    I found a program once but it worked once before requiring me to purchase the program. Is there a free program that will search my mac for all the apps on it, and see if there's an updated version downloadable?

    I'm going to check that one out too, I've been thinking about how a tool like that would be useful as well. Most programs I have notify me once an update is available, but something like this would definitely still come in handy.

    You, sir, are one of several reasons why this is the most helpful Mac forums on the web. Thanks!

    Heya! Does anyone have any idea as to how well this app works in Leopard? I used to use it in Tiger, but was hesitant to be installing anything and everything in Leopard. Since I figured it wasn't critical for me to maintain the apps, I didn't install this.

    Would hope any Leopard+AppFresh users could share their experiences.

    So far it works great! Updated WMV player all automatically just using AppFresh. Cool app!

    I don't know about those other services that AppFresh uses, but even though iusethis is a pretty good review site, it is often very slow in updating apps.

    Well, if there's a better alternative to appfresh, please suggest it.

    I don't know one unfortunately. It's free, so you might as well try it out.
