Does what it says: Reveals preference files instantly. Now if it could also edit or at least view them...

Check out version 1.1

It will try to open a plist file with any app that is associated with the plist file type.

Either have Property List or Pref installed. Both apps are free.

Takes a long time to come up (because it's locating all the plists, no doubt) with no feedback, then nukes my menu bar when it's in focus. Finally, when I chose a plist to look at, it brought of Plist Editor from Apple's dev tools, but didn't open the requested plist.

Not to be confused with "PlistEdit Pro," a different product from a different developer.
