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.

"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.
