      pros, cons and recent comments
      javacrossknit It's inexpensive. It works simply. It's well-maintained. No bloatware, nothing hidden: just software that does what it does exceptionally well.

      Homebrew Cask vs MacUpdate Desktop
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Homebrew Cask is great for finding UNIX apps to run on the Mac, but it does not monitor locally installed Mac apps for updates. This is a major feature of MacUpdate Desktop.
