We perform a lot of downloading at Softonic, therefore obviously a decent download manager is vital. Folx for Mac is a free download supervisor and download accelerator that’s ideal for all download needs from basic files to torrents.
Folx download manager for Mac can handle any file size and will download via HTTP, HTTPS and FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL. It supports auto-resuming and most importantly, offers high-speed downloads thanks to ‘multi-threading’, which seeks more than one source for a file. Perhaps what marks Folx out from the crowd is that it allows you to handle torrents, making it more than just your average downloader.
In this simple version, you can send torrents to Folx although if you upgrade to Pro, you can even search for torrents inside Folx itself. Also in the Professional version, to prevent downloads slowing-down your connection, there´s also a handy ‘Auto Speed’ feature which allocates internet traffic more evenly. This is something sorely lacking from most downloaders and would have been interesting to try but unfortunately it’s only available if you upgrade.
There are enough features in the basic version to keep a person more than satisfied, however. You can timetable downloads for a specific time, curriculum vitae them at any time and it even allows you to add tags to downloads just for better organization. However , for all the promises about speed enhancements, I didn’t notice Folx being significantly faster than my standard download supervisor. Also, without the bandwidth control feature in the Pro version either, it may tend to hog your bandwidth too. Overall, Folx does feel a little bloated and overwhelming for a download manager and is probably aimed at ‘power’ downloaders who need maximum control and visibility over that they’re downloading.
However , if you’ve found that your download manager is with a lack of features or badly organized, Folx for Mac may well impress a person.
