Seems nice, but has a major drawback.
It can't access subfolders.
For example, I added my "scripts" folder, which contains other folders, like "AppleScripts" and "Terminal Scripts", but when I try to click on them in the menubar, it will not show the folder contents of the 2nd folders.
This is a major limitation for me. I hope it can be fixed.

I figured it out. It's really a strange thing to do, but you have to check a box by each folder to get them to work.

If the Dock is getting to small for the number of applications, this is a great way for quick and easy access to your favorite apps - straight from the menu bar. Nice!

On my PowerMac w/ Leopard 10.5.8

This update causes the app to hang temporarily at launch and periodically with use thereafter.

If it helps get this sorted out;
I'm getting this message in System console: [0x0-0x2b02b].net.mactips-lib.aLaunch[773] aLaunch: unknown type name "ICN#". "l8mk". "il32". "icl8". "icl4". "ics#". "s8mk". "is32". "ics8".
"ics4" .
Thanks for a great app!

aLaunch does exactly what I'm looking for, but it's a pain to use it. Why? It constantly crashes and locks up (version 4.1). Most importantly, I have twenty apps listed and it's using 68mb of memory - this is unacceptable for a menubar launcher, which should use at most 10mb (in my opinion). This memory usage is higher than Dropbox, which is syncing 48gb and over 10,000 files. Also, it shows "Recent Apps" at the top of the menu, even though I've turned "Recent Apps" off (turning it on doesn't enable it either). If these problems were corrected, I'd have no problem giving it five stars.

Love the program, but sometimes after a restart it does not work. It shows in the menubar, but when clicking on the icon nothing happens. Running 10.8.4 on an iMac (10,1).

Thanks

I don't know what is wrong with this application on my system. Until now i was unable to test it cause it keep crashing on startup after the first configuration.
Downloaded the updated version to see what changed. Nothing. Crash on startup after the first config.

Oh well! I use Quicksilver all the time anyway...
