Last updated: 10/20/2015. Developer website: dead This is dead software. Sad. SPECULATION: The problem I had this this software is that you had to modify the dock.app. This meant you couldn't update the app with every update to Mac OS unless the author updated the app also. For a low volume app like this, $8.00 isn't enough to cover the cost of living for continued work on this app. System integrity production probably killed off this app. This I suspect is why the author gave up on it.

Looks like Dockmod isn't the only thing Apple's stealth update screwed up. http://www.macnn.com/articles/16/02/29/somebody.at.cupertino.pushed.a.security.update.that.blacklisted.ethernet.drivers.132784/

Bought a 3 license pack. One day it just stopped working. I uninstalled it and tried to download another copy of 4.0.2 (why does their web site only have ver 4.0.1. The installer would not work. Finder said to move it to the trash. Sent 4 emails with NO answer. Other installer worked but not the Ver 4. I think they have terrible support, took my money too with NO problem. Tried to download and install on a fresh OS 10.11.1 and NO go. It failed same as everything else I tried. Other installers had no problem. This software is ####ed up. No response is even worse. They should be banned form the developers community.

I installed DockMod 4.02 on OSX 10.11.3 (El Capitan). I installed it while logged in as administrator. There was no need to disable SIP and it is now running in trial mode. It works perfectly! But... it took me some time to get it working. There is no manual or help file and the interface is not self-explaining. To get it to work at all, one must do two things: 1. Get a three-day trial license from the Help menu. 2. Switch DockMod on with the slider-button in the upper-right corner of the main window. It took me hours before I tried that button. With that button one can switch DockMod and the changes to the Dock on and off. Without that button on (green), clicking Apply does nothing. With DockMod on, one can select one of the default themes. Double-clicking a theme will reveal additional settings and at the bottom of those setting panels one can add more settings. Clicking Apply will apply the chosen theme to the Dock Once you know how it works, it works fine and I am happy to be able to customize my Dock in El Capitan without the need to disable SIP. I will pay for a regular license.

After uninstalling the trial version, my previous dark-dock turned light blue and couldn't be changed. The system setting for 'use dark menu and dock' had no effect on it. No response from developer. Another app, cDock, has a setting to 'reset Dock to factory default', that worked.

No more Dock-mod apps for me ;-)

This program works well, but there are some things to take into account. In OS X Captain Crunch, you have to disable SIP. You also have to install it in a admin account. If you install it in a standard account, it will run but it won't do anything. After you install it in the admin account, it will work in all accounts on the same machine. The only caution is that it is hard to get the license to take effect. I paid for one and can't find a way to apply it.

I just broght it, I like the way it's simpler to customize the doc, but version 4 is not working on el capitan, at least for me, and there is no way to completly remove and make a clean install the program and make it work, something gets damaged in the process.

And also there is no way to transfer licences when we sell an old computer, licences die with the computer.

Thats a bad investiment, I Will wait two days for the developer to resolve the issue, then I Will cancel the purchase.

I've been purchasing this for years. Never got it to work. This time I paid the $8 and it still fails to work. I've been submitting crash reports to the developer and not one response. cDock works fine.

It does not work on my Mac running El Capitan. Is it supposed to work without disabling System Integrity Protection ? Not a mention of it anywhere.

Just got V3 and I am very impressed with the customisation under Yosemite, best looking 3D dock period. Have used Cdock which is free and does give you a 3D dock if that is all you are after. I did find myself relaunching Cdock after a restart, this was intermittent and annoying which is why I paid for Dockmod. Had a couple of queries and the support email responded promptly. If you want a pretty dock this is the one !

I am using this since Mavericks (10.9), now on Yosemite (10.10). Imo this thing is the best you can get for styling your Dock. Gets you the 3D classic Dock back on Yosemite! It costs money, yes. But it's worth it!

Excellent product that offers a dizzying array of customization features -- even more so with the Yosemite-friendly version 3.0, which is available from the developer's site but apparently not yet here on MacUpdate. The developer stays on top of new OS X releases, offers prompt support, and has delivered something light, clean, and fast that makes ostensibly similar products' limited features very much a case of "you get what you pay for." Version 3.0's new interface behaves more like a true image and level editor than a simple dock tweaker, making its most often suggested competitor's clumsy customization method look like a DOS-era joke.

