Install this application only if you
a) If you are using dock
b) And really do not want to use default dock application.
We are welcome to your comments and suggestions.
Start from the Launcher after installation to be workable.
This application opens the keyboard choose dialog each time you connect/disconnect your device to/from dock.
Use it to easily switch to your favorite on-screen keyboard when undocking and switch back to hardware keyboard when docking.
Also you can add a shortcut to the keyboard choosing dialog to your home screen or to the notification area.
Unfortunately this application cannot silently switch the keyboard for you. It's the Android security restriction which can be avoided only with root access. But this application doesn't require root.
Just launch the app once after installing to set it up and then never worry about it again. When you put the device in a dock the rotation is forced to the correct orientation for your dock and when you take it back out it reverts to your previous settings. No fuss, no hassle.
I've tested this on my Nexus 7 in the official Nexus 7 dock and I've also had reports it works with the Galaxy Nexus as well. Note that some third party docks or wireless chargers aren't recognised by Android as docks, but you can still use the app with them by enabling forced rotation when charging from the settings menu. Please get in touch to let me know if you have problems with your device or dock.
Credits: The app was written and designed by me. One of the screenshots shows Spotify, which I am in no way responsible for; it just demonstrates my app applying forced rotation from portrait to landscape. The launcher icon is courtesy of Android Asset Studio.
Control notification and ringer settings while your phone is docked. The settings with be restored when removed from the dock.
Fixed when ringer for notifications is on.
This currently only works for docks that have a sensor in them/cause the phone to go into a desk or car mode when docked. This will be changed in a future release to also work when just charging.
You can toggle Bright Dock on/off in the status bar while in a dock.
This currently does *NOT* change screen brightness.
For those with probs on the N1 Car Dock could you email us if the icon shows up?
If it works for other devices your lucky
This application is just a shortcut to the dock mode so you can launch it with out being docked.
useful if you want to change settings or just see what it looks like.
When you connect a charger or USB cable Dock Show activates automatically and prevents your device from going into sleep mode. You can still turn the screen on or off as usual by pressing the power button. When the external power source is removed Dock Show then de-activates automatically
Dock Show was designed to improve the experience for the ReaderDock F-Station, a recharging dock with amplified speakers specifically designed for the Kindle Fire, but it will work for most Android devices and while connected to any power source.
The days of having to repeatedly turn on your screen while listening to music or audio books is over! We hope you enjoy Dock Show.
NOTE: this will not work with Tasker (as previously stated), as Tasker does not support Locale condition plugins.
Change your settings based on your phone's dock state.
Works with Locale on Android 2.0 or higher on phones compatible with docks (e.g. Droid and Nexus One).
Email me if you encounter any problems.

Official Dock-plugin was not reliable for me, and this is much nicer looking and easier to use :-)
