"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.

"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...
