Tidy up launchpad in Mountain Lion
Authored by: stevebr on Mar 26, '13 11:57:28AM

A while ago, I went with the opposite approach:

1. Empty the database completely as discussed here: http://www.macworld.com/article/1164600/clean_out_launchpad_completely.html
2. A spotlight search of the Applications folder for kind is Application with the condition "kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier:com.apple OR kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt:1"
3. Add results to Launchpad by dragging the results on to the Launchpad icon in the Dock

Your method is much handier for ongoing maintenance, so thank you for that.
