The friends over on DonationCoder hold an annual software development event called NANY -- New Apps for the New Year -- in which programmers pledge to release programs and apps.
The results of the NANY 2018 event have been published on the DonationCoder forum, and you may head over to the forum to download any app or program from there for free.
I write a summary each year to make this easier for you and as a thank you to DonationCoder as they have a remarkable thing going over there and deserve more attention than they get.
