Top 10 Places to Discover Good Software
Permalink   


Services like the Mac App Store may be convenient for discovering software, but they can come with quite a few downsides too. Here are ten other great places to find the program you need.

10. AlternativeTo.net and Other Software Search Engines

One of the most popular ways to search out software is heading to a web site like the very popular AlternativeTo.net, where you can punch in the name of a program and get a list of all other similar programs for any platform. AlternativeTo is the most popular, though other sites like previously mentioned OSalt.com—which specifically finds open source alternatives to commercial software—are great options too.

9. App Recommendation Engines

If you're looking for apps on your mobile phone, recommendation engines like previously mentioned StumbleUpon for Android or Chomp on the iPhone. Instead of just offering suggestions of similar software, both recommend apps based on what you (and others with similar taste) already like and use. It's a good way to get app suggestions tailored to your specific style.
