Giveaway of the Day, what is it, why is it and how is it? The word ‘Giveaway’ gives the impression of some kind of gift. It represents you are gifted with something which is not free. Here is the answer to what part.

Giveaway of the Day: Licensed Software and Game for Free | Greatest Reviews

Giveaway of the Day is a service providing us paid software legally for free. Every day they offer for FREE licensed software you’d have to buy otherwise. What? Yes you heard it all correct, legal softwares that too without emptying your pockets. They say” Our new initiative, Giveaway of the day, is finally open to its visitors and ready to present hot software titles and best software authors from all over the world”. They nominate one software title that will be a Giveaway title of that day. The software will be available for download for 24 hours (or more, if agreed by software publisher) and that software will be absolutely free. That means - not a trial, not a limited version - but a registered and legal version of the software will be free for their visitors. The software product will be presented in its full functionality, without any limitations as they say. Actually there are limitations like no support or future upgrades.

In addition to softwares they also provide games. Few months ago they used to provide games every day but now they provide them only on weekends. Though don’t expect to get Windows Vista, MS office 2007, NFS carbon or any other like that (I wonder can they provide them as well). But how can they provide us these softwares and games for free, do they buy them for us? I will tell you soon. So now come to, why are they doing so? Well it’s a long story. Just joking, no story at all but a simple money making strategy (they will not say so). They earn money through the heavy traffic on their websites. What they do is that they buy/register the software and games and pay the price for multiple licenses (yup the answer to ‘do they buy for us’ in here). But the license or registered name is giveawayoftheday.

What they provide are really worthy as they provide paid ones to us meaning we do not need to hole into our own pockets. The programs provided are usually not well known (branded big companies) but are good enough. These are not big in size, most are below 10-15 MB mark thus making downloading no problem even for dial-up connection. These are provided for downloading and installing during duration of one day (24 hours as stated in above paragraphs), which could be increased if the software companies allow. The software and games must be installed before the time expires. When they are installed during the duration of the time given, will activate it to full version (must be connected to internet).

That’s not all there are some more features as well. They also have freeware library which is readily updated. They also provide banner to place in your websites and blog sites. These notifies of the program which is provided by them. My review, it’s a good service though now days their quality seems to have decreased. I am a great admirer of this service. I used to visit it every day downloading every software and games I liked (I do not do so now). I was full of games and softwares then. I sometime lost opportunities of getting to quite good titles of software and games when I forgot to check them. Well the website is very active you will find almost 100s of comments on every giveaway. You can judge the worthiness of their giveaway from those comments.

Ok what are you waiting for? You do not get opportunities like this every where. Even if you are not interested (sick of you if you are not interested in free paid softwares), do visit the site and you may be fortune to find the program which you wish to buy. If not that, than at least an equivalent one will surely be there. Go to Giveaway of the Day.
