GBIC >> gbWare

Shareware is a great way for programmers to get their programs into the hands of potential users. Simply hand out a full featured program and wait for the money to roll in! Well, of course, it's not that simple - particularly when there are a ton of freeware programs available.

I break the world of shareware down into 2 categories.

gbWare is my own shareware releases - which are shown below. A freeware version is available for all of my shareware.

Other Shareware would be the enormous number of shareware programs that are available for trial use on the web. I've tried out over a thousand such programs and of the approximately 100 programs that I use regularly, about 20 are from this group. The other 80 applications I use come from progamming tools (10), PC Magazine utilities (10), and other freeware (60).

You can see my freeware and PC Magazine recommendations at my Freeware Site.

Here's my list of shareware applications:


gbCodeLib
source code librarian

gbWebCam
send webcam images to server

gbGallery
create image gallery online

In the case of gbCodeLib there is no difference at all between the free and registered versions. I simply limit the freeware license to non-commercial users.

In the case of gbWebCam and gbGallery, the registered versions offer additional features which might appeal to users with more demanding needs. But the free version are simpler, but fully capable applications on their own. I use them both myself for my daily needs.
