Dock app launcher for iLife apps.

Overview

iLife Dock is one application in a series of applications I am making to reduce Dock clutter and use very small applications to take the place of many others. These applications are normally around a 100 kb, and use 0 CPU when they are open and idle. To use them you can right click on the icon in the dock and you will see a custom dock menu listing a series of applications you can launch from there.

Making these applications from the feedback I get takes time, I do this as a hobby. If you enjoy using the software, and would like to see them kept up to date and more, and you would like to donate a few dollars to keep them coming please contact me via email.

This one is specifically for Apple's iLife Application Suite. If you want to see some more of these type please email me and give me an idea of some of the applications you would like to see supported.

why not just make a folder with aliases ? I find the result even better. Maybe I missed something.

The new icon is really bad. Keep it as the iLife Box, or give people an option. Also, try making it click and not right click to access the app and I will download and donate. Thank you

Alright, the icon I can fix easily. as for clicking on it, if you click and hold, a menu will pop up which you can then move the mouse up until you reached the desired option, then release the mouse. This is something I cannot change, it is built directly into the Mac OS. As soon as I can sort out my computer problems: 1) external drive that has everything backed up on after my computer stopped working, just died, need to ghost it. 2) needs a new fan for the hard drive then I will get to replacing the icon.

Yeah, no problem. For future reference, please also post on the forum at my website. http://samsoftware.110mb.com because I check there more often than I do here, it was just a coincidence I happened to see your post quickly.

The download links don't work for iWork or iLife dock apps. I have tried with both Safari and Firefox. I have also tried control clicking to download the linked file, but only get an HTML file.

The problem is completely at your end, I access MacUpdate just as any other user would (my location is on the Pacific coast of Mexico) and these download links you mention work just fine. I just checked them both.

Weird. All of the other links I come across on MacUpdate also work fine. These are the only two that don't seem to work.

All I can think of for you to do is to flush your browser(s) cache(s), and flush the lookupd cache as well.

I have flushed all of the various browser cache's (Safari, Firefox, Camino, OmniWeb, Opera, etc.), but no luck. How do I flush the lookupd cache?

if you do it with a folder, it require to you click once, wait for the window to appear, then click on the alias, then close the window. With this app, you can click, hold then go to the wanted application in the list, then let go of the mouse, and that application will open, it is a timesaver and reduces dock clutter.

And with a created folder, it can only go into the right of the dock, not the left where all the applications are!

Though with the aliases you also get icons. Icons would be an nice addition to this little app.
