For mobile phone owners, finding good applications to use can be tiresome. Firstly, you have to ensure that the software is compatible with your particular phone model. In addition, if the application you want is a paid one, you need to scout around to find a suitable freeware alternative.
Phoload makes your search for quality mobile phone applications much easier. In the site’s own words, they are “a community website based on the idea that it should be simple, easy, and fun to discover and download free mobile phone games and applications”.
Downloading any application from Phoload is quite simple. You have an option to select your phone and then view the applications available for it. Alternatively, you can browse through application categories and select the one that appeals to you. Each application is labeled as to whether it’s free, a trial version, ad-supported, etc. While downloading an application, you can either download it to your phone directly or save it to your computer.
Downloading apps isn’t the only thing you can do at Phoload. You can choose to rate and review different applications and thus help out the community. Phoload is also a good place for developers looking for a platform to release their phone applications.
Phoload is still a young site but it is already proving to be a decent resource for mobile phone apps. New software is regularly added to the site. Also, the site’s grouping of applications makes it easy to find what you are looking for.
