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  • Keep All Your Mac Apps Up-to-date - MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available.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

I got your mail for extend my subscription, but I didn’t want to . Because I bought M1 Mac mini (Big Sur), MacUpdate Desktop won’t work. So I did nothing to extend subscription. But auto-renewal occurred. “Renew or Extend your membership to enable auto-renew” was already "no mark" in my profile page. I made inquiries twice. Still no answer for 2 weeks. I don't want to imagine that your company almost go out of business.

Here's an email I got from these folks On Nov 18, 2020, at 11:58 AM, Vitalii MacUpdate <support@macupdate.com> wrote: "While I don’t have an ETA on when the app will be available to download, I expect it to be in the next 2-3 months". Perhaps months meant years? Don't waste your time and money with this any longer people. Get a copy of MacUpdater for a faction of the price of half a year of MacUpdate and move on. It's sad to have to say this after many years of paying for this product but it's dead. And there is a better product for less $$.

Just got a reminder email to renew my membership. Hard pass, since I have not been able to use it since the last membership renewal. Very disappointed! Not pay for something that no longer works with not hope of ever working again.

WTF is happening? I have been waiting over 6 month for support of Big Sur and yet nothing happens. I'm starting to look for an alternative to Macupdate ... what does you - that is also a frustrated customer - recommend?

Macupdate under the new owner (I miss Chad) must be very honest and transparent to supporting customers like all of us that are nagging here. Tell us whether Macupdate is developing new version of Macupdate Desktop and MUMenu that are BiggSur and M1 compatible? If yes, when will we get them. Don’t just keep silent. This is nothing good for 6our supporters. Get back to us with definite answer

So, its bee months since Big Sur was rolled out. What is the status of MacUpdate? Please give us a straight answer and timeline. I paid my recent renewal in January 'cause it's important to support developers but the lack of information is frustrating. Tx

Like I wrote about the menu bar applet: DO not support this developer. They have had an eon to update MacUpdate Desktop and the menu bar app, but have chosen not to. Those of us who had paid subscriptions got shafted when everything MUD stopped working.

Good morning, macOS Big Sur was released almost 6 months ago and you have not yet released a version of Macupdate Desktop compatible Big Sur! That's why I haven't renewed my subscription to Macupdate Desktop yet, although I've been doing it every year for at least 10 years. I'm thinking more and more seriously about switching to one of your competitors. I am really disappointed! Can you finally give news about a Big Sur version? Sincerely, Hervé
