We do a lot of downloading at Softonic, so obviously a decent download manager is vital. Folx for Mac is a free download manager and download accelerator that’s suitable for all download needs from easy files to torrents.
Folx download manager for Mac pc can handle any file size and will down load via HTTP, HTTPS and FTP. It supports auto-resuming and most significantly, offers high-speed downloads thanks to ‘multi-threading’, which seeks more than one source for any file. Perhaps what marks Folx out from the crowd is that it allows you to deal with torrents, making it more than just your typical downloader.
In this basic version, you can send torrents to Folx although if you upgrade to Pro, you can even search for torrents within Folx itself. Also in the Pro 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 plus 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 you more than satisfied, however. You can timetable downloads for a specific time, continue them at any time and it even allows you to add tags to downloads with regard to better organization. However , for all the statements about speed enhancements, I didn’t notice Folx being significantly quicker than my standard download supervisor. Also, without the bandwidth control function in the Pro version either, it may tend to hog your bandwidth as well. Overall, Folx does feel a bit bloated and overwhelming for a download manager and is probably aimed at ‘power’ downloaders who need maximum control plus 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 you.
