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.

"Be Smart and Do Not Buy IDM"

January 01, 2015  |  By dakota5611

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.21 build 17

Pros

It is fast when the server is freed up. It get slow when is busy. It cannot make the outgoing server faster than it is. Ridiculous claims made by some persons here.

Cons

Suspicious slowing down of my two laptops after I uninstalled before the trial expiry date.

Summary

Those praising IDM must be selling IDM themselves!

YTD is better and more direct. There are a handful downloaders doing the same job and it is free.

"Can't uninstall"

September 14, 2014  |  By gtitus09

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.21 build 10

Pros

Downloads faster than my browser

Cons

Can't uninstall it.

Summary

It seemed to work faster than my browser's downloader but I cannot seem to uninstall it. The window comes up to uninstall but the progress indicator just sits there for longer than a minute before I finally give up. That shouldn't be. Nothing is being removed it just sits there.
