About

DownloadWeekly.net is one of the the most comprehensive and useful resources on the Web for MS Windows™ software. The site is a trusted source of information for buyers and sellers of try-before-you-buy software, enabling IS/IT professionals, developers, business users, and personal technology enthusiasts to have a hands-on evaluation of products they are considering for purchase. Containing thousands software titles, DownloadWeekly.net is an established and active marketplace for digital content distribution.

DownloadWeekly.net does not contain the software files themselves but provides downloads from authors’ web sites. Every day dozens of new and updated programs are submitted to our web site and appeared on it after approval. The submission is absolutely free. All the listings are correctly arranged in 14 categories and more than 150 subcategories which are consistent with PAD 2.0 specification that makes both the submission process and the search of needed software by category fast and easy. Also you can search software products by name, company, keywords etc. using our search engine, sort the listings by release date, title, popularity etc.

What makes us special

New take on things
After having observed the online software market for more than a year, noting everything good and not least bad – we have come up with a formular for what works. We have an extensive roadmap for where we want this site to go – and we are determined to reach our goal of making this one of the absolute best download sites available online. We launched our site August 25th 2007 with our first version – with new features added weekly.

Always Up To Date
We have made a system that in many aspects keeps itself up to date to ensure that our users are presented with the latest and most relevant software. But rest assured that all new submissions are approved by human – one by one, to make sure we know exactly what is in our catalog. We currently have over 200 on our blacklist who didn’t meet our expectations.

That little extra for the publishers…
It’s of course completely free for the indevidual publisher to go for this option but we provide a system to see statistics on their various listings, ranking week by week, views, downloads and much more. We’re planning a massive update on this service not just because it helps the developer/publisher but also because it helps us to make a better site.

  1. Detailed Download Stats on all of your products
  2. See All User Reviews including what version
  3. User Comments by version
  4. Request PAD updates
  5. Submit non-PAD software (coming soon)
  6. It’s free.

… and of course that little extra for our users!,
We want to keep a high standard for ourselves – but also for our users. We are users ourselves and therefore we know what is good and bad – at the same time we listen a lot to the input we get. If we receive a request for a feature and we can see it would work for the site we implement it to make it easier for everybody.

A unique approach
We want to be part of forming the future for software online and therefore we have look at how business is done today – and how we can change it tomorrow.

Hall of Shame
Yes, that’s no typo. We want to have un-biased reviews of the programs, so any developer who writes a review of their own program will be delisted from our site only to be put in our hall of shame. We do realize this is a different approach, but we believe it’s the right thing to do in order to assure the overall quality of the site.

Future Plans,
With the very ambitious goal of becoming one of the absolute top sites in downloadable software we have a long road ahead of us, but we know what it takes and we know where we are going.

One thing is for sure – we will never rest on the laurals; We believe it can always be done better! And that is what we strive to do.
