AppFresh...CNET TechTracker....save your cash and stay updated.

haha! iusethis user tallies = appfresh: 44726; macupdate desktop: 207.

@bbolman : what do you think makes this better than AppFresh? i seem to remember thinking something similar, but i've deleted this app and don't remember now what i might have thought was better. whatever it was, it wasn't enough to win me over from AppFresh.

Bet Mac App Store will throw a big spanner into the works of this app/service in the future.

There's no denying this is probably better than AppFresh, but when you compare pricepoints, it's not THAT much better that I could imagine justifying the purchase. Maybe I'm wrong?

Is it better than appfresh? I have no clue.

Hard to imagine why I'd want to try something other than AppFresh.

It is included in the $20/year membership now - the price on this site is incorrect.

I thought this was $20 per year (same as MacUpdate subscription)?

40.00? Seriously?
