It works as advertised. Wish it was a bit slower though, just a bit. But pretty cool anyway.

someone once sent me and email that said: "Are you joking????Your ilustrations for the poofs are simple ugly!!!!The resexcellence have so many good poofs and your only have this pieces of shit, Ha ha ha" My message to that person: Than don't use them. I have no problem with that. It's just a matter of personal liking. Can you make your own? I'm making a new page for people who make their own Poofs. Just make a new 126x640 page in photoshop (if you have it) and divide it into 5 frames, and save it as .png. I think if you can spend your time saying how bad it is, you can spend your time making a better one. And by the way, “resexcellence” is not a word.

Really? Well, I actually designed this one. But I got the idea from a book. The Bomb in the book was more 3D. Mine is just a little vector image that I made.

Sorry, but these "poofs" compared to the original one are very ugly. If one day the developer makes it a paying app, I hope he will do a huge graphic work, because for now, looks like childish design. My 2c: stick with the original ... its way better.

I agree with the reviewer, the graphics are poor and naive, whatever the number of frames.

seems like xdock is a bad time waiting to happen, every review on the first page is negative-- mostly due to it screwing up peoples computer in one way or another.

This is cool. It is very safe and stable, but hopefully the author could come up with more poofs....

I have written a program (a Tcl script) that you can run from the Terminal to safely install these poofs and restore the original. I tried sending a copy to the author but his .mac message box didn't work. Maybe I'll GUI it up some and post it here, anyone interested?

Well, I sent in my "newpoof.tcl" script but MacUpdate hasn't posted it or contacted me about it, so have a look at it on my software page: http://scarydevil.com/~peter/sw/
