    Is there anyway to hide application from the dock but still running in the background??

    If you are the developer of the application, I know you can for sure. If you aren't the developer then I don't know of a way. But it might be possible.

    Edit the Info.plist inside the app bundle, I can't remember the key you need to add to it I think it's something like LSUIElement - 1 or something.

    Edit the Info Plist add key LSUIElement - Boolean - True

    LSUIElement - Specifies whether the app is an agent app, that is, an app that should not appear in the Dock or Force Quit window.
