I wish to add my voice to the choir with an alternative. Almost everything this developer does can either be done for free either with the previously mentioned "Quick Access" or with "On My Command" by the same developer. On My Command allows anyone with a miniscule amount of Unix knowledge to create a CM from a Unix command or Applescript if it is not already in its library which now numbers around 300 commands.

I like this guy and some of what he does amplifies the Finder where the Finder long ago should have taken care of matters itself, but at the end of the day there's another question: namely that a lot of this stuff is simple command line stuff and if you ever knew (and you should know) how to use the command line today (pick up a Missing Manual maybe?) then you wouldn't need this stuff. I think the author is probably trying to do a good thing, but I would recommend he set his sights a littler higher, on some non-trivial programming, and not continually target the rawest newbies in search of a few bucks pizza money (do they have pizzas in Thailand?).

I wish the author no harm, but honestly, you should be able to do this stuff yourself without the aid of additional software. Most of it at any rate.

Here we got a new OS few are familiar with and the early comers think 'let's wrap some easy command line Unix stuff in a Cocoa GUI and sell it'. I don't think that's good. You beat them by learning yourselves.

I agree with jim above. This is a fine appl' but why buy it when Quick Access is essentially the same application for FREE ?

If you are considering this I just ran into a simple elegant, fast similar product, just released, called XMenu that requires NO configuration, unless you want to. It sits in the right hand corner of your menu bar seems to work with everything, but only in Panther. Best of all, it's Free. You might want to try it and compare in order to make an informed decision before spending your money. Himmel Bar is also an interesting free alternative that I used to use, but I like this better.

Please ignore this. I got this confused with another product had written. My mistake. Sorry. Please ignore this, although XMenu is still a good Menu Launcher.

If you're interested in this, I suggest downloading a demo of Ittec as well (can be found on MacUpdate). Personally I think it's easier to configure (it's a clean little preference pane) and has a lot more features (check out the developer's site under "Tips" & "Ittec Preferencs" -- there's loads of stuff you can do, for the same price as Launch Items.

If this product interests you, you may be interested in reading the reviews and giving QuickAccessCM a try so that you will be making an informed decision. It has similar functionality and it is free.

Long ago I had difficulty with the Finder crashing, but trashing LaunchItems Preference files fixed it. Since then, I've had no problems. LauchItems X works beautifully and keeps getting better. I'm fully satisfied that I have recovered the functionality of FinderPop that I was looking for.

I've used Launch Items since it was first launched to replace the utility of FinderPop. It has just kept getting better and better. If you use contextual menu items to navigate your drives drives this is the most complete set of CMMs you'll ever find. AND the functionality just keeps growing!
