For anyone who for some reason failed to read... and wants to take their failure to read out on this great application through negative reviews: http://74.6.238.254/search/srpcache?ei=UTF-8&p=http%3A%2F%2Fhyperdock.bahoom.de%2F&fr=sfp&u=http://cc.bingj.com/cache.aspx?q=http%3a%2f%2fhyperdock.bahoom.de%2f&d=4666464951732534&mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&w=32a44c2,612baf4d&icp=1&.intl=us&sig=KQp9xEiGz4V8vrVVLfZ.UA-- There's the cached page.

This tools hasn't worked since Mojave arrived. I emailed the developer and got nothing. Now, I've received a "This version of HyperDock has expired" message from the app itself. Was a good tool but seemingly useless now.

I have been futzing around with this for ages, but then saw the fix that worked for me below! Removing HyperDock from the Security & Privacy Accessibility pane in System Preferences, then switching to the HyperDock preferences pane pops up the usual dialogue saying it wants to control your machine. Click allow, then switch back to the Security & Privacy Accessibility pane and tick the box and, hey presto, it works! Thank goodness!! I have been lost without this since upgrading to Mojave!!

WHEW. I was just going (like this minute) to contact the developers to see if HyperDock was Mojave compatible. My 2014 MBPro mac keeps bugging me to update and I was finally considering. I use Hyperdoc constantly. If it wasn't compatible, I wasn't going to upgrade. And then, magically, an update window appeared out of nowhere... Hopefully, it'll work great.

Sadly this app appears to be dead. It doesn't work on the current beta of Mojave, and it hasn't been updated in over a year and a half. It's a shame as it was rather useful.

The app does not seem to work in Mojave (beta) any longer. The link to the developer's Web site does not work, either. Is this app dead?

I've purchased this app many years ago on the Mac App Store. I've had a nice time with it for a while. Today I noticed that it was no longer available on MAS. It is not that surprising given that there is virtually no maintenance since 2016. However, the app disappeared completely from my purchased app list. This is very unsettling for me. I still have a ton of other apps that no longer available in MAS but they are all still in the purchase list. Can a developer decide to give the finger to all the clients on MAS of his own app down the road?

I've used this app ever since I discovered it—it's always one of the first few things I install on a fresh OS. It's a shame that the developer has neglected it, though...

This type of utility always gets abandoned at the end. Plus, when you get used to using something like this too much, you feel completely lost when you have to work on another Mac without it. Furthermore, all the milliseconds you think you might be saving is entirely erased almost instantly once you have to troubleshoot for high CPU usage, things not working right, etc. Unlike general stand-alone apps, this type of utility is hard to make it stable and reliable, because it has to handle a huge variety of scenarios system-wide with a bunch of other apps. macOS's default Mission Control works just fine. I used to use stuff like this in the past, but I found it rather redundant and unnecessary once I learned to use all macOS default features effectively.

Makes up for (and then some) a huge oversight by Apple. Windows has this and so should macOS. The nice thing is this makes the Mac Dock even better than Windows Taskbar capabilities. I've never had issues related to this app and its built-in Window Snapping capabilities are indispensable as well. This gets installed on every Mac, period.

1.6.1 seems to fix the issues that kept this from working previously. If you have an MAS version installed, the non-MAS version will detect it.

Now HyperDock is not working on mountain lion even with an uninstall and re-install from MAS. I find it curious that all my operating systems suddenly all tell me my trail period has ended when I paid the full price in the MAS in 2014. This software is a total rip-off.

I tried out HyperDock and liked its features so decided to spend the $6.95 price to purchase it. This was at the beginning of January 2016 and I have still (March 2, 2016) not received a license. I have written the developer multiple times explaining the problem and have not heard a single word in response. I know that the payment was accepted. I have no problem with the app, as little as I was able to use it, but I would warn anyone considering buying it that your money might disappear and you will still not have the app.

The star rating is based on my experience with the developer.

By the way, if you google HyperDock license you will find that I am not the only one to have this problem.

At least that's what I got when downloading from the developer's website. Seems to work fine in El Capitan (10.11.1) so far.

