Editors' Review

Internet Download Manager gives you the tools to download many types of files from the Internet and organize them as you see fit. You can categorize each file as you download it, and then access all downloads right from the app's main interface.

Pros

Speedy: Most short video files are downloaded almost instantly. As soon as you click "Download," a message pops up telling you the process is complete. You can then play the video immediately, or return to your browser to find more clips.

Browser integration: Since this app integrates with your browser, it can automatically detect when a downloadable file is present on a Web page and inserts a Download button onto the page. All you have to do is click the button and enter a description to begin the downloading process.

Contextual help: If you get stuck at any point while you're using the program, you can press "F1" to bring up a Help topic for the area of the program that you're in.

Cons

Clunky interface: The main interface of this app gets the job done, but it doesn't have the most intuitive setup. Novice users should have no trouble completing basic downloads, but to take advantage of some of the more advanced features or to change the preferences, you need to have a little bit of technical know-how.

Bottom Line

This is a good basic download manager, with a nice set of features, although it could be organized a little better.

"CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT"

May 08, 2015  |  By the_highlandlass

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 11

Pros

Ease of use
Speed of downloads

Cons

No cons that I could find.

Summary

Have used this software for years because we have a satellite internet access not broadband. The difference between downloads with/without this running is staggering. I think everyone will benefit from using it.

"absolutely horrible"

April 12, 2015  |  By nick123abl

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 10

Pros

none at all

Cons

does what almost all other download managers do but with a less aesthetically pleasing interface

Summary

people actually get paid for recommending IDM so I suspect that is why it's so damn popular without all the advertising I am certain no one would purchase it.

"don't waste money"

April 09, 2015  |  By bc-paddler

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 10

Pros

excellent program

Cons

I bought and registered this program. After 6 weeks I started getting pop up messages that IDM was registered with a fake serial number. I tried reinstalling and registering the program. I got the message that I was using a fake serial number and that the program was disabled.

"first install will not let me use, asking for money"

April 07, 2015  |  By ryans72

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 10

Pros

At least it was in English, so I could understand It was already asking for money.

Cons

t will not let me the use program from the first moment I installed it.
It has never been installed as this is a new windows 7 install. Have not tried it since
maybe the first couple of versions. Says that I have to reboot to finish uninstall.
Sorry but If I have to reboot to complete the uninstall process, then It must have really filled the registry with all sort of junk. l just look for a free alternative than doesn't hijack the system.

"Slows computer, clunky interface, updates EVERY DAY!!?"

March 27, 2015  |  By ryanlee75

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 9

Pros

None. Absolutely nothing great going on with this annoying app.

Cons

Slows computer, clunky interface, updates EVERY DAY!!? REALLY?! It seriously prompts you to download a "new build" every f'ng day! Don't know of any software out there that is that friggin annoying. It really doesn't do anything that special for a downloader either. Buggy, bad interface and CONSTANT annoying updates you have to download and reinstall over and over again.. forget this program, it sucks and they really don't care that it sucks as the program has changed little over last 7 years!

Summary

Fake reviewers all over here giving 5 stars are from people that are paid to advertise this crap software! Go ahead and buy it if you want to have to reinstall a "NEW" "UPDATE" every 5 seconds! LOL pathetically clueless these guys!

"they used to be good, but i can't get buy it anymore?"

February 28, 2015  |  By ancientspirit

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 2

Pros

when I owned two licenses for two old computer this program was the best!!!

Cons

know i try to buy it (3rd time vial credit card) I get a cancel charge, saying my credit card is fraud? funny, it still works when I buy gas?

also if you use it for Google (which I do with a lot of my internet searches) it loves to download for no reason at all? I have complained to IDM with photos i saved, but they never or don't want to fix this problem. I wished I could by the dame program, but when I do I get a charge of $15.00 for something going wrong on my credit card, considering I have contacted my credit card and they told me, that there nothing wrong with it in the first place? I think they do it on purpose (there 2check.com) just to get a free charge of the credit card owner of $15.00 bucks)

Summary

if they fix the Google problem (of it wanting to download everything? (good luck because I complained since year 2008)? than its a great program. Then you got to go past their crazy ordering and if your lucky you won't be branded "fraudulent" (know I got to recheck my credit history, if they didn't screw it up)
