Binbot is a tool to download files from binary newsgroups on Usenet. Features include:
  • Easy to use, fast and powerful
  • Designed to handle large newsgroups with ease
  • Automatically assembles, decodes and unpacks articles (unrar/unzip/unsplit)
  • Supports multiple connections and multiple servers for optimal download speed
  • Full NZB support
  • Built-in Usenet search

What's New

Version 2.0: One of the new features in this release is improved memory management. Binbot now automatically detects when the amount of available memory is getting low, and starts discarding newly downloaded articles. These articles are stored on the local hard drive before being discarded, so you won't have to download them again in the future. This should avoid some of the issues we've been seeing when more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

I have registered it yesterday and real hope the development is not dead like it seems.
The app is running very stable and has no problem with real speed my 120/10 connection is running good, with some more options like integration of par2 repairing if needed, collections options to start nzb immediately.

When there's no need to repair an archive as soon the download is finsihed your release is unpacked that's real amazing, but it does also unpack it when there errors in it so you have to check the unpack screen yourself (this should be fixed) at least delete the corrupt stuff so that i can use macpar deluxe on them for repair and unpacking.

It still for me the best usenet download tool, OS X is Hot, Usenet is Hot there a lot of switchers stll running newsleecher in a VM come on MAC can do this much better!!!

Keep working on it hope to see more of it!!!

This is a fast and competent newsgroup downloading tool. It works quite well, the only gripes I have are, it won't automatically start downloading when you drop an nzb file on it, you have to tell it to. Also, it won't auto repair files using PARs.

What it does do, it does well and it is a pretty new program, so it probably isn't fair to fault it for not having the advanced feature of repairing RARs. However, starting to download files when you drop an nzb on it is something reasonable to expect at this point in development.

Considering how rock solid it is right now, and how well it does what it says it is supposed to do, I think this is a very promising tool for downloading files from newsgroups. It is very intuitive and the set-up is simple and straightforward. The only minor gripe about the interface is that it is a bit "Window-y", with letters underlined to indicate menu shortcuts. It just needs a little clean-up to make it more "Mac-like". The downloads are very fast, and it is able to open a user-defined number of connections (limited only by your provider).

This program hasn't replaced Unison for me yet, but if the developer adds repair functions, a "watch" folder for nzb files and makes the interface a bit more "Mac-like", it will. No program, not SABnzbd, not Nzb Drop, none will rival it then. Heres hoping the developer will add those features (and allow it to start downloading immediately upon nzb drop) and clean up the interface. It could be the best newsgroup downloading tool out there if those items are addressed (and it will then be worth the $20 asking price).
