Like for Widget Update, graphics were designed by Mike Pogran.
In order to make App Update find the applications you want to monitor for updates, you have to set the directory (or directories) where you keep them through the "Path Settings" dialog on App Update's back. It is recommended to organize your share- and freeware applications in seperate folders rather than dropping them all directly into the applications folder.
If you have used Widget Update before, you should feel right at home!
For additional information, please refer to the online help that can be opened at any time with the keyboard shortcut Shift+H.
