"Beware massive, unnecessary loss of data"

June 08, 2005  |  By DeusExMachina

 |  Version: Acquisition 118.3

Pros

Great user interface, efficient operation, successfully downloads many files

Cons

I very purposely rated this one star. It has a VERY serious fatal flaw, I can deal with the crashing, what I can't deal with is the fact that, even after it quits successfully, it occassionally loses ALL your download information. This has happened repeatedly ever since the first version, and has never been addressed, even though a work around would take, at most, a few minutes and a few lines of code to save the backup downloads.cache file and then reuse it at user request when the downloads are lost. I have done this manually on several occassions, and it works fine, but I should not have to go digging around in the system Library folder every time I launch the app on the off chance it will decide to screw me over again. Having lost literally hundreds of gigabytes of data since I first began using Acquisition, while I can recommend it, I certainly would never suggest paying a penny for it until this is addressed.

Great improvement over Limewire. Doesnt slow down system and is as easy to navigate as your Finder windows.

Cons

"New version VERY unstable"

May 30, 2005  |  By gryphonent

 |  Version: Acquisition 118.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This used to be a good application, but as Iâ??ve experienced now, customer support is non-existing. I hope that the frequent crashes, described by others in this forum, will be fixed soon. The developer did not respond to my bug reports - ever. So, itâ??s anybodyâ??s guess whether heâ??s working on improving this app.

"Bad and getting worse"

May 27, 2005  |  By v4rider

 |  Version: Acquisition 118.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This developer continues to build on the strength of previous bugs while adding new bugs to every version. The latest is the program suddenly dropping all connections, search results and any downloads in progress. As well, the last two versions have the nasty habit of not recognizing partially downloaded files within the Incomplete Folder. Unexpected crashes have also worked their way into the last two versions.

Better to stick with versions prior to 118.X. A program that continues its downward slide.
