Paid software becoming free software? Is this really possible ?
With Giveaway of The Day project, it does.
How does Giveaway of The Day work ?
Essentially, everyday, they partner with a software company to offer their software for free. Sometimes that free software would have been $49, $59, or more.
They can do this because the companies are getting publicity and exposure out of this, while they are getting traffic and a warm fuzzy feeling that they are doing good in the world 🙂
This is all well and good, but does free software expire?
No, this is not a trial, or any kind of shareware. IF you get to the software in time, before the day passes, you can download it, activate it and own it for life. It’s essentially full software for free.
Ok, I’m interested, tell me more.
Well, what you do, is go to www.giveawayoftheday.com, and preferably bookmark the website, so you can check it every day. Alternatively, you can subscribe to their e-mail notification, follow them on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.
When you go to their website, you will see their free software of the day along with a nice description. You then click on “Proceed to download page”
Here, you will see the product in question along with System requirements, the publisher, ratings and comments.
If you want to get an idea of how the software is before you install it, check out the comments sections. Odds are somebody already installed it and gave it a short review.
I personally am always behind free software, be it open source, or given away by the publisher/developer, as I believe many of you are. Projects like this are everywhere on the internet and if you would like to come back to my website and read more about these projects and others then don’t foget to Subscribe to my blog.
