  1. Guy-

    I’ve looked at AppFresh a number of times and debated about downloading it. After listening to you mention it on the podcast I decide to give it a try. What a mistake! The biggest problem I found with AppFresh is that it updates not only apps that you would update manually, but apps that are a paid upgrade, or not compatible with 10.5 if they’re Snow Leopard only. I had to delete a few updated apps and go to my backup to reinstall those apps-some I had to go through the whole process of registering, typing in my license…what a pain! Not the end of the world since I have numerous backups, but still a hassle.

    Maybe I did something wrong, but I immediately deleted AppFresh. Have you had any problems with updates?

  2. Guy says:

    Well the problem is that there’s no way for the makers of AppFresh to know what kind of updates are being put out. You can use the preference panel to tell AppFresh whether to install or just download the updates.

  3. Guy says:

    OOOPS! Just looked again. You can also have in the main window what your current version is vs what the latest update nuber is. Usually when an app goes next big number up as compared to just a point update is when they charge thought that to is not always the case. Both RapidWeaver and Freeway like to make new paid versions without the big number jump
