Recent Menu is a promising app, but in the end I found its definition of "recent" too limiting to be useful. It appears that a file is only considered "recent" if it's been opened in an application. Creating a file in an app and saving it doesn't count. Downloading a file or copying a file from an external source doesn't count.

I really like the ability to create and customize "filters," so that I can group files however I want, and show only the types of files I want to see. If RM could show all recent files by including files created or modified recently (this could be an option in prefs), I would buy the app.

Uhh. I'll just use the one that's already under the Apple Menu.
You know, the built in one?

Recent Menu is somewhat more configurable than the built-in list available under the Apple Menu. With Recent Menu you may freely decide which file types to show in the list of recent item. The Apple Menu is not configurable and only shows applications, documents and servers.
