We can all use free stuff. How about a free vacation? Well, have not found that as yet. But for now let’s talk about Freeware, software available to use without purchase. I have previously listed a few I use on a regular basis. They never give me a problem, especially if I have to reinstall. YEAH. More about that later.
Today I have a three websites to share with you that offer Freeware, Shareware, and paid software options. The favorite are trial software with a purchase offer later. Some are only 14 days, others 30 days. No matter it gives you and I the opportunity to try the software out before purchasing. This is especially helpful if you experience problems, getting in touch with tech support for any software is mega important. There are some Freeware that do not offer tech support, you are sort of on your own. What I mean is some do offer a forum where you will find support from other users.
New sites I recently discovered and still research are as follows:
This is an archive of software you can get for free. The list includes games, photo software, productivity software, video and audio converters as well as player. There is a list of Blackberry applications that could take up this whole page, go see for yourself. The list is extensive as is the software available for download.
Here is another website filled with the latest and older software available to you both free and purchase. However, there are trial periods available offering you a chance to play before you pay. The alpha list begins with audio and video, business, communications, developer tools, plus many categories. Go check it out for yourself, I am still exploring.
This one is my old favorite.
Are you searching for a place to host your newly developed, open source software? SourceForge.net is the place to be noticed. Plus you can download almost any software program equivalent to the pay for software. You will find software to help you develop more software, patches and add ons to Windows operating system, hardware drivers, and so much more.
If you have a website you would like to share that offers free software I will be happy to share it with my readers. Please contact me and send me the information. Thank you.
