All-in-one apps have seen quite the rise in the last few years, and for good reason, as they allow you to get more work done and stay more organized by bringing together some of the most famous and widely used web apps out there.
OneDock is one such tool and, truth be told, it has a lot of things going for it. In short, OneDock is a modern and efficient application that all your favorite web apps under one roof, basically ensuring that your emails, tasks, calendar events, and communication platforms are always within your reach. To use it, you only need a valid Google account (to log in), and a working Internet connection.
Let’s start with OneDock’s most important aspect, namely the apps it supports. These are widely varied and include most of the Google apps we’ve come to rely on such as Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Calendar, as well as various Microsoft-related platforms such as OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Skype, Slides, and Teams.
The list is complete with other famous entries such as Asana, Jira, MailChimp, SalesForce, LinkedIn, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Flow, Todoist, Shopify, GitHub, Bitbucket, Instagram, Box, Discord, Wunderlist, Tumblr, Basecamp, Airtable, Paypal, and many others.
Even though the concept of all-in-one platforms of the sort is not exactly new and while there are various cross-platform and open-source alternatives out there already (such as Franz and Rambox), OneDock has a few aces up its sleeve.
For once, it has a Dashboard feature that provides you with a clear overview of all the important information fed directly from the apps you’ve already added to the list. That’s not all, as the Dashboard itself is remarkably customizable thanks to fully resizable panels. These panels are automatically populated with notifications from their specific sections making them extremely convenient.
Another great feature is the One Search. It basically allows you to search for any type of content from the apps you logged into. You can search for emails, files, to-dos, notes, contacts across all your SaaS apps from a single place.
As mentioned before, apps such as OneDock are not new, but it seems users are quite reluctant to really give them a shot. In some cases, there may be fears about privacy infringement, in other cases, the GUIs are not customizable and pretty clunky. This is not the OneDock’s case, though, as the app’s GUI is very well-made, making the tool look and feel like a modern app should.
