Uptodown is not only an app marketplace, it’s also an enormous body of knowledge. Our content team actively looks for new apps to add to the Uptodown catalog at all times. We make sure to publish the latest available version of each app and, most importantly, include a unique review accompanied by our own screenshots and videos to make sure everyone can find everything they need to know about each app.
Although we try to contact most of the developers of these apps when they are added to Uptodown, sometimes we’re unable to do so at the time of publication, as we also use some automated systems to discover and select new apps. Since our goal is to collaborate with software creators and make sure their products get the widest possible exposure, we are completely open for them to take advantage of this window to the world.
In these cases, the best way for studios to trust us and see the advantages we provide is by understanding the legitimacy of our business model. You can find more information about everything we offer in our Developer Console, our internal publishing platform where hundreds of established studios already publish their apps.
We are legally protected (you can take a look at our terms and conditions) and we always stay within this framework. That’s why we offer all developers the possibility to claim authorship of the URL associated with their app where we publish all the information created by our editors. This allows creators to have full control over the release of new updates, as well as to consult download statistics and have the assistance of our support team. Of course, all these services are completely free of charge. Likewise, if the author or rights holder of an app does not want it to be published on Uptodown, he/she can send us a DMCA request for its removal through our contact form, which we will resolve as soon as possible.
Five reasons to collaborate with us
- All the apps we publish are original and are never externally modified in any way. Each file is analyzed by more than 70 antiviruses using the VirusTotal service and we offer the signature, package name and other additional data to verify its authenticity.
Both the published files and all text and graphic content are created by our own editors. An anonymous person cannot publish on Uptodown pretending to be the creator of an app.
We have more than 130 million monthly active users, making us a huge leading showcase for mobile app distribution.
Given our open and non-restrictive nature, we are SEO leaders, offering the possibility to download apps directly from a web browser. If an app exists, it is probably on Uptodown and you will find it in the first results on your search engine.
More than 75,000 app developers already trust us.
How to monetize an app available on Uptodown
If your app includes ads, the profits generated will go entirely to the developer.
If your app is developed with Unity, you can integrate Unity Distribution Portal into your in-app purchasing system, where Uptodown is one of the marketplaces associated with the service.
If you use other payment systems (such as Google Pay) for in-app purchases, the user will have to have Google Play Services and, likewise, all profits will go entirely to the developer.
In addition to all this, we have our own promotional spaces on Uptodown, so you can generate placements or app installations through our own internal network of online advertisements. You can write to our marketing team from our contact form to receive more information. We also work with other alternative monetization systems such as affiliates.
