The Dock replacement.

  • Application Badges are readable unlike the Dock's
  • Customizable uBar menu
  • Activity Mode: hold Ctrl key to show Application CPU and Memory usage
  • Group Windows by Application (Always, Never, Automatic)
  • Light or Dark theme
  • Works on OS X 10.11

It's a useful app when it works. However, customer service seems nonexistent, no response at all. I am giving it a low rating based on poor client care.

I don't understand the point of this app. I HATE the Windows "Start Bar," so I cannot fathom why anybody would want to replace the awesome macOS Dock with a Windows-like start bar.

uBar is the best dock replacement I've seen. Unfortunately, it is quirky, and has bugs in it. Customer support is nonexistent. I've raised 5 "issues" through their support portal in the last year; I didn't get a response to any of them.

Im a windows user and to be honest this is the closest to taskbar, if not the best. I've experienced minor issues, sure, but the paid one is really worth it even with bugs. I reported an issue regarding the current version about ubar not adding the new window on the sidebar and i got a reply. I mean, they didn't fix it but i got a reply that they are working for ubar 5. So im not sure about others not receiving a reply about their reports. Im willing to wait for ubar5 because there is no other app that actually does exactly the same.

WOW! The developer is still alive. I wonder if he will respond to the multiple support requests over the last year. I think we all deserve an E-Mail to say what happened - can he fix our problems and is he going to stay alive

I have paid for the licence, but never received the licence to my email address! Contacted support and it is already a week without response! THE COMPANY IS STEALING MONEY.

I had a fresh install of MacOS Catalina, then immediately installed uBar. I haven't had any issues and updates just fine. Have installed multiple apps and then uninstalled, no issues with uBar at all.

In general, I like the app. But it has bugs that are affecting me and the support site (hosted at brawersoftware.atlassian.net) has been unavailable for a month, with no reply from the dev to my emails. I'm not happy paying $30 for an abandoned app. That's not the way to treat paying customers.

This developer has ignored everybody for months, including my support request last spring. Wondering if the horrible bug with the dock has been fixed. I will test it out, but if it hasn't, I'm abandoning this app for good.
