FavApp – FileHippo Update Checker

I have certain tools that I use on a daily basis. Such as FileZilla, Notepad++, Pidgin, Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java, etc. etc. The developers behind these tools release updates. Sometimes these updates are a critical bug fix or a crucial enhancement. Instead of going to each application’s website and downloading the app one by one this nifty utility entitled “Update Checker” will do this for you.

Step 1: Download the Update Checker Application. You can download the setup file here. The current version is 1.038 as of June 2011.

Step 2: Install the application.

Step 3: Run the application.The application will now scan your computer for all of the programs it knows there is an update available for it. Once completed, it will bring you to a website generated page. One this page it will list what programs need to be updated and give you a *direct* download link to them.

Alternative Usuage:

You can download this .exe file that will just run without any installation required! aka “the portable” version.
