Managing Software Licenses on OS X

August 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I have a lot of software that I’ve bought over the years. Yes really, bought. It’s becoming a pain to know where all that licence information is. I could really do with some software that could manage all that for me. Anyone got any suggestions?

I’ll update the post as suggestions roll in.

Licensed:

Free, which is good, but don’t seem to be able to attach files into the program. Useless when your license requires a JPG for authentication. The GUI is the weakest of all those reviewed.

Appshelf:

Fishy. Appshelf looks good, is priced right at a low cost of 7 bucks, and you can attach any sort of files into the program. Nice.

Licence Keeper:

Looks really nice, can attach files, but the cost is way too high for me: $19.99. GUI is the most polished of the apps reviewed, but only just, Appshelf is right up with it.

Lizenzen:

Free, the GUI looks OK, but again you cannot attach files in the application.

Winner:
Appshelf wins hands down. Equals any other app in terms of functionality, it looks good and it is the right price. The best home software license manager on OS X, no arguments.

NB: Not affiliated in any way with Appshelf/Kedisoft or any of the vendors in this review. I have now purchased Appshelf though :)
