Folx is a very advanced download manager and torrent client. It allows you to download files from the Internet in different ways and with different features that make the task easier and faster. There is a paid version of this app, and a free one. The paid version has a few interesting features that make it worth it. For example, it can find torrents from within the application and it can accelerate web downloads by connecting to the host website up to ten times. It also has a few automatic speed management features that the free version lacks.
When you click on a download link for a file on the Net, Folx should pick it up and add a new downloading task for you. Or you can do this manually and simply paste the URL. There is support for tags, which should make it easy for you to organize your downloads.
When a download is active, torrent or otherwise, the download speed will be shown on the dock icon.
In terms of performance, Folx seemed to work alright. I can't say for sure whether speed acceleration really works. That is something that you will have to try for yourself. The rest of the features that I tried seemed to work well.
- Lots of features, especially in the PRO version
- It seems to work well
- I think the interface could use a little work to make it more intuitive
- Some parts of the GUI were slow
