Written over 1 year ago by IanDorfman

We here at AlternativeTo are proud to announce that we've reached an amazing milestone: Over 80,000 apps, software, and services are now listed on our ever-expanding database of alternatives!

Small AlternativeTo iconAlternativeTo launched publicly on March 11th, 2009. In the over ten years since then, our mission has stayed the same: helping you find the right software for your computer, mobile phone, or tablet. To get as far as we have, we asked for your help in ensuring that any alternative recommendations are genuine and from a wide range of genuine perspectives and use cases. Quality over quantity has always been our view of how AlternativeTo should approach recommending alternatives, and that isn't changing.

Thanks to your support and work over these past ten years, anyone looking for alternatives to software can now browse a massive 80,000 app database to see if they can find software that better suits their needs and wants. The variety of software covered, from construction to gaming to social networks and much more, is now full of great alternatives with insightful recommendations (and words of warning) as to why you might want to use another program or service to accomplish your goals.

Again, we couldn't have done this without your consistent and tireless help. Thank you all so much for being a part of this crowdsourced software recommendation revolution with us! Your ten years of passion and enthusiasm for ensuring people can find software that better fits what they need is what drives us, and we don't plan on stopping any time soon.
