Uptodown APK Download Widget


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.


How can I get the Package Name of any App

You can access easily to this information on Uptodown.com. Just look for the App and go to “more information” section on its information page. Example: http://whatsapp-messenger.en.uptodown.com/android

Scroll down to: More info -> Package Name

  • SSL/TLS Support. Now the widget will work correctly on https URLs


  • Automatic detection of Apps on your posts. Now, the Uptodown widget is able to add the APK download to any App already linked on your post to Google Play. This feature is compatible with the shortcode +package_name, which will have priority over the automatic app detection.
  • New plugin config page that disables the automatic app detection on your post if needed.


  • First public version
