RubberDockey provides you with a list of applications it believes you are likely to use next, in the form of an easily accessible and elegant "Command-Tab"-llke menu. RubberDockey first watches and learns about your application behavior, and then bases its assumptions on what it's seen you use before.

More elegant features include:

  • Define the number of applications you wish to see in RubberDockey's menu.
  • Added integration, with the ability to auto-launch RubberDockey on startup.
  • Decay feature, which ensures that RubberDockey doesn't simply base its assumptions on the number of times you've used an more...

What's New

Version Version 1.23:
  • Extra keyboard functionality. Now scroll through RubberDockey's menu using either the right/left arrow keys, or your defined hot key (excluding modifiers), or the mouse. Launch an application using the Enter key or a mouse click.
  • Ability to select Tab as your hot key.
  • Fixed an issue with long application names. Now names will be correctly cut-off to fit more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3 or later

I've been trying it out for a couple of days, and it really does work! Very easy to use - I just load up my comp and it's there. I press my hot key and the menu pops up, ready to go.

Like the other guy said, it's more of a mix of the recent items and dock apps , but I found when I increased the number of apps to 8 and also used the exclude dock apps option, it really did begin to "guess" what apps I wanted to use next.

Best case scenario - you press the hot key and an app that's not in the dock but you want to use will be there for you to quickly run.

Worst case scenario - you would have pressed 2 or 3 keys, and simply found and opened the app normally, with rubberdockey remembering what you used for the next time around.

Try it out.

RubberDockey does not reference the framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LiveType.framework/Versions/A/LiveType . It sounds like prebinding is broken on your machine and this has nothing to do with RubberDockey. Try "sudo update_prebinding -root /" in Terminal to fix this and other Cocoa crashes.

LiveType is part of FinalCutPro, and now FinalCut Express. Why would RubberDockey link to this framework in the first place?

Emailing or contacting the developer to confirm the source of the bug would have been more productive than posting the same "bug" twice (and on versiontracker) along with a 1 star rating.

You're just another user who can not maintain her/his Mac properly and blames others for problems that arise.

Why pay $5 for a fairly simplistic application launcher, when you can get the power and beauty of Quicksilver for free?

I think you're comparing apples with oranges here. One searches, the other anticipates. I think what the aim was here, was to allow the users to easily access a large number of applications, without any searching whatsoever. I've had some success with it, so I'm quite impressed.

Let's just remember the reason why QuickSilver is free. Because when Tiger comes out, Spotlight will make it obsolete.

Because it's fairly simplistic and not the overgrown beast that QS is.

An interesting program. Seems to be combining the tasks of the dock and the "Recent Items" menu. It doesn't really guess what you want next, but rather keeps track of what apps you use the most. It does a nice job of automating, which you have to manually put frequently used applications into the dock, where as this program will automatically compile a list of well used applications. The problems are 2 fold, that applications you would like to start using aren't added to the list very fast, as they aren't up to the status of frequently used yet and that the dock already provides an excellent place to store frequently used applications. Since the dock offers an easier way to get what I want (in my opinion), I'm skipping this software.
