    Who puts out an updater app for all the programs on your mac. Is there one that does it the best?

    AppFresh isn't bad, although it does occasionally throw up some spurious results for apps that have already have the latest update. In SL, uncheck the "Check for available Apple updates" otherwise it takes forever.

    It's actually impossible for it to get all apps, since not all apps have an update feed it can use.

    The two that I evaluated were AppFresh and MacUpdate. To me...MacUpdate did a better job of automatically updated my software when an update was issued.
