MacUpdater can automatically track the latest updates of all applications installed on your Mac. Launch MacUpdater to see at a glance which of your apps are out-of-date. And with a simple click you can update any outdated app. Don't waste any more time manually searching for updates, downloading, installing and cleaning up. Let the app take care of it all for you!

Scan your Apps - Maintain the Overview
Nothing could be more easy than finding out which of your apps are out-of-date with this product. Just launch it and let it scan your apps. You'll see a list of all your apps, and apps with updates are listed in red. There are convenient filter-options to display just those apps that are outdated. You can also ignore apps or updates you are not interested in.

No Registration Needed - Total Privacy
In contrast to competing services, you don't need to register to use MacUpdater. Just launch it, scan & update. Even more important, everything in the tool is designed with your privacy in mind. "We don't track you and we don't sell your data - because we don't even have it. In fact we have an industry-leading Privacy Policy that should keep you all warm & snug."

Stay Up-to-Date - Stay Secure
Updating apps could not be simpler - just click the "Update" button next to any outdated app and the app will update the app to the current version automatically. The tool can silently run in the back-ground, check your apps for updates every day and let you know about new updates with with notifications.

One-time Purchase – No Subscriptions
The app is an one-time-purchase – without any shady memberships, subscription crap or adhesion contracts. There is no need to sell your soul or to rob the piggy-bank to use the app. Its a simple, one-time purchase costing 9.99$/€. And if you just want to scan your apps without updating them, its even free!

MacUpdater Usage:

1.) Download MacUpdater from FileHorse and once it has finished downloading start it from Launchpad or your Applications folder.

2.) Upon launching the program, it will scan your Application folder. It will display all your apps in its window. Apps that have available updates are displayed in red and can be updated with a click on the 'Update' button next to them.

3.) The software is designed to be running all the time and to periodically check your apps for available updates so that it can inform you when those become available. Therefore the tool displays an icon in the menu-bar instead of the Dock by default, to save previous Dock-space. Similarly, the tool is launched by default when you start up your macOS. Both of these settings can be changed from the 'Settings'-tab of Mac Updater's window if you'd rather scan-on-demand. Other configurable preferences include additonal scan-folders, exclude lists, the scan-interval and notficiations settings.

Note: You can scan for updates for free, and update 10 apps for free. However, to update more than 10 apps, you need to pay 9.99$/€ to unlock the full version.
