Tech Tips – Have you ever wanted a new App for your Mac but was not sure if such an App existed? Or perhaps you do not know the exact name of an App. MacUpdate may be the answer to that problem. MacUpdate, as the name implies, is primarily a source for keeping track of the latest updates for your Mac Apps. Per their website:
MacUpdate simplifies finding, buying and installing apps for your Mac.
Search over 40,000 Mac apps. Buy apps for 50% off at MacUpdate Promo.
Use MacUpdate Desktop to perform 1-click installs of apps you find on macupdate.com.
If you follow them on Twitter (@MacUpdatePromo), you will get a tweet each day for every App that has been updated in the last 24 hours. I follow them and I get 15-25 tweets from them each day.
The other way you can use MacUpdate is to search for Apps. Just enter what you want to search for in the search window at the top of the page and a list of Apps meeting your criteria will be listed.
In the example shown to the left, I searched for “ebook”. Notice that you see the rating of the App, the number of downloads, and the price. As you can see as well you have filters at the top of the page that you can use to narrow your search. Click on any entry in the list and you can install the App.

I agree. There are a lot more FOSS packages out there for Mac than most people realize.
