"Documentation explains it all"

*What* documentation? The read-me says how to pay for it, how to start it and how to quit it. Nothing about how to *use* it, and I don't feel like taking the time to figure it out tonight.

TigerLaunch is free, it works w/10.2.x and it requires the zero documentation that Shortcut includes. Of course, it doesn't do sub-menus, which Shortcut *looks* like it might do.

For that matter, you can put a folder in the dock & have instant, system-wide access to anything you want.

Nice one, but a bit sloppy in places. The prefs window should not (read: must not) have the brushed metal look. The Apple HUI guidelines are pretty clear about where to use it or not (and Apple themselves violated their own rule by applying this look to Safari... sigh).

Listing this thing as "free" here and then demanding $10 is simply bad style, though.
