AaronTraas Posted November 27, 2013 Share Posted November 27, 2013 One of my Macs is only used about once every week. Every time I use it, it seems that Alfred needs to update. Now, I'm completely grateful that Alfred is a well-maintained app, and I rely on it for my workflow. It absolutely makes my life better in measurable ways. The powerpack, also, is well worth purchasing. However, being nagged constantly to update stinks. Why not do this: - without prompting the user, download updates in the background. - whenever alfred is restarted, if there is a downloaded update available, install it silently. - when a downloaded update is available, update the menu bar icon to have a red exclamation point on it, and add "restart to upgrade" - add "Update available. Click here to restart and upgrade." or similar on the search bar. This is the direction applications like Chrome and Firefox have take, and it works very well. Of course, major version upgrades, such as those that would require a new PowerPack license, would not work this way. Tyler Eich 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
