We almost certainly don’t need to introduce you to El Androide Libre, in terms of media impact perhaps the number-one Spanish-language blog on all things Android. As of December of last year, we at Uptodown have begun to work together with them by linking our catalogue of more than 17,000 apps in their articles, thereby offering an alternative to Google Play links to allow users to freely download apps in APK format from our servers.
El Androide Libre, with its more than two million unique users each month, is a point of reference for info on current Android news and trends, making it an ideal partner for a two-way collaboration that also allows Uptodown visitors to make use of this enormous source of content. Now, every app page on Uptodown will display related links from El Androide Libre along with those that already appeared from our own blog.
The advantages of offering our links on their blog are enormous, both for us and for visitors: in many cases we offer new apps and updates long before Google Play, in addition to providing content that that market won’t accept due to its distribution policies. Also – and we never get tired of saying it – all our files are analyzed by more than 50 different antiviruses through the VirusTotal service, offering custom results reports for every single app. Likewise, and in the particular case of Android (as Uptodown offers a multiplatform catalog), the signature associated with the app is checked for veracity and reliability.
This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
