A few words about traditions

Hi there!

There is one thing we do every year – you know, a sort of tradition to gather all the giveaway hits of old year and bring them down on you in January. Though this is predictable in general, the titles are always unknown. And noway we will give you a list of them in advance. Everything has its time and the time to start is January 1, 2011.

However a couple of hints are quite legal, aren’t they? Let’s see what we can tell for now… We have got several flash-related products, photo editing and organising applications, DVD creating and multimedia editing tools, a data-recovery solution and a few system utilities tools.

So while we are getting ready you can start your guesswork! :)

And Cheerful New Year to everybody!

Best regards,
GOTD team


  1. I’m hoping one is Snowfox DVD Ripper!!!

  2. I always enjoy checking GOTD every day, even if the software isn’t always something I need. Looking forward to another year. Hope you have a good one!

    Comment by James — December 31st, 2010 at 8:18 am
  3. I like GOTD everyday! Everyone want something Free when it is available. So I can say that I get what I am looking for, even if the software from GOTD is not what I really need right away.

    So I just guess that you might keep Corel Video Studio, or else GIF Animator, oh it might be RecoverMyFile!!


    Let’s see!

  4. I wish you keep ZDSoft Screen Recorder!

  5. Happy New Year
    Thanks for the heads up. What about the Games side? If you only have one game a weekend could you at least make it available both days? I missed the last one:-(.

    Comment by Amirul Afiq — December 31st, 2010 at 11:15 am
  7. Daemon Tools Pro has to be among the list. I missed this one, I am using the Lite version. It’s great software. Thanks GOTD. Happy New Year!

  8. I would like Emisoft AntiMalware… ;)

    Comment by Paulo — December 31st, 2010 at 12:20 pm
  9. Photoshop CS5 (or even Elements 9) would be useful.

    Comment by Ross — December 31st, 2010 at 3:34 pm
  10. Thanks guys and gals. I have been following this site for quite a few years. My kids love the games and they never complain because they are free. Keep up the excellent work that you do. Once again thank you for a great site.

    Comment by Special KB — December 31st, 2010 at 4:10 pm
  11. i hope it will be TuneUp Utilities 2010/2011 version….

    Comment by Purnomo — December 31st, 2010 at 8:18 pm
  12. The occasional Mac item would be nice as would a few more games.
    Thank you and Happy New Year to all at GOTD.

    Comment by chinba — December 31st, 2010 at 10:47 pm
  13. Thanks so much for all the giveaways this past year! With your help, I’ve filled up my entire hard drive and had to go out and buy an external!
    Keep up the great work and I hope everybody has a better year in 2011 than they did in 2010!
    Happy New Years!!!
    :) Molly

  14. Well, whatever software is offered I would like to thank the GAoTD team for all they do and to wish them a Happy New Year!!

    …from a (very) long-term GAoTD fan, Beaks

    Comment by Beaks — January 1st, 2011 at 2:24 am
  15. With the exception of DVDFab – I would like any decent software other than more video converters. Perhaps software like installshield, report generators similar to Crystal Reports. You know real software.

    I would even think that extending what you do to have a “business software giveaway of the week/fortnight” would work – I would not mind if there was relevant advertising on that site either.

    Just a suggestion.

    Comment by Leslie — January 1st, 2011 at 2:53 am
  16. Would like CodedColor PhotoStudio, please.
    Thank you always.

    Comment by CathL — January 1st, 2011 at 3:10 am
  17. Happy New Year. iPad applets? More than occasional Mac software? Anyway, in 2011 GOTD will undoubtedly provide mr mith mote gems.

    Comment by Hans Doddema — January 1st, 2011 at 3:13 am
  18. I would like…

    to wish everyone an error free 2011 – may your hard drives always have enough free space for… just one more Giveaway! :)

    I could give a hint… There is at least one Giveaway that I missed the first time round – and have been waiting for it to come back – definitely worth waiting for! (OK, so it’s not a very helpful hint).

  19. Happy New Year – and thank you.

    Clipdiary is one of my favourites, I love how it keeps a record of everything I copy and paste, great program.
    Hope you’ll be offering the latest version.

    Comment by Zen — January 1st, 2011 at 3:27 am
  20. I guess, the flash programs will be Sothink SWF Quicker and Vectorian Giotto.

    Comment by B — January 1st, 2011 at 3:42 am
  21. Happy New Year!
    I’ve been silently visiting and downloading GOTD titles for several years now, and I thought a “thank you” for your service was long overdue. There are many GOTD’s that I use on a daily basis (Process Lasso comes to mind, as I see it in my system tray), but also Sticky Password, many Wondershare, Paragon, and MagicScore programs, etc., etc. Probably more importantly for your supplying companies, I download them first on my “test” computer, and if I find them useful, I buy them for my other computers. Almost as valuable are the comments, where I have found excellent alternatives suggested by your users.

    Yours is one of the few websites I try to check every day. I appreciate your hard work and hope this continues to be a successful venture for you. Have a terrific 2011!

