What features?
By , for WP 3.9.1

Apparently this doesn't actually add any new features for updating. It is just a slightly different GUI to the same update functionality *unless* you pay for the pro version. What does that do? It claims to add backup capabilities, but it doesn't back up enough data to actually restore a site.

Useless.

So far so good
By , for WP 3.8.1

I'm using the auto selection, but also getting emailed so I can take a quick look and make sure nothing broke. I've been lucky with WP that no updates ever broke anything.

Not the best plugin for updates
By , for WP 3.5.2

Pros
I'm assuming the plugin works. Why I haven't actually tried it beyond installing? Read on.

Cons

  • Bad grammar. How hard is it to run a check?
  • 2/3 of the plugin only works when purchasing the Pro version. It's more of an advertisement than a useful plugin.
  • Sloppy design.
  • Adds its own menu.
  • Calls that menu 'BWS Plugins', advertising its creator instead of giving the user clarity.
  • Advertises their other plugins on the 'BWS' page.
  • Writing a 5 star review of their own product.

The plugin might work like a charm, but these are not the kind of people I want to associate with and especially not rely on.

Best WordPress plugin for updates
By Plugin Author, for WP 3.5

Best WordPress plugin to update multiple websites, such as WordPress blogs. If you do not have time to manage updates of all your websites and plugins then Updater is what you need!
