Wapdam is a mobile web portal that supports old mobile devices and offers videos, music, and games for download to your phone and other devices. Which is great for freebie hunters, but not quite for intellectual property rights owners.
Imagine a web portal that provides mobile apps, games, video, and music content for download. It is visited by people from all walks of life and from all over the globe. That is a picture of Wapdam. We explore the factors that are behind the site’s popularity and evolution. Come along for the fascinating story.
The Wapdam website is a content-sharing portal that offers videos, mobile games, music, and mobile application downloads. There are actually a lot of clones that begin with “Wap”, like Waptrick, Wapday, Wapking, etc. These sites were the rage a few years ago, especially with users of S40 and S60 devices.
These websites have a staggering amount of free items and downloadable content that are automatically programmed to work on your phone. This means that no matter what device you visit it with, you would find the content exactly the way it would be on your device. You wouldn’t have to convert anything.
That is great for mobile usability, and it is easy to see how the site has grown in leaps and bounds. Of course, being that it also offers free video and audio content is a key factor in its popularity.
There is a horde of mobile users on cheap internet-enabled phones and affordable Chinese smartphones (non-Chinese smartphones still abound but get fewer with each passing year) who are constantly on the search for free content, and Wapdan caters well to them. The fact that it is friendly towards old and cheap mobile devices.

What Happened To Wapdam?
The thing is, these days, Wapdam and its clones appear to have dropped out of reckoning in the country. I am not saying that people do not visit it at all. However, when people talk about sites they visit to download stuff today, almost no one mentions Wapdam any more.
Update: Attempts to visit the site keeps now redirects to Waptrick.one. It seems that, in the face of pressure from intellectual property rights campaigns, Wapdam has re-branded to Waptrick.
Currently, though, the content on these sites seem to have dropped off a bit. For example, try as you may, the chances of getting Wapdam high-HD videos are pretty low. We are guessing that may have to do with intellectual property issues. Property rights owners are fighting back hard these days, and Wapdam might suffer the same fate that MP3skull did.
Wapdan, Waptrick and others
Not a lot of people in this digital age think there is a problem downloading free versions of digital media. Plus, the content on the sites are generally lightweight and so are not massively data-consuming. Actually, the site itself is designed to accomodate old mobile device browsers.
For example, you can get a decent-sounding music file from Waptrick for less than 10 MB. A key attraction is the fact that one gets good music from these sites without much hassle. But after listening to high-quality music from other sites, you might be tempted away from Waptrick and company.
Still, Wapdam, Waptrick and its other clones, were once the place to go for basically any downloadable mobile content.
The search for free multimedia content is driven by the same economic circumstances that make buying smartphones on an instalment plan attractive. It does not look like it will wane any time soon. If you are in search for free video content, we have done some legwork for you.
