Uptodown has an enormous catalogue of programs, each with a corresponding product description.

Though several solutions have come out, the WannaCry ransomware that recently infected computers worldwide continues to wreak havoc. If you haven’t updated to the latest version of Windows 10 and have no real-time firewall you’re still in danger of infection. The free tool Wanakiwi is one of the few solutions that can recover your encrypted files, though the conditions to do so are a bit restrictive.

The SNK studio and Neo Geo will forever be associated with The King of Fighters, that annual saga where characters from the biggest fighting games would face off. While these days SNK Playmore has little to do with the its old self from the 90s, they still keep wringing profit out of their old glories in random ways. Their latest – at least in the West – is The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Online, a sort of RPG with turn-based fighting where you face a huge roster from one of the best editions of the saga.

The sequel to the game with one of the most original plots you can find is now free. Knights of Pen and Paper 2 was released two years ago on Android and it’s recently become free to all players. This change has given the game new life – enjoy it today with us here at Uptodown.

The popularity of Overwatch seems neverending. And with good reason: we’re talking about one of the best titles out there on most gaming platforms. This hit from Blizzard has a cast of characters as personable as they are memorable and is one of the most played titles with one of the most active user communities. With that in mind, we’ve put together this list of free Android apps that serve as the perfect complements to Overwatch.

Google’s Android Device Manager service is one of the most useful tools for finding your device in case of loss or theft. While it was definitely efficient, its interface seemed very elaborate given the small number of tasks it actually carried out. They’ve finally done something about this problem and have just released a revamped version of the service that has even gotten a change of name: now the app is called Find My Device.

With a bit of imagination, pretty much any sport can be translated more or less deftly to the world of videogaming. That’s exactly what the studio From the Bench has done with its latest game: Top Stars Football is a trading card game with online faceoffs against other players that, surprising as it seems, meshes perfectly with the development of a soccer game.

To think about shoot ’em up games is to think about pain. About hundreds of projectiles zooming toward your ship and taking you inexorably nearer the Game Over screen. Fans of the genre end up developing some truly stunning reflexes – particularly for games built on a vertical screen. But people less adept in the art of the dodge are in luck with SkyChampa frenetic but much lighter shmup inspired by an unconventional source for games of this style: Pokémon.

The global cyberattack of this past weekend has infected thousands of users’ machines with so-called ransomware. It involves a process by which the attacker infects data stored on the device and encrypts it, blocking access until a monetary ransom is paid to recover it. Though this kind of malware has so far only appeared on desktop computers, the Android platform is still susceptible to infection by ever more common attacks.

Amateur online espionage and keeping tabs of your contacts’ every move on social networks has become many people’s obsession. WhatsApp statuses and everything related to double-checks, connection times, and the visibility of the disappearing posts are all recurring issues in this respect, though – exaggerated as it may sound – these may not even cover all bases for some people. For them, there’s the Whatscope app, which can spy on any phone number of your choice and create a log of that person’s connection times. It can even send notifications when a person opens WhatsApp.

Developers seem to be clueing in on the fact that users like using their smartphones with one hand. Tricky as this seems on hardware with giant 5.5-inch screens, software can provide solutions so you’re not obliged to break out both thumbs. Radial menus are a popular option for this, and in the case of Swiftly Switch you can kill several birds with one stone as its pullout side menu includes your virtual buttons plus your app shortcuts in one place.
