Nice start with good interface, but Secrets is already does this much more extensively.In this effort the developer is seemly attempting to 'reinvent the wheel.'

Competition is good and while nothing intrinsically wrong with this, I fail to appreciate the rationally of creating this product when an functioning, almost identical product already exists.

Additionally there are many more maintenance tools and applications that also set hidden preferences. It seems already to be a crowded market.

This is not to say that the developer is doing anything wrong or it is a bad tool, but rather to point out that perhaps their efforts would be better directed towards more useful or unique product.

I was going to suggest he improve on Secrets. He seems talented and his efforts would not go unnoticed if he worked on the existing and more complete app.

I couldn't agree more. AGAControls is nicely done, but Secrets is more comprehensive. Perhaps a combined effort-which could lead to a shareware product-might be a good alternative.

I appreciate the comments, thank you. I should make it known that AGAControls was one of my training programs to learn Cocoa. So, in many respects I was reinventing the wheel with the purpose of learning Cocoa. Secrets looks interesting, perhaps I will work on it at some point.
