A great, highly recommended add on. Makes managing multiple windows SO MUCH easier. On top of that, great screen management.

I like this app a lot. I find it much easier to manage my open windows by hovering over dock icons (which is what this app offers) compared to using expose.

However the app (version 1.1.3) does not work properly in a multi-monitor setup where the dock is not on the primary display. In this setup, the preview window goes on the primary display rather than above the dock, which is very annoying.

Also, in my experience the support is not good. I have sent the support 2 emails with questions and did not received an email back.

I've found this app very useful. Its main purpose is to bring Windows 7's Aero Peek and Aero Snap to Mac OS X. Hover over an app's icon in the Dock and it will show you thumbnails of the app's windows. Hover over the thumbnail to preview the window in full size or click it to switch to that window. Drag a window to a screen edge to have it automatically fill the whole screen or just that half of the screen. HyperDock also includes some enhancements to make it easier to move and resize windows and move windows between spaces. Some apps (currently iTunes, iCal, and BusyCal) have special Dock previews to show currently playing song and the day's events. You can also set up different clicks on Dock icons for different actions—for example, you could kill an app by middle-clicking on it.

Quite nice. Nothing spectacular though.

Froze my computer. Uninstalled.
