Inspiration for visual and user interaction can be taken from the Sony Vaio Gate dock.

1.4.1. Issues:

Interaction & performance:

• Improve overall performance

• Enhance user interaction (in general animate icon rollovers/transition effects)

• When docked theirs either an icon that follows the mouse or another visual effect so when the user mouse hovers close to the doc bar it reacts to prompt use/interaction. *See Sony Doc Bar.

When the tab bar is in use Google Chrome tabs become inactive.

• Fix: Move the Tab bar to the left and ensure theirs no Google Chrome tab issues.

Media Player play back performance issues on full screen:

• Fix: Ensure dock bar will disappear when full screen mode is on using Media Player and ensure theirs no other video playback issues.


• The application must be a vanilla product with the ability to run without any branding and offer the ability to add/update a logo.

*Please confirm how this will be achieved & managed on an ongoing basis.

Additional functionality:

Software update:

• The ability to make remote software upgrades or visual updates to the dock bar on preinstalled/existing PC’s

• The ability to add or remove categories and content on preinstalled/existing PC’s

*Please confirm how this will be achieved & managed on an ongoing basis.

Application settings:

• Remove/Disable colour options within the current tab bar settings.

• Visual icon to switch on/off “load at start-up”

If possible we would also require some reporting feature. This will be an extra cost/quote to the above brief and agreed prior to commencement with the chosen freelancer.


Create a client admin user login (web)
-Reports how many times an application within the doc bar is downloaded
-Most viewed categories/items
-How many times the user clicks the dock bar (Daily user average?)
-How many users immediately shut it down after opening. (Percentage of total?)
