"No good for software updates"

April 16, 2010  |  By geckobeat

 |  Version: iGetter 2.8

Pros

Can't say - Haven't tried all the features yet

Cons

It doesn't help with Apple's very large updates. I have a slow connection that keeps breaking involved much manual reconnecting, but it seems iGetter doesn't deal with that ...Pity... am I possibly missing some or other setting?

"Fantastic! Made wifi downloading much easier!"

December 26, 2009  |  By XttinaGarnet

 |  Version: iGetter 2.8

Pros

-Restarts dropped downloads automatically
- Faster downloading time
-Schedule downloads
-Can optimize download que.
-Free (can register, would if I had $, I wish there was a donation option though, because I would like to do something)

Cons

-A bit hard to integrate with safari, but once you find directions in igetter help, works great! Just click on any download link and it will download in igetter. Directions to do this should be more prominent though.
-Interface design not attractive.

Summary

Great way to speed up downloading time, particularly if you have an unreliable internet connection. Never start and stop dropped links again! Load downloads into igetter, set to start automatically or start a que and forget about it, until your downloads are ready to install!

Pros

FAST downloads

Cons

Poor integration with 64 bit Safari.

Doesn't catch many downloads with 64 bit Safari but does OK with FFox.Also seems to have no problems with downloaded files.Same can't be said for other DL Accelerators.
