Almost instantly displaying a list of all the apps installed on your Mac, and shows you which (if any) currently have updates available for them. But wait! It doesn’t stop there, simply by clicking on the out of app gives you the option to download and install the update without even leaving the application! This is ideal if you have a large collection of apps which are regularly updated. There’s even an option to update all out of date applications at the click of a button!

Not only does desktop cover your apps, but it’s also capable of checking for and downloading updates for widgets, screen savers and preference pane apps.
Once you have downloaded and installed your updates the view switches to enable you to quickly confirm all updates have been installed successfully.
The application also supports watchlists (see picture to the left) which enables you to group together your applications, so that you can perform updates on only one category of application at a time. Handy if you are short on time, but want to update all of your regular use apps at once!
