Application suggestions for ZeuAPP
Posted 08 March 2011 - 08:12 AM
As you already know I'm the the developer of ZeuAPP which is featured on FreewareBB. Since we recently updated our app to version 1.7, we can remotely add new programs to our application. If you have any programs to recommend, that we should include into ZeuAPP I would be grateful. We're looking to expand our list from 160 programs now to even more programs. We want to provide our users with quality software, and since you're Freeware veterans, I believe there isn't better place to ask people to nominate what freeware software should be included.

Other than giving a recommendation, what else would be required?
Posted 08 March 2011 - 04:40 PM
- Space Management: Free Disk Analyzer (Extensoft I think), SpaceSniffer, RidNacs
- File Management : AC Browser Free
- Browser : Opera, K-Meleon
- Security : Safehouse Explorer
- Web : Local Website Archive Lite
- Notes taking : AM Notebook Lite

Just a couple of humble suggestions; you don't currently have a 'Backup' category (or at least I could not find one)
Macrium Reflect (imaging)
Back4Sure (portable available)
May I also suggest adding to the Security section:
Sandboxie (easy to use sandboxing application)
WinPatrol Free (heuristic protection/startup manager)
TweakNow PowerPack 2011 (free suite of cleaning/maintenance tools)
PicPick (screen capture/editor)
Jarte (simple, easy to use word processor)
WordWeb Free (resident dictionary/thesaurus)
Keep up the good work!!

There you will find the BEST freeware ON THE PLANET, reviewed and compared.
If itīs not in Gizmos top choice in each category, then it is NOT worth to be in ZeuApp.
Thatīs my oppinion.

My worry is that too many people put too much importance on recommendations from sites, I prefer to put more importance on the users votes which is one area we'll be looking to extend and simplify in the coming months here on FreewareBB

Hey BosseWeb - That really is a naive statement to make! The TechSupportAlert site offers a very good guide to freeware BUT it is a guide only and the "top choices" do not come from Gizmo (Ian) Richards personally. Each category has its own 'editor' who has been drawn from the general public, their credentials are an unknown quantity and their selections based on personal opinion only.
The entire 'what's the best freeware' debate is very subjective (horses for courses) and really, your statement is pretty outrageous. Not everything that's recommended on the TechSupportAlert site is necessarily the best in its class, it is just someone's personal view.
And that is my opinion.

Just downloaded and used this program and used for the first time, quite a good idea. BUT, I would like to see a feature where you can hide programs, or make some favourite. THEN with a feature to import/ export this list so that it can be applied on any other PC. I think this would make it very usable. i.e make it portable/ transferable. Any NEW programs could be marked as unseen or rated. Maybe a rating system would be best, infact make it perfect! Then you would have your own rating system, e.g. 5 stars: ALWAYS install, 4 stars mostly install, 3 stars possibly install, etc.
For example, when installed a clean version of an operating system (usually XP!), then I usually install good, basic programs and this would make life much easier!!
Quite a few of my programs that I use are already in the list, but a few arnt, that I actually use and rate as 5 star, maybe not google earth! (and recommend, of course!)
Hope there are no repeats that are already in the list!
Geosetter (mapping/ GPS) YOu GOT to have this!!!
GoogleEarth (mapping/ GPS) not that google need advertising!!, but good and usful)
Teamspeak 9gaming / comms)
Amaya (web design/ internet)
FileOrganiser (Filemanager, renamer)
Autoruns (startup manager)
Thanks, keep up the good work!

I started something similar (https://freewarebb.com/files/file/8281-essential-freeware-christmas-downloads-2009/) but just haven't had the time to keep it up

Butterfly 2.0 (An ovulation-menstruation calender, quite popular)
CSV2SQL 1.3 (SQL-programming aid, in databases)
The following programs are technical-chemical tools, maybe less suitable for inclusion because they aim at a very small user group.
REDOX 2.0 (Redox reactions)
IRPal 2.0 (Infrared spectroscopy)
MSPal 1.0 (Mass spectrometry)

They are all listed here on FreewareBB.
Just do a search on "SSuite Office". As quoted above, some of them are listed and reviewed at Gizmo's and Techsupportalert.
Just wanted to add my two cents worth, you did ask!.
