Makes it easier to screen for software that are similar but may differ so you can find features you didn't know you needed or should look for.

about AlternativeTo · May 2017 · Helpful Not helpful

When i add an android app i can only add the Google Play store as a place where to get the app from.

Is it possible to add "" as alternative android app store?

not really digging the new site

Comment by ccubedd
about AlternativeTo · Feb 2014 · Helpful Not helpful

First of all, Thanks for providing such an awesome service!

That said, I really don't like the new site. I thought i would get used to it, but i still haven't, and it bothers me that so many people in the software/webApp/operating system development world feel the need to keep "upgrading" things by giving them superficial facelifts. I understand that attracting new users is a big deal, but as an old user, when i see a great site try to mimic windows 8, it's like watching a beautiful young girl put on way too much makeup.

anyway, thats my two cents. I still feel that is the best place to find and review alternative software, and I will continue visiting your site and adding whatever content I can.

All the best,

alternativeTo needs a community, really

about AlternativeTo and Wakoopa Social · Aug 2012 · Helpful Not helpful

I'm a Wakoopa user, however it has been dead.

What Wakoopa good for me is:

  • Its community. Things get more connected. I browse reviews too much, so it wasn't just a tool for me.
  • Its tracker. Well, on alternativeTo, submitting softwares take much time and it is boring, tracking is much better.

limitations or flaws

about AlternativeTo · Oct 2011 · Helpful Not helpful

the most obvious flaw is the hard coded platforms;
when you try to add a OS you are forced to select one of the platforms and this doesnt seem to be the proper way, in my opinion there should be a field which categorises the software by its simplest type (entertainment, OS, ...etc) and when OS is selected the now hard coded platforms should appear to select the family of that OS
