WinSite describes itself as the place for shareware, demo-ware, trial-ware,
tips, and utilities for your computer.
|Free to submit to:||Authors must create an account before submitting software,|
|Conducts own review:|
|Site search:||At first glance the search facility is difficult to find - you cannot search from the main page, but have to click the "search winsite".|
|Provides user feedback:||You can vote for a product and submit a review.|
|Rating system:||based on user votes. What is a little unusual is that they don't publish a rating until at least 5 people have voted.|
|Accepts PAD files:|| The site
says it does, but at the time of reviewing (March 2005) a PAD
submission wasn't obvious.
A related point is that the site appears to store copies of all software submitted to it, so even if an author makes an update to their software and updates their PAD file accordingly, WinSite will not pick the change up.
|Gives download figures:|
|No link back needed:||Software authors do not need to provide a link back to the site from their own web site.|
