File Transit Inc. provides software for free use or trial. Some of the software you find here will be 100% free - you can download it and not worry about ever paying for it. Some of the free software is supported purely by an author's goodwill, some by ads, and others by donations (please support such authors if you find their software useful). Other software is designed for trial use. Sometimes an author will provide a free basic version of their software in hope you will want to purchase a more feature rich version from them. Similarly, some software comes with some features disabled until you purchase it. Some software will only work for a limited time (either a certain number of days or a set number of uses). When you have completed the trial use it will fail to work until you purchase it. Each author is free to devise their own way of providing software for use, and many have unique methods!
To be more specific, File Transit does not "provide" the software, we provide an avenue for individual software authors to make their software available to the general public. We are a place where all authors can bring their software for distribution and anyone with Internet access can come to find software they need to fulfill their needs.
We began operations in 1996 with a very, very meager two download links to mirc and audio grabber... it was hosted on geocities with a 42 character domain name. We have steadily grown since then, so much so that in 2002 a new corporation was set up to handle the growth.
Today we show over one million pages each month, have over seven thousand authors, and have well over ten thousand listings including applications, games, and much, much more. We make it simple to find software with many exciting categories and easy searching.
Keep coming back and watch as we grow to service your needs better each day.