It is now my time to lambaste and insult your application with a my criticism of your app because you will not accord me my due as I submitted proofs to you that I paid for it.BestRegards,jazzyguy

I used DockView for many years and was very upset to find out it was being discontinued. Begrudgingly I switched over to HyperDock and now I'm pretty happy with it.

PRO: Seems very stable and fast, no issues with latest version. Matches most of the features I came to know and love with DockView over the years. I hover over an app icon within the Dock and I can see thumbnails of its open windows even if they are within another Space. I can see how far along a download of a Linux update is going within another Space without switching to that Space and interrupting my workflow, for example.

Just figured out it has a Window Management feature that allows me to snap windows to screen edges and expand them like the Windows OS. This feature is great and even works with Quick Look windows in Mavericks where other apps like Cinch fail. Also, it's great that I no longer have to run another app to have that functionality.

Lots of ways to change the view of thumbnails and behaviors.

CONS: I found a bug where if I linger on a thumbnail over the dock long enough the window will actually activate without me clicking on it and on top of that it will even bring windows from other Spaces into my current Space instead of taking me to the Space it is in (even though I didn't even want that to happen either). This might just be a trackpad issue as I haven't tested with a mouse yet.

Unlike DockView, it doesn't appear to show live thumbnails (or have the option for it). In DockView, I could see the progress of a download, etc. in the thumbnail in near real-time. However with HyperDock, I only have to the option to see a static snapshot of the window that will only update if move off the thumbnail and hover over the app in the Dock again to refresh the thumbnail. This isn't a deal killer and may just be a new limitation set by Apple in newer Mac OS versions.


MISSING FEATURE: I really wish HyperDock would offer the option of showing Safari's tabs as thumbnails in the Dock above the Safari app icon like you can do with Windows and IE, etc.

I bought this application at MAS store and I have been cotacting the Developer. He apoligized because his aggressive spam filter put my on the BAD list. But apparently he never took me off. I sent him proofs as he didn't recall me at all from our previous dialogue. Now he doesn't know thatI sent him proofs that I bought his application. What can I do.I have Snow Leopord on 2 of my Macs and I keep saying Decide Later. Can someone help me?

I work equal parts in the PC world and Mac world and loved some of the window features of Windows 7/8. This app gives me what I was missing in OS X. Now I can't live without HyperDock. Great app!

I like this program allot especially the snap feature. Purchased through MAS for my computer but when I try to load on a computer with snow leopard it offers a 15 days trial period. The version I purchased from the MAS was 1.5...probably would be a better option to purchase from the developer website if anyone is considering buying it. The other issue the MAS does not offer a preference pane in system preferences but at least that is easily corrected with loading the version from the developers website. Unfortunately 1.5 from MAS won't load on snow leopard so there is no way for the program to know I purchased it. Sent the developer an e-mail and will see what solution he can offer. Any ideas?

I had a problem with this application in as much as it would not run properly.Thedeveloper worked tirelessly with me without any regard for his time or trouble. I have to complement him on his devotion and total unselfish support to his licensees He didn't care about anything until this application ran right. Christian Baumgart is a developer that many should copy and emulate!

Embarrassing to admit a mistake, but in all fairness to the developer, I should report that after contacting the developer, it may be the copy I used may have been cracked. Since this may be the case, I have apologized to the developer for flaming out and for not switching to a purchased copy after finding it is stable. Previous review was based on the assumption HyperDock was a broken app and I was being asked to upgrade again after only having recently purchased it. New review based on performance of app while it worked and to make up for earlier negative comments.

WORST OF ALL; I SAW NO WARNING IN THE INSTALLER OR ON THE WEBSITE THAT INSTALLING VERSION 1.4 WOULD INVALIDATE THE LICENSE. WHAT A RIP! MAYBE THE DEVELOPER BURIED THAT MESSAGE SOMEWHERE, BUT I'LL BET ALMOST EVERYONE GOT HOODWINKED. WHY DID I WASTE MY TIME CONTACTING THE DEVELOPER TO INQUIRE WHY THE LICENSE WASN'T BEING ACCEPTED?
