DockFun! is a tool to run an infinite number of OS X's Dock. So that you will run a dock for a specific purpose (a dock for Internet, one for Graphic, etc.).

It is so easy to use that you will make docks as you would do an iTunes playlist.

But don't call it a "Dock Switcher App" in fact DockFun! is much more, it's the ultimate solution for organize your Applications and main Documents.
It integrates Hot-keys and the amazing Autolaunch feature, which lets you launch all together more Applications at once, furthermore with the Donelleschi Docks you will be able to have more docks at once on your desktop!

The code has been written in Cocoa, the most powerful and integrated development environment for Mac OS X. DockFun! runs on Jaguar (10.2) and on Panther (10.3) too.

Finally key feature is the design, DockFun! has and will always have a terrific human interface! We want it to be a cool tool further than useful!.

Here are some key features of "DockFun":
Organize your Applications and files in few Docks and not in just one.
For example a dock for the Applications you use for internet, one for Graphic, etc..
The Dockpit will be tool you will use for setting up your docks and its properties.
"The cockpit for the dock rider" it is the heart, the core of DockFun! where you will handle all your docks and its files just like you would do with an iTunes playlist.This is one of the 3 ways of reaching DockFun! commands.
Thanks to the Status Bar Menu you will access to all DockFun! commands and power through the Status Bar Menu. No mess on your desktop!
It makes also possible to launch single App from a Dock without having it enabled, as well as activate the Autolaunch.
The Status Bar Menu can be enabled and disabled in the Preferences.
You will set here also the hot-keys and the autolaunch items. Furthermore for each dock you will set its preferences too.
This features lets you launch all together few Applications of the same dock with just a click.
Every docks has its own set of Autolaunch Apps which you will set in the Dockpit. For example the Internet Dock: Safari, Mail, iChat, ICQ. These Apps will be launched all together when the user will click on the Autolaunch command.
This is one of the 3 ways of reaching DockFun! commands. It offers a tool to switch between docks, open Donelleschi Docks and activate Autolaunch (option-click on dock name).
