Ubiquitous Player: Free Multimedia Player for Windows 10/8/7

  1. In addition to sending us to the download pages of the apps you recommend, please also give us a link to the app’s maker’s website so we can read what the app’s maker writes about the app, too.

    By sending us straight to, in this case Softpedia, yes, we can download it; but then in order to get to the app maker’s website, we must click on its name on the Softpedia page, which then takes us to all the apps that that maker has on softpedia, from which page we may then finally click on a link to the app maker’s actual website. Oy! That’s too much work.

    Please always include a link to the app maker’s website, too. It’s not only about downloading. Sometimes we need to read more than your review and opinion. Sometimes we need to see the app maker’s site, which can also help those of us who’ve been around and are very experienced a hint as to how the app maker thinks and what are his/her standards.

    It also allows my copy of McAfee Site Advisor to tell me if there’s anything bad on the app maker’s site, which can also help me to judge whether or not I’d want anything written by him/her on my machine.

    There are, then, numerous reasons to not keep us from being able to get to the app maker’s website, even if where one downloads his/her apps is from such as Softpedia or Downloads-dot-com, etc.

    Thanks!

    Nice article, by the way.

  2. And, oh, yeah… one more thing… regarding the app…

    FROM ITS MAKER’s WEBSITE: Portable music player, image viewer, file manager, and more.

    MY RESPONSE: As if anyone would ever want all those capabilities mixed-up into one app.

    That said, the fact that it’s portable could conceivably make it something someone would want to have on one’s USB flash drive in one’s pocket or on one’s keychain.

    Additionally, you wrote: Ubiquitous Player is a free multimedia player for Windows 8 | 7.

    MY RESPONSE: Once again, as is becoming normative for this site, that is inaccurate. It says, right on the app’s download page, that it’s for “Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP SP3 and their server counterparts”…

    …and so you’re basically saying to all your Vista and XP users that they’re, in effect, not welcome here; that this site’s not really for them. That’s what intentionally leaving-out of your sentence *ALL* fo the OS versions on which the app will run, says. That’s the part you just don’t seem to get. You can eschew my ongoing argument that it’s just plain bad journalism all you want; but what you seem to be saying to Vista and XP users is that they’re not welcome here. And that’s snobbery and elitism and contrary to what even Microsoft would want.

    Plus, isn’t the whole POINT of a website to drive readers to it? What you’re doing drives them away. That can’t POSSIBLY be what Anand has in mind for this place.
