Manage downloads and download faster with iGetter

Downloading lots of files and managing your downloads is easy and fast with this useful app.

iGetter is a download management app for MacOS. We could not find iGetter on the App Store but it is available from several download sites and the publisher's Web site. iGetter installs easily. You can use iGetter for free as a single use license with no expiration, or buy a license with full support for $25.

The iGetter interface consists of a number of icons across the top of the dialog and a status display for files beneath. It can launch automatically when you start a download, or you can use iGetter to initiate the downloads. There are two parts to iGetter: the download manager and the download accelerator. The manager lets you handle a list of files to be transferred and start or stop them as needed, and it allows multiple downloads at the same time. The accelerator uses segmented downloading over several streams to accelerate the download process, especially helpful with larger files. As with most download utilities, iGetter lets you resume a download that got interrupted or paused, so you don't have to start the entire download again. Nice graphics show you the progress of downloads.

We used iGetter to download files from several sites, including some Usenet feeds, and it handled all the file requests with ease. The graphic display of progress was handy and helped pass the short time for larger files. The segmented downloading worked well on larger files and servers that support such a feature. We had no issues with iGetter in our testing at all.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iGetter for Mac 2.9.1.
