MajorGeeks News and Software Updater can show you all of the latest news and downloads on MajorGeeks.Com.
Hey Geeks - Ever find yourself looking for the latest in software but too lazy to type in the URL to MajorGeeks.com? Well, we've solved that for you with our Software Updates and News Program. In a nutshell, we took our popular Software Updater and wrapped in in a daily news update system for your desktop. Now all the files, News, Off base and Way Off Base topics are just two clicks way.
The News Update function simply sits in your systray and can notify you of any new articles on MajorGeeks.com without you having to check each day for what interests you. The tabbed interface will show three days worth of news, plus it will show how many files we have added recently and whether they were shareware or freeware items.
The Software Updater scans your system for outdated software that you have on your system. Typically it is important to keep up with the latest release that an author has to offer, but unless you are uber-diligent, often things can get missed. Generally, these updates include new features, bug updates or security fixes. Many programs have automatic updating built in, but many do not and not keeping up with the current version can leave your system vulnerable or at minimum not having the newest, coolest features.
We at MajorGeeks worked closely with our friends at eSupport to develop a small app to that would quickly scan your system, offer intuitive solutions and no system bloat. One simple click and you're downloading the latest version. The only way it could be easier is if we showed up and did it for you --- but until teleporters are real, will just go with this.
Also, the software will scan your system for any out of date drivers and will offer you the ability to get eSupports Driver Agent at a nifty MajorGeeks user discount. eSupport is a well-known driver updater, but not free like so much of the competition.
This latest version adds a scheduling option for update scans. This uses native Windows Scheduler to avoid system bloat and make your life easier.
If all of your software and drivers are up to date, MajorGeeks News and Software Updater will show you featured and recommended apps.
