Ratings and Reviews
Works well, mostly.
This app is great. I don’t have the problems mentioned in the reviews below so I assume they’re outdated. I do have two issues:
1. Rebooting forces me to login to each app. I use four apps from gsuite so that’s four 2FA authentications.
2. The dock shortcuts I create turn into “?” icons when I reboot and have to be re-created.
Otherwise, works flawlessly and handles a few cases that other apps like this fail with.
Instant can't-live-without-it utility
Bulldock Browser does one really specific job and does it very well. It was one of those utilities I didn't know I needed until I used it. I love being able to designate any web page as its own app, so it appears with its own icon in the App Switcher and dock. For each web page droplet Bulldock creates, I can specify which browser engine I want it to use (limited, I think, by what I have installed on my system), whether it appears in regular mode or with condensed chrome, even whether it uses the mobile interface or not (since mobile UIs tend to be more space efficient, I assume). I haven't yet explored all of the options available for creating droplets, but so far everything has worked great. I had Bulldock create one droplet for my web-based email, another for my web-based job tracking app, another for Google Calendar, and finally one for Netflix. Each has its own icon and appears separately in App Switcher and the dock. Each uses the browser engine that best suits it. I can leave them open all day and none of them get confused with any of the regular old web pages I open through the course of the day. Brilliant.
I had high hopes.
I saw this on Product Hunt and despite there being free options available, this looked a bit more streamlined and it looked as if the developers had paid attention to the design details so I purchased it in order to declutter my multiple redundant Jira/Bitbucket tabs.
The app creation process was easy and I love how quickly I was able to get going (note that if you’re giving the web pages custom icons, your icons must be square in order for them not to be squished strangely).
Unfortunately, neither of my main two uses for this app are working. The new Bitbucket interface doesn’t load all the options, and the Jira dashboard doesn’t seem to be loading at all. There aren’t any options while setting up, so I’m not sure what could be going wrong.
This is an early stage app, and if the developers are able to fix these issues, I will update my review!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
