    "Works for Me"

    April 25, 2013  |   By 1alexh


    What Microsoft/Windows Update does for Microsoft products, this does for many others.

    While I think it might be done a bit better, it certainly does help a lot, by keeping the amount of time chasing down updates to a minimum.


    Really, I'm not sure there are any. Except that I find the actual interface a bit of a kludge; at times, it is difficult to understand what point has been reached, in an update progress.


    It's much better than all the time needed to find out if your apps are up to date. And certainly much better than firing up a utility, or app, then seeing a "you can update this now" or "this app is ready to be updated" and given a now, or later, option.

    Certainly, when a person wants to use something, they do not want to stop and update that something.

    The Tech Tracker helps avoid that untimely interruption.
