Download Accelerator Plus makes downloading all kinds of files more convenient than ever by increasing speed and cutting out unnecessary steps. The base program offers a nice set of features, and there are also multiple add-ons you can install to customize the program to suit your specific needs and usage patterns.

Pros

Add-on options: There are all kinds of programs you can include in your Download Accelerator package to tailor it to your needs. These include a Link Checker, which identifies invalid or expired download links, as well as a File Shredder, ZIP Preview, and Multi Anti-Virus Security program.

Clear interface: Even novice users should have no trouble finding their way around this program's interface. There are clearly labeled buttons across the top of the screen that provide access to all of the program's features, and instructions for carrying out various processes are clear enough.

Cons

Crashes: The program did crash multiple times during testing when we were trying to download files. On both occasions, the app stopped working as soon as we started a download from YouTube, and the only way to resolve the problem was to close the program and then reopen it.

Automatic add-ons: Quite a few of the items listed as add-ons were automatically installed with the base program. However, if you don't want any of the add-ons that seem to come with the program, you can remove them quickly through the Add-Ons Manager.

Bottom Line

Download Accelerator Plus can be a good tool if you download a lot of items on a regular basis. It offers a lot of useful features, although it would be nice if its performance was a bit more predictable. This is a free program, although there are some limits to the amount of things you can do in certain situations. There is a Pro version with no limits available for $39.95.
