Station is a multilevel (hierarchical) launcher that promotes a more natural organization of applications and documents into folders. With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow with an uncluttered look and feel. Scalability is greatly increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.
Productivity is increased because related items can be grouped together into a single folder. For example, one folder can contain work related items and another folder gaming items. Another useful feature of Station is the ability to launch, all at once, the items in a launch folder. This is useful when switching between tasks like business and spreadsheets to graphics work. With ten levels of folders available, enough space is provided to spread out even the most diverse set of applications and documents.
Station also implements scrollbars when a launch panel exceeds the width or height of the screen. This design also does away with the need for magnification or shrinking the height of the launch panel so your icons remain one height thus making them more readable.
Version 2.0 is a major update to Station including the following features.
- Panel sets
- Keyboard navigation
- Auto hide switch global key

Ratings and Reviews
An excellent app to supplement the Dock
This app comes very close to replacing the Dock. I don’t keep any apps in the Dock any longer. My Dock only shows currently running apps and all frequently used apps are kept in Station. I love this app. I hope the author will keep improving it, such as adding separators and colorized folders.
Good Replacement for Dragthing
I was a long time user of Dragthing, but alas it is no longer being developed. Station provides equivalent functionality and works quite well. Version 2 adds some nice new features. The author is quite responsive to suggestions and inquires.
Well worth the cost
Works very well, exactly what I wanted. Clears up desktop. Two wish items, auto sort option and multi layers for same station item (you can just break a list up, but would be nice to have option).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
