YzDock is an application and document launcher for Windows platforms. This application is still in its early days, so it has a lot of bugs and some functionalities are not yet available. But I like where this particular app is getting to. I've tried other applications that try to replicate the Mac OS X dock by imitating its looks. Instead of doing that, YzDock copies the functionality and transfers it to an environment that works great in Windows. The dock comes empty by default. So, you need to add your own applications by hand. Adding an application is as easy as dragging the desktop shortcut to the dock down at the bottom of the screen. There is no limit for the applications that you can put in your dock. However, the more applications, the smaller the icons are. I like how the icon gets bigger if you put your mouse pointer over it. I couldn't tell the difference with the Mac counterpart. Looks-wise this isn't the best dock I have seen for Windows, but depending on your icons' quality, it can look good. Also, more important than looks is functionality, and YzDock works great, even in this early beta stage. The latest version of this application is 0.83. However, this review deals with version 0.8.
