Simple but effective

Simple UI.. Easy setup..

Excellent Addition to a Version Controlled Site
By , for WP 4.3

I have my sites under version control with deployment tools used and therefore don't really want WordPress auto-updating things. Therefore I needed something to email me when plugins/themes and core needed updates so I could run the update and deploy.

This plugin does an awesome job - thanks for sharing.

SImple but Excellent

I am using this plugin to help manage my updating process.
It gives the ability to notify for core, plugins and themes and specify the email address that the emails are sent from and to.

I can't recommend it enough.

Great little plugin
By , for WP 4.1

I have used this plugin on more than 50 client sites. It has worked without fail for me. It is simple, light-weight, and reliable. I'd recommend it without reservation. Make sure that your web server PHP config is properly setup and and 5.4 or higher, which you should be the case anyway, and you are good to go.

Great plugin

I use it on several of my websites.

A great security plugin for multiple sites
By , for WP 4.0

I consider this a security plugin since plugins and themes ought to be kept up to date in case they contain security fixes.

I have multiple sites and am not comfortable with the services out there that let you update everything on all sites from one place. That is convenient but there's something about central access to all my sites from one point that concerns me. WordPress is my livelihood so I prefer to play it safe and manually update plugins when WP Updates Notifier says its time.

The real cron-powered notification option is solid.
