MacUpdate Desktop 5 offers smart scanning, one-click updates

updated 02:45 pm EDT, Fri October 30, 2009

App searches over 30,000 software titles

MacUpdate has released MacUpdate Desktop 5, an update to its software management utility. The latest version features smart scanning, enabling automatic scanning and matching for more than 30,000 software titles. The user interface has been redesigned to be cleaner and easier to use, while users can download and install updates with a single click.

The utility provides update verification, allowing users to determine if installations were completed successfully. Older versions can be archived in case an updated title needs to be reverted. Users can also sync Watch Lists with macupdate.com for e-mail notifications.

MacUpdate Desktop 5 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and can be downloaded directly from the company. The app costs $20 per year, while a 10-day trial is also available.
