Well, this app worked well until just now. When I opened the app, it no longer listed my hidden folders. I had to use a terminal command to view all hidden items and then put it back in Hide Folders so I could click "show" (because it was still, somehow, hidden). I have no idea what happened but I won't be using this anymore.

This is a really handy app to keep your home folder clean. Some applications dump crap files at the root of your home directory; deleting the files can screw up the application or they'll be recreated next time you launch the application. Using Hide Folders you can leave them in place and hide them from finder -- keeping things tidy.
