Editors' Review


Broken connections, unwieldy file sizes, and computer crashes--oh, my! The pitfalls facing downloaders are many and varied, so we welcome a program that solves these problems. GetRight extends the ability of your browser's built-in downloading options, and provides useful features such as download scheduling, file segmenting, and error recovery from broken connections.

Once the easy-to-use application is installed, it springs into action when it detects a download from your browser. Because it minimizes to an icon in your system tray, make sure it's actually running when you begin a download. Resuming an interrupted download is as simple as double-clicking the file from the download history. We noticed no appreciable speed gain with segmented downloading over a broadband connection, but dial-up connections should see an increase.

The latest version offers an integrated BitTorrent client that allows file downloads using both BitTorrent and standard Web-based downloading. There's also a games application built in to the app, an unexpected but not unappreciated add-on. At the time of writing, though, the gaming site could only be accessed from the GetRight home page, and not the built-in link.

There are other download managing apps that have encroached on GetRight's turf, and some of them are free. Still, GetRight gets the green light for all users who regularly download files from the Internet.

"Getright 6.5 needs an update"

February 06, 2015  |  By DJ5152

 |  Version: GetRight 6.5


Great Tools
Easy and Convenient to Use


Current version of 6.5 can't handle downloads from https:// links very well.


The latest version of Getright (6.5) seems to have trouble downloading and resuming files from https:// links. Firefox browsers built-in download manager has no problem with the same https:// links, but it's also not as convenient. Hopefully Getright 6.5 is updated in the future with the same https:// download functionally of the latest Firefox browser.
