About Us

Welcome to Download Shah, your top destination for software, tech news, how-tos, and more! We are a team of tech enthusiasts who aim to share the latest and most useful resources we can find on software, computing, gadgets, and emerging technologies.

Our blog was founded in 2013 by Mr. S.H. Shah, a long-time IT professional and self-proclaimed tech geek. We started the blog as a way to share cool new software, apps, and tech we discovered with our friends and family. As it evolved, we realized the information we researched and shared was helping a lot more people than just those in our inner circle. So we made it official and Download Shah was born!

We pride ourselves on scouring the vast landscape of the internet to uncover that diamond-in-the-rough kind of software tools, apps, and tech innovations that tend to fly under the radar but can make a real difference in people’s digital lives. We share our honest, unbiased reviews on the latest software, focusing on free and freemium tools for individuals and small business owners looking to optimize their workflows and boost productivity.

Here’s a bit more detail about what you can expect from the different sections of our blog:

Software Reviews: From Evernote alternatives to budget dashboards to GTD apps, we share hands-on reviews of productivity and business software for various needs and use cases. We focus primarily on free and affordable options suitable for solopreneurs, freelancers, and bootstrappers.

Tech News & Emerging Tech: You can rely on us to keep our finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the world of consumer tech and cutting-edge innovations. We report on the latest gadgets, gizmos, product launches, and technology breakthroughs you should have on your radar.

How-tos & Tutorials: Many of the software and services we try out involve learning curves for effective use. That’s why we create straightforward how-to guides and video tutorials walking through setup, key features, and optimum workflows to help you hit the ground running.

Downloads: For the tools we highly recommend, we provide download links and instructions so you can easily add them to your personal or professional tech stack and see for yourself how they can aid your productivity.
