This is a great product that elegantly makes the dock better. In spite of that, I doubt that this is exactly flying off the shelf. Even so, the developer goes out of his way to provide a Mavericks compatible version. THANKS Ranier.

Wow! It's back!

Nobody writes software like Ranier Brockerhoff ... nobody. Can't wait to give it another spin.

No other app or dev can accomplish what quay does for your dock. Honestly, if you use the dock and are not using this app your a sucker. It is filled with more features than you can shake a stick at. Honestly, if you want items organized a certain way I am sure it can be done. As you use the app you will see all these features, you can even see how much of your computer's resources a certain running app just by option+command click on the dock icon.
Excellent app, a must on every computer I use.


Also note, when snow leopard came out not many dev's could deal with the new dock code changes and within days dev Brock Rainer had Quay updated and working perfectly.

Again, if you use the dock, you need Quay.

Version 1.1.2 (297) is now posted.

This new build fixes the timeout bug that was disabling the QuayMenu background process on Snow Leopard after a certain click pattern. Also, stacking screens vertically now works if menu bar and Dock are on different screens. All users should update.

Quay keeps getting better and better. It's one of the best investments in software I have ever made!

Take the time to read the release notes if you're an existing user, I just spotted the cmd-option-click on running app in the dock to get process details feature, which is pretty cool.

Keep up the good work!

I found an issue on some Intel Macs with 1.1b3 (249) where the "Average CPU %" value in the application popup was completely wrong. It's fixed now, and because it's such a small change I preferred not to bump the beta number, but just incremented the build number. The new version is 1.1b3 (250).

So if you're affected by this, please download again and reinstall. My apologies for this slip-up.

I experienced some problems that made 1.1b1 unusable. With 1.1b2, everything works perfectly.
Not only does Quay give you the old hierarchical menus, the choice of how to sort, and restores the Command-Click>shows the folder in Finder, but it also allows me to put my customized folders in the Dock. I created folders in Tiger using a metal folder and FolderBrander or CanCombine Icons for quick identification. Now the dock functions even better than it did in Tiger.
I would buy this at 3 times the price!

I think he meant pointless instead of useless as 10.5.2 brings back the functionality.

Right; I apologize for misinterpreting the comment. I've updated the product description and the screenshot to make it clearer, and put some comparative screenshots on the product page on my site. It's like text editors; if TextEdit were sufficient, people wouldn't pay for other text editors, right?

Unfortunately, it won't install, even after I uninstalled 1.1.4. I get the following error message:

An error has occurred while installing Quay.
Please make a note of the error:

The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error -29289.) (-29289)

Sorry. Hopefully I figured out that it was a program that I installed at the same time (Dashboard Kickstart). After testing a few login and outs that appears to be the case. Whew, that was scarry!

What does "launching with no GUI" mean exactly? (also please that I may not always see posts here; sending bug reports by email or on the support forum is the best way.)
