Editor's review

Are you tired of the hassle of clicking the Next button millions of times? GetIt has allowed users to easily install applications with one click. Over 400 freeware software titles are available for you to install this way.

Features: Linux has apt-get functions implemented that helps one click installation of applications. The app-get gets the set up for the application and gets it installed in your machine. What GetIt does is, it just provides you with one single interface to take advantage of your favorite application-getters through this one interface. It indexes repositories locally, and lets you choose which program to install from a master list of ALL available programs. On your choosing an application, the GetIt is able to find out which app-getter to communicate with for that particular program, get it and install it.

The utility also has the capability to chain install a series of applications. So if you have anew PC to be installed with a set of known application, the whole operation can happen automatically. GetIt was designed to be used with Find And Run Robot, and as such has a Folder Interface. However, you can just as easily just use GetIt from the command-line (and thus any other Application Launcher, like Launchy). There is also a GUI for you to use. If you look at the GetIt\Installs\ folder, you will find the entire repository database readily accessible via files. This is useful for two reasons: having a folder interface, allows you to easily use GetIt in combination with FindAndRunRobot or you could simply double-click on the desired folder.

Overall: Administrators who need to install things frequently will find this to be a big help in relieving their tedium.

Publisher's description

There are many Windows implementations of a Linux style apt-get function that let you type "install Firefox", and poof, you have Firefox installed.
GetIt is not an application-getter/installer. It just provides you with one single interface to take advantage of your favorite application-getters, all in one place.
When you want to install something, you shouldn't have to think "Hm, which windows apt-get clone has this program that I want to get?".
That's where GetIt comes in. It indexes repositories locally, and lets you choose which program to install from a master list of ALL available programs.
You choose the program you want to install, and GetIt knows which app-getter to talk to in order to make the installation happen.
While GetIt comes with its own GUI to let you pick which applications to install, the only way to be able to incrementally search through installable programs is to use GetIt with Find And Run Robot.
You can now use the GUI to chain install as many applications in one go as you desire. Great for setting up new PCs with the latest versions of your favorite software.
