From Uptodown's main interface for Android, you'll get daily features and news on groundbreaking Android apps along with major updates. Browse any of the available Android categories: video games, messenger apps, video players, office software, etc. No matter which free Android app you're looking for, you'll find it here.

Uptodown has thousands of APKs. Now you can access previous versions of most apps. Plus, you'll find games and tools that aren't on Google Play. That means you can install older (and possibly more stable) versions of practically any app. All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of any file description to see all its available versions.

Thanks to this feature, Uptodown Android lets you install rollbacks for any app on your phone. For example, let's say you just updated Facebook to its latest version, but you're unhappy with it. No problem. You can just replace it with an earlier version from its file on Uptodown.

Uptodown Android is a unique alternative to app stores like Google Play. Not only can you download thousands of different free apps, but you'll also get instant access to older versions of any app. Plus, Uptodown only displays neutral content rather than the promo descriptions and media files where developers try to sell you on their apps. Thanks to our honest, straightforward reviews, you'll be in the know about any app at a glance, so you know exactly what you're downloading.

This complicates installation by APK files, which are the native format for the installation of Android apps that we use at Uptodown, since these additional files need to be placed in a specific place on your device manually. To solve this problem we've updated our official app, which is now able to install these file packages automatically. Here we explain how.
