Relaunch currently active apps after restart.

Overview

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 what you have open. Should you need to reboot or suffer a power outage Relaunch will offer the option to start everything back up for you when you next login.

You can take snapshots of any combination of OS X applications and name them by context, e.g. 'Work', 'Play', 'Development' etc. As well as remembering and launching applications that you had open it also knows how to re-open individual documents for over 20 popular mac applications, so not only will it restart the application itself, but it will also re-open the files you were working on when you took the snapshot.

Relaunch also allows you to get back to the task in hand quickly after say, a software update that requires a restart or a power cut using it's incredibly simple to set up 'Auto-Snapshot' feature. Instead of logging back into an empty desktop Relaunch will fire up everything that was running before your mac shutdown.

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.

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.

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".

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

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.

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.

Not worth $10. This should be 'Donate ware'.
