Email me when discounted: 
launch does everything open (Apple's command-line launching program) does, and:
  • opens URLs, directly or in your preferred helper application
  • lets you specify applications by their four-character creator (e.g. 'ToyS') or Java-style bundle ID (e.g. com.apple.scripteditor), both of which allow you to move or rename an application without changing references to it
  • asks applications to print documents, something the OS X Finder doesn't let you do any more
  • launches applications in the background
  • launches Carbon applications in Classic
  • reports errors intelligibly
  • shows more...

What's New

Version 1.2.2:
  • Use non-deprecated API for marking files as stationery
  • Display type and creator codes containing null bytes
  • Display ProDOS types if encoded as HFS types
  • Display AppleWorks mixed-case filenames by decoding ProDOS auxiliary types if present

Requirements

OS X 10.8 or later

Actually, the Launch! guy got me beat by a few months; he released his product in April 2001, whereas I didn't start working on launch until August 2001. I don't think there was ever much potential for confusion as this one had a lowercase l, no exclamation point, and was command line instead of GUI.

In any case, Launch!

...oops, sorry, that got cut off. Here's the correct comment:

In any case, Launch! is no more, and I can't believe launch is already five years old! Enjoy version 1.1.

I believe that there's already a third party program called Launch on the OS X platform. This clearly is a duplication. I'd think the author should review.

it's likely the author of the other Launch is the one that needs to review, as this has been around for ~5 years now.
