    Just bought it and installed, seems like a bit of a waste of money, it changes to a dock I don't want, puts a little blue line under open icons, doesn't bounce when I get a text, mail etc. anyone else using it? Maybe I'm missing something.

    Edit: I'll take some of that back, it does bounce, but won't bounce bitesms, I have the default message app hidden, no need to have it, so I bet that would be bouncing, not very good is it. The bounce animation is horrible too, the shadow disappears then comes back and the top of the icon disappears under the wallpaper, could be cos of my set up, but still.......

    Definitely bugs with it.

    BiteSMS isn't bouncing when I get a notification and a few other applications.

    Others are experiencing the same issue from what I read on iDownloadBlog.

    Watch out!!

    If you have %HooksLaw installed along with this new and innovative app you will see your iPhone perform tricks it was never intended to perform (and then quickly, subsequently, shut down into safe mode). :(

    Apparently the Phone and Mail apps are always running which is why they'll always have a light under them if they're on the dock and is why I've stopped using this tweak.

    It's overly priced for a bit of eye candy and the devs don't seem to have thought about everything before releasing it. That's fine but they haven't mentioned they'll be modifying how things work which is disappointing. It would make more sense to me if they made it work based on what apps are in the switcher.

    Thanks for that !

    I do like it especially the bouncing of the icon which mimicks my MBA dock.

    Yes eye candy but pleasing to the eye.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to use it but I hate to use tweaks that don't work like they should or at least the way I want them to :p

    same developer who gave us springtomize. my own theory (LOL) is that he put EVERYTHING into springtomize, and there's nothing left to do... :D

    I don't think any other tweak I've used has been installed/uninstalled as quick as ActiveDock, just felt really pointless and ugly, my own opinion of course.
