Digg our site here.


So a friend and I have been working very hard for the past week on Dockulicious.com.


Basically, it is a place for people to upload and share the docks they have created for Leopard. Unlike the other sites that are just compilations of all the docks out there where people really get no proper credit, this allows you to upload your dock and set up a profile with a link to your website, etc. You can also download other people's docks and comment on them.

We also made an app called the Dockulicious DockSwitcher. The way it works is you take the dock you download from our site (as a .zip file) and drag it on to the Dockulicious app icon. It replaces the current dock you have and restarts the dock so you see the changes immediately. We really wanted to make it as simple as possible. We've been letting others test it for a week or so now and all the kinks have been ironed out so go ahead and try it. Works with not only 3D but ALSO 2D docks.

All of this has not been completely released to the public yet, so I figured I'd show it to the MacNN forums crowd first. I'm sure you'll find some bugs/things we missed, so if you do please let us know and we'll get on it.


Stuff we are working on for now:

Any advice, feedback, etc. would be much appreciated!




Mods: I really don't intend for this to be a spam post. I feel it is genuinely Mac related and I've been a member of these forums for quite a while now. If you feel this thread belongs elsewhere, then please accept my apologies and move it to the proper sub-forum.

Nice site...I like seeing so many popping up. Another great site, when it's up, is leoparddocks.com

Even though you don’t have many 2D submissions yet, I think it would be great if you divided the Docks section into 3D submissions and 2D submissions. I use the 2D dock, so it’s a PITA to wade through a bunch of 3D designs.

Thanks for the feedback, we will definitely consider that option. I think it's a good idea.. We've only got one 2D so far (Solace Dock) so more would definitely help too!

You gotta upload some more people!

I thought I'd give this a try so registered, downloaded the app and a doc (Watervibe) and tried to make it work (emphasis on try). If I double-click to open the app it bounces and then closes without any kind of message. If I try and drag a dock theme onto the app it's pretty much the same. And since there's no contact or support, I'm opening AppZapper and cleaning it out and will wait for another solution.
I know this is a free application but no love for the user having problems?
