DockShelf lets you place unlimited docks around your desktop so you never run out of space again for your commonly used files, folders and applications!

We've all seen it and you've probably experienced it yourself - a Dock exploding with files and apps which has been shrunk so small you can barely see what anything is anymore.

DockShelf helps you manage the clutter of the Dock by offering another form of "dock shelf" which you can place around any edge of your screen without any restrictions and has more options for customization.

Excellent, this is almost exactly what I was searching for, I just wish I could make a Shelf with my Desktop Files, Like "Archive Desktop and Make a Shelf", that would be great to unclutter my desktop and make my work more efficient! It's great to have 32 bits support and Snow Leopard. and I guess it needs work on CPU/RAM efficiency! But overall great app!

For a Version 1.0, I can say that DockShelf is a great app to have. I uninstalled Tab Launcher just so I can try this and it is great so far.

Not a bad little app. Much like Drag Thing, Tab Launcher, and A-Dock. Fairly simple to use and set up but does have a few bugs. The one bug involves removing items from the tab but is easily circumvented by just option dragging the item from the tab. The other is a minor cosmetic bug. Unless you need the more extensive feature set of Drag Thing I think this could be a useful tool for those who need something like this.
