We’ve just started up a neat little side project called MacFaves, where you can submit and vote on your fave Mac apps. It’s something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, but couldn’t figure out a good way to do it until we came across a cool new service called Slinkset.
Once you login to MacFaves, you can submit an app you feel deserves to be on the list along with some comments. Currently, there are two categories to choose from — freeware and payware. We figured this would appeal to thriftmac readers in their quest for free stuff.
You can also go through the list and vote an app up or down as you see fit. We’ve already salted the list with half a dozen apps sitting in the dock here at thriftmac HQ — just to get things rolling.
To top things off, there’s a widget running in the sidebar at right so you can tell at a glance what’s going on at MacFaves.
It’s all meant to be in good fun, but with any luck you may find yourself discovering some cool new programs. Be sure to let us know what you think of the site, either in the comments below or by email. Should there be more categories? Should we focus only on freeware? Is it too much like iusethis?
Speaking of side projects, don’t forget macgameshuffle — it’s a great way to explore dozens of absolutely free Mac games.
