Launchpad-Control is a small tool which allows you to easily hide/unhide apps (and groups) from Launchpad in Mac OS X Lion. Please feel free to distribute and talk about this app on blogs, twitter or websites. I would really appreciate that.
It’s a system preference pane (update v1.1).
Displays a table with all apps that are in Launchpad in the correct order.
Checkboxes for every app allow you to remove an app by easily ticking a checkbox.
Reorder the items with drag’n'drop (update 1.5).
Sort items alphabetically (update 1.5) and even across pages (update 1.63).
Backup/Restore the database (update 1.5).
No duplicate entries (update v1.5).
Checks for updates (update v1.2) and updates itself automatically (update v1.63).
You are now able to make a full reset of your database in case anything went wrong.
You can now hide whole pages with just one click (update v1.3)!
It’s completely free!
