call it what it is. it is "register it or it is super limited.". $20 for six months... = $40 per year. [[??]]

so this IN MY OPINION is app-crap. THIS IS WAY TOO expensive, even considering how convenient it is to have an app to fetch updates for every app installed. IT does keep you from having to launch each app individually to update one at a time -- but if you are a relatively long-time MAC user -- you may remember how great it was to have a wealth of "freeware" that was REALLY REALLY free.
