Hyper­Dock (€6.95 – about £5, hyper­dock. ba­hoom.com) adds new fea­tures to the Dock, per­haps the most use­ful be­ing pre­views of each win­dow that’s open in an app when you place the pointer over its icon. It also en­ables ad­di­tional func­tion­al­ity for spe­cific apps when you hover over their icon. For ex­am­ple, Cal­en­dar dis­plays up­com­ing events and iTunes dis­plays al­bum art and play­back con­trols. Hold­ing down å while click­ing an icon switches to Mission Con­trol for that app's win­dows (sim­i­lar to how Ex­posé worked in older ver­sions of OS X).

Fi­nally, Hyper­Dock fea­tures handy short­cuts for au­to­mat­i­cally re­siz­ing win­dows. Hold­ing ≈+å and tap­ping the ar­row keys re­sizes the ac­tive win­dow and moves it to the left- or right-hand side of the desk­top. It adds Win­dows Snap-like short­cuts to OS X as well.
