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  • Keep All Your Mac Apps Up-to-date - MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available.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

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.

(1) Subscribed to MacUpdate Desktop for multiple years, with auto-renew. (2) Expiry date on CC had expired before auto-renew date. (3) Tried to change expiry date on CC in MacUpate, a couple of times, but changes didn't seem to take in the profile. (3) So renewed manually before the auto-renew date. (4) This resulted in a new purchase? (5) Auto-renewal needs fixing.

Contrary to the reviews claiming all sorts of problems, I've been using MacUpdateDesktop for years and haven't had any problems with it. It saves me an enormous amount of time and I heartily recommend it.

I paid for it on Oct. 6, but my purchase was not posted on the website, so the desktop app will not login. This needs to happen automatically.

Constant crashing, full on CPU kills, failed logins over a day or two long, and of course, just total crashing with Big Sur betas - which, yeah betas, but this thing has had major bugs and service failures long before the beta. Great on those comparatively rare good days. But. Otoh, please update and fix it?
