Donationcoder, one of my favorite tech sites, published the list of NANY 2019 applications that programmers released for the event.

NANY, or New Apps for the New Year, is an annual event held by Donationcoder. Programmers may pledge to create applications or games for the event and release them for free to the public.

You may check out the programs released in 2018 and 2017 and use the search to find programs dating back to as early as 2007.

This year, I'm going to highlight my favorites at the top before I list the remaining programs. The majority of programs are available for Windows only, but you find Android applications as well.

You can check out the overview on the Donationcoder website as well.

Process Watcher

Process Watcher monitors processes on the system and writes information about processes to a log file. The program runs in the background once executed and writes to the log whenever new processes are recognized by it.

While there are other programs for the task, Process Watcher's main advantage over most of them is its simplicity.

Each process is listed with timestamps, names, path information, and other information that you may find useful.


scurled lnk files

SCURLed by skwire is a batch editor for .LNK and .URL files. You may load any number of .LNK or .URL files in the program and edit them individually or in bulk.

The application displays information about each loaded file, and activation of any file displays its properties in editable fields.

You could use the program to modify URL links, e.g. when a website moved to a new domain or switched to HTTPS, or modify LNK files after changing paths on the device, e.g. moving programs to a new destination.

    I run DonationCoder’s ‘URL Snooper’ ( ) mainly for catching radio streams’ urls (I’m a big fan of radios) either on the radios’ sites either from radio portals. Then I can listen to those radios (mp3, ogg) right from Firefox without having to endure most sites’ blabla, ads & tracking (not all though, some places especially in the jazz area are worth being visited, lots of news etc).

    I had previously scanned Donationcoder NANY 2019 but missed seeing Process Scanner. Thanks for highlighting it at Ghacks. I had been trying to get this information in the past manually, but my eyeball method is obviously subject to my human error. Process Scanner sure meets my need.

    Is there a (easy) way
    to run any of these wonderful apps
    under Ubuntu/Debian Linux?.

    (I migrated from Windows
    more than 5 years ago…).

    thanks for any pointers….

      (@trends) I don’t see a useful MS Windows program in the list that I would want to run “under Ubuntu/Debian Linux”. But in case I did, I would look for a Linux equivalent first, and if I couldn’t find one, I would try to run the Windows program under Wine.

    the URL for “FFFilterGUI” is wrong, it points to Shorthand 3_2.
