Do you ever wonder what software products you spend the most time on? I do. While there are ways to check the last time you used a software product it is not a 'walk in the park.' Wakoopa, an Amsterdam-based startup, tracks what software, games and other applications you use. Similar to how Alexa keeps track of web site metrics, Wakoopa looks to keep track of applications that you run on your PC or Mac. Wakoopa makes it easy to share your top software as well as discover new software from other Wakoopa users.
How does Wakoopa work? By installing a small tracker application, Wakoopa tracks the software you spend your time using while you are on your computer. Wakoopa also alerts users of software updates to applications they are using and makes it easy to discover new software applications by looking at the shared software of others. The Wakoopa software is currently available for both PC and Mac operating systems and Linux appears to be coming soon. If you are concerned about privacy issues related to sharing your computer software activities, like I am, you might not want to install the tracker. But you could still benefit from those who are sharing software usage via Wakoopa to discover new software.
