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.

"Worst piece of Software I've ever installed in my Life"

Pros

None to be found.

Cons

Tonec's internet download manager is by FAR and AWAY THE Most expensive download manager in existence today. And, That is for just ONE licence. God Help you if you have more than one device in your home.

They cheat and Steal other people's technology. There is not a single thing that Internet Download Manager utilizes in its software that they didn't lift from the Original copyright holder. NOTHING unique. In fact, you can find it ALL in Free programs.

What we think is worse by far is the fact that it is Continually "dialing home" without permission. Often, several times a day. It has no Permission to do this, without the equipment owner's consent. It does this Regardless of if you have the free or the Paid edition. They have specific backdoors they have inserted into your computer so that they can do certain updates, without your permission, but mostly to make sure you aren't trying to use it on more than 1 device. This is particularly Shady. You CANNOT turn it off. Also Hijacks

Summary

Worst piece of Garbage software ever created.

Updated on Sep 23, 2016

And, Good Luck getting this thing Uninstalled after it leaves remnants all over in your Registry. I'm Really surprised the Antivirus companies don't catch this as a Virus.
