Info updated on:


Downie 4 is a software tool whose main functionality is to allow individuals to download videos from various websites easier. By using this app, users will spend more time enjoying their videos, rather than waiting for the download to complete.

Once you've installed and run it, you get in contact with its simple GUI, which has a toolbar, located at the bottom of the screen, comprised of a few tabs. The Preferences window is very intuitive and contains useful configuration settings. The memory usage is low, the buttons respond well to user commands and there's even a dark mode theme that can be selected from the Preferences tab.

As per the included features, it worths mentioning that Downie 4 supports over 400 different websites, including the most popular ones, like YouTube, Apple, Dailymotion, LiveLeak, Vimeo, BBC, and others.
Moreover, in case you want to add a video into your iTunes playlist, you can do this with ease thanks to postprocessing options provided by Downie 4.
Other important functions include History synchronization and 4K video YouTube support.

All things considered, Downie 4 is a useful download manager, with an intuitive interface and smart features. Yet, the price seems a bit expensive and the toolbar icons are too tiny.
