Looking For The Right App For The Task? Try Catchfree.

I often get calls, emails, and questions that start something like this. “What’s the best app for……?” I’d like to think that I’m a great source for information but I gotta tell you, keeping up with everything is a herculean task that I just can’t keep up with.

So imagine my delight when I Stumbled Upon (yep, another shout out to that excellent site) an app called Catchfree. In it’s brilliant simplicity, it has created a graphical table of available free apps that fulfill a specific need, such as how to backup your files online or how to connect to another person’s computer.

Catchfree has done the research and come up with the most popular free apps for whatever it is you need to do and given it grades based on multiple criteria, such as user popularity, number of Facebook likes, how easy it is to configure, and other features which can help you decide if it’s right for you.

In addition to the table of grades, there’s a section on the right of the screen where you can whittle down the choices base on operating system and the device you plan to use it on. This is a great feature. Very helpful.

There’s also a tips sections as well as an area where you can post specific questions and get answers for those pesky “but what if this happens?” scenarios. I love the fact that you can ask any of the questions you’re often afraid to ask or see that someone else has asked for you.

This website actually got my heart beating a little faster. Sad, I know. I can see certain people I know shaking their heads in dismay. But all you fellow geeks out there can relate I’m sure. This one’s a keeper.
