Gets better and better

A worthy inheritor of Dragthing and its ilk. Speed dock started out promising and -- through excellent support and improvement -- has become quite wonderful.

Thank you for you feedback. There is an auto-hide option in the settings. As for switching desktops, can you please contact our support with more details of this request? Thanks!

Great program!

Love this app. It mimics the functionality of the classic macOS version of the late, lamented DragThing. One thing I wish was the ability to customize each of the tabs with colors and textures. I hope that makes it in a future version.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! If you update to the latest version, hovering over items to see their names is already added to the app. As for your login issue, check the login items in your System Preferences or get in touch with our support to resolve this.

Great app with amazing support

I like to have tons of apps in the dock and the original dock was looking way to small. SpeedDock solved my problem allowing me to have more than one!

It works flawslesly.

And the best part: The developer, Ron, gave me amazing support, answering all my stupid questions with infinite patience.

I recommend!
