This app works great, the customizations are great and customer service is excellent. My initial install of the product did not work exactly as expected. I submitted a request on for support on Macplus software and received extremely timely responses until the issue was resolved. The only change I would make is to allow the option to create custom windows management options.

There must be some mechanism to control space between the Icons on dock. Currently, space between the icons is large due to which less icon are accommodated for same size of icons. Otherwise everything is good.

I'm using ActiveDock to replace DragThing that will not be updated for Catalina. I set up ActiveDock before switching with very good results. Setting up the "group folders" was easy, and they replaced the dock items in DragThing. Had some slight problem installing the app, but the author was very responsive and helpful, in fact, great.

I think this is worse than the original Apple dock from 2001. It's that bad with all the bugs and spinning ball.

Got and paid for this primarily because I was having issue seeing what apps were active as the indicator was often hard to see with my desktop backgrounds. It worked great for that but unfortunately it lacked a lot and still does lack a lot of the Apple Dock functionality. Additionally the developer has moved on to another similar product for multiple docks. So I have finally given up on it and gone back to the Apple Dock.

This app is so much better than the old Dock! My computer desk top is actually a piece of art - 3D makes apps so easy to find now, I love that I can change things around (colors, sizes, display, etc) too! Well worth the money!

Currently, I think the biggest drawback of this app is the fact that you cannot customize the start menu. Otherwise, it's a great app.
