ObjectDock Editor's Review

If you ask the Windows PC users that what they are missing the most? Then, most of the users would tell that they are missing the interface of Mac OS. Are you feeling the same way? It is possible to have a Mac-like interface on your PC, running on Windows platform. The answer goes a Yes! With the ObjectDock app, you could change your traditional and boring interface to a new, refreshing and easy-to-use one like that of the Mac.
 
Like every other software from Stardock, ObjectDock is simple and light. This means, you can go ahead to download ObjectDock, if you have few minutes in your hand. Within that little span, you could complete the easy installation process of the ObjectDock. No matter which version of the Windows you are using, you could install the ObjectDock in your system; but beware! You may lose a big chunk of your RAM to ObjectDock. You may experience that your PC is running a bit slower, after installing this app. This is a very easy to use app; however, it you may take some time to get familiarised with the set up and customization options of ObjectDock.
 
ObjectDock is both available in free and premium versions. If you are new to ObjectDock, then you should try the free version, of course, however, if you are already satisfied with the free version of this software, then you must not stay away from buying the premium version of this software at throw-away price.

In case of ObjectDock, you would get the full control over the dock that is you could customize everything of the dock according to your taste and requirements. You are free to place the dock anywhere on your computer screen. However, avoid keeping the dock on the top of the screen, as a dock placed on the top of your screen would drag your attention unnecessarily. You could also choose the color and size of the dock.

You could pin any program or file to the dock and access those from a single place. You could hide the Windows task bar. In addition to that you would find some docklets with the ObjectDock. With the help of these docklets, you could come to know about weather, time, and many more things. The number of docklets in premium version of the ObjectDock is much more than that in the free version.  
 
You can’t call it as a lightning fast app, as in some cases, it may take few seconds of more time to start up and during startup and when running ObjectDock crashes, more often than not.

Positive Points:
  -  Easy to manage and configure.
  -  Unlimited items can be added without any hassle.
  -  Can be placed anywhere on the screen.

Negative Points:
  -  Many features and options are available in paid version only.

Conclusion:
ObjectDock is a nifty little program for quick access to many applications. You can adjust its location to anywhere on the screen but some of its features are limited by commercial version. Users can definitely try ObjectDock, but there is better, free alternative available to it that is Rockedock.

Rating: 3.5/5
