Are you a Mac user and love the elegant workflow of your computer? Why wouldn’t you? Mac is the ultimate in simplicity. The only problem is that sometimes that simplicity works against you by limiting its functions. For example, the Dock is meant to help you launch an application quickly but the more you add the less useful it is. Check out the Mac Dock Organizer, Station.
Station allows Mac users to organize their Dock applications into a hierarchical structure. In other words, levels. By creating leveled folders you’re now in a position to cleanly and simply access all of your apps from Station. Without Station you’re stuck in a world of ever-shrinking icons that are harder and harder to see. Station solves that while maintaining usability. Let’s say you want to access all of your apps related to editing. Well you can create an editing folder and assign whatever icon you want to it. Click on it and the folder opens, cleanly displaying all your editing-themed apps – without cluttering up your main dock.
“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.”
Station is available for $14.99 on all Macs. Head to the Mac App Store or TrueNorthSoftware.com to download it today.
