Keep your software up to date with AppFresh

If you have been using your Mac for any length of time you probably have a reasonable number of applications installed. OS X can automatically check for the availability of updates for the operating system as well as various Apple applications, and there are a number of programs that will check for updates when they are launched.

However, there are plenty of software titles which do not feature any sort of automatic update facility and this could mean that you are missing out on important feature and security updates.

Obviously, there is nothing to stop you from visiting the web sites of software manufacturers to check for new program versions and updates, but unless you work with a very limited number of applications this is likely to be an incredibly lengthy process.

AppFresh can do all of the hard work for you. The tool integrates with OS X's own update checker and it will check for updates for all of the program you have installed; these can then be installed at your leisure. The program can also update widgets, plugins and preference panes making it a truly essential tool.


Although still undergoing development, there's little to fault about AppFresh which helps to ensure that you always have the most secure and stable version of programs installed.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
