Mac OS X Only: While browsing around the web, i came upon AppFresh, I've been using it for 2 months now. If you have tons of applications on your mac, im sure you understand how difficult it can be to download updates individually for each app. AppFresh is the answer to this problem, it seamlessly keeps tracks whether or not any application needs an update, and easily downloads them.
"AppFresh helps you to keep all applications (third-party and Apple),
widgets, preference panes and application plugins on your Mac up to
date, from one place. It works by checking the excellent iusethis.com for new versions and lets you download and install available updates easily."
There's some obvious advantages to this. No more will you have to toggle through every app to see whether or not it needs and update, and AppFresh makes the installation process very simple, basically you click update and appfresh does the rest.
I also happen to like that AppFresh is completely free, unlike it rivals, Version Tracker Pro ($50/year) and MacUpdate Desktop ($40/year).
Keep Your Mac Updated with AppFresh
