Love it or hate it, the Mac’s Dock is rather simple to use and I don’t have any major issues complaints. That’s because I seldom use the Dock. It’s good as an app launcher. Provided you don’t have many apps. It’s good as a status notified. For those few apps that use the Docks’ hover or right-click function. What the Mac’s Dock needs is HyperDock because it comes with the features most of us want, need, and would use.
HyperDock is not a Dock replacement. It’s an add-on tool which lets you know what apps in the Dock are doing at the moment. Point your Mac’s screen pointer to a Dock icon, and HyperDock goes into action with visual cues– pop up windows which reveal which windows are open for that specific app.
The window preview pop up displays each of the app’s open windows so you can select the one you want without having to go to the app first, then cycle through each window.
You don’t even have to click to see the app’s open windows. It just works. Find the app window you want, click and HyperDock brings it to the front, ready to use.
HyperDock also brings window management tools to your Mac. Move and resize app windows by holding down keys and moving the window with the mouse or screen pointer. Window snapping lets you automatically resize windows when you drag it to the side of the Mac’s screen.
Use HyperDock for a day and you’ll wonder why Apple does not have something similar built in to OS X. Hover the mouse or screen pointer over Calendar in the Dock and all you get is the name ‘Calendar.’ Do it in HyperDock when Calendar is open and you’ll see a list of upcoming Events. Well done, useful, and modestly priced.
