    Found this nifty application while browsing...

    "App Update is a free Dashboard Widget that can automatically check for updates to your installed software. It supports Apple's software directory, MacUpdate and Version Tracker. It will present you with a tidy link list of all the updates found, enabling you to read release-notes and download the the updates quickly and painlessly."

    This is one cool widget. It will help a lot of Mac users keep up-to-date with software releases.

    Maybe someone can help me. I remember reading about a standalone Mac app that's currently in beta. It has a similar function as the App Update widget except it runs on the desktop and it can download (and even install) the new versions for you. Problem is, I can't remember where I saw it and I can't even remember the name. If anyone knows, please post it here.
