Soft4Boost Update Checker

Soft4Boost Update Checker 8.6

Free
Scan, detect, and update software applications in your computer

New versions and updates of all your installed programs are continuously being released without you noticing it. Soft4Boost Update Checker is a free utility that can help you spot any new version available for any of the software installed on your PC in seconds. It will list only those software tools that have been updated, offering you direct access to their website with just one click.

The simplicity of this tool is probably its main asset and also its main drawback. This one-window tool checks the official sites for all your installed programs searching for new updates and new releases and lists them all for you in a snap. Regrettably, that is all there is to it – it provides you with a list of sites that you need to visit personally, one by one, in order to grab the new version of the software. This, in itself, is a useful feature, but it is very far from being as efficient as the functionality that similar tools offer – the option to download and even install those updates for you.

Given the extreme simplicity of this utility, it is no wonder that the only options provided by Soft4Boost Update Checker are an ignore list and eleven different skins to customize the program’s appearance. It is true that it is a free tool that simply delivers what it promises, but it is equally true that there is a handful of other similar free utilities that not only check for updates but grab them and install them for you, while offering you other similar tools you might be interested in, offers and deals to try new programs, and a number of other features that render this Soft4Boost’s utility pretty useless.
