Welcome to GetLEET.com, I created this site to help people find free application's (app's) to make their every day computer use easier. Yes all app's posted are simply based on my opinion and there is more free applications available. If you have a free application that you use and would like to share it with others please submit it on the Submit an app page.

The primary goal of this site is not to list every free app out on the web. The goal of the site is to list app's that are the best. For instance there are 100s of free app's out there that will convert a word document to a PDF. However I don't want to list all of them, just a select couple that are what I think to be the best choices.

"Leet, also known as eleet or leetspeak, is an alternative alphabet for the English language that is used primarily on the Internet. It uses various combinations of ASCII characters to replace Latinate letters. For example, leet spellings of the word leet include 1337 and l33t; eleet may be spelled 31337 or 3l33t."
