FileHippo Update Client is a simple program that downloads new versions of programs that are installed in the computer. This is useful for applications that do not come with their own automatic updater tool. The program scans the system for updates and alerts the user whenever new versions are available. Its icon sits on the system tray and users can point the mouse cursor over its icon to check if there are new updates that are ready to be downloaded. When the icon is clicked, users will be brought to a page where the downloads are available. The application supports checking updates for different types of applications including web browsers, music players, instant messaging programs, and many others.
On the upload window, users can see the name of the program with the available update, the number of the latest version, and the version that is installed in the system. Users can also view the size of the new version that is ready for downloading.
Other features of the FileHippo Update Client are the following:
• Simple and easy to use even for novice computer users
• No need for configuring the application
• Supports a wide variety of programs
• Does not clog up system resources
