    "Useless crapware"

    July 16, 2012   |   By nickslav

    Version: Speed Download 5.2.28

    Pros

    Works with tube sites

    Cons

    Limited hosting sites and limited browser integration ( e.g. Chrome)

    Costs money

    Much better downloaders for Mac out there and free.

    Summary

    Being new to Mac stupidly bought this app without trying it out. Assumed that coming from Apple Store it would be half decent.Live and learn.

    "Works in Lion"

    October 03, 2011   |   By psr--2008

    Version: Speed Download 5.2.28

    Pros

    I've had this since OS 9 and it has always been great.

    Cons

    I do not have any negatives.

    Summary

    A great download manager that does work in Lion. I simply do not know what all of these other comments are talking about it not working in Lion. I use it several times a day. You may have an older plug-in still installed. Allow Speed Download to install the latest plug-in.

    "LION STALL"

    August 15, 2011   |   By supayne

    Version: Speed Download 5.2.22

    Pros

    I have been a registered user for years; SD has been an excellent downloader with lots of features. It has had glitches with updates of IOS software or its own, but they have usually been solved in short order.

    Cons

    With the update of LION, the SD program was not working - neither was the built-in mac program. The help people gave the standard answer of deleting the program & re-installing, but THIS TIME it did not work! To make sure, I re-installed 3 times.

    Summary

    In order to download at all, I uninstalled SD & am using the built-in download program. I am awaiting the LION compatibility fix!!
