Software Manager will help you manage software installations easily. In this respect, it can advise you on downloading and installing programs and it will also ease the process of upgrading to Windows 7. By means of an online database, this program will keep you up to date as to the most popular software and recent software releases. In addition, it can inform you how to keep your programs safe so that you can easily install them in case you need to reinstall the operating system.
Its user-friendly interface has an attractive design with pleasant colors, icons and fonts. This tabbed interface will successfully help you go straight to your objective. Windows 7 Specials will recommend you a series of steps to upgrade your PC from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 7. In this regard, it will provide you with links to programs that can help you check if your hardware meets Windows 7 requirements, back up and transfer your files as well as reinstall applications. The tab labeled Software Download will give you advice on software according to several categories, such as must-have, most popular, new releases, editor´s picks, user favorites and top freeware. In the same manner, there is a special tab for games. If you decide to download and install one of these applications, you will need to click on the provided link. Finally, you can get information on how to receive expert service in case of an IT emergency.
Although I would not deny that Software Manager is a useful application, its features are exaggerated in the developer’s description: it is limited to providing links to a series of programs (something that a web page could also do). Its real value lies on presenting a software classification according to use, popularity, type, etc.
