Doesn’t really eject the drive
I just downloaded and tried this, and unfortunately I have to say it does not work. I have one USB volume that I have to eject almost daily, and it gets annoying going into a Finder window to do it. I downloaded this app and tried using it to eject the drive.I clicked on the menubar icon and chose unDock Now! It pops up a notification saying it is working, then it pops up a message very briefly saying it can’t unmount the drive, and THEN it pops up another message saying it successfully ejected the drive. But the drive is still mounted!
Does just what it says, simple and easy.
I use this app to undock from my Time Machine backup and it works great. Every once in a while I find myself needing to undock multiple connections (network, USB drive, etc.) which this app doesn’t do. If you need that capability you should get the full version of unDock, it disconnects multiple drives simultaniously. However, if you just need to disconnect a single drive, this app works perfectly.
Works for what I wanted
I needed a shortcut to eject all USB devices at once, particularly since I have a four port USB hub and a Superdrive hooked into my Macbook Air. This program does exactly that, ejects everything at once. Sure does beat clicking "Eject" on upwards of 6 "devices". The only problem, which is why I docked one star, is that I have to click "UnDock Now!" or press the keyboard shortcut TWICE to eject all things… My external hard drive has a partition and any time I use the program to eject everything, it only ejects one of the partitions. Hopefully they will fix this in the future but pressing a keyboard shortcut or clicking "UnDock Now!" twice sure does beat "Eject" 6 times.
Exactly what I needed
I have a time machine drive hooked up to my external monitor and it's annoying to unmount it when I want to disconnect my Macbook Pro to use somewhere other than my desk. Now I have an easy keyboard shortcut to eject and go. Everything what I needed, nothing I don't.
Functional, but a little misleading.
The name of this app is *unDock Lite* but the product discription is more for unDock than this Lite version.The first two-and-a-half paragraphs talk about unDock. The next one-and-a-half paragraphs *then* mention this app and it's limitations. It should be the other way around, as in more typical product descriptions.That said, it does what it says it does. In the style of the Mac App Store, the icon jumps from the page to the Dock, and you see a progress bar depicting installation. Very cool. However, the actual funtionality is invoked via the *menu bar* icon, not the Dock icon. Launch it via the Dock icon but use it via the menu bar.So it does what it says it does-- select *unDock Now!* and the first of your mounted removable media is ejected. Rinse, lather, repeat. The paid *unDock* will unmount all removable media with the initial click. unDock Lite is more of a demo app than anything as it's no easier to unmount one, two, or three items than it is to highlight those items and Ctrl-click.This is not a five star app to me, as it does nothing steller in function nor is it steller in execution or interface. It's a taste, not even a full demo, pure and simple. So I give it three stars, because it's ok, but it isn't much.Of course if I buy unDock, then it's a five star app for the dev.
