Centralize your most frequently used applications
Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP / Windows 8
Allmyapps is a handy tool that helps you organize and clean up your desk top to make your computer look a little cleaner. If you're like most computer users, you probably have a handful of apps downloaded onto your computer that you don't use that often. You worry that if you delete those apps, you'll suddenly need to use one again. Allmyapps won't free up space on your hard drive or even increase the speed of your computer. Instead, it will help you organize the apps cluttering up your desktop.
Allmyapps gives you many ways to create an account. You can use your email address to start an account, but you can also register with your Twitter, Gmail or Facebook account. As long as you're logged into one of those accounts or have your password and user name nearby, you can create your account in seconds. After creating that account, go back to the home page and log into the system. Allmyapps will do a quick search of your computer, identify the apps you have installed and let you know if any of those apps need updating. You can then let the program automatically download and install those updates, skip updating or decide which apps you want to update to the newest version.
Do you have a lot of friends who always seem to know about the hottest apps and have those apps downloaded on their phones and tablets? With Allmyapps, you can get a jump on your friends. This program lets you search for the newest and hottest apps, and you can even search while your current apps update. It lets you search for apps that let you write reviews for local restaurants and attractions, fun games for you or your kids and even programs that let you download videos and music to your device.
Though Allmyapps works on all devices running Windows, it works better on your computer than on your smartphone or tablet. Most tablets today let you keep track of your apps through a dedicated feature, and those tablets will notify you immediately when your apps need updating. Many of the top smartphones also alert you about updates and let you create folders to store and organize your apps. Though this app is useful, it won't replace the features that come with your phone or tablet.
One thing that does set Allmyapps apart is that it stores your information on the cloud. You can access the apps you store with any other Windows device after logging into your account. That feature will make this app useful for those who shift back and forth between different devices, but Mac users and those with newer devices will often find that the program doesn't offer anything new.
