Startupizer is an advanced, yet simple-to-use login-items handler. It greatly enchances login items from your account settings in OS X System Preferences. You can choose among several criteria which determine whether and when a specific item should be started. Different criteria can be freely combined for each item in the login list. This can dramatically reduce the ammount of time required for your computer to wake up and allow you to be more productive!

So far so good. I am quite pleased with the robustness of this little app so far as it exceeded my expectations. I have needed to control the order of app startup for a very long time now with wonderful ScreenRecycler in the mix since I have wanted to have it start first and then delay app startup for the apps that are specific to that display for a very long time. I'll give it a 5 star when I have restarted my system a few times and am convinced it works well (I don't restart my workstation very frequently so it might be a little while, but wanted to at least get a good word up here).

Crashed and burned on 2 Macs, both running Mavericks. Startupizer launched but could not import my startup items then, after asking it to delete the current preferences file, would crash. This repeated every time I relaunched it.

The great thing about this app is that it keeps in sync with the login items of Mac OS. If a new app adds itself to the login items Startupizer will notice you on the next startup and you can Import or Ignore that at. This gives you hassle-free control over your startup items. Nevertheless, I miss the option to delay (and maybe quit) apps after the startup. This would make Startupizer the quintessential login items manager for the Mac.

Nice and usefull app.

I updated from the free Light version to Startupizer 2, but had to re-configure all login items because there no possibility to import from the Light version. That was export from Startupizer Light back to login items, then import all in Startupizer2 and configure conditions for each application.

The author never answered to my email asking if it was possible to import from the Startupizer Light.

As a feature request, I would recommend to display in the main application list window the condition setup for each application (disabled, load on key press, not load on key press, etc.)

Ditto. I just upgraded from Startupizer Lite and experienced the same thing. One thing that did help is that before installing I opened Startupizer Lite, highlighted all entries, and returned them to System Preferences. When I launched Startupizer, it remembered the order of my startup items, just not the enabled/disabled settings. Remembering the order saved me a good amount of work.

Does startupizer allow for the creation of multiple login "lists" - thanks for the help. It looks great but since I can't try it I am hesitant. Cheers!

Startupizer 2 is out. For me, this app does a better job at login items than Apple's. Add the benefit of sets to activate and it becomes even better!

Really interested in something like this (I currently have 21 login items). Problem is, does this work by importing all your login items and replacing them with just an entry for itself? If so, if I try the app and don't like it, is there an option to re-instate all my login items without having to recreate each one manually? Also, how does it handle apps that check automatically check login items to see if they're present (re-inserting themselves if they're not there)?

Answered my first question by downloading the trial - yes, it does allow you to export items back to System Prefs.
