Commercial Software Available for Free 24 Hours

Giveaway of the day is a site that offers one commercial software for free every day. The trick is that the application is available on the site for only one day.

Until today, the site offered interesting software like the excellent file manager Frigate, but also many puzzles and screensavers. Today you can download LoadScout, a program that lets you view the content of a remote archive or the metadata of a MP3 file without actually downloading it.

The authors of the site hope that "Giveaway of the day will allow both publishers and clients to meet each other and win together".

So what do you think? Will this site succeed?


  1. It's interesting. I'll be famous among users no doubt. But do they have a Business Model ?

  2. If it becomes popular, they have the potential to make a fortune charging shareware makers to display their software.

    But until then...

  3. Also check out - they do daily discount deals on software
