Keeping your Mac apps up to date is easy. If you’re using Snow Leopard or later, you’ve got the App Store. If you’ve bought software through it, it tells you when they’ve been updated and helps you get the updates installed. If you’re not using the MAC App Store, there are other products that do similar things. On the PC side of the world we’ve got SUMo. It’s an app update utility for Windows.
SUMo stands for Software Update Monitor. It keeps your PC’s apps up-to-date and safe by monitoring the most recent version of your favorite software and then checking for new versions on a periodic basis. Unlike an app’s built-in auto update features, SUMo tells you if updates are available before you run or need to use your software.
SUMo is a GREAT app. I’ve been using similar tools on the Mac side and was very please when I found SUMo for my PC’s. I have five of them at the house, and with at least 6 PC users, keeping everything up to date on all of the machines isn’t easy. SUMo makes it much easier. The fact that the app is free, makes this a no brainer and a must have for any and all that PC’s that you have in your house, too.
The app comes with support for more than 20 language translations, and is certain to work on your computer and version of Windows. If you don’t have SUMo working for you, then you’re clearly missing out.
