    "Software Informer is great."

    July 24, 2014   |   By AlfredWans

    Version: Software Informer 1.1

    Pros

    It is possible to update the programs in time.

    Cons

    Information on some latest versions is outdated.

    Summary

    Software Informer is great. It has helped me to keep my system up-to-date for years. I can not only keep track of new updates for my installed software, but also always find new programs in its rapidly growing software library on the web site, read top software news of the world and chat with my friends and relatives. Thank you guys for a great job!

    "Badly designed program."

    November 24, 2012   |   By ITechLtd

    Version: Software Informer 1.1

    Pros

    Non that I could think of:/

    Cons

    Resource hog. Requires constant access to harddrive, RAM, CPU, and network(IS provider allowing that is) in order to function, and uses invalid keyloggers to attempt to match software to available updates, from sites that are often unreliable. Main problem, adds exception to firewall and antivirus in order to function, then downloads viruses in place of/attatched to unreliable updates from unvarified sites thus causing considerable damage to the operating system and, at times, the BIOS which in some cases have made repair impossible.

    Summary

    Do not download this software in any hope that it will, at any point, work effectively. It should be immediatley removed from DownLoad.cnet.com.

    "Seems to be going the right way"

    September 02, 2011   |   By ChrisSorensson

    Version: Software Informer 1.1

    Pros

    Fixed the majority of false updates (most seem to be human-moderated now, with working links). Light footprint.

    Cons

    Lacks a bit of customisation.

    Summary

    Does seem to be offering correct updates now (finally). Quite useful even.

    "Great idea, but doesn't work well"

    July 16, 2011   |   By TonyBeGoode

    Version: Software Informer 1.1

    Pros

    It's free and if you like frustration, you'll like this.

    Cons

    Reliability of scans and subsequent update information is fairly terrible.

    Summary

    Sent me on several "wild goose chases" - very frustrating. In one instance it said I had an Intel driver in need of updating & when I went to Intel, they said that driver is incompatible with my machine. I then checked with Toshiba (my laptops brand) and their website did not offer that driver for my model either. Therefore: inaccurate scans & update info = a complete waste of time.

    July 06, 2011   |   By ahaefe

    Version: Software Informer 1.1

    Pros

    Diz-nos algumas coisas certas

    Cons

    Não encontra a maioria das drivers com a actualização certa e manda-nos para a procura da Google

    Summary

    Pode usar mas a ajuda não vai ser muita.

    Cons
