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  • Keep All Your Mac Apps Up-to-date - MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available.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

Your company has gone from trusted to a farce, and perhaps a scam. Big Sur is now on release 11.5.1 and you have not been able to provide a working application since its release. You happily want to collect our membership fees and rely on them to do something, maybe buy your Lambo and laugh at all of us, but not provide an application to support tracking of applications on a Mac running Big Sur. Is the name MacUpdate? I can launch all my apps and then check for updates, so getting an email saying I have updated applications is not so useful. Yet all this time any communication to your clients other than "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" You have not delivered on even that promise of staying in touch and could perhaps touch up the grammar a bit on the update you do provide.

Not ready for Big Sur yet? What does this tell us? It probably means the new owners have turned development of the app over to incompetent coders who know absolutely nothing about macOS. it also means the updated app, whenever it is released, will likely be a kludged Windows port because that’s all the developers are capable of.

Does anybody have an alternative to this suck-ware? I'm done with this thing. I don't wanna keep paying these people money when the software literally doesn't work.

It's nice to see that the website got a refresh. Now, how about getting back to work on the actual application — "MacUpdate"?

Zero support. Used to be great. But the app hasn't been updated in 3 years so what's the point of paying for premium.

This was once a great goto application and web site for keeping MacOS software up to date. Not any more since the release for Big Sur. Product stability and updates were slipping long before Big Sur was released but that was the point all functionality of the Application stopped. Now the website is not being properly maintained. Access to individual settings and profile are now throwing CloudFront process errors. This means it is not even possible cancel an autorenewal membership.

I have been paying a long time for MacUpdate, although it ceased functioning with BigSur. Now Monteray is soon coming, and now update is in sight. A lot of people have the same problem as I have, as can be seen below, but nobody is answering them. I think this is the moment to stop paying for something which does not function.
