More than twenty applications have been released at the N.A.N.Y. Challenge website of Donation Coders. New Applications for a New Year is a collection of more than 20 freeware applications that do all kinds of useful things.
They have been created by developers who pledged to release a new game to celebrate the beginning of the new year.
I decided to list all applications that were released this year. Each app is listed with its name and a short description that informs you about what it has to offer. It helps you get a quick overview of all programs released this year.
As you can see below this is a huge list of applications that have been created and I'm sure that you will find some that could be useful for you. Most are very specialized but still worth a look.
