Editors' Review


iGetter is a download management app for MacOS. We could not find iGetter on the App Store but it is available from several download sites and the publisher's Web site. iGetter installs easily. You can use iGetter for free as a single use license with no expiration, or buy a license with full support for $25.

The iGetter interface consists of a number of icons across the top of the dialog and a status display for files beneath. It can launch automatically when you start a download, or you can use iGetter to initiate the downloads. There are two parts to iGetter: the download manager and the download accelerator. The manager lets you handle a list of files to be transferred and start or stop them as needed, and it allows multiple downloads at the same time. The accelerator uses segmented downloading over several streams to accelerate the download process, especially helpful with larger files. As with most download utilities, iGetter lets you resume a download that got interrupted or paused, so you don't have to start the entire download again. Nice graphics show you the progress of downloads.

We used iGetter to download files from several sites, including some Usenet feeds, and it handled all the file requests with ease. The graphic display of progress was handy and helped pass the short time for larger files. The segmented downloading worked well on larger files and servers that support such a feature. We had no issues with iGetter in our testing at all.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iGetter for Mac 2.9.1.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.9.4
  • Optimized for Safari 9 on OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
  • Optimized for Firefox v43+ and Chrome v45+ browsers.
  • Added support for the Safari 9 cookie repository on OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Now iGetter can read Safari cookies on OS X 10.11+, as well as on previous OS X versions.
  • Digitally signed iGetter Extension for Firefox at Mozilla add-ons store. This is a requirement since Firefox v43.
  • Reworked iGetter Extension for initial compatibility with multiprocess versions of Firefox (v45+).
  • Digitally signed iGetter Extension for Chrome/Chromium at Google Play store. This allows automatic in-browser installation and update through the store. This is a requirement for the external extensions with the recent versions of Chrome.
  • Reworked iGetter Extension for Chrome/Chromium using the build-in extension API to send all downloads to iGetter. The above operation can be temporarily disabled with the new context menu command "Disable integration" added by iGetter Extension for Chrome.
  • Improved installation of iGetter Extension for Safari 9.0+, due to changed requirements for updating local extensions in Safari 9.
  • Improved both iGetter Plugin and iGetterScriptablePlugin for Safari, to read HttpOnly cookies in addition to the already available session and standard cookies.
  • Implemented a workaround for the issue introduced in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, which in certain circumstances won't update properly the logical end of file, that could lead to improperly truncated files after a system restart. In iGetter this could manifest in an error that local file download has different size from the remote file.
  • Reworded the browser integration options in both iGetter Preferences -> Integration and Installation dialogs, to better reflect the new browser integration functionality. The new option "Install iGetter Browser Extension (add contextual menus, watch for URL clicks)" replaces the previously worded "Add contextual menu support for Internet Browsers". Also "Install iGetter Browser Plugin (Safari and browsers with NPAPI support)" replaces "Integrate with Internet Browsers (watch for URL clicks)".
  • Changed "Integrate with Internet Browsers" command from the Tools menu with "Install iGetter Browser Plugin" command, to better reflect its functionality in accordance with the changes in iGetter Preferences > Integration tab panel.
  • Added new function "Install iGetter Browser Extension" in the Tools menu, which installs/uninstalls iGetter Extensions for Safari, Firefox and Chrome/Chromium, and all applicable components.
  • Updated User Agents of Safari, Firefox and Chrome for OS X, as well as Internet Explorer and Firefox for Windows with recent versions.
  • Added support for the "audio/" MIME type.
  • Implemented a workaround for an issue with OpenSSL, which in certain cases during a TLS EXT conversation, would drop the connection. The workaround will be used only on systems with OpenSSL 0.9.8j or later (MacOS X 10.6+ to OS X 10.11+).
  • Fixed an issue with iGetter preferences, which in some very rare cases on OS X 10.10+ won't save the latest preferences changes on disk.
  • Fixed an issue that could lead in some rare cases to high CPU load in Retina mode on OS X 10.10+.
  • Fixed an issue with AppNap usage which in some cases would prevent system sleep while iGetter is running on OS X 10.9+.
  • Fixed an issue with the "Add to queue" ("Process Web Page") window, when the Total links number won't be calculated properly.
