    Yeah, AppFresh is currently freeware. Another option I also find handy is a widget called App Update.

    I've found that AppFresh is more accurate.

    I've tried that, it's basically the EXACT same program as AppFresh just under a different name.

    I've been using AppFresh since Fall of last year and love it. I run it once a day, it scans over 75 of my applications and checks for updates in less than 10 seconds. It's actually three times faster than Apple's Software Update.

    There is also Bodega, it lets you buy, download apps and also checks for updates.
