Relaunch has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
Relaunch saves you time by taking Snapshots of which applications you are using, and starts them back up for you. Think of it as a launcher on steroids that lets you switch between work contexts with one click.

It's smart too! As well as starting groups of applications it also knows which documents you were working on in 30 popular applications and loads those up for you as well.

Relaunch sits in the Mac menu bar so it's always there - you can save and launch Snapshots on demand but Relaunch also features a ridiculously simple to use Auto-Snapshot mode. This sits in the background, periodically remembering more...

Aw nuts, Dreamweaver CS-3, my workhorse application, is not one of the thirty programs for which this app. will open specific documents, so I don't have any particular use for it. Add that one to the list, Mister Developer, and I'll snap this up.

By the way, Mr. Developer, I know your Help page invites us to suggest new apps. for your list via your Wiki, but your server is down, so this is the only way I have of (maybe) getting your attention. It would be helpful if you'd fix this.

I really wish that Relaunch would let you reset a Snapshot. Consider that you might relaunch a snapshot, then during the course of working, some of an applications open files might change, or you might open an additional program or close a program. In any case, at some later time your working space has changed. As Relaunch now stands, there is no way to easily capture that change; you must delete the old snapshot and make a new one, saving it and setting its name. It seems to me that providing a Reset feature for existing snapshots would be easy to program and reflects the way one would normally use the program, which is to say, to return to your workspace as it was when you last left it.

This app is genius! And what a generous price tag!

I can't wait to see how Relaunch develops in the future.

I have one mere wish, or suggestion:

- I think it would be nice if there was an option for the .snap files to be stored in the menu bar together with the rest of the app.

seems good but what would make me buy it is if it had a feature like AppStalker where it would monitor running applications and if for some reason one quits then it would relaunch it

I seem to be having a problem with the 1.3.1 disk image: "mounting failed" and "device not configured".

Hi Andrew,

Firstly are you using OS X 10.4 or higher? The image is compressed in such a way that it will only open on OS X 10.4.

If you are not then I'm not sure the application will work on earlier versions of OS X, you are welcome to try if you like. Send an email to info@wiredupandfiredup.com and I'll send you it packaged in a way that you should be able to open it.

If you are using 10.4 try re-downloading the image, if the problem persists email me and I'll try and help out.

Cheers,

Richy

Hi Richy,

Third time was the charm: the disk image opened fine this time. For the record I'm using 10.4.8.

Problems on my particular machine are solved since version 1.2.1. The developer of this very useful little app is extremely responsive, and customer oriented. Keep it up !!

Good initiative. Nice icon. Not working reliably (at all)on my machine (Mac Pro with 10.4.7): after restart v. 1.2 does not open apps according to latest snapshot. From a list of 10 apps/preference panes only Safari is launched (??) Relauncher preferences could include some more options (even for the 5 $ which I gladly paid for this shareware): a) enable/disable "auto-snapshot" b) chose snapshot of open apps only or snapshot of apps with certain documents open c)chose apps never to include into snapshot

Hi Manchie, do you know if this reliability issue was introduced in v1.2? i.e. 1.1 worked on your mac and 1.2 doesn't?

Tycho

I have to say I used v.1.1 for one day only before updating, and I restarted twice that day. No reliability problem to report there.

Hopefully this version 1.2.1 will fix your problem.

After several rebbots I can assure you that everything is working fine right now. I posted an updated review. Thanks a lot!

It's an interesting idea. If you could take snapshots and name them by project you'd have a nice way of changing easily from one suite of tasks to another. Use Relaunch by project with Virtual Desktop (or similar) and you've got a powerful little package.

Agreed. It's a nice little app, but one snapshot just isn't that useful, while having snapshots grouped by project would be truly handy.

Thanks for your feedback guys, I'm already working on this. The tricky part about it so far is not actually doing it, but making it nice and easy to use :)

I can imagine the interface is the tricky part.

I wonder if it would be useful to capture the icons of all open apps when you take a snapshot as a way of labelling it: as you scroll down the list you'd see all included icons appear. You'd probably need to allow the user to give it a name too.

Another approach is to allow the snapshot to appear as a Relaunch "document". This way you could name it, move it, place it in the Dock, keep it with the files it relates to, etc.. Designate a particular folder as your Relaunch Menu shortcut folder and all those snapshot documents could be available from the drop down menu.

Cheers Andrew, I really appreciate your feedback and thoughts, I really like the idea of saving snapshots as documents. I'll see what I can do!

No worries, Richy. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. It's a great product.

This is really a cool little app. Works just fine everytime, no glitches.
At $5, it's a steal......I do think I'd even pay $10 for it.....well, certainly $8; it's really unique, I don't think there's anything out there like it.

Definitely worth my 5 bucks. The Auto Snapshot feature is slick, just activate and forget. As far as the next improvement I would suggest adding the option to save more than one custom snapshot.
