EagleGet facilitates quick downloads of various types of files from the Internet, and stores them in a special folder where you can access them anytime. It integrates with several different browsers to make the downloading process as streamlined as possible.
Direct downloads: Since it integrates with multiple browsers including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Opera, this app automatically detects when there is a downloadable file available on a Web page. All you have to do is hover your cursor over the file to bring up a Download button. Then just click and select a file type to start your download.
Auto-categorize: This is a feature you can turn on and off, but if you prefer, the app will auto-categorize items you download to make your organizational process quicker. If you'd rather do the categorizing, yourself, though, you can turn this feature off.
Virus check: Another nice feature of this app is the ability to check for a virus in the file once download is complete but before you open it. This can keep you from inadvertently harming your computer with infected files.
Buggy features: While the main downloading features in this app worked fine, the Video Sniffer feature, which is supposed to let you search for videos without actually opening a browser, never managed to access any search results. The only time it came up with anything was if we pasted a URL directly into the search box, but that pretty much defeats the purpose of this feature.
EagleGet works well for downloading videos, and its browser integration makes the process as quick as possible. It's accessible for both new users and those with more experience, although it would be nice if the in-app search feature worked as intended. If you don't mind that minor drawback, this is a good free app to try.
