SUMo stands for Software Update Monitor. Thanks to SUMo you'll be able to keep your PC up-to-date by using the most recent version of your favorite software ! Unlike build-in auto update features, SUMo tells you if updates are available before you need to use your software.


  • Automatic detection of installed software
  • Detects required updates / patches for your software
  • Filter / authorize Beta versions (user setting)
  • Ignore list : only tracks software YOU want to track
  • More compatibility and less false positive than others Update Monitors (according to users feedback ;-)
  • Internationalization support.

Haven't in a long time, but they have some other useful software that I've used. I use Filehippo's update program, and/or, myself, but can't say much about this.

SUMo has an enormous database and can notify you of updates for even the most obscure software. It's not the most convenient software, it won't download and install updates for you, and a lot of the time, it may not even provide a link to the authors homepage. But if you have tons of obscure software, like I do, SUMo is your best bet to find updates for those programs.
