This is a classic free and shareware download site offering other vendors' software with or without a download manager. Although it presents as a playground, be warned that the software you get may be buggy, outdated, malicious, and/or bundled with very much unwanted third-party add-ons. Always get your software from the original vendor or its designated distributor. Free download sites are recipes for trouble, as you can discover by visiting the support forums of the original vendors.

Among software download sites, this one is probably in the top list. I like their good interface, and absence of aggressive advertising.
While many competitors in the software download area are experiencing difficulties nowadays with attracting visitors, the Softpedia it seems finds their own way to stay alive.
Being a software developer, I several times needed special support from them. It sometimes wasn't easy, but finally i got almost all I wanted.
One of their drawback though is that, once creating a software description and giving it the rating, they almost never change them again even if the software was changed drastically.

Softpedia is a large library for a wide range of software for Win, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. What is great about Softpedia is the tests and reviews for software products. You can identify those safe-to-use software programs by the sign "100% clean". You can find detailed information about the functionalities and performance of the software. Everything Softpedia team members do aims to help you decide whether to try the software or not. Needless to say, if you a developer, Softpedia is a great software publishing platform you can't miss.

Good information and good software from long time ago.
Review by Erlandas Tiszler3 years ago
Although generally a good site for downloads Softpedia has a large amount of software that either does not work well or is known to be fake-ware and reports false problems and viruses and demands money to fix.

Tried uninstall and reinstall FN key which stop working in Win. 10 on my Toshiba laptop. Used Softpedia to download the new FN key software. Installed fine but FN key still doesn't work. But my experience with Softpedia was good. Due to comments on SiteJabber reviews I ran my virus and malware scanner after downloading the software and found no problems.

Softpedia is the best of one of a few safe websites for locating and downloading freeware and shareware applications. What really impresses me is Softpedia provides the links, mirrors and files wth no wrappers containing PuP's (potentialy unwanted and/or malicious programs). When you download a file from Softpedia you can be assured you are not recieving any other uneccesary programs in the process.
I found Softpedia after C/Net's Download.com began forcing software developers to accept their proprietary wrappers, but that's another review. Softpedia is a breeze to use being one of the most user friendly websites of it's kind on the internet. The navigation is graphically based and is as easy to use as any modern day operating system. Kudos to Softpedia for usability and honesty!

This site contains fake downloads for all softwares and drivers. No matter what exe title you see, what you're actually downloading is an ad generator exe that not only generates ads but it's very difficult to uninstall due to the speed it creates them! Be aware!!! Stay away!!
Any real work we do to make games and things for Softpedia to use, they treat it like it was garbage, thinking 3 months straight of work is "rushed" when they probably don't even know about the origin of the game itself since they think their so great. They think they can insult the artist of they think it's bad, even though it takes a long time to draw the characters and whatnot, and they are both anatomically correct and very detailed. Hard work is nothing to them. Also, don't download crap for them, you'll get tons of viruses and malware up the butt.

Review by Terease Derrow4 years ago
I have had nothing much other than bad luck with Softpedia dot com. Real one, for Windows 6.5 Mobile had a virus. Supposedly, it could only be installed after it was "extracted" on the desktop. It would install a "Real 1" logo icon on the phone and the desktop, but no working media player. Instead, it installed a virus that was able to use my emails to mass mail all of my contacts and, had stolen all of my saved passwords and debit card info and sent that to an email dump. This most recent time it was a downloaded free game app for windows, "Air Strike 3D," which is packing a variant of the Zeus trojan.
It is a garbage site you really need to stay away from. I mean, if they lie and say they virus scan the apps they offer for downloading, where are these real viruses I have gotten from these apps coming from?
It is an untrustworthy site. Downloader be warned!
If you want safe downloads go to C-net's Downloads dot com; I have never had problems with their site.

It's a good site that's mostly legitimate, but has a tendency to install PUP's even if the checkboxes are unticked

"All files are original, not repacked or modified in any way by us. Secure downloads are files hosted and checked by Softpedia."
YES. GOOD. I hate sites that have those stupid downloader adware applications.
