Traverse City, Michigan – MacUpdate today introduced MacUpdate Desktop 6, a new Mac app that leverages the most comprehensive Mac app directory on the Web to bring 1-click Mac app installs and updates to the masses. With a free MacUpdate account and MacUpdate Desktop 6, Mac users can now install almost any Mac app with a single click, including thousands of titles not available in the Mac App Store.
“MacUpdate has been the top destination for Mac users looking for apps for more than 10 years. With MacUpdate Desktop 6, we’re changing the way Mac users install apps,” said J Mueller, MacUpdate’s Founder & CEO. “With 1-click app installs, new Mac users no longer have to hassle with downloads, disk images, and installers; and power users will appreciate the convenience and time savings.”
MacUpdate Desktop 6 also features an unmatched scanning engine that notifies you of updates to your installed apps as soon as they’re released. Updates can also be installed with a single-click, either from the MacUpdate Desktop app itself or the new MacUpdate Desktop menu bar item.
“With MacUpdate Desktop, I can be sure that I’m running the latest version of everything I need,” said Peter Cohen, who has covered all things Apple for more than 20 years and is presently Managing Editor of iMore.com. “It’s one of the first apps I install when I set up a new Mac.”
MacUpdate Desktop 6 is available now as a free download. Users can take advantage of unlimited 1-click installs of apps at MacUpdate.com, and 1-click updates for up to 5 apps on the Mac per month. For $20/year, an unlimited number of apps can be updated in addition to other premium membership benefits.
