SUMo is a pretty handy software program designed to keep the applications you’re using up to date, by providing a very simple way to find out whether there’s any update available for a certain program or not.
Automatically scan the PC for installed apps
Although it may sound a bit complicated, SUMo automatically scans your computer and analyzes the installed applications to determine up-to-date tools, along with minor and major updates.
There is also the option to perform the whole job manually by simply dragging and dropping an executable file over the main window, or by indicating a custom drive or directory, thus letting SUMo conduct a scan and check for updates.
Clean and intuitive interface
The interface is quite straightforward and intuitive, showing all the installed apps and their versions, together with available update versions for outdated utilities.
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 everything.
Evaluation and conclusion
However, our tests revealed some issues. While SUMo worked with most popular programs, it failed to detect updates for others. 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. CPU and RAM consumption was reasonable too.
To sum things up, SUMo may prove to be quite a practical software solution that could become a must-have for many experienced users out there looking to quickly update programs. Just keep an eye out for glitches.
