    Wrestling with RIAA and New software catalog!

    Good day dear users of General World services. For today we have good and bad news for you. With which should we start? With bad? Well, ok.

    Unfortunately, due to copyright issues with The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the free version of General Downloader was removed from Google Play. Here is the essence of RIAA complaint quoted from their mail:

    „The clear purpose of these applications is to facilitate the unauthorized streaming and downloading of popular sound recordings, the vast majority of which are owned or controlled by RIAA members.“


    Of course, we completely disagree with this statement. First of all, General Downloader is a search engine, oriented to files on public domain, which were voluntarily shared by users in the Internet.

    We greatly honor the intellectual properties and adhere strictly to the DMCA copyright law. Within our application, and our web-site, we provide an opportunity to send a DMCA complaint to any file detected by our search engine, and listed in search results. The reports about copyright violations are processed every hour, and corresponding links to files are being immediately removed from search results.

    The General Downloader engine searches among more than 900 millions of files, and the proportion of sound recordings is less than 10%.

    We care about over 600 000+ users of General Downloader, who appreciate our work. The app was published in Google Play Store more than a year ago, and we've spent a lot of efforts to build it user-friendly and earn the high appraisal of our audience.

    Finally, our main aim is to give users a convenient tool to navigate through the variety of files all over Internet, and let them find the files they need, freely shared in web by other users, in full accordance with copyright laws.

    Currently we are not sure that purchasing of donate version works correctly as well. For some reason we still can't contact the RIAA to settle the matter, but don’t worry, you can always download mobile and desktop version of General Downloader from it’s official website - GeneralDownloader.com

    Well, it’s enough about bad things. Summer months, in spite of the holiday season, turned out to be pretty productive for new incredible features!

    What’s new in General Downloader?

    General Downloader for desktop

    Finally we released the long awaited update for GD desktop. We made a lot of work on the bugs. Thanks to your reports we were able to improve significantly stability of the system. Despite the fact that visually GD has got minor changes, the software part has undergone a considerable refinement, and GD for desktop now works even faster and more stable than ever, but don’t take my word for it - check it out!

    What’s new on General Files?

    General Files

    General Files due to technical reasons was moved to a new domain again. Now your favorite search engine inhabits the www.generalfiles.me! Don’t worry, the service remained unchanged. As before, it’s ready to meet any of your search queries and bring your favorite media content with ease!

    But that’s not all news about General Files service for today. We’ve made a big progress on works with meta-data recognition to create special thematic file catalogs.

    If earlier in search results for books and music you could view all available works of the author clicking on special link, like here:

    General Files book catalog

    Now the same way, you can view all relative software available for download. For this simply click to phrase „Maybe you will be interested in all software of …“ and enjoy all the soft of the developer available for download from General Files database.

    Plus, once you are on the Detailed page, play attention to the File Info tab. At the bottom of the page you’ll find an equal item, titled „Other soft by“. Using it, you can easily view all available soft made by the developer and choose anything you like.

    Thus, today our great file database has acquired a huge number of new ties, which further simplifies searching for your favorite media content!

    What’s new on General Community?

    General Community

    Smart Translation service on the General Community, which we discussed in detail in our previous issues, has also undergone significant improvements. We slightly simplified a translation test filling and added a new progress bar, so now the translation process of the General World services into different languages has become more like a fascinating game, than a school test, so don’t waste time and try it out!

    Translation test

    We are very grateful to users who involved in translation of General World services into their native languages. Bdg and YOEL_44, thanks again for real assistance in translation of General Downloader. We hope you enjoy spending 1000 Gpoints granted for your help! Other users, what are you waiting for? We are still willing to encourage the most active of translators by good amount of Gpoints!

    As you can see, despite of some difficulties associated with Copyright, development of the General World projects does not stand still.

    We are not afraid to improvise and to invent new ways for the development of our projects, and it seems that such approach allows us not only to keep afloat, but also to continue creating of useful products. We continue to attach great importance to your reports and suggestions and we look forward to new ideas from you for the development of General World!

    Hi great site and the app was good but it no longer works, but I still get GD on the web but what if my ISP decides to block your website? Also why does your app when downloaded from Mobogenie have an adware program installed that keeps trying to charge me for text messages that it is sending?
