ObjectDock is a small application designed to those that use the Windows operating system but want to change the aspect of it. This way, the Mac OS interface will be replicated onto the desktop and besides the nice design, it will also bring a plus of functionality. The dock will be placed on the desktop and it can be moved on each side of it, being redesigned each time in order to look good. The features of it are animated and the user can tweak a lot of settings in order to change the animations type, the duration of them or the size of the icons.
Featuring a simple installation process, the application will start whenever the computer boots up and it will load the dock in the saved position. Right clicking the settings area or accessing it from the system tray area allows users to change design and functionality settings. The animations can be completely stopped or they can be tweaked to be faster or slower, depending on each one’s needs. The icons can also be resized and this way, more or less will have space on the dock, but they might become more visible if their size is increased.
There are also various docklets, or widgets, that can be added on the screen for even more functionality. Using them, a person can find information about his local weather, or about the resource usage of his computer. There are various icon packs that can be added into the application and more are available on fan sites. Using the tool, a user can keep his desktop much more organized as all of his required icons can be placed with ease in ObjectDock. Adding icons is simple, as the process is achieved using the drag and drop feature, which is also used for removing icons.
