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:

  • It’s a system preference pane (update #1)
  • Displays a table with all apps that are in Launchpad
  • Checkboxes for every app allow you to easily specify apps you want to hide or show
  • Backups/Restores your original database file
  • It’s completely free!

You can download Launchpad-Control from chaosspace.de or by clicking here

System Requirements:
Launchpad-Control requires OS X Lion (obviously)
