Default Mac freeware site

Came upon this interesting freeware site that mac users might find useful.

Thanks for the link. I needed to check out Mac FTP apps today so I had a look at that site.

Bright and attractive, some useful stuff there, far too many ads though. The main problem is that there is no way to find anything, that I can see anyway. It's simply a WordPress site with a ton of blog posts that are Mac freeware apps. I didn't see any lists or way to find something, or even any site search. So I gave up.

But you can come across the odd find by luck - I found a Mac equivalent to NetStumbler there, AirRadar. So I guess all was not lost...

@wee_ag
Hi.
You might find what you are looking for here http://www.techsupportalert.com/cont...s-mac-os-x.htm
Some of the applications reviewed on this site do have a mac version but we do not, as far as i know, have a dedicated mac section. Any app with a mac version is marked as such in the quick selection area of each review.
Hope this helps.

Still looking for an editor to take on and 'own' a Mac freeware section to get it going...

Editing a review at Gizmo's is a rewarding and satisfying endeavor. I would recommend it. You might like it too

lol...maybe we are. Seriously though, if you are interested it would be great to have a section dedicated to mac freeware and if not, no hard feelings: you can't blame us for trying

Have a good one.

Nobody wants to talk you into something ... but man, is it rewarding to be an editor here !

Seriously, it really is because we don't have an editor for Mac Freeware that we do not have a Mac section yet. It also seems to be not so popular as you can see by the frequency this Mac forum is used. The demand for Linux stuff is surely higher.

I am not a Mac fan and not an intense Mac user. But I am really happy about my MacMini that I use with my HDTV. But my knowledge and the time I spent with it is not enough to write serious articles about Mac freeware.

If you feel you might be interested in such editorial activities we would surely appreciate it.
