I still do not know what the big deal is. Like I have already said in another post there is no reason why the individual software cannot notify you of updates and you can either choose to ignore them or apply the update. It seams pretty simple to me and most programs do it this way. For example I use advance system care and when an update is available I am notified and I can choose to apply it or ignore it.
I do not want or need another program such as impulse to tell me about updates. It should be built into the software with the choice to turn off auto updates and notifications if that is what you want to do. Create another update manager if you like but I think its unnecessary.
That's the way it works in all of my other software, turn it on, turn it off, check manually, etc. etc. Point being, the software has the ability within itself to check for and install updates based on the users preference. I too have never liked having an additional piece of software just to download and install updates. I have my software set to notify me of updates and then I choose whether to install them or not.
I've been a long time paying customer of Object Desktop and it has just boggled my mind why this hasn't happened and now we are in a pickle having to fire up the software, check the version, then fire up my browser and check the web version just to see if I want to download updates.
Come on Stardock, you guys build great software, let's step it up
