Following on from a reply to another of my questions, I see that Macupdate.com is a source of Mac apps.

It seems impressive with its own installer running on the mac.

So, what is the catch?
Is it adverts, and/or do they take a cut of all app sales?
or is there a malware risk?

They have been known to supply free extras with downloads (they were hacked a while ago). It might never happen again course but they are an attractive target.

You are also increasing the number of software providers that you trust, does that balance the benefit gained?
