About

Hey,

Thanks for dropping by!

I’m Jessica, co-founder and content manager of AnySoftwareTools.

Having been immersed in the startup culture in the Silicon Valley, I thought a lot about how to pitch ourselves and make our product (aka, this website) as clearly as possible in order for our audiences (you) to understand.

Here is my latest version 🙂

Why Are We Here?

We exist to help you find the best software and web tools to solve daily tech problems, saving yourself time and energy.

Yep, that’s our mission!

The Internet is a powerhouse. According to Global Internet Usage (Wikipedia):

As of June 2017, 51% of the world’s population has internet access. In 2015, the International Telecommunication Union estimated about 3.2 billion people, or almost half of the world’s population, would be online by the end of the year.

The Internet has become the go-to place to search for information and solutions. Unfortunately, it’s still often a hit or miss to find a good solution that works. This is especially true in the computer software industry — with millions of new apps are being developed, as well as thousands of old apps becoming outdated.

What does that mean to you (and us)? It’s hard to find the best programs and tools that work to solve the problem you (and we) are facing. Note though, the best software doesn’t have to be the newest one.

That’s why we wanted to start up a website like this — to help you find the best SaaS products that work and to provide you with easy to follow guides or tutorials which save you time exploring.

Even if you are not a tech-savvy person, you can become one (or pretend to be) as long as you follow our step-by-step guide.

What’s Our Approach?

We try, test, research, review, and recommend only the best stuff so you can find exactly what you are looking for.

Who wants to spend hours running a data recovery software simply to retrieve an accidentally deleted photo?

Who wants to spend a few thousand dollars for a new Mac, if you know the best solution is actually replacing the hard drive of your old MacBook Pro with a new solid-state drive (SSD)?

Your time is precious! It’s better to spend them on something else something important, instead of sitting in front of your computer and scratching your head.

Our goal to bring a plain and transparent approach to the editorial content, be it a piece of review or a how-to guide that solves a specific problem.

How to Support Us?

If you find some of our articles useful, there are several ways you can do to help sustain this website and motivate us to create more useful content:

  • If you are an online shopper, we recommend Amazon for purchasing goods especially computer electronics.
  • If you are a social media user, we’d appreciate it if you can share out our articles as this may help others who are facing the same problems as you did.
  • If you are a blogger or site owner, add a link to us as it’ll help more people discover our content.
  • If you are ready to buy a software or web tool, visit our reviews section because we earn affiliate commissions that support our work.

Who Are We?

Ah…finally, you are still reading. They say people like scanning on the web and following the F-shaped pattern, according to a research by Nielsen Norman Group. So, thank you! 🙂

We only cover topics and issues we’ve personally encountered (and you might too), so you save time exploring because we’ll tell you how to fix this or that in an easy-to-follow manner.
