GBIC >> Software Reviews

Software Reviews are a great way to speed up the process of selecting an application. At this site, I find and evaluate applications, then provide a comparison of the applications in a way designed to help you pick the one best for you!

Please feel free to recommend an application category for review.

I include both freeware and commercial software in my reviews. I'm a strong advocate of freeware (about half the software I use is freeware).

In addition to the individual category reviews here, I also keep separate summary recommendations for freeware and shareware applications in all categories.

Most Recent Reviews
Having just started (June 2007) this part of my site in June, I've been busy deciding what categories of software to review and which applications to include in the reviews.

In each category I've identified a recommendation but will be revisiting the recommendations as I work through the review process in each category.

Here are my most recent reviews:

Software Review Sites
These sites provide software reviews, similar to the approach I've taken at this site - comparisons of competing applications.

My Software Recommendations
I've provide both freeware and shareware suggestions. I've also broken out PC Mag's Utilities, which are shareware to the extent that you have to pay an annual $20 fee to download any or all of the utilities they offer.

Software Lists
These sites have gone to the effort to suggest their recommendations for software (no comparisons here of competing programs).

Software Directory Sites
These are sites which provide descriptions and downloads of freeware or shareware, listed in Google rank order as of mid-July, 2007.
