Version: 1.0.5 || Release Date: 2014-01-01 || License: Shareware ($14.99) Developer: metaquark.de | App Owner: metaquark

AppFresh helps you to keep all applications, widgets, preference panes and application plugins installed on your Mac up to date. All from one place, easy to use and fully integrated into Mac OS X. It provides a central place to control the software updates available to your Mac, integrating most popular and most common update checking technologies such as Apple Software Update, Sparkle, Microsoft AutoUpdate and osx.iusethis.com. We want you to spend your time using your applications, not keeping them up to date!

AppFresh not only gets update information from iusethis.com. If you have an user profile at iusethis.com you can manage it from within AppFresh and control which applicationsit contains, even automatically. Using your iusethis profile also enables you to install applications you don't have on your computer. This comes in handy when you need to reinstall your computer and want your basic set of applications installed. Using AppFresh and an up to date iusethis profile makes this an easy task.

THE killer app for the Mac. Has revolutionized how I approach downloading updates and new programs. It's still rather buggy and the updates are sometime hit and miss, but if they can iron out these issues it's a real winner.

Yes it leaks memory badly but it does work well. I am using 10.4.11 and it found loads of updates. If not it found web links for me to manually search through. It did 36 updates in a matter of half an hour without a problem. It would be nice if when it came to requiring an admin log in that it identified what program was being updated.

The app works great for me and I am also running 10.5.1. It has bumped up to being one of my favourite apps currently being used.

lol its to iusethis as iScrobbler is to last.fm

I agree with most others here... it isn't very useful as-is, but if it can deliver on all it promises, it will be a pretty amazing app.

this app just crashed my macbook pro.. couldn´t do anything for about 10 minutes.. an then the app crashes... but if..someday... this´ll work this would be the killerapp..

Since its still just a preview build, lets not be too hard on this app. I cant wait to see it stablize as its really a fantastic piece of software, even with its current problems.

It's working great on 10.5.1 for me.

Other than this application being unusable, it's great....

It's designed so well... and the options and feature list are fantastic... but I just absolutely cannot use it.

As others have mentioned, this thing just completely takes over. My poor PowerBook G4 doesn't stand a chance, it just gets slaughtered.

I would love to use this application... I really would... I have a heck of a time keeping things up to date, and this looks like it'd do it beautifully and leave me feeling happy... Instead, I'm left unsatisfied, with a fan spinning so fast it sounds like it's eating my laptop, instead of cooling it off...

This application is designed beautifully. And extremely useful. However at this point its probably the most poorly programmed app I've ever seen on OSX. It will literally take down my entire machine. If I open it up on OSX, i see my CPU go to 160% and eventually it crashes. But then pretty much everything is gone to hell (finder slows to a crawl) and I eventually have to reboot.

Whoever wrote this app is a fantastic designer, but a terrible programmer. I would love to see this app get polished up for version 1.0 as its one of my favorite shareware utilities.

I'm using 0.5.5 on Leopard 10.5.1