1. Does this allow me to have 2 or 3 docks on one display? The video on website shows 3 docks on 1 screen? I need something like this because I am running Matrox TripleHead setup with 3 monitors that are actually one monitor, so there is no way to have 3 docks on one screen without having to reach out across the span of 3 monitors to the one with dock on the bottom. This video shows 3 docks on one screen.. http://spyresoft.com/assets/videos/dockmod-screenies.mp4 2. I spent good part of my day to customize the dock, so if I install cDock and apply one of the settings.. do I lose some of the customizations.. does DockMod create custom dock on it's own or does it inherit the customizations already present from using tools such as Tinkertool, Secret, iTweakX, MacUtil etc... My customizations: spacers, new list view, mouse highlight in list, custom indicator for open items, recent apps/docks item in the dock, scroll to show content... 3. Is there a way to create backup of the settings in case I want to go back to my customized version of the dock in case I don't like the dock in DockMod. 3. What options do I have for Customized dock. Can I have the customizations I listed in point 2?

Perhaps if I was aware of cDock, I would have gotten that. I dunno. But I do know that DockMod is rock-solid and does all it claims to do, and does it conflict free. That I have the option to customize the dock in infinite ways is but another benefit Updates have always been within a day of the OS update and customer support is first-rate/same day. That I can also help an aspiring IT student, is just more icing on the cake.

Personally I am rather surprised by low value ratings that only appear to be used to promote a different application as opposed to reviewing whether or nor DockMod works or is a well written application. I have been a user of DockMod almost since its beginning and am very satisfied with what it offers and its reliability. It has been easy to use as well as easy to customize the Dock in many different ways - not just as a transparent Dock. For me, 8 bucks is great value for what this software offers and delivers.

If you find that DockMod no longer works with 10.9.3: 1. Launch DockMod 2. Go to User Preferences 3. In the top right corner, toggle the On/Off switch (you may need to restart). AFAIK, that always works (though there is always a machine somewhere that proves me wrong).

I also highly recommend cDock instead of this. I actually wondered why cDock doesn't have an entry here so I just posted a new entry for it (waiting to be reviewed, hopefully it will make it).

Agree re cdock from sourceforge - simple, free app that did exactly what I was looking for - a transparent dock. Why pay $8 when if all you want is a transparent dock (or a couple of other basic options)? Was put off by 'videos' on dockmod webpage - sort of videos you might expect from second-hand car dealer...

A million thanks to bbbc. Following his or her advice, I downloaded the free cDock on SourceForge, which uninstalled DockMod easily. I felt uncomfortable using DockMod because VirusBarrier quarantined my Dock application after installing the application. Experts may have all kinds of technical explanations for this, but for an average user who has been using a Mac since 1991, these are hardly sufficient.

It's clear from the fast-paced videos on the author's web site that he hasn't got a clue about suability. The videos flash by so fast they could give one seizures. They'r all about showing how great he is at making flashy videos but how poor he is about communicating useful information. The guy's a poseur - that is, pretentious in the extreme.

This program nicely does what it advertises to do. The authors are up front about the fact that it is a hack. I like the way they go about the program and the website. To me it is worth the $8 and I hope SpyreSoft will be successful. For those who are complaining about not being able to use the program for free for extended periods of time despite the $8 price tag: Duh!? Maybe you should consider a naghelmet instead of calling people names. It took me just a few minutes to figure out whether I liked the program or not and whether it was worth the price to me. In my case it turned out to be a double positive. If it hadn't, I could have walked away. I'm not in any way forced to buy the program, neither are you.

I've never said something like this before, but please stay far away from this sucker as possible. The author claims to offer an unlimited trial of the software, but I've never seen a bigger piece of nagware in my life. Once you alter your dock, the icons' titles get the extra text of "DockMod Trial". In addition, a red scrolling banner / ticker text appears under your dock about the software being unlicensed. This was all within ten minutes of usage. Man, this guy really wants his $8 bucks. Different folks on Apple's forums have struggled with getting DockMod uninstalled. If you want a transparent dock on Mavericks or other tweaks, grab the free cDock on SourceForge.
