R-Updater is a simple, small and lightweight solution to keep your installed software up-to-date. It will scan your system for installed applications and check if any newer versions have been released.

R-Updater has been created with focus on simplicity and can do its job perfectly fine while requiring as little user intervention as possible. It can operate as intended right out of the box, as soon as it is installed, as the default settings are suitable for any system and no additional tweaking or setting up is needed. R-Updater can unobtrusively monitor the installed software for new updates and automatically notify you when any new versions are detected.

Besides its simplicity, I also like the fact that this tool allows you to configure the notification settings and to schedule the updates (daily, weekly, monthly or at every system startup). Its interface is also simple and neat.

Summing up, I'd like to mention that it represents a viable solution to keep track of software updates especially for those interested in utter simplicity. For those wanting more features and wider control possibilities, other applications are more suitable.
