MacUpdate Reviews

about MacUpdate · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

The desktop client has effectively degenerated into crap and, at least on my copy of Mac Sierra, is difficult to get rid of - despite everything the finder would complain the program was running even though I had quit it - even using Activity Manager didn't help. I finally had to reboot into safe mode to get ride of the program. The website is not a useful as it once was either.

In the programmer's effort to make money MacUpdate has effectively been run into the ground and seems to be headed to the center of the Earth.

Avoid this like the plague for the time being.

Website is pretty decent. Their desktop client used to be great, showed all apps with available updates and would handle updates for you, up to 5 per month for free users. Now you have to pay to get any useful functionality at all out of the desktop app. Disappointing :(

I never actively browse this site for software, but whenever it shows up in my Google searches, I know that it's good. In this regard, MacUpdate is a really helpful website for finding obscure Mac software.
