Things to consider when buying software
Software is designed to work with a specific operating system. You should always check that you’re buying the right version for your device, be it Windows, OS X or a mobile operating system.
We list the compatibility for each product, so it’s easy to find the right one.
Software features a set of requirements your computer or device must meet in order to run it correctly. We list the minimum requirements on the product page, with many being little more than an up-to-date of version of Windows or OS X. However, be careful with design and creative software, as they tend to have much higher requirements.
While most software can used by anyone with a little practice, some specialised programs require more experience or knowledge of the subject matter. You can read the product description to get a general idea of the level required, but a reliable rule is the more expensive the software, the more in-depth it goes.
Software comes with a variety of different licences, so it’s important you choose the right one. Security and anti-virus software typically needs to be renewed once a year, while other software can be purchased on automatic yearly renewal or with lifetime licences.
