Is there a software like RocketDock that launches in a corner?

Hi.

I was wondering is there a software like RocketDock (or some of it's alternatives) that launches when you hover in a corner (for example top right one).
I'm looking for something like this:

so that when i click on an icon or folder it opens another "quarter circle" with more folder or apps to be launched like this:

Nearest that I can come up with is SliderDock. Unfortunately the quarter circle option isn't an option that's included.

I don't like it much either. Actually I prefer Quick Cliq for application and file launching but there's no "circles" and no hover feature. It just remains hidden from view until you launch it via Winkey+Z. It launches on your desktop in whatever position you choose by clicking on a blank part of your desktop before launching it.

This is what it looks like on my machine:

Here's the menu editor:

It's portable so to run it on startup it needs an elevated shortcut in your startup folder:

The advantage is that you can keep your desktop clear of shortcuts and icons.

If interested here's a link to the manufacturer's website:
