It is quite useful at times, although the start button does get in the way of the dock in your launcher. I found myself toggling the app on and off quite a bit. You can move the Taskbar around though to suit your needs. But on a tablet with a mouse and keyboard the app really becomes useful. You can almost pretend you have a Windows tablet.
