Uptodown APK Download Widget

Description

This responsive widget allows your users to access and download APKs easily from different sources (Google Play and Uptodown). It’s ready to use as a WordPress widget via shortcode along with the Package Name for the App.

Uptodown is a major marketplace across the globe. Our objective is to offer all our content to users as quickly and comfortably as possible. We’re not the only ones out there. Google Play is the largest app store in the world. But, we aren’t a store. Taking over where they’re missing out, we offer a different service by supplying users with APK downloads for their apps. Along with these advantages we also provide: installs for obsolete versions of apps, safer back ups, and fewer or no hardware restrictions, etc.

Installation

Using our plugin is easy, just install it, activate and use the short code to add detailed information to your post about any Android App.

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Inserting our widget onto any part of your blog post or page is as easy as typing in the following code anywhere within your text (you can also directly paste it when editing)

[utd-widget packagename=’package name prefix’]

Our plugin detects your WordPress language and delivers the widget automatically into your own language (if available).

Great!

I needed a way to offer Android downloads from my blog. Especially useful when the app is not available on Google Play!
