Softpedia is a website that indexes information and provides primarily software information and downloads. Its main sections are Windows, Mac, Mac PPC, Linux, Games, Handheld (mobile software), Drivers, Mobile and News. It also covers technology, science, health and entertainment topics from both external and in-house sources, and it provides software and game reviews.
It was the first site that scanned its listed software for viruses and malware, which is now a common practice. It was also one of the first software sites to clearly mark ad-supported software in its listings. Wherever possible, it includes one or more screenshots of each application, often showing the application's menus to help illustrate its features. Softpedia does not repack software for distribution. It provides direct downloads of software in its original distribution form, links to developers' downloads, or both.