    – Sam

  22. Happy New Year to GOTD and all its visitors.

    On a warm day August 14th we got Sun Village 3D screensaver.

    I would like to have Snow Village 3D screensaver too.

    Very much appropriate these cold januari days.

    What ever you’ll do, thanks al lot and may this year be good on you.

    Comment by Zorgon — January 1st, 2011 at 5:00 am
  23. Happy New Year to the GOTD team.
    Thanks for all your hard work over the year finding us all some great software!

    Looking forward to some reruns during the next few weeks.
    Have a great 2011 !

    Comment by Phil D — January 1st, 2011 at 9:57 am
  24. Happy New year! May 2011 bring us more and interesting give aways for all. Thanks to the GOTD team for your hard work, and to the companies that supply us with the programs….to give away :)

    Comment by Ana Luisa — January 1st, 2011 at 11:03 am
  25. Please, more Playrix games!

    Comment by Jason Carver — January 1st, 2011 at 1:23 pm
  26. So, during this 2011, are you going to be offering a game EVERY weekend? I love your games and miss having them offered. You’re not consistent – sometimes both days are filled, other weekends, only one day, and more often than not – NO GAMES! And here is it Saturday – albeit January 1st – and once again NO GAME! Please get the games back on track with 2 every weekend. Please be consistent!

    Comment by Connie Jo Nellis — January 1st, 2011 at 2:19 pm
  27. I would like to see Online Armour ++ reran. The subscription is going to expire in 30 days.

    Comment by john — January 1st, 2011 at 2:38 pm
  28. I’d like to see Magic Score Maestro again.

    Comment by vista13 — January 1st, 2011 at 6:28 pm
  29. I would like Online Armor++ or Kasperksy. Ha, in my dreams.

    Comment by Julia — January 2nd, 2011 at 2:56 am
  30. Just one prog on MY wish list:- Revo Uninstaller Pro (PLEASE) All the best to GAOTD from Newcastle upon Tyne,here in England.

    Comment by GoiGoi — January 2nd, 2011 at 5:33 am
  31. Just wanted to say Happy New Year to GOTD and all the people who help make this site the success it is. It is the only site I check daily to see what is offered. Even though some of the offers aren’t something I may want, I know someone else will want it and something for me may be coming next time.
    Keep up the fantastic work and a big thank you to you all.

    Comment by Linda — January 2nd, 2011 at 7:55 am
  32. Happy New Year to all.
    @GOTD : I hope Online Armor will come back soon…

    Comment by firefly — January 2nd, 2011 at 8:02 am
  33. I missed the Artstudio giveaway in January and reading the reviews I hope it will be among the favorites.

    Best regards and thanks a lot for all the useful software in 2010,

    Comment by momos — January 2nd, 2011 at 8:30 am
  34. I am still hoping for a giveaway of Pitfall, the lost expedition somewhere in the rest of the year! ;-)

    But, most of all, I need to say Thank You, all people at GOTD and the software providers.

    And… Happy New Year!

    Comment by freebird31 — January 2nd, 2011 at 9:54 am
  35. Webcam software. You gave away one many moons ago and I lost it. I have a new webcam and this software would be perfect.

    Comment by CanuckEh — January 2nd, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Comment by HAL — January 2nd, 2011 at 3:40 pm
  37. Thanks for everything. I’ve made some good friends because of this site and always enjoy coming to see whats being given away. I’ve purchased quite a lot of the best programs that you have given away so as to get the updates and online support, and i’m sure I’ll be purchasing lots more over the coming years.

    Lets hope the situation improves for the game giveaway side of the project. :)

    Warm regards

  38. Thanks for all the goodies in 2010. Also looking forward to 2011 winners. At risk of being crass, how about some excellent stock trading program? Not just an Excel template thing, A real full featured trader. Quotetracker or ToSwim kind but higher end. Might be some legal issues so not holding breath but figure what the heck it’s a New Year filled with all kinds of possibilities!

    Comment by beergas — January 3rd, 2011 at 8:41 am
  39. Happy New Year GOTD ! Can’t wait for some of the stuff you hinted at. I have an idea, but I’ll wait. Keep up the good work !

    Comment by 2-SHEDS — January 3rd, 2011 at 10:16 am
  40. I agree with #5, that it would be nice to have a second day for the game giveaway if there is only one game for the weekend. That way people with slower connection speeds have more time to download the game, since games are usually bigger then the software programs.

    Comment by Darthyoda6 — January 3rd, 2011 at 12:30 pm
  41. adobe master or sonic software would be useful
    Happy New Year @ all

    Comment by zappel — January 3rd, 2011 at 3:05 pm
  42. Looking forward to the odd surprise!

    In the meantime –

    Love, Light and Peace to everyone for 2011.


    Comment by Jerry Chance — January 3rd, 2011 at 3:06 pm
  43. I hope you get:
    Online Amour ++
    Again coz my subs ran out yesterday!!!

