No logner works correctly under 10.7.3. Don't think the developer has paid attention since 10.4. Used to work just fine.

Correct. Does not work in Lion.
Pity, I used this app many times daily.
I now rely on Alfred which works great, if you remember each applications name.

Actually, there was an hack (through XCode) which allowed me to use DockFun under Lion up to 10.7.3 included, removing also the annoying bug under Lion (app icons in the docks where converted into question mark icons and clicking over them was no longer operational, through XCode and property editor it was possible to fix).

But now with Lion 10.7.4 DockFun definitely doesn't work anymore at all: it crashes immediately, the small icon on the menu bar doesn't appear anymore (and trying forcing it through the preferences causes the app to crash), the DockPit itself doesn't open anymore. So, with 10.7.4 this app is definitely dead.

Pity.

Very handy and useful Dock integration for Mac OS X. I can now start
getting rid of all the alias' on my desktop and gain some real estate.
I recommend getting this Application utility over many other utilities, as this is high quality, the developers are always hard at work and this is just a plain useful utility for home users to professional. Great enhancement to my everyday usage. It takes a little while to get used to it, but it is DockFun!

I like this alot, but I wish there was some way to disable running applications showing up in all docks. (AFAIK there isn't). I set up my docks, but when I launch an app, it shows up in all of the docks. Any way to disable this?

You must be new to MAC. When you launch an App of course it will show up "in all docks". It is now officially "up and running".

Dockfun! has no control over showing you what you open and leave open. That's just how OS X works. It opens it up and places it on the far right side, with a black triangle undeneath, to remind you "Hey! You left me open, dude!".

When you close it, it goes away. That's how these things work on OS X. You didn't know?

ROADTRIPDK,

I got the same message from Little Snitch. What's your point?

I checked with Spotlight, and I launched the Activity Monitor. I could not find "DockInsteminator" by name or by PID#. Even the Dock PID# doesn't match the alert. All I can find in "All Processes" is:

242 DockFun!
173 Dock

Googling DockInseminator found me nothing except your comment here. In other words, I can not find any other reference to this app online. Do you know something we don't?

How about some specifics. What does this have to do with DockFun! ??

Yup, same here. Interestingly, the PID# seems to change everytime that Little Snitch prompts with the warning, if you have allowed DockInseminator to perform its thing earlier during a session.

My point is that I was hoping someone more knowledgeable that could elucidate a little on this issue or that the developer might react. There have been complaints in connection with other products by this developer about lack of response.

I don't know how serious this issue is, but if nothing else the posting could be a warning to others, before they purchase

I've had DockFun! for several months now. This week is the first time I've gotten the warning.

I still don't see the connection between DockFun! and DockSeminator. I can't find it anywhere on my hard drive.

Have you gotten in touch with OBdev ?? If their product is issuing the warning, they had better know something more about it.

OK, I have posted a comment under Little Snitch here in MacUpdate. The developer response time seems to be quick, so let's hope we get some comments from him or another user that has run across the same issue.

It would probably be best to keep an eye on the issue under the Little Snitch heading as I think there will be more of a response there. I haven't posted directly to the Little Snitch developer yet as I am as of now still using Little Snitch on a trial basis, but that could end up being the thing to do if there are no other responses on MacUpdate.

Little Snitch reports:

"Application "DockInseminator" (296) attempts to inject and execute foreign program code in "Dock" (295). This is a security risk as it may allow "DockInseminator" to circumvent Little Snitch."

If you had bothered to check the developer's website you'd know this:

"Warning: DockFun! 4.6.3 is currently not fully compatible with Tiger. We are working to make it work on Mac OS 10.4"

Just downloaded and paid for this cute and useful app. I think it is very creative and intuitive. Now at the beginning there is a short movie that quickly gets you up and running. Works for me exactly as described, and makes using the dock fun, and finally useful

good piece of software.

on my side, i never experienced troubles or delays when it was to contact mr john: quick replies, good efficiency, good support. the two stars and the previous comment in this page looks to me excessively negative, too much excessive.
