AppFresh

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.

Apple updates take a very long time to complete, no way to turn it off.

Excellent app.

Does the application support keychain?
It is mentioned in the ChangeLog in Version 0.5.1 (Release Date: 2007-07-11), but I do not see any reference to AppFresh in keychain access. I use the latest version 0.8.5/854.

Glad to have it, but it's sure not perfect. I have 76 Unknown applications, and 25 with updates that aren't actually updates -- they're either downgrades or identical version numbers or alphas that are unstable.

One snafu so far; this thing downgraded my full 1.0 version of world of goo to the 1.2 demo. I'd think appfresh would check for something like that.

A really nice app to keep track of all pplication updates on your computer. Too bad that many apps just aren't recognized correctly.

sorry to bother you with that but impossible to download 0.8.5.9 (the least uptodate
at the moment) : error by auto-check feature and check update menu option.

I would love to download it !

I have had no problems with Snow Leopard using AppFresh... Beautiful app ... beware of Cnet's knockoff 'techtracker' bleh!

What a brilliant app. Wish I'd found it years ago!

Works fine here on Snow Leopard.

It's not perfect, which is what you'd expect from a developer preview. So far I have about a 50% success rate on updates (LOADS of them just sit there on "Starting download", a few others fail for inexplicable reasons) but it's still saved me a heck of a lot of time thanks to what it does work with.

If there's any reason to use a Mac, this is one of them!

I was able to get it working on snow leopard by clearing out the ~/Library/Application Support/AppFresh and reinitializing everything. Works good now!
