Recently discovered this awesome little freeware program and can't live without it now!

Please could you add it when you do your next update


Thank you!

Like I keep saying - as well as Downloading/Updating software... y'all should also be developing PMPU to help Discover new software!

Which is what I did today lol - in the Hardware Tools section, I tried out HWinFo for the first time... and am blown away!
Dangit, I wish I'd found this awesome app years ago!

I now don't need these FIVE other apps and have Uninstalled them!   
- Core Temp
- CPU-Z
- CrystalDiskInfo
- HWMonitor
- SpeedFan
I may end up removing a couple more once I've figured out everything HWinFo can do haha!

So, how about this for an idea - could y'all choose the very best apps in every category... and somehow highlight them as Recommended?
(like an Editors Pick lol!)

Maybe even create a new section called "Recommended" which has all the best apps in one place?
Sure, some categories won't have one clear winner - so pick the best 2 or 3 etc...

Also, how about Rating each app according to how many people have installed it - and adding the option to arrange the order of apps in each section Alphabetically (as it is now) or by Popularity!

Or even add another section called "Popular" and put all the most downloaded apps there etc!

All this would save people wasting time getting inferior software - and help them discover the better options out there!

Yup, been busy with Paint again lol!  ;D



How about trying the following:

1) Tidy up the left column
a - remove the version numbers and x86/x64
b - if the OS is 64-bit then don't show the 32-bit version of an app if the 64-bit exists
c - use only one word for the category titles
d - put MS Visual in the Runtimes category
e - add option in right-click menu to let an app be hidden - for Firefox ESR etc

2) Organise the right column
a - make a grid with Application/Developer/Bit/Version/Updated columns
b - add right-click option on title-bar to let some columns be hidden - whatever people prefer
c - add right-click option on apps to let them be hidden from list - mainly for MS Visual etc

3) Merge the Scheduler in to Options
- also rework Scheduler so it uses drop-down menus

4) Overall, tighten up the layout so it's more compact and svelte!

Glad you brought back the website in the latest update - with a cool icon too!


I'm sure that by the end of this year, you'll have the PMPU features/functionality pretty much perfected - and have over 400 apps covered!

So what will y'all do in 2019?

Continue to add more apps (even the not so popular ones!) = higher the number, the more impressive and popular PMPU will become!

Also, even though y'all don't want to lol...

Version 6.0 = Include fully featured System Info... like Speccy

Version 7.0 = Include fully featured Uninstaller... like Revo

Trust me guys - your user base will expand to every PC on Earth!... and you'll become the next multi-bajillion dollar acquisition by Microsoft !!  8)

Looking much better dudes - and the video is superb... y'all really are kicking ass now!
I hope you've upgraded your servers because there's gonna be a lot of people downloading PMP this year!

As usual (lol!) some ideas to improve things! ;)

1) Why not move the Reviews from the sidebar and put them across the top - much more in yo face!
2) Put the Donate button in the top-bar - again, more visible and tidier overall!
3) Move the Resources box further up, to replace the Review box - so it can be seen immediately without scrolling down!
4) Shout out load the number of apps covered - you guys are still just whispering lol!   

Kinda like this:



Keep up the good work bro's! 8)

So, I thought what the hell - let me drop an email to some of my fave developers whose software is not compatible with PMP...

Guess what - a couple of them replied... and said they would make it compatible with their next upgrade!

Kickass !!


Omar, keep an eye out for the next version of:

Everything = https://www.voidtools.com/

RedNotebook = https://rednotebook.sourceforge.io/

Hopefully more will follow soon...  ;)



Everybody who has requested an app should do the same - all it takes is a few minutes of your time!

Go to their website and find the contact email address - then write to them with something short and sweet:

Hello xxxxxx, thank you for creating such awesome software!

I use this nice patching program to keep all my apps updated to the latest version
= https://patchmypc.net/overview

Unfortunately, xxxxxx doesn't work with this, as there is no Display Version or Silent Switch installation...

It would be great if you could amend the code so it does work!

I'm sure many people would highly appreciate it!

Thanks again!

Some won't bother to reply, some will reply, but say they can't... but some will thank you for the suggestion and make the change in their next update!

Awesome!!

I like to keep my Start Menu organised, so move things around in to specific folder etc...

Whenever a program is updated - it creates the same Shortcuts again... which I have to keep deleting!

Would it be possible to have an option in PMP that stops new shortcuts being made?

Thanks!

Request New Features or Software (Free Home Updater) / Ninite...
« on: January 11, 2018, 12:40:20 PM »

Just wanted to ask...


Ninite is able to update some programs which PMP can't - could the same method be used by PMP to allow more software to be included? 




Also, it would be cool if you put the Voting page somewhere easier to find on your main website


https://patchmypc.net/vote-for-new-apps


Maybe on the top bar along with "Home - SCUP Catalogue - Free Updater - Tech Support - Company - Contact Us"?




Thanks!

Request New Features or Software (Free Home Updater) / Google Earth
« on: January 11, 2018, 12:27:27 PM »
Love your program dudes!


I've noticed the Google Earth version is not up-to-date...


Google had two versions - Free and Pro... but has since made Pro available for free as well


https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Google_Earth#/Google_Earth_Pro




Right now the updater is stuck on the 7.1 Free version - could you upgrade it to the 7.3 Pro?


https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/earth/desktop/




Thanks and keep up the good work guys!

General Questions (Free Home Updater) / Ninite
« on: November 02, 2017, 04:46:12 PM »
It would be great if everything on Ninite could be covered by PMP = https://ninite.com/

Also, I noticed that the Google Earth update hasn't been upgraded to Google Earth Pro 7.3
- I think the basic non-Pro version has been discontinued now?
