Why use a login item instead of a launchd daemon?

Recommended Posts

To open at startup, Alfred is setup as a login item. However, Apple has been recommending for years that instead of being set as login items, apps should set up a launchd daemon. I don’t recall exactly where they mention it, but I’ll find it for you if you want.

So why pick the login item route?
