What's New in Version 1.5
OS X Yosemite compatibility
So far extremely impressed
The one feature I have always missed coming from Vista was the snap feature. This app does a great job and then some. Beyond the snapping of windows I love the preview you get from the dock. I’ve never really cared for Expose or Spaces and when my desktop gets busy I don’t find either particular useful for me. With the preview from the dock I can immeditaly go to any running window of an associated icon on the dock with minimal effort. More over I can create new instances from the dock preview of any particular window. I use a mutli display setups at work and home, while doing development it makes it really handy to snap all my windows evenly on all displays. In all this is the product I have been waiting for years for on OSX and my workflow has gotten much better when my desktop gets out of control.
Love this app, just a couple of annoyances
Love this app. Some of my favorite features of OS X are Mission Control and the ease of MultiTasking. I wish I could get used to full screen mode, can’t stand it, because it would be nice to use four fingers to flip between apps. One of the main reasons I really like HyperDock is I am a huge fan of multiple desktops in OS X. I go so far as to have a Safari window for specific tabs in it’s own desktop, and this app makes it much quicker to open the right window for what I’m trying to do.
Why only 3 stars? I want to be able to drag to reorder the app windows in the Window Previews. Sometimes they get screwed up. I would prefer if the Window Previews were in chronological order for Desktop 1, Desktop 2, etc.
essential for for any user
I’m not sure what Apple is thinking, but the features added by this applications are essential for any user. It makes it easy to resize windows and ‘clip’ them onto half the screen. They’re really nice for people familiar with windwos, but they’re just plain ‘ol good features to have. I messaged the creater with some questions after the release of Yosemite release and he got right back to me. The updated version of this app works perfectly on Yosemite.
