It's essentially the same thing with only a few differences (some I prefer) and it's FREE.

Adnx has discontinued jumper and wouldn't even let me download the last iteration although I was a paying customer. (It was free for a while but long ago.) Their motto had been something like "Supported for Life" but the irony of the situation didn't seem to register with them. They suck.

Nice app, it does what supposed to do very well, but it should be optimized so it consumes less ram and cpu, and should have desktop corners activation or some kind of swipe with the track pad.

No User Guide, Instructions or even a simple ReadMe? For a $15 application that's been around for at least a couple of years? Developer ignores his paying customers' requests for basic documentation? In my book, that's the definition of a crappy developer (the kind whose apps I don't mind pirating — I only pay devs who give a damn). But at least the app has built-in Help, something a lot of other developers are too lazy and apathetic to make these days.

Why do you need all that stuff if you have the built in help system?
