They all are in the poll now, make sure to vote for them:
https://patchmypc.net/vote-for-new-apps
Except for (RedNotebook - Security KISS - System Explorer) because there are no DisplayVersion for them to be detected by Patch My PC, And "Memory Cleaner" has no silent switch.

Dude, do you only work on the software that has been voted for - or will you eventually include everything that has been requested?

Because it seems hardly anybody is actually voting - only 200 people so far!

Hopefully you will find the time to cover all the software - the more you include, the more popular PMP will become!


Also, why do some developers decide not to include DisplayVersion/SilentSwitch in their software?
Is there a good reason for it - or is it simply an omission... or just laziness lol?
Could you email them to request their next update adds these things?

Maybe they will listen - maybe they won't... but it's worth trying!

The poll is new just a few months old, we will spread it more properly soon.
We test what's been requested and add it to the poll if compatible or in the incompatible list if it's not.
I guess not including the DisplayVersion/SilentSwitch laziness and omission lol, will reach to the devs of these apps, I've tried it before and it worked for a couple of apps.
Thanks for the suggestions and the support :)

I'm sure most developers would love to be included with PMP - it means their software gets more exposure and downloads!
In fact, maybe you could work out a deal with some of the bigger companies to actually get paid for including it lol!

As well as being an "Updater" of apps - you could try to make PMP a sort of marketplace of apps... like a Google Play Store for Windows Freeware!
You should include a description of what each app does, and how well it is rated, and even how many times it has been downloaded to gauge its popularity etc.
Then people can use PMP to discover new apps that they haven't used before... which could potentially give you guys another stream of revenue as you're creating new users!


Anyway, I almost forgot lol - here's some more cool software for you (that is hopefully compatible!):

OpenDNS Home = https://www.opendns.com/home-internet-security/

PRTG Monitor = https://www.paessler.com/prtg

TinyWall = https://tinywall.pados.hu/

Windows Firewall Control = http://www.binisoft.org/wfc.php

We will look into these features, we are going to improve Patch My PC soon anyway.
These 4 apps are not compatible for different kind of reasons for now.

Excellent! Do you have a timescale for the next update - is it gonna be in a few weeks, or months?

Shame about those 4 - but how about this one = https://vivaldi.com/?lang=en

It's a cool new Browser - based on Opera but with more functionality, and is compatible with Chrome extensions!

We don't have a specific timescale for PMPC updates, but usually it's every couple of months.
Vivaldi was in the incompatible list for a long time because there was no silent switch for it! But thanks to you I just rechecked it  and I found one! so it can be added now :) Just moved it from the incompatible list to the poll and probably will be adding it in the next update anyway because it was requested a lot in the past!
Also I just move a couple of apps from the incompatible list to the poll in the past few days because the problems are gone and now they can be added :) hopefully the whole incompatible list is going to be compatible with time.

Dude, why isn't there a timescale - don't you have a road-map as part of the company business plan?


Good news about Vivaldi!


With the 3.4 update, PMP now has exactly 250 apps covered = Kickass!


Keep up the good work bro!

This is a freeware app so we are not in a hurry :)
But for me I'm doing as much as I can and as fast as I can.
Thank you!

True, but isn't the free version, a part of the overall business plan - almost all other freeware products do the same!


You develop a Free version so it becomes popular with the home users - then these home users like it so much... that they use the Paid version in their work or business!


Therefore, the better you make the Free version - the more revenue you gain for the Paid version...


Or in other words Omar - please do hurry lol!

A couple more bro! These are just portable apps so I'm guessing easier for you to add?


Ultrasurf = https://ultrasurf.us/


RBTray = http://rbtray.sourceforge.net/
