Donation Coder New Apps For A New Year Event Results

Hi there ghacks readers!

It's mouser from speaking to you here. Martin has graciously invited me to make a guest post on ghacks about the latest event on the DonationCoder site, and I'm thrilled to be able to speak directly to the vast ghacks empire :)

Today we posted the results of our annual freeware celebration called NANY 2011 (that stands for "New Apps for the New Year").

It's an event where we invite all the coders who hang out on the forum and website to try to release a new freeware application at the beginning of the new year. Some of the coders even discovered us from ghacks(!). Over 34 new applications and web services have now been released, and we've posted a video screencast of each one.

Some of the entries include:

  • JottiQ - Batch queuing utility for's multi-engine malware scan website.
  • AskApic - Web community service for posting images and asking questions about them.
  • Webcam Video Diary - For recording and annotating videos/snapshots throughout the day.
  • Quick Cliq - Windows productivity tool with multiple clipboards, hotkeys and gestures.
  • Cautomaton - Commandline invocation of Windows right-click shell context menus items on files.
  • UserQuotes - Web service for collaborative management of quotes/reviews about your products.
  • SnapDb - Portable minimalist flat-file database application that can be distributed with data.

But there are many more. The page for all the even is here:

I hope you will stop by and check out the videos and new applications -- and maybe see if one of them is useful to you. If you have a feature request, post it on our forum. And if you are a coder, think about joining us in next year's NANY event!

Thank you!

    Thanks for the share.

    Trying out Quick Cliq and it tried to connect to an external server – not sure why but maybe the author should explain as this program does keyboard hook and captures copies etc. He doesn’t want it to look like a keylogger.

    Thanks for sharing. While I can’t really find anything on the list that might be useful to me I do commend the efforts!
