Perhaps if I was aware of cDock, I would have gotten that. I dunno. But I do know that DockMod is rock-solid and does all it claims to do, and does it conflict free. That I have the option to customize the dock in infinite ways is but another benefit Updates have always been within a day of the OS update and customer support is first-rate/same day. That I can also help an aspiring IT student, is just more icing on the cake.
So far, I heavily favor v5.x. Were I to (re)install v5.2.3 over v6.0 would I need do anything special, or may I merely replace the new app with the older one?
A bit if jerkiness upon initial scrolling, but a restart put things to right, e.g., smooth as glass. A great product with great support. Couldn't be happier.
Within a day of the 10.9.3 release, Adam published the update/fix. Bravo!
If you find that DockMod no longer works with 10.9.3: 1. Launch DockMod 2. Go to User Preferences 3. In the top right corner, toggle the On/Off switch (you may need to restart). AFAIK, that always works (though there is always a machine somewhere that proves me wrong).
For me, all the horror stories that others have noted, came to pass; incredibly slow, tried to install data already installed, and then failed/crashed when trying to complete the update, and left the app (and I don't know what else) unstable. Fortunately I had a full OS backup. Perhaps it was just moi or my system, but for now, I'll wait for the next version.
As one who damned earlier versions, I am pleased to note that this one works as advertised. The Garmin Lifetime updater was replaced, as in a version updater, but now the app is called Garmin Express and has a different icon. Time will tell re how solid/robust this version is, but for now, the outlook is favorable.
Alas, I remain confused... I already have Garmin Lifetime Updater and Garmin Web Updater. What does this app do that is different/better than what I already have? Or has it merely supplanted those or what?
Now I'm confused... On my 10.9.2, my installed version of Airport Utility is 6.3.2. So for whom, or for what Airport models does this apply? Or is the stated version number merely a typo or some such?
Thanks to you both! Indeed the fog has lifted; and I do so appreciate the light you have shared.
The developer has released, and has posted on his web site, a public beta that works with v10.9.2.. Two observations: • The new SS is now a stand alone app, rather than a System Preference. • There is now a menu bar icon to access the preferences and check for updates. AFAIK, it works without issue, though one may still need to add or remove specific applications.
While I have been a satisfied MacPilot user for years, this will be my last year. I have already created a "reminder" to cancel my subscription upon expiration. Like Higherterrain said, this seems more of a downgrade rather than the reverse, especially with regard to third party apps. I already have TinkerTool, TinkerTool System, Cocktail and Onyx, and so for me, there are few, if any, features of MacPilot that I don't already have. Alas, I have been foolish and subscribed. I can but suggest that you DO NOT follow my example.
