Editors' review

The Internet contains an abundance of entertaining and educational content in both audio and video formats, and sooner or later almost everyone finds themselves wanting to download such content for later use. Fortunately for all of us, many programs have cropped up in recent years to help us with this task. HiDownload is one such program; but, we're sorry to say, it's not nearly as user-friendly as some others we've encountered.

The program's interface is plain and doesn't offer a whole lot in the way of direction. Some of the features were pretty easy to figure out, but others confounded us. The online Help file isn't particularly well-written, and it was confusing at least as often as it was helpful. We were able to easily download an MPEG file, but other file types didn't come as easily. There are plenty of mentions throughout the interface and Help file about YouTube and FLV files, but our attempts at downloading and playing them were futile. There were a lot of features alluded to in HiDownload's interface that didn't make any obvious sense, and overall we found the program to be frustrating to use. It's entirely possible that HiDownload is perfectly functional, but why bother to find out when there are so many programs that do the same thing and are much easier to use?

HiDownload has a 30-day trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program with reservations.
