HI there,
Is there software, other than VersionTracker Pro (which costs $50 a year!), that will check for software updates for the fifty or sixty odd third-party software apps I use? Something like Apple's 'Software Update', but for third-party software.
Thanks for any advice,
Malcolm

Not really, but a lot of apps now check for themselves when you run them. All of Omnigroup's offerings, and pretty much all of my other apps now do this.

My other brain is hung like a horse too.

Macupdate have a similar piece of software to Versiontracker, for slightly less.

For substantially less, there's Renew, which is written/maintained by a student developer.
