Show Recent Items Per App with a Two-Fingered Double Tap in OS X
You can quickly see any apps recent items in Mac OS X Lion by using a two-fingered double-tap on that applications icon in the Dock.
This brings up a menu contained within Mission Control showing all of your recent items, and if you have currently opened items they will be displayed above the list. The trick also works on apps that are not currently open, allowing you to see recent items without launching that app.
