Docktopus v1.0.2 | Universal | Mac OS X | 3.2MB
Overlay custom real-time info on dock icons
Similar to the way Apple Mail uses a badge to display the number of unread messages from its Dock icon, Docktopus allows users to overlay custom badges on their Dock icons. These badges give users a convenient source for real-time information about the items in their Dock, such as an application's CPU or Memory usage. With badges like the iTunes Control and iCal Event Peek, Docktopus provides users with a new way of using their Dock - allowing them to control and get information from applications directly from their Dock icons.
Docktopus adds the following functionality to the Dock:
Access statistics like drive space available, the number of files in a folder and the size of a specific file or folder present in the Dock.
View upcoming iCal events by simply rolling the mouse across the badge.
Access commonly used files and nested folders from a pop-up menu.
Play QuicKeys Shortcuts, AppleScripts and Automator Workflows.
Get instant access to general information such as CPU usage or Memory consumed by a given application.
Display iTunes track information, cover art and control iTunes.
View the number of unread Mail messages in specified accounts and mark messages as junk.
