Software Giveaways

By October 8, 2008

Follow me on:

Giveaway of the Day offers 24 hours to download a completely free, licensed commericial package every day. Not always something useful but a good site to visit regularly for the occasional really cool software. At the time I'm writing this (7pm Central Standard on Wednesday evening) there is 6 hours let to get Foxonic. It's an image to PDF converter.

Recent past free downloads have included other PDF tools and image tools. Keep an eye out for other nifty design and publishing related utilities. (Learn more about this free software site at About.com Freebies)

Yes, it is a very useful site — although always do a virus/spyware scan — there’s been a few scares.
Also, most weekends, they give away a free game. Check for Whiterabbit’s reviews, he’s very detailed about them.

It is a good site, yes – but – a lot of the programs don’t always work as expected, some DO have viruses, but there a lot of similar programs out there which can do the same job, also free. Also, if your read the comments left by other users more often than not they leave a high percentage of negative comments. I have downloaded many programs but after a while I soon delete them from my computer – something usually goes wrong it!
