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  • Keep All Your Mac Apps Up-to-date - MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available.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

I was paying the PayPro bill through PayPal and it was easy to cancel the recurring payment there. I might have put off cancelling for another payment or two if there was communication from the new developers letting us know that a new version (which works on Monterey) is forthcoming. But unfortunately, even if their personnel are still alive, they may not have access to the internet.

I had been wondering why I haven't been able use this app. I would run the app and I would have to click "Login Now." Upon doing so, my username/password wouldn't work. However, I can log into the website with the same credentials with no issues. I ended up reaching out to Tech Support (who responded within an hour) and told me that there's a server issue causing the problem. This was two weeks ago. You would figure that either it'd be fixed by now or at least have a notice posted on their website proving updates. Nothing. Thanks to someone in this thread for outlining how to cancel the subscription. I have done just that. Time to move onto something that actually works for a change.

Just a word about MacUpdate. The company is owned by a Ukrainian software development company and was acquired before the Russian invasion. You can imagine what is going on right now in the country. So while it is frustrating to see no further development of the app at this time you might understand why. I am not associated with MacUpdate in any way. Just a former subscriber who found this out.

A simple reply with some kind of status on possible update or that the product will be shuttered should be made.

How can I pay you for all the years you have not updated your application. 2018 to 2022 is a long time to wait.

Just to confirm what others are saying: Version 6.4.1 of MacUpdate Desktop does not work and crashes instantly. I just caught the fact that my autorenew was coming up and figured out I needed to go to https://cc.payproglobal.com/Customer/Subscriptions (after a password reset) to cancel it.

I just looked at MacUpdate Desktop because the I can now only see about 20 new updates. Then I noticed that it does not work with Big Sur - which I have on my Mac. Do you intend to update it?

Anyone who is stilling paying for this is a fool. Regardless of what they say, this will NEVER be updated and never work on a newer OS again. It hasn't been updated since Dec 2018, over three years ago. It stopped working when Big Sur was released on Nov 12, 2020. Monterey was released on Oct 25, 2021. An ENTIRE MacOS cycle has passed at not a single update. Stop posting comments/questions asking "when is the update coming?" IT'S NOT. This application is DEAD. Move on -> https://www.corecode.io/macupdater/

Have used MacUodate Desktop since its inception, and currently have version 6.4.1 installed. For the past two (2) years your app;lication crashes on every launch. I have continued my subscription through two subscription periods on the promise of an update "coming Soon." Since there is no update, or workaround, I have no choice but to cancel my subscription BEFORE it is scheduled to renew.

On Monday, I made an honest comment about an application, based on an independent security software testing site. That review is apparently still under review by the guardians of MacUpdate. One of two things: either MacUpdate is no longer trustworthy for Mac users and dirty censorship is now flooding this site (a fact I would be willing to announce), or it's just a matter of hours due to busy days at MacUpdate. Let's wait a couple of more hours to decide.

MacUpdater, an entirely different app from MacUpdate Desktop, is terrific!!! https://www.corecode.io/macupdater/ It works on Big Sur and Monterey to automatically update apps as did MacUpdate Desktop (too) long ago. It should be listed on the MacUpdate website. But it isn't. Shame.

After using MacUpdate for many years, it is now a piece of crap! Eventhough I keep asking for a fix, I get no answer. except a message that it will automatically renew my subscription this month which I will make sure it will not happen. STAY AWAY!!!
