Mac software VersionsX




Submitting a new Mac application to a popular software tracking website (, MacUpdate, Softpedia...) sounds easy.  It maybe is if you assume that nothing goes wrong on their side.  The fact is that you can end up getting redirected to an empty page because of their website's server error.  Sometimes, your web browser can quit itself all of a sudden, losing all the progress you've made.  Sometimes, their website is inaccessible when you want to submit a new software update.  On the other hand, one common mistake that you can make on your side is to give them a URL as a file location that does not exist.  Anyhow, you'd better keep an eye to their website's software list for the next several hours because, whatever the reason is, there is no guarantee that they will list your software submission.  Well, the best you can do is to make sure that the file path is correct.  And...  Wait, when did you submit your software update?

VersionsX is a software title that is designed to help developers document version history for any number of software titles.  Every time you create a new software version profile, VersionsX can access the given URL constantly to see if the software file you designate is accessible.  Don't worry about tagging each line with <li> when you write software changes because VersionsX can do it when you generate a software update summary.




  • Check and see if a given URL is accessible in real time (every several seconds).
  • Automatically, count the numbers of letters and words for software short/long descriptions.
  • Six date formats to choose from for international differences.
  • Click on the clock-in button to record the time when you actually submitted a software update for a particular software version.
