Easy answer:  Try them!  Most APRS programs will let you try them
before you buy, some are free to begin with.

I saw a fairly complete answer w.r.t. Xastir, so I won't duplicate
any of that here.  It's what I use as well.

See the below link and click on "APRS Client Capabilities Chart"
link on the left for a very complete list of features across the
clients.  Go to the bottom and you'll find links to the homepage for
each client to download.
