Everyday I install a new program, freeware or demo. Most of them are useful that I do not want to remove from the application folder since I have no space problem. My problem I have too many programs installed and I forget what I had installed. I need a kind of program that can help me look my programs and sort them in order to their tasks or area. That way I can just open one program to look what I have. It is sort of iTunes for Programs. If anyone knows I will be greatly appriciated. Peace!

I don't know of any program that does that, though it would be helpful.

Whenever I install a new program, I create a safari bookmark in a specific "programs" bookmark folder. That way I have a list of everything I install, in the order in which I installed them.

Not an iTunes-esque solution, but you can tag the applications with Spotlight Comments, either manually or with TagBot/FileSpot/Quicksilver. You could have tags for different categories like &Music, &Graphics, &Photo, etc. Then you can use Spotlight or FileSpot to display them.
