"MAKES MY LIFE EASIER"

August 03, 2013  |  By chestersmom

 |  Version: Download App 1.1

Pros

This is the easiest way of keeping my programs updated without having to do any checking on my own.

Cons

Sometimes when a program has downloaded and been updated the Download app doesn't update itself and still shows the program as out of date but it corrects itself after awhile.

Summary

Very useful program I wouldn't want to be without.

Download App allows you to download and install updates or not. It's also very clear, concise and very easy to use!

Cons

The name should have been maybe "The Update App" or possibly "Update App"? idk, it's a suggestion lol

Summary

All in all, i think it will be the BEST program around!

"A complete waste of time"

July 19, 2013  |  By merglerr

 |  Version: Download App 1.1

Pros

None that can be found

Cons

Have tried multiple times to download and install on Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit) to no avail. Download completes and install says it completed. However, each time it starts it aborts and produces a minidump. Analysis shows that the software is attempting to execute a forbidden operation. Thankfully, I was able to uninstall the software and manually clean up the registry by editing it.
NOT ready to be used IMHO.

"Best way to keep your apps up to date."

July 17, 2013  |  By armorsal

 |  Version: Download App 1.1

Pros

It lets you know that you have apps that need to be updated. You no longer have to find out for your self clicking one after another.

Cons

Some times you update an app and it still says that you have an update available. Wish it was monitoring more apps that are on my system.

Summary

I like it.
