Docktopus enhances the Dock with real-time statistics

updated 05:40 pm EDT, Thu September 22, 2005

Docktopus 1.0 released

Startly Technologies today released , its dock monitoring software for Tiger. Docktopus overlays custom badges on Dock icons, providing a convenient source of realtime information such as CPU or memory usage about each item--similar to the way Apple Mail uses a badge to display the number of unread messages. Doctopus adds access statistics such as available drive space, the number of files in a folder, or the size of a specific file or folder present. Docktopus also accesses commonly used files and nested folders from a pop-up menu. Other currently-available badges include iCal event peek, iTunes control, and Mail peek. Startly will also release a badge development kit to Mac OS X developers so they can create custom badges for specialized solutions and specific environments. It is available for Mac OS X Tiger and costs $20.
