Hi there ghacks readers!
It's mouser from DonationCoder.com 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 DonationCoder.com 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:
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!
