Subscribe to VersionTracker- A CNet Site for Mac, Windows, and Palm OS Users

I had a request for “more Mac stuff ” after my post recommending a free Mac OSX application called Caffeine from VersionTracker. My main focus for this blog is writing, and although technology can be a part of that, I will not be posting regularly about such things. I will post information if I find something I think is particularly useful or just plain cool.

However, in light of wanting to please my readers, I will post the link to VersionTracker again: and make the suggestion to register at the site (it’s free) where you have the ability to sign up for either daily or weekly email alerts which are specific for Mac, Windows, or Palm OS applications.

This partial screen shot shows what you will receive:


The nice thing about email alerts is that they provide a nice tabled listing of the newest apps, their size, and their license info. Each software title is a link back to it’s download page at VersionTracker. You’ll also find user feedback, and usually a link to the developer’s site as well. Most of the apps are freeware or shareware, but there are also betas, commercial licenses, and updates to current software.

At the site, you can choose to view Mac OS, Windows, or Palm OS apps, and then sort by specific operating system to narrow your view. Here’s the header that shows above the daily updated list of apps where you can search by category, view editor picks, or see what’s hot:


A trip to VersionTracker is definitely worth a few minutes of your time if you like free or inexpensive toys for your system.
