iWork Dock has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
iWork Dock is one application in a series of applications I am making to reduce Dock clutter and use very small applications to take the place of many others. These applications are normally around a 100 kb, and use 0 CPU when they are open and idle. To use them you can right click on the icon in the dock and you will see a custom dock menu listing a series of applications you can launch from there.

Making these applications from the feedback I get takes time, I do this as a hobby. If you enjoy using the software, and would like to see them kept up to date and more, and you would like to donate a few dollars to keep them coming more...

What's New

Version 1.4: Added Update support to the app.

Version 1.3: Added website to menu, please check it out, it has information about custom docks.

Version 1.2: Updated menu items.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later, iWork installed.

An easier alternative that uses zero overhead is to simply fill a folder with application aliases and drag that folder to the dock. It has the added options of opening as a list, fan, or grid, and can be outfitted with a custom icon.

This was designed for Tiger, that does not have that support.

Nice idea, here's one more suggestion (for all the "...Dock" apps) though: It would be better to "hide" the app from showing in the main menu and/or application siwtcher and just have it in the dock...!? If that's possible...kind of like Twitterific does or so...?!

I have inquired with apple and a few cocoa developers, and the answer I am getting about that is that you cannot have it in the dock and not appear in the application switcher (command tab) or in the menubar, this is unfortunate, because I was hoping to implement that into all of them.

LiteSwitch X by Proteron is an excellent replacement application switcher. It allows you to exclude applications from it, even if they do show in the dock. Looks like MacUpdate has a special deal on it for the time being.

Very nice and good idea. There maybe other ways to develop these, but, on a lazy beautiful July 4th, I appreciate Sam's ability and work. Thank you.
