Giveaway – Utilities

February 15th, 2008 | by Naomi de Moraes

I was recently made aware of a site, Giveaway of the Day, that provides free copies of software that is not usually free. What’s the catch? Each giveaway lasts only one day, so you have to download the software on the day it is featured.

Appearing on the site provides publicity for the tools (usually PC utilities). Many of the utilities are what would be considered impulse purchases, but sometimes utilities turn out to be invaluable. You will have to sign up for their RSS feed to make sure you don’t miss out. (Click here to read a short explanation of how RSS feeds work, if you do not already know.)

Looking at the last few giveaways, I am sorry I missed a good text-to-speech tool, TextAloud, offered on December 20, 2007. I have also heard good things about EverNote, offered on December 27th. A few days ago a “help file authoring” tool was offered. I don’t often work with help files, but some translators do and it might be helpful.

I would be interested to hear from readers who have downloaded and used the software provided on this site. Note that the site also offers a free game every day, which could save you money if you have children (or are still a child at heart).

    Today, Giveaway of the Day has a program that converts different formats of sound file into MP3. I have actually been looking for a program to do this for a while! So, keep an eye out on the free offer each day to see something interests you.
