FreeApps: A Nice Bunch of Freeware Applications
Article by George Norman
On 25 Aug 2010
In the old days I used to dread when I had to perform a fresh Windows install. Because the hardware wasn’t all that good, it took forever for the installation process to complete. I would have to wait there in front of the computer for a very, very long time – which was never fun.

When hardware got better, I still dreaded performing a fresh install. Sure, because the hardware was better, it did not take as long for the installation process to complete. But once the installation process was complete, it would still take a long time to install all the various applications a computer user needs.


Enter FreeApps, a software catalog that will chase all these dreads away. What FreeApps does is it allows you to put together a bunch of freeware applications, then get an installer that encompasses them all. The applications you can choose from are sorted in various categories:
  • Browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari.
  • Communications: Skype, Thunderbird, Yahoo! Messenger, Camfrog, Windows Live Messenger, Digsby, Pidgin, Miranda IM, Google Talk.
  • Antivirus: AVG Free Anti-Virus, Avast Antivirus Home, Avira AntiVir Personal, Microsoft Security Essentials, ZoneAlarm.
  • Antipsyware: Security 360, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot – Search & destroy, Ad-Aware Free Anti-Malware, HiJackThis.
  • System Utilities: Advanced SystemCare Free, Smart Defrag, CCleaner, Revo Uninstaller, PC Wizard 2010, Glary Utilities, IObit Uninstaller, Defraggler, TerraCopy, Recuva, Belarc, Launchy, WinDirStat, Auslogics.
  • Office software:, CutePDF Writer, Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, PrimoPDF, AbiWord, SumatraPDF, FeedReader.
  • Audio and video: Real Player, Hulu Desktop, VLC Media Player, iTunes, Audacity, Winamp, Spotify, Xmedia Recode, MediaMonkey, FLV Player, GOM Player, AIMP, Songbird, K-Lite-Codec, KMPLayer, VSO Image REsizer.
  • Imaging: GIMP. Picasa, IrfanView, Paint.NET, FastStone, Inkscape, XnView.
  • CD & DVD: CDBurnerXP, Daemon Tools Lite, ImgBurn, Exact Audio Copy, AoA DVD Ripper SE, AnyDVD, HandBrake, Easy MPEG, Free Rip MP3.
  • Desktop enhacement: TimeLeft, ObjectDoc, NoteZilla.
  • File sharing: uTorrent, LimeWire, TeamViewer, FrostWire, FileZilla, BitComet, eMule, Vuze, HJSplit, UltraVNC

As you can see, the list of applications FreeApps has to offer is quite big – and it is constantly improving. Here’s how FreeApps makes your life easier: you select the apps you want to get by checking the box next to that application. Once you are done, click the big green Get Installer button and download a file onto your computer. When you run the file, it will download all the applications you specified earlier and install them. I think you will agree it is a lot easier than having to download each individual application and install it separately.

You can also register with FreeApps. There are some advantages for doing so. FreeApps will remember your list of favorite freeware apps, you can download FreeApps portable edition, gain access to FreeNew user forums, get notification when new freeware is added to the list, get giveaway notifications.
