When you install a dozen apps a week on the PC, tracking updates and new versions for all of them can get really hard.

Luckily AppGet makes things easier for you. This simple tool analyzes your system in order to create a list with all the applications currently installed on the PC. Then it searches the Internet for updates for these apps, and in case it finds a newer version, the program name is displayed in red and AppGet includes a link to download the update.

The whole process is automated and saves a lot of work. Plus, you can also configure the program to "read" the download history in Firefox so that it knows exactly what you have downloaded and updates are therefore easier to find.

That said, you should bear in mind that AppGet is not perfect. I don’t like the fact that you can't access the program’s database to see how many apps the program supports and therefore are suitable to be updated. Also, it would be great to be able to add new entries to the program's database, one for each new app you install. Finally, I don't understand the point of having a user account in the developer’s website – especially since that functionality is currently unavailable.

Despite these minor flaws I still think AppGet is a very useful tool and a great help when it comes to keeping your software up to date.
