According to Dictionary.com a down load is “…a verb (used with object) Computers.” which means “…to transfer (software, data, character sets, etc.) from a distant to a nearby computer, from a larger to a smaller computer, or from a computer to a peripheral device.”

There is a huge range of of software and apps or application that can be readily accessed for free.
Free software comes in two forms as follows:


Freeware,as its name suggests is software or an application which is free of charge. The term ‘free’ usually only refers to the price. You are not usually able to copy or further distribute copies of the software or app and you may not have access to the source code.
An example of freeware is the WordPress Software I am using to post this page to this Website.


Shareware is software which is initially free of charge where you are given access to the program for a trial period. After the trial period a payment must be made to keep accessing the software or to access extra features. An example of this Shareware is the program Microsoft Expression Web 4 which I recently experimented with for a sixty day free trial.
