The long wait is over. The much-awaited iPhone has finally debuted last June 29, 2007. Along with its release, however, are the many free download websites that sprouted like mushrooms. More often than not, they carry copyrighted materials, which are in direct violation to copyright laws. Others require some membership fees, and yet prove to be excellent option for iTunes. How can you decide? Here are some of the tips to help you where to download cool iPhone stuff.
Go for those that offer variety.
There are a lot of music and videos that you can upload or play in your iPhone as long as they are in their iPhone-compatible formats. And as a user, you don’t want to be limited with your choices. You want to select as many music and videos as possible, provided that they aren’t infringed. The same goes for its media. As much as possible, the site must offer music, movies, games, software, and even TV shows. It’s like shopping in one site. It’s more convenient that way.
Settle for a one-time fee instead.
A $0.99 charge per download may be insubstantial. However, if you are a total music and video freak, then it will cost you a fortune. You can practically save more dimes if you simply pay for a one-time fee.
The website must be easy to navigate.
Website design doesn’t matter really. The meat must be its convenient navigation. This is necessary if you’re looking for so many files. Thus, the site should have its own Advanced Search tab to facilitate easy searching. This may not be accessible if you aren’t a member of the download site, but by simply browsing the webpage or checking its FAQ portion, you’ll have an idea about it.
It should offer files compatible to your iPhone. Non-compatible music and videos are useless. A good website, however, must be able to provide you with free software that you can download as well as a converter so you can correct their formats.
The site should be secured.
With this, it means you have to ensure that there are no spyware, virus, or adware that comes along with your every download. The best sites are those that provide proper screening of all files before they are downloaded into your PC. As backup, however, download a reputable scanning software. Sometimes some of them can still get through your system and, worse, into your phone.
It should have a clear payment processing system.
You don’t want any confidential information being used by someone else, do you? So make sure that you are only buying and downloading files from sites with trusted and secured payment systems such as Paypal or Clickbank.
You can better enjoy iPhone with some music and videos to entertain you. Nevertheless, this should only come from a site that offers you the best kind of customer service and files.
