An easy application to turn off applications’ Dock tiles

2007-07-24 07:12:28 -08:00

I just released an application called Configure Application Dock Tile. The purpose of this app is to make it easy to turn an app’s Dock tile off or on.

I first had the idea when making some screencasts (including the Adium screencasts). Normally, iShowU shows up in the Dock, and I don’t like having that artifact in the screencast; I find it distracting. So I wrote this app to make it easy for me to turn off the Dock tile in future versions of iShowU.

(If you downloaded this earlier today, please do re-download it, as I overhauled the user interface. That’s why this post disappeared in the meantime.)

    Dock “tile”? What does that mean? Never heard the term before. Do you mean turn off the Dock icon?

  2. Peter Hosey Says:

    Yes. I’ve always called them tiles, rather than referring to the icon on the tile.

    The only thing thwarting broader adoption of this habit is the fact that the Dock doesn’t have lines between the tiles.
