    "Useful, even if not necessarily needed."

    November 12, 2013   |   By galsim

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    It track almost every program in your PC for updates.

    Cons

    It still show newer version, even if you choose to not install them.
    But you can close automatic messages and check manually the interested updates when you want and download only that.
    Personally I download EVERY program I have in PC even if already updated for keep my cloud disk fully updated. :P

    Summary

    Dont understimate a software like this. Have last version of a program sometime can cause compatibility problems if you have older OS, but a newer version have increased options and protection you cant miss.

    Keeps track of updates to programs, allows manual or auto downloads. Easy to use and the interface is simple and easy to understand and navigate.

    Cons

    Tends to list programs that have already been updated

    Summary

    All in all I really like it and recommend it.

    "This still works better t han the Download App"

    November 01, 2013   |   By rasaya

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    This application tracks most current downloads still to this day, even better than the new Download App, which I have tried as well.

    It's the only app that I know of that keeps track of ALL the various applications on my systems, and knows which need updates. Others I've tried and used only do essential apps, like Adobe Flash Player, not say, Advanced System Care.

    Cons

    That I have to use the Download App instead of this one; this one's only con that I can think of is that it opens the list of your downloaded applications in another window. Even then it's not really a con.

    Summary

    Still better than the new Download App. I think I'll stick with this one until the other is better handled.

    "Set and Forget!"

    October 08, 2013   |   By jran1011

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    Seamless installation, never any interference with other operations. Has never suggested the wrong version or program installation. I don't even have to think about this program - easy to use, hard to abuse!

    Cons

    Careful selecting the "Open With" option - you'll know the first time you use this - just use the first suggestion...

    Summary

    Wish they were all this carefree...
