Alfred 5 should add itself and remove Alfred 4 from Login Items

Recommended Posts

I installed Alfred 5 and presumed that the application would just replace the previous version, but what I discovered is that Alfred 4 and Alfred 5 will co-exist in your Applications directory! So when I restarted my computer, Alfred 4 launched because it was in my Login Items. This lead several Workflows to be appear as incompatible — which surprised me (because of my expectation about how software updates typically work). 


I understand there may be reasons to keep Alfred 4 around, but just as apps can detect when they're not in the Applications directory, perhaps there should be a way to detect and then replace Alfred 4 with Alfred 5 in Login Items?
