SUMo is a handy software solution designed to keep the applications you're using up to date, providing a very simple way to find out whether there's any update available for a certain program or not.
Although it may sound a bit complicated, SUMo automatically scans your computer and analyzes the installed applications to determine if there's something to be updated or not.
Additionally, you can perform the whole job manually by simply dragging and dropping an executable file over the main window, thus letting SUMo conduct a scan and check for updates.
The interface is quite straightforward and intuitive, showing all the installed apps and their versions, alongside with potential updates that may exist online.
Plus, there are dedicated buttons at the bottom of the main window to check, scan, add, remove or ignore programs, so it's easy to manage the installed applications.
However, our tests revealed some issues. While SUMo works with most popular programs, it fails to detect updates for some other applications and this seems to happen pretty often. Plus, “false positives” emerge every once in a while and although you're informed that a new update is available, this is not the case.
Of course, you need an Internet connection to use SUMo and although some users complain that it's terribly slow, speed was not a problem during our tests.
All in all, SUMo may prove to be quite a handy software solution that could become a must-have for many experienced users out there.
