Take control of Lion’s Launchpad

In a recent blog post I detailed how to use advanced SQL statements to remove applications for OS X Lion’s Launchpad. Which works well, however it can be a little frustrating if you’re constantly wanting to adjust Launchpad’s contents.

Luckily for us Lion users  Andreas Ganske over at chaosspace.de has come up with a solution!

Launchpad-Control is a simple straightforward tool that enables you to hide/unhide applications at the click of a button!

LaunchPad-Control Features:
