Folx is a free download manager for Mac. It boasts the ability to split downloads in threads, resume interrupted downloads, efficiently manage and organize downloads, etc. It has a handy file-management system that allows finding any file you downloaded with Folx at lightning speed. Tagging downloads adds to the convenience of Folx: you can assign a tag--or several tags--to each download task, and easily find them whenever you need them, even if they were downloaded ages ago.

Folx Pro is available for a reasonable fee. The Pro version allows you to schedule downloads and to define the exit more...

I needed FOLX because I live in a place where the internet is slow and need a program to help my downloads be more efficient. I used to use Speed Download but that company has gone out of business. I wish I had tried FOLX sooner!

I've been using Folx Free for a week now and I'm very interested to upgrade to the PRO version. One particular feature that I love most is the simultaneous connections, even with 2 connections open in the Free version, its giving me good speeds. I can only imagine if its PRO and opens 10 connections, that will be all the more faster.

As a free user I benefit much from its file management options and resumption of broken downloads.

Not a fan of the beige interface, I would have preferred a native OS X look. But it's good, it's pretty good.

I've been a long time user of Folx starting with version 1. Version 3 is the best yet. The folks at Eltima really went all out this time. I've also found the support very responsive. Folx is a no brainer for the Mac platform.

Even when you buy this software and have activated it, it will still periodically "phone home" to recheck your licence. If there is any mess-up with their activation service, you will loose all the advanced funtions you have paid for until they clean up their error. This just happened to me.

Seriously, WTF???

Please, check if the date and time on your Mac are set correctly. Our activation system works so that it rechecks your license if there was no Internet connection during 7 days. These measures are needed to protect against the use of hacking software.

Time and Date on my Mac are current. When I re-enter the Licence code I got from you, error message displays "the Activation server says the code is not for this product/version".

Please, send your activation code to support@eltima.com. We will check it.

The german translation of this application is awful (I delete the german language packs to have the english one from now to better understand what the app want to say to me). Also I didn't like the brown background. Would be nice to let change the colors... Also I missed an option to let quit the app after X minutes and not directly after the download is complete... Oh and the fixed hight ofthe main-window is a bit to much.
The rest looks ok for me at the moment and hopefully it would deliver a good replacement for Speed Download, who's taken down now.

What I like is the simple overview, the filter function to let sort the files in a folder, the compact view and the good integration in all standard browsers (Safari, Firefox, Opera, Chrome).

When I went to their www site they say:

" Folx is a free download manager for Mac OS X with a true Mac-style interface. "

What is that all about ?

It seems to me cagey wording.

How do i get that "Free" version ? Because the download gives version 3 which is the twenty dollar version.

Not sure about the ethics of this developer.

( Sorry about my ratings however MacUpdate seems rigid in not allowing a simple review/commentary with out imposing ratings numbers on the review. Also their text editor requires a makeover. )

As you can see on our website Folx is offered in two versions: FREE and PRO. You will find their comparison on our website too. Folx PRO version costs $19.95. During the current promo the price is $9.95. To download Folx free version just click the download button on our website. To upgrade to PRO version you should use the activation code which will be sent after its purchase. Hope you will find this explanation reasonable enough to change your rating. Thanks in advance.

I've been using version 2. This product works well most of the time. It has quirks, and every now and then decides that it won't download files. Sometimes fixing it requires restarting the program or the computer, and then it works again. The most annoying thing is the license, which again every now and then needs to be re-entered. Now with the release of version 3, after downloading the new version, it indicated that my license key was for the previous version. So I paid for the upgrade. The new license key arrived minutes later, saying that it was for version 2, and when I entered that, I duly received a message saying that the license was for the wrong version. As a number of reviwers have said, these people can't get some of the basics right. That's a pity because when it works, the software is pretty good.

Hello, Roydv58,
Did you contact our support team? The issue with your activation code sounds strange and it should be checked. We will do this if you email us.

An email has been sent showing the screen. In addition, if they check the email that includes the activation code that was sent to me today, they will see that it is for version 2, not 3.

We have checked your key. The error from our side really took place and we apologize for this. Please, try the key you received in 30 minutes. It will work on v. 3.0
