    "Useless junk."

    May 19, 2011  |   By fazzari

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    Can't think of any.

    Cons

    Doesn't do anything more than provide you with the number of things that need updating - you still have to go to the (awful) website to figure out what actually is out of date. And there isn't an uninstaller for when you want to get rid of it.

    Summary

    If you want something more like VersionTracker Pro used to be, check out MacUpdate and avoid this program.

    "It finds software nicely but to get an update is a pain"

    May 15, 2011  |   By swenron

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    Nice detection of software

    Cons

    Update process doesn't work well.

    Summary

    I have the plus version but it is a pain to use as it hasn't updated any of the software I have.

    "Didn't work"

    May 2, 2011  |   By azloafer

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    There are no pros.

    Cons

    Didn't work properly and when it did work (almost) it caused problems. I had to do a restore after getting rid of it.

    Summary

    Poor app, one to stay away from.

    "Where is the Free?"

    April 29, 2011  |   By WheatGardener

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    None, None, None

    Cons

    I was to get it free as this email states, but I have received neither free.
    Get CNET TechTracker Plus for FREE
    when you start a one-month free trial with Netflix.

    Summary

    Netflix charged my account right away. What gives with this?

    "Gets Worse on each update"

    April 24, 2011  |   By man290663

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    good Idea - fails to work

    Cons

    doesnt work, installs copies of updates (99 of them) for apps you dont even have (imovie 9 for example), doesnt put updates in same place, doesnt recognised when files updated

    Summary

    DO NOT install, versionTracker was great - this is useless. support non existent. IVE deleted it now..

    sticking to buying programs via AppStore and letting apple update them PROPERLY

    "It sucks. Bring back Version Tracker!"

    April 21, 2011  |   By Fredcritter

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    As far as I can tell, there are no "pros".

    Cons

    Intrusive and irritating. Can't tell which items have updates without opening a browser. I haven't been able to figure out how to tell it to hide/skip updates.

    Summary

    I would give this product =zero= stars if I could.
    I've reduced the autochecking cycle to monthly to cut down on the annoyance factor and am trying to figure out a different method of ensuring that my software is current.

    "Doesn't do what it's supposed to!"

    April 11, 2011  |   By bemcgeeb

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    Clean interface, unobtrusive.

    Cons

    Several applications were up to date, but TechTracker doesn't recognize this. It doesn't direct me to the correct update.
    This app is also impossible to uninstall. CNET instructions for uninstalling don't work either.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time with this app.

    "Often says software needs updates when it does not."

    April 9, 2011  |   By Al_Q--2008

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    Found a lot of outdated software on my Mac and downloaded the updates more conveniently than going to all the web sites.

    Cons

    - Often installed programs in the wrong place or said update was needed when the advertised version was already installed.
    - Keeps asking you to review anything you have updated, long before you have a chance to try the new version.

    Summary

    Can be useful, but not nearly as clever as it should be.

    "Not up to my expectation coming from CNET!"

    April 7, 2011  |   By Simolious

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    Easily downloaded and ready to run!

    Cons

    After deciding TechTracker was not for me, I found that it was not possible to uninstall. The uninstall program was not found. Instructions from CNET were ineffective. Tech help proved to be no help at all.

    Summary

    I have had viruses easier to deal with than this program. Look elsewhere for a more user friendly app.
    I'm a MAC guy. Maybe it's better on a PC!

    "Good program but spammy"

    April 3, 2011  |   By Dayyaud

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.0.2

    Pros

    Comprehensively tracks programs that have updates available.

    Cons

    On my 3rd set of requests for upgrade reviews. Some programs I haven't even used eg Easus Partition. If I don't review in two requests, I'm probably not going to .

    Summary

    Ease up on the emails.
