Staying on top of software updates can be tricky, particularly if your favourite apps have no means of telling you a newer version is available. What feature updates, performance tweaks and bug fixes could you be missing out on?
This is where the Downloadcrew UpdateScanner comes into play, giving you a single, convenient location for software update checking – and we’ve just released version 2.0, packed with lots more useful features too.
As with version 1, Downloadcrew UpdateScanner 2.0 scans your Windows PC for installed software, then compares it with its extensive database. Any outdated software is flagged, and you’re invited to visit the appropriate Downloadcrew update page to download the latest version.
The software is designed to sit unobtrusively in your system tray going forward, so the moment an update is released for an installed app, it’ll alert you to it.
Version 2.0 also adds several new features to make it even more useful. A list of the newest and most popular downloads are displayed, and the app will also automatically alert you to the latest software giveaways, when we team up with our partners to offer you full, commercial software at no cost for a limited period only.
The app also displays a list of the latest Softwarecrew headlines, and provides you with convenient access to our software store, where you’ll find dozens of top-rated apps are available for bargain basement prices.
Downloadcrew UpdateScanner 2.0 is available as a beta for registered members running Windows XP, Vista or 7. If you haven’t already signed up, you’ll need a free Downloadcrew.com account to use it – so sign up here [http://www.downloadcrew.com/?act=user.login#register] if you don’t already have one.
