3.1 (See all)

DownloadX is a simple file downloader that lets you save online files on the hard drive of your Mac. In addition, the application works as an HTTP server, so you can have the chance to access the files within the shared folder remotely, from portable devices or other computers.

The program is very easy to manage. You just need to open a New Task and paste the desired file URL. The tool supports multiple downloads and multiple connections. Their number can be limited from Preferences to prevent unwanted blockages. The same menu allows you to set the download location, the number of retries for when the download process stops unexpectedly, and the seconds to wait between retries. Optionally, you can pause a selected download task at any moment and resume it later, when the Internet connection is optimal. The app informs you about the available space on your Mac's drive so you won't face the unpleasant situation of not being able to finish the running tasks because your computer is short on disk space.

To sum up, DownloadX offers an easy solution to download online files. The tool supports multiple connections that will help you accelerate the download of a file. Furthermore, you can see the history of your downloads to prevent downloading the same file twice.
