Software Updates for all Mac OS apps

How do you keep track of the latest versions for all your installed applications? Apple’s built-in Software Update helps keep software like iTunes and Mac OS X updated, but what about the rest? A lot of applications on your Mac don’t include their own update checker and even if they do, they don’t work from a central place. We believe updating an application should not be done at the moment you want to use it. That’s why AppFresh 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, Adobe Updater, and more.

We want you to spend your time using your applications, not keeping them up to date!



Apple Updates

AppFresh integrates native update checking for Apple software and system updates, so you don’t need to run Apple’s Software Update separately.

Sparkle Updates

By fully supporting RSS based Sparkle updates a great percentage of self updating applications can be updated using AppFresh.

Microsoft AutoUpdate

We check for Microsoft AutoUpdate 1 and 2, so you won’t need the update checkers shipped with Microsoft Office 2004 and 2008.

Download and Install

AppFresh enables you to download any number of updates and automatically install them if you want. It also helps locating downloads and sends Growl notifications when the jobs is done.

Widgets, PrefPanes, Plugins

Update applications as well as widgets, preference panes and plugins. Supported plugins include InputManagers, Mail, Addressbook and iPhoto plugins as well as some kernel extensions.
