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.

Verdict:

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.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
