Sometimes you wish you owned or had access to a certain app which is much too expensive and you end up thinking to yourself whether it’s worth purchasing it or not. For example, any Adobe products or Microsoft Suite software.
We’ve found a solution with a website called AlternativeTo.Net which, similar to its name, is a resource hub for finding alternative versions of paid software.
This website is 100% free to access and is a hidden gem that you definitely need to start using!
You can filter the types of software that you’re looking for on the top menu bar which ranges from productivity, social, development, and project & task management apps. The good thing about this site is that the apps and software they recommend are available on all sorts of different platforms such as online, Windows, Android, Mac, iPhone, Google Chrome etc.
You won’t have any problem finding software that you need!
You can start by scrolling down on the homepage and seeing what alternatives other people on the site are looking for and searching for the most.
For this example, we’ve selected Adobe Photoshop. On its page, you can see all relevant information about the app such as a brief summary, whether it’s paid or free and which platforms it is currently available on.
If you scroll further down, you can see reviews that people have left.
Most importantly, to find the alternative versions of this app, be sure to click on the tab called ‘Alternatives to [Software].’ In this case it is ‘Alternatives to Adobe Photoshop.’
You can then scroll down and view all alternatives of that app with its relevant information and reviews. We’ll click into GIMP to see how to then access or download the software.
Once you click on the app, you’ll be taken to its page with all its information and reviews. In the links and download section, there is a button you can click, which will bring you to the relevant page where you can download or access that software. And done!
Be sure to bookmark the Alternative.To website for any quick fix or easy access to any software substitute!
