Uptodown Android


All the best free apps you want on your Android





Uptodown's official app is your direct access to full app descriptions, screenshots, and of course, free Android apps. It provides you with an open and immersive experience for the latest updates and versions of any free Android app.

All Content: No Limits on Apps: betting apps, multimedia apps, and competitors from any area.

Any Country: Completely free and open global access without regional restrictions like the limitations put in place by businesses or politics.

Every Device: You don’t need Google Play services to download apps. In fact with Uptodown you can safely download and install any app right from your browser. No matter what your device is.

Every User: No Google registration required, no email accounts or credit card info for any payments. Just you and your apps.

From our main interface on Uptodown Android, you'll get daily featured apps and major Android news, including the latest apps and updates. Below the image of daily news, there is a dropdown menu with shortcuts to all of the available Android categories: video games, messenger apps, video players, office software, etc. No matter which free Android app you’re looking for, it's probably here.

Because Uptodown store has over a thousand different APKs, the app gives you the possibility to access both older versions of some apps and others that are not yet available on Google Play. This means that you have the option to install older (and possibly more stable) versions of practically any app. All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of a file to see all its available versions.

Thanks to this feature, Uptodown Android lets you do ‘rollbacks’ for any app on your phone. For example, let’s say you just updated your Facebook app to its latest version, but you're unhappy with it. No problem. Just replace it with an earlier version from its file on Uptodown and that’s it.

Uptodown Android is a unique alternative to app stores like Google Play because it not only lets you download thousands of different free apps, but it also has older versions for any app. Plus, Uptodown only displays neutral content rather than the self-promotional descriptions and media files where developers try to sell you on their apps. Thanks to our honest, straightforward reviews, you’ll always have major information about any app at a quick glance, so you’ll know exactly what you’re downloading.

Five tips to protect your Android device from malware

The global cyberattack of this past weekend has infected thousands of users' machines with so-called ransomware.
