Isn't there a program that searches and updates all your software (including third-party)?

Thanks in advance!

Apple has their version which check and alerts you of updates. I have not seen an update application for third party software, someone may have.

I also use this. It's a great little way to keep all your apps up to date.

Not a fan of that app nor iusethis.com. It's very incomplete, misses alot of updates, and didin't recognize programs. AppUpdate got everything, even checks multiple sources.

IMHO, AppFresh isn't anywhere near ready for prime time.
