Download Central

Advantagesfree, quick, easy to use

Disadvantagesno user rating, search always takes you to main site

"What is Tucows? A huge archive of freeware, shareware and demo software, all of which can be downloaded from this one website. Tucows also reviews the software by giving it a brief overview and a rating between one and five cows. So what? Well rather than go out and spend hundreds of pounds on the latest software apps, there is normally a free product that does the same thing on Tucows. It also saves searching around the web for software; just ..." Read review

The Ultimate Collection of Windows Software

AdvantagesYou can get all the software you need here

DisadvantagesNothing

"There are many sites that offer shareware and freeware , but TUCOWS is one of the granddaddies of them all. It has been around since I've been using the web and lives up to it's contrived acronymic name (The Ultimate Collection Of Windows Software). ~~Where is It? www.tucows.com , but there are many mirrors throughout the world, so wherever you are based you will be directed to a local site that will provide you with fast downloads. ~~ What ..."

Moo, moo... Two Cows Does It Again...

Advantagesgood range of downloads

Disadvantagesnavigation a little strange

"...and don't read on. Tucows.com as you might think, well I thought it anyway!, about Cows, damn shame, it is actually an internet download resource centre much like Download.com (provided by CNET). In many ways this is a very similar site, apart from the fact that it has cows in its logo, cool! ~~What can you Download?~~ This is a good question to ask, for a short answer you can download a load of software! For a longer, more in depth answer please ..." Read review

Mirror mirror on the wall

AdvantagesFast site lots of mirrors, Great web design

DisadvantagesNo Drivers

"Well my first experiences of Tucows.com was very good, very good indeed. They certainly know how to look after the general net user. I would not say that this site was for total beginners but for anyone with even slight net knowledge will find this site more than usefull. This site has everything you would expect from a download site. It has shareware, tools, utilities and themes. everything the more "major" download sites have. I have not yet ..." Read review

Tucows, Limited Exellence

AdvantagesVery fast searh and download

DisadvantagesLittle in the way of "homegrown" software

"Tucows is a great search engine for finding downloads that companys have but samples or freeware software on so the general public can compare different software. I tried using after a had a few recomendations for tucows from freinds who said it was good. Although the layout is very easy to use, and it allows you to choose your download server making the system faster i have found that the range of amateur software available is limited, and with it ..."

El Lando De Download

AdvantagesAlways what you want.

DisadvantagesNot that big yet.

" At this Magical website you can download most anything you want. Apart from Mp3's which is slightly annoying. But the software is nearly un-limitless. The Reason that this download site is better than most others is that most of the stuff you want to download, such as programs, games etc. Comes from a place near you, instead of the other side of the world. For example if you live in Manchester like I do, there will be a mirror(A site that you ..." Read review

Easy stop over for most of the software you'll need

Advantagesloads of stuff to find here

Disadvantagesmight not be able to find what you want exactly

"this site is great for all sorts of stuff, there are utilities, editing tools, games and much more. what i like about this site is that there are plenty of mirrors around the world, thus, u cut down your download time by choosing a site nearer to you. also, the sites are frequently updated and you can always find the things that you want (not necessarily what you wanted in the 1st place tho) I use this site mainly for games as well as free themes ..."

Too much to mention

AdvantagesA lot to offer

Disadvantagesnone

"http://www.tucows.com Tucows is a massive archive of Shareware, Demos and Freeware. All the software is categorised and the site is easy to navigate. The download speeds from the site are good and the site itself is fast. Their database is constantly updated so you will not miss out on the latest offerings. The idea of using Shareware and Demos is of great benefit if you are looking for a specific program to buy but are worried that it will ..." Read review

Excellent selection and easy to use

AdvantagesExcellent content, well set out and easy to use.

DisadvantagesNONE

"Tucows.com is an excellent software downloads site. It offers you a massive selection of shareware, freeware and demo computer programs. I use this site all the time for getting music tools, site building tools and generally any kind of program I can think of. The site is well designed and easy to navigate either by choosing you category (e.g. Audio) and going from there or to be more specific use the search engine. I also find that the rating system ..."

You could stay here until the cows come home

Advantagesfree to use, quick, huge range of software

Disadvantagesnone

"This is one of the most useful sites that has ever been uploaded onto the net. Tucows (for those that have never been there) is a site devoted to freeware (software you never have to pay for) and shareware (software you get free for a period of time, and then you have to pay a fee if you want to continue using). The site operates very much as a portal, and offers software for most if not all operating systems. You can either do a search for ..." Read review

Good Site

AdvantagesFast dload speeds, massive range of software

DisadvantagesHave to select which download site to use

"Tucows.com is the first site I check for downloads as it has thousands of programs, and there are so many affiliate sites that the download speed is always fairly high. It is packed with shareware, so you only have to pay for the download time (if that) and also there is a massive range of commercial programs… One disadvantage of this site is that you have to select which site you want to download from, which is a bit tedious, but you can select the ..."

THE Site for Internet Downloads

AdvantagesVast archive, local mirrors

DisadvantagesLots of adverts but I suppose we have to live with them.

"If you need some Internet software there is in my opinion no better place to start looking than Tucows. The software archive is vast and covers just about any Internet application you might need but that is not where Tucows strength lies. The main benefit of downloading from Tucows is it's International Mirror network. This is a great number of ISPs and Companies world wide who keep a copy of the Tucows archive on their own networks. For the user ..." Read review
