MacUpdate Desktop6.4.1

19 December 2018

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

Overview

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  • Keep All Your Mac Apps Up-to-date - MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available.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

Sadly, I too have just switched to "Mac Updater," which works fine w latest macOS. MacUpdate Desktop has languished far too long. More importantly, the developer simply would not inform its loyal longtime (and paying) user base what's happening w the software: will an update appear or not for macOS Big Sur, and when? For me, MacUpdate Desktop was THE compelling reason to be a paid MacUpdate annual subscriber.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Renewed anticipating this once great app would be fixed, but I can't even remember the last time it didn't crash on launch.

It seems the developer has abandoned MacUpdate; MacOS Monterey is soon coming and MacUpdate still doesn't support Big Sur. Switched to MacUpdater.

Although it did no longer work, I kept renewing twice in order to show my support for what used to be a good, useful tool, hoping that the long-awaited update would finally come. But still no sign of it. Sadly, I have now decided to cancel my subscription, that will come for renewal next week. Hard to believe how a developer can disappoint and lose a solid and faithful customer base. Like the authors of other comments below, I switched to MacUpdater several months ago. It does the job.

So many posts on this thread with so many valid concerns and zero response (or close to none) from the developers of this app. At this point it's going on 10 months and counting since the release of macOS Big Sur and no updates on this topic. I cancelled my subscription for MacUpdate Desktop several months ago after receiving a notification that my renewal was coming up when this app has not worked on macOS Big Sur from the get go. I switched over to "Mac Updater" which has been working great and decided to purchase it as well. It is beyond ridiculous for a company to keep their subscription model up in this fashion and continue to request for renewal when the app does not support the latest version of macOS. Is there even plans on updating the application? If so, then when? Why can't the developers of this app provide some updates on what exactly is the delay here.

I have now abandoned MacUpdate because the app no longer works, as per all of the comments below. I have now moved over to MacUpdater where their app DOES work on BigSur and M1 !!!!! https://www.corecode.io/macupdater/

MacUpdate Desktop has not worked with Big Sir on my mac. I recall an email exchange I had with you guys when I first discovered that fact. My recollection is that my subscription was to be put on hold until you got it working with Big Sir. It is still not working and I got an email from "https://cc.payproglobal.com/Customer/Products" telling me my credit card info needs to be update so they can bill me $20 for another six month subscription. I DON'T THINK SO. Cancel my subscription and do not bother me again.

Ditto to all the other comments on the clearly abandoned MacUpdate desktop app. What was once a great app and very good customer support has gone way off the rails.
