Richard's Recommendations

Below are the freeware packages that are running on my machines. Each one has been thoroughly tested. If you find that some of these are not what you want, additional choices are listed below my recommendations, by functional category. I am going to provide information on applications for several different systems including WINDOWS, ANDROID, Blackberry and IOS.

If you are looking for an application and can't find it here, drop me a note and I'll see what I can dig up.
