PROS / This site has a smaller selection of software than most, so it is not very cluttered.

CONS / The site has limited search options.

 VERDICT / We recommend this site for its adequate selection of software.

FileGuru.com, like most download sites, collects software from developers and makes it available for download. Some software is free, some is free to try and some applications are available for purchase. This software download site has applications for most operating systems, including mobile devices. However, this download website does not have as many options as some other similar sites, and the advanced search options are extremely limited.

Software Categories

FileGuru.com has an adequate selection of software for you to browse. The software download site has a variety of downloads, including security applications, games and even web development tools. The site has applications for all different types of operating systems and devices, including the following:

  • Windows
  • Mac
  • Linux
  • iPad
  • BlackBerry
  • Android

Some of the software is free, some is free to try and some is only available for purchase. The site collects these software submissions from developers. Each application is tested for viruses and any other security threats. Also, the selection of software is much smaller on this site than many other similar websites.

Site Organization

The main site search bar is the best and quickest way to find what you’re looking for. The search returns results for keywords, product names and operating system searches. However, there are no advanced search options available with this download website. You cannot search for software specific to an operating system, such as video editing software for Macs. This makes finding the application you need much slower. The site also does not have very many browsing options. You can't browse by operating system or by the most popular software downloads. Unless you know the exact name of the application, this site is difficult to navigate.

Other software download sites have editor and user reviews to aid you in your search for the best applications. FileGuru.com does not have any reviews or rankings by other users or editors of the site. These reviews often serve as a forum for users to interact and problem-solve.


We performed several tests on this software download site and did not encounter any issues. However, we did find numerous reports of dangerous downloads posted on this site. We urge caution when using this, or any other, download website. The lack of user reviews also makes it difficult to identify potentially dangerous software downloads. Also, some of the ads on this site appear to be downloads, but if you click on the ads, you will be taken to other sites. Some of these sites could potentially have security threats.

Help & Support

The software download website manages an email address you can contact in order to reach the customer service team. We tried sending several different questions on multiple occasions, but we never received a response. There are no telephone numbers, sections of frequently asked questions or user forums.


FileGuru.com is uncluttered and has freeware, trialware and retail software downloads for all different types of operating systems and devices. The site is difficult to navigate because it doesn’t have any advanced search options. Also, there are no user or editor rankings or reviews.
