Loved the app, but it stopped working in Mountain Lion update 10.8.2.

Author made it free too.

MenePrefs won't allow me to create a custom list. I'm running Snow Leopard.

This app would be so perfect with this functionality.

Not needed in Snow Leopard because right-mouse (aka click-and-hold) on the System Preferences Dock icon pops up a HUD menu of the available PrefPanes.

That only works if the Sys Prefs is open

I love this little app. Unfortunately in Leopard it's broken. Can't customise at all and the 'category' option simply doesn't work. Hopefully there'll be an upgrade soon.

I have the same problem with Leopard. I too hope there will be an upgrade!!

If the developer is no longer supporting this application, it would be nice if some one else took over!

Realized I didn't rate this in my last comment, and as I like it, why not throw in my stars.

As discussed below, there are other apps that do the same thing for free, but none I tried work as well, as quickly, and as elegantly in their current versions. It's worth the $5. (Although I do think Apple should include this as part of the OS).

One of those little things I wasn't sure I needed, and then found I used a lot.

Sadly PrefsMenu has lost some functionality in Tiger, so most all the icons (all apple functions) are now generic. No big deal, but loses something both asthetically and in ease of use (my eye naturally goes to the icons before the words). So, for me the $5 is worth it.)

I use PrefsMenu which has the same functionality that this product claims to have but is free. I found it on MacUpdate.

Although I like Menu Items, I use prefling, because it speaks German. But anyway, clean and nice app.
