When the updater runs and downloads the installers, it leaves a dialog that sits on top of everything. This is annoying as I'd like to continue working while this is happening. Whilst I live in a location where there is relatively fast internet, I can imaging this would be frustrating for those where internet is slow / intermittent.

What did you expect instead

Updater should be a one click 'Install' button. It should not sit on top of my running apps. It should not require any further input once I've selected to install the update (unless there are problems that need addressing).

    Hey Joshua,

    this is standard sparkle behavior, used in thousands of applications. If the loading progress window bothers you, you can simply move it aside so it's almost completely offscreen.

    Then checkback whenever you want and run the update once it's finished downloading.

    You can still press cmd + H, that will then also hide mail app but might be a solution if you just want to keep working on an office document or in another app.

    All the best,
