Ratings and Reviews
Great App but Auto Hide Does Not Work
The auto hide feature doesn’t seem to work. You can click the auto hide menu option and it will hide but the auto hide menu option doesn’t stay checked. Once you click on the tabs the auto hide feature stops working.
Edit: The auto hide does work but not on the left side of the screen. This may have to do with have a second display.
nice and simple does the job quickly and efficiently
I have been looking for this for some time its a way to get things off your desktop and into an easy tab that can sit any place on the sideline
only thing to add would be to have a larger tab but you can change that by adding space to the tab name and it works
now lets see if anything changes with the new updates to the osx
OS X Tablauncher Lite
Pretty good app, useful as supplement to the main OS X dock, e.g., for less commonly used applications/folders/documents that don’t need to be front and center that you can organize into groups and hide away a bit.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
