just a head's up that the dev on his blog says this is on hold, so it might be abandonware.

Nice download manager. Here are a couple of things I would like to see.

1) Ability to add username / password to the downloads. When I try to download a file from a password protected http site, it doesn't work. GetRight on windows has this password ability.

2) I would also like the ability to download files in small batches, like 4 at a times and the others wait till there is an open spot.

If you can get these two .. it would be awesome.

I don't feel I can write a review yet but here are some things I've noticed and would like.

1. Why does it say "Medium" Speed? Is it meant to say "Median" Speed?

2. This may just be my connection but downloading is all over the place. Anywhere from 6kBps to 1000kBps on 1.5Mb (average should be about 192kBps).

3. You can't resize the window

4. It doesn't calculate an estimated time till done based on speed

5. Browser integration would be nice

6. Download folder is not saved. I like my files to go to the desktop but it would save the path after I quit.

Other than those Jet It! is a pretty sleek Java app.

And another thing that would make Jet It! great is slapping a special file extension on files that are downloading, much like browsers do.

Nothing fancy, just something so that you can tell the difference between a file you have and one you don't.

>>> 1. Why does it say "Medium" Speed? Is it meant to say "Median" Speed?

Ops ^^'

>>> 3. You can't resize the window

Now you can enable resize

>>> 4. It doesn't calculate an estimated time till done based on speed

ETA added.

>>> 5. Browser integration would be nice

I'm working about this.


Yeah, I saw you added some of the things I was looking for when you released Jet It! 1.0.1.

Keep up the good work.

Nice job, keep up the good work (and add the dynamic file segmentation feature).
