Automatic Update Checking
PG Commander automatically contacts a web server to check for software updates. If a software update is available, a message is displayed in the favorites window.
Since PG Commander is sandboxed, it can not update itself automatically. You have to manually update it. Updating PG Commander works the same as installing it: download the app and drag it to your “Applications” folder.
When checking for updates, PG Commander sends some statistical information to the web server. It sends the following information:
- PG Commander Version Number
- Mac OS X Version Number
- Computer Model
- Language Preference
- Random Number
This information allows me to estimate how many people are using my app. It tells me what systems to focus on for testing, and what languages I should consider for localisation in the future.
PG Commander does not transmit any personal information when checking for updates.
If you do not want PG Commander to automatically check for updates, simply disable update checking in the preferences.
Mac App Store
If you bought PG Commander on the Mac App Store, the above doesn't apply. Use the ‘App Store’ application to install updates.
