Keeping up with updates

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the task of keeping all applications on my computer up to date. While a few applications makes it really easy to stay current with the latest version (I'm talking about you, Adium), others require me to visit their websites to find out if there are newer versions available. That's way too much work!

I have just tried out a Dashboard widget called App Update that really simplifies staying up to date. It looks at your installed applications and compares with information from Apple, MacUpdate and VersionTracker and shows you a list of applications that have newer versions. Sweet!

Now, go get up to date! Working through that list also makes a good opportunity to uninstall all that software you installed to try out but ended up never using.
