Yippee Hits Number One has hit the number one position for Software sites in New Zealand.

Yippee - which launched last year - is now the most popular source of software downloads in the country according to Hitwise NZ (

"30% of internet users download software- so this is a big achievement for us," says Yippee founder Mark Stuart,

"The popularity of programs such as Napster and MP3 players in this country shows that people are coming to terms with the fact that the future of the internet is free,"

"By offering quality software for free and trial use, as well as educated and honest reviews - Yippee has won out over some major international competition."

Building on their success, Yippee are hoping to launch specialist sites for popular categories such as Audio and Business software. They are also planning to launch a registration service - so people who enjoy their trial software can register it without the bother of visiting another site.

You can find Yippee at or on major ISPs nationwide.
