MacUpdate Desktop6.4.1

19 December 2018

Search and install Mac apps w/ 1-click and keep them updated.

Overview

Note: MacUpdate Desktop is not ready for macOS Big Sur yet. We apologize for all inconveniences. Our team is working on this. Will keep You in touch

MacUpdate Desktop brings seamless 1-click app installs and version updates to your Mac. With a free MacUpdate account and MacUpdate Desktop 6, Mac users can now install almost any Mac app on macupdate.com with a single click, including thousands of titles not available in the Mac App Store. And now, users can search for, discover, and install new apps right from the MacUpdate Desktop app!

  • 1-Click App Installs - Installing apps using a Web browser is slow and complicated. You have to hunt down .zip archives, mount disk images, manually drag app icons to the /Applications folder, run custom installers, and delete the files you no longer need. With MacUpdate Desktop, all you have to do is click the "Install" link on a MacUpdate app listing and MacUpdate Desktop takes care of everything.
  • Keep All Your Mac Apps Up-to-date - MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available. Updating your apps is as simple as a single click. Free users can update up to 5 apps during the trail period (MacUpdate Desktop subscribers will want to upgrade to our Desktop membership for unlimited app updates, plus other benefits).
  • Discover and Install New Apps - MacUpdate Desktop features an expanded search feature that offers the ability to search both app titles as well as natural language keywords to help you discover new apps from within MacUpdate Desktop. Try searching "antivirus" or "email" to view relevant apps -- after a 1-click app install, you've got a new app installed and ready to launch, without ever having to leave MacUpdate Desktop.
  • Localization provided for the following languages: English, French, German, Korean, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish

Increasingly ridiculous performance issues on the desktop app. I was caught in an endless update refresh, which is typical: always quit and restart the app or the updates won't be current. And now I can't log in to the app, although the password is accepted online. $20 every 6 months for this kind of unreliable and frustrating performace is simply not acceptable. After many years, time to cancel before the next renewal.

This software is STILL not compatible with Mac OS Big Sur, which was announced in June and formally released in November. There should have been adequate time for the developers to make this software compatible, yet there is no word on when this will happen. I question this developer's commitment to this product. I notice that there is no delay in collecting the subscription fees, however.

I have been a subscriber for over 5 years, and I wish I could find a way to get my money back. 

 Between the nebulous amount that you owe every year, (Is it billed every 6 months, or yearly, who knows?) to the fact that it pulls random version numbers out of thin air that you can never seem to get rid of without having to ignore the app outright there are problems everywhere. Now with the push to Big Sur and M1 causing crashes on launch rendering MacUpdate moot in the process, I haven’t even been able to use this program for the last 3 months and they want me to pay for a re-up and a promise of compatibility “sometime in the future” No way. Also, let's not forget the random score that it gives you with no context as to what it means or how it's calculated; FACT: if a program gives you a non-standard score it's marketing B.S. pure and simple. There are a lot of ideas here that simply go nowhere, recommended apps that aren’t based on what I use, the persistent menu icon that works just like the regular app, just smaller, having to go to preferences to enable the apps you really want to monitor. I liked this app when Internet speeds were slow and I needed the time to update everything, but now most apps do this kind of maintenance on their own better, and if they don’t there are better apps that this job out there.

 SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

It's ironic that an app that handles updates hasn't been updated for Big Sur.

Big Sur was released on Nov 12, 2020. It has been 2 months and there still is no functioning version of MUD for the latest MacOS. EVERY other app I use, dozens and dozens, has been updated to work on Big Sur. Not only that, some have been updated to work on Apple's new M1 chip based Macs. The fact that MUD still doesn't work on Big Sur is appalling and offense to paid customers. You should be issuing refunds to EVERY paid customer.
