Boy, was I getting excited! I tried freebie multiDock and could see how great thing is - if it worked on my Mac.

Worked good first couple of tries but after adding a 2nd or 3rd dock, it kept confusing the other named docks with one another and I kept getting the wrong dock.

Also, it takes me about 5 or 6 clicks before it finally kicks in and selects what I want done - then it does it wrong. Sorry. How do I uninstall this?

Never mind, I keep clicking my way out of this. I wish some of you developers would spend your valuable time doing something which works.

Really like this app, just what I wanted, though I'd also like the option of having the extra docks open at the same time, arranged where I need them on the desktop.

Big problem though: When I switch between docks, any files I've 'stored' in the alternative dock are kicked out and appear on the screen, along with any running applications (like my SETI@Home), and the whole thing becomes one big mess. This defeats the purpose. Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Thanks for any help you can give.

This is a great little app. so simple and easy to use. It makes it so much easier to organize my computer's uses so I don't have an enormously cluttered dock anymore. Thanks.

Excellent! Very useful app! Much better than the others (multidock "shareware" , dockExtender, etc). Unlike the "others", It switches between docks without delay. It's worth the time you spend downloading...and let me say...if it would be shareware...it would be as well. Bravo Daniele, eccellente laoro. But please, change the dark-gloomy icon...your app is not an old arcade game.

One thing I noticed almost immediately was that my dock started showing SMALLER and smaller and ....... icons as more apps were opened. Which is now the growing problem with the OSX system. More speed and memory means more apps will run and that means the dock fills up like a cup in a rainstorm. I have multiDock 1.5 and was about to upgrade from 1.2.1 and decided to comment.

I have 4 different docks that I have saved, the "Default" dock for the basic apps (which I never seem to use), "Internet," which I'm using now, plus "Imaging" for all the apps I need while transmitting or editing photos, and "Music" for the music I like to listen to. And this is one cool -- let me say, "must- have" -- app for the OSX. I'm sure that people who have upgraded to Jag aren't just going to sit back and write penpal notes through AIM and then do some word processing. This platform is for people who want to have fun as well. Why else has the Macintosh gone into "super-computing" speed? It's the games, music, video, chatrooms, etc blank blank, dot dot. Just customize multiDock to how you want it, and toggle between where your intrest drifts at the time. Try it, play with it, experiment and enjoy.

Thanks, Daniele Krahenbuhl, for a much- needed desktop utility. I saw that there was another similar app that's shareware. But I like this one. Hey, if it's free, it's for me, I'll take three.

Great freeware.
Easy to use and functional if you like to store a lot of icons in your dock.
