    I got it, it activates the dock screen just fine- Looks cool.
    My question is:
    Is there anything I can't do if I just use this app instead of buying the dock aside from the dock holding the Droid in a convenient position?

    Nope... the app activates the hidden part of the OS that opens up when you put the Droid in the dock, so they are essentially the same, except for, as you said, the dock physically holding up the droid in a convenient position.

    You've got everything that someone who shelled out $30 or so for the dock has... except the dock!

    Dockrunner locked my phone in landscape mode

    Installed it but then display remained stuck in landscape mode. Had to uninstall and reboot to get back to where display would change orientation based on phone position.

    When you go from the dock screen to home via the home button you have to hit the dock runner icon again to deactivate it so you won't have the orientation problem.

    Orientation

    Thanks TexasPI. That works. The dockrunner icon is basically a toggle.

    Or you can go under notifications menu and click on DockRunner Active to toggle it off as well.

    I really like it but find its bright at night, even on the lowest brightness setting. I use my phone as my alarm to wake up so I guess I will have to deal with it or flip the phone upside down. Good app though and free!
