"It works, but it that's about it"

January 08, 2009  |  By JoeyJoeJoeJr

 |  Version: Nimiq 1.31

Pros

Simple menus and layout, download to specified directory, periodic updates

Cons

Didn't catch every podcast, canceling downloads does nothing, doesn't check for player connection before downloading, updates "Last Download" time even if downloads fail

Summary

My feelings can pretty much be summed up with the pros and cons, but I'll tell you specifically why I chose to uninstall this program.

My MP3 player connects like a flash drive, I can just drag and drop files if I want to. I setup Nimiq to download podcasts directly to my player. It works fine if you do things in the right order. I opened the program without connecting my player first and it tried to download anyway. I had 6 downloads stall and I was unable to cancel or clear them from the queue. I tried to retry the downloads but Nimiq already updated its timestamp and assumed those podcasts are already up to date.

Again, if you use it properly it does the trick, but it's not very forgiving at all.

"Won't install."

December 31, 2008  |  By rob1249

 |  Version: Nimiq 1.31

Pros

Downloads quickly.

Cons

It won't install because my installed version of .NET Framework is to new.
Really? I need to downgrade my software to use this?

"Excellent - small, easy and does the job"

April 18, 2008  |  By martin112358

 |  Version: Nimiq 1.31

Pros

It does just what it should and has a straightforward interface.

Cons

The only drawback is the absence of a scheduler feature, so you have to remember to turn it on and press "go" now and then.

"Not so easy, no help"

December 05, 2007  |  By Terrapin Ted

 |  Version: Nimiq 1.31

Pros

It's free

Cons

There's no help function at all. If you don't already know how to use this, you're dead in the water. I thought I had it set to simply subscribe to one podcast, but nada. It's like the software is inert.

"Requires .NET framework but won't install it."

May 02, 2005  |  By Dex2177

 |  Version: Nimiq 1.31

Cons

Requires .NET framework but won't install it. Takes you to a complicated .NET developer page where you are expected to figure out what to install before this program can be installed. Not worth it for any average user or a user who doesn't want to dick around.
