Scan your Apps -
Maintain the Overview

Nothing could be easier than finding out which of your apps are out-of-date with MacUpdater. Just launch it and let it scan your apps. You'll see a list of all your apps, and apps with updates are listed in red. There are filter-options to display just outdated apps or ignore apps from being updated. The MacUpdater database has information about the latest versions of more than 100.000 apps (see FAQ).


No Registration Needed -
Total Privacy

In contrast to competing services, you don't need to register to be able to use MacUpdater. Just launch it, scan & update your apps. Even more important, everything in MacUpdater is designed with your privacy in mind. We don't track you and we don't sell your data - because we don't even have it. In fact, we have an industry-leading Privacy Policy that should keep you feeling all warm & snug.


Stay Up-to-Date -
Stay Secure

Updating apps could not be simpler - just click the "Update" button next to any outdated app and MacUpdater will update the app to the current version automatically. MacUpdater can silently run in the back-ground, check your apps for updates every day and let you know about new updates with notifications.


One-time Purchase –
No Subscriptions

MacUpdater 3.x is a one-time purchase ($¿¿), without any shady memberships, forced sub-scriptions or adhesion contracts. And if you just want to scan your apps without updating, it's even FREE! Note: MacUpdater 3 does require server-support and our daily maintenance to keep working: expect support until 2026-01-01.
