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MacUpdate Desktop scans your Mac for outdated apps and immediately notifies you when a new version is available.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 per month (power users will want to upgrade to our Desktop membership for unlimited app updates, plus other benefits).
