Mac Informer shows updates for all of your installed applications. It works both for apps provided from App Store and via other sources. Mac Informer automatically does everything needed for an update: checks apps, gets links, and displays what was found within one easy-to-use interface.

Before installing the app, you can read reviews of any app, learn its pros and cons. Detailed reviews by the experienced community help you choose the right application for you providing details like unique features, advantages, and problems that may appear.

Find new apps with a powerful search engine and see them organized by rating, reviews, overall scores, and other filters.

Mac Informer checks your installed applications, analyses them, and offers new ones which offer similar but improved functions. This version is perfectly optimized for macOS High Sierra as well.

  • Question: Activity Monitor shows me that Mac Informer (version 0.6.5 beta) is routinely the app that uses the most CPU (sometimes up to 50%), even when I'm not actively using it. I can see no good reason for this. It suggests to me that either the app is buggy, or it's up to no good. Could someone please shed some light on this?
    Answer:

    You should forward this inquiry to the developers because in case of a bug to fix it to avoid these situations. I have the Mac Informer client installed on my OSX 10.12 as well and it's running normally without errors. I've checked the Activity Monitor as well and didn't find it to consume processing power, only when I search or download or it's doing its thing.
