Launch is a menu for favorite applications and documents. Installing Launch creates a folder in the home directory called "Aliases". Any number of documents and shortcuts can be placed in there and arranged in a hierarchy of subfolders. At login, Launch scans this directory, and creates a menu in the status area from which these files can be opened instantly. There are no other options or features in the menu; just exactly what is found in "Aliases" at login and no more.
BackPlay a program that plays music files from a folder in the background. At login, it scans a directory called "BackPlay" under the user's Music directory, and begins playing any music files it finds there in random order. BackPlay is independent from iTunes. It can be paused from an icon in the status area.