  44. Happy New Year to GOTD team!
    Thanks for all the goodies you’ve shared through the last year. :)

    I believe in you… your choices are better than any wishlist I can make. :)

    Comment by Hmm.. — January 4th, 2011 at 10:46 pm
  45. I hope you’ll give WinX DVD Ripper Platinum again because I missed it even the rerun!!!
    Happy New Year!!!

    Comment by abs — January 5th, 2011 at 3:06 am
  46. Happy New Year guys

    would love to see Artisteer available as it’s an awesome product for creating WordPress and Blogger templates in the Home/Educational edition – and most CMS platforms in the Standard.

    Would also be awesome to see Twonky Server or Manager offered, as Twonky do make the best DLNA server on the market!

    Comment by Andrew M — January 5th, 2011 at 12:21 pm
  47. Looking forward to any good E-mail client.

    Comment by KP — January 5th, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Thanks GAOTD for all the fantastic offers throughout the year! Also thanks to everyone here for your very useful comments & opinions.

    Here’s to another great year filled with awesome give-aways! CHEERS :)

  50. Thanks GOTD for all the great giveaways.

    I’m hoping for Auslogics BoostSpeed 5. :D

    Comment by BooN — January 9th, 2011 at 7:38 am
  51. I lost Chameleon Monitor on a sneaky update (hubby doing me a favor–giggle). On a trial version now, so watching out for the GA version :)

  52. I hope that you giveaway,a magnifier. You had a good one a year or so ago, but I lost it when computer crash.

    Comment by Rick — January 9th, 2011 at 8:20 am
  53. I’m hoping for iSpring Pro or Presenter to be re-run.

    Comment by BR — January 9th, 2011 at 8:54 am
  54. I would like Emisoft AntiMalware too ;)
    It would not be a rerun, but a great gift.
    Greetings from Germany.

    Comment by marge — January 9th, 2011 at 8:57 am
  55. I’d enjoy seeing more PRO versions of software offered. I saw one the other day, a photo editing software that was the HOME version in which a very specific feature, the ability to use 8Bf Photoshop Plugin files, was excluded. The program didn’t seem much better than GIMP and so the inability to do the above with version offered was a deal breaker.

    Comment by Paul — January 9th, 2011 at 9:01 am
  56. Hopefully ArtStudio and iSpring Presente are on your list.r

    Comment by Justine — January 9th, 2011 at 9:21 am
  57. Thanks GOTD for all the great giveaways and efforts.

    I’m hoping for Auslogics Boostspeed 5. :D

    Comment by Boon — January 9th, 2011 at 10:31 am
  58. I also hope it will be TuneUp Utilities 2010/2011 version….I downloaded it when it was available, but somehow a gremlin appeared on my system and all my files were corrupt so I couldn’t install it. (Holding my thumbs up GOTD ;-)

    Comment by Carla — January 9th, 2011 at 11:14 am
  59. I would love to see Wondershare’s Time Freeze … and on the game side, Aqua Words.

    Comment by JennLynn — January 9th, 2011 at 11:15 am
  60. Oh, I do hope MOVIENIZER is on the list! I had it, and a friend got it and absolutely loves it… However, I tried to do the indicated update and lost my GAOTD registration… boo hoo!! Told him not to update, and he’s a happy clam.

    Comment by JC — January 9th, 2011 at 11:22 am
  61. need Web Page Maker.
    Got new computer

    Comment by bob — January 9th, 2011 at 12:26 pm
  62. I guessed Vectorian Giotto :)

  63. Hi. I would love to see some Need For Speed titles, especially those that are out of manufacture (1 ~ Hot Pursuit 2). :)

  64. It would be fabulous to see iSpring Pro offered again!!!

    Or any (all!) of the Sothink products :)

    Comment by Newbie — January 9th, 2011 at 3:04 pm
  65. thanks for all the hard work. it’s very much appreciated (even when i don’t have a personal use for the particular day’s offering, it’s a great way to hear about software)
    i hope one of the re-runs is So Think Logo Maker (for some reason it says it’s not registered anymore, and i’d love a chance to re-download it).

    Comment by jg — January 9th, 2011 at 3:52 pm
  66. iSpring power point to flash lost it on a doa computer would love to see it again

    Comment by Anotherhuman — January 9th, 2011 at 4:58 pm
  67. I would like to thank the GAoTD team for all their hard work and to wish them a Happy New Year. Any programmes similar to DVD Fab would be greatly appreciated and compatable with Windows 7 would be great. From a very sunny east coast of Australia., temp. mid 20’s C.

    Comment by Scozzie — January 9th, 2011 at 5:20 pm
  68. I personally am hoping for InPaint again.

    Comment by Kevin — January 9th, 2011 at 5:29 pm
  69. Many thanks for all the goodies that are offered here! There are several weeks worth of give aways I missed due to PC repair. I remember seeing a program listed for converting your Start menu that I would dearly love to have…missed it by one day!

    Also, I wonder if there’s any possibility of Zoner offering us the Pro version of Photo Studio 13? What an awesome surprise that would be!!! :)

    Thanks again and a healthy and Happy New Year to all!
