Great but need something more

For the price its a good start. For future release (i’m willing to pay for it) I would like to see 1) the ability to stagger application launches so that they don’t all launch at the same time 2) a way to reorder the apps without having to delete them and re-add them 3) An option for this utility to launch itself on startup 4) I don’t want to see this app when it is running nor when it is done

Great Idea Would Be Willing to Pay For a Little More

I'd love to be able to have each app launch be staggered instead of the new bactch launching all at the same time. I could see this working one of two ways, a staggered approach, one app every few seconds for each of the apps, or specify how many seconds to wait for each app in the list.

Works perfectly

I've been using this app for a little while, and I haven't gotten any of the "failed to launch" errors that others are getting. It just works for me, and it's exactly what I needed.
