Phew! Thank God, the winter is finally over, and instead of cold and cloudy days there is bright spring sunshine outside. What more can improve the already good mood? – Of course the bunch of new incredible features making the General World services even more useful. Sit back, we’ve prepared a lot of goodies and can’t wait to share them with you.

Spring

Let's start with the most important – welcome the new 5.6 version of General Downloader app. Recently we got a lot of reports from our users with complaints that due to unstable work of mobile Internet, the downloading through the app quite often breaks somewhere in the middle. In version 5.6 we added a mechanism of automatic retries for server requests. Now you’ve got much more chances to have your files downloaded successfully even if your mobile internet is not as good as you would like it to be.

Plus, thanks to your reports we’ve found and fixed a few bugs, including irritating one with file downloading, so now the app works more stably and even more faster.

We’ve decided to add more information into your news feed on General Community. Now you can find there not only latest news about search requests, last downloads and comments made by your friends on General Files, but also information about their activities on all our services, including General Community, General Play, General Torrents and General Catalog. Make new friends and share by common interests with your mates.

General Play

Next news is about one of our best search projects – General Play. General Play is truly useful search service for mobile apps with extended opportunities for search customization and other useful features, including special Price Alerts system helping to always be aware of prices for your favorite apps. Upon your requests we’ve also added a simple alerts mechanism like in General Files. So now you may subscribe for alert and you’ll be definitely informed if the app you need appears on General Play database.

The functionality of alerts on both projects has been also improved. Now after creating of new alert, a notification will be sent to your Email (for authorized users only). Plus, from now you are able not only to create new alert, but also to edit the old ones. It’s quite convenient if you want to change something in alert term.

General Play by itself keeps growing rapidly. We added tons of new apps to download and the whole hill of appmarkets, including WindowsPhone, Blackberry, Bada, Symbian, Windows Mobile, j2me and many others. So don’t waste time, go there quickly!)

General Files

The latest news should also be interested for those who like mobile apps and themes. Finally, we’ve expanded description capabilities for apk, ipa and jar files. So now you can learn more about such files before downloading them from the General Files. Moreover, the file descriptions are involved in the Search engine, so it will also increase the possibility to find the exact file you wanted, because there will be stored more original information about the file in General Files database.

In conclusion traditionally we would like to say Thanks to all members of General Community for your fresh ideas and opinions about our work. This information is very useful, because it helps making right decisions about further development of General World services, so that they could become truly useful tools for searching and downloading files in the hands of our users.
