URL Extractor

4.7
25 July 2019

Batch process files and extract URLs.

Overview

URL Extractor extracts email addresses and URLs from files, from the Web, and also via search engines. It can start from a single Web page and navigate all the links inside looking for emails or URLs to extract, and save all on the user HD. It can also extract from a single file or from all the content of a folder on your HD at any nested level.

Once done, it can save URL Extractor documents to disk, containing all the setting used for a particular folder or file or Web pages, ready to be reused. Or the extracted data can be saved on disk as text files ready to be used for the user purposes.

It allows the user to specify a list of Web pages used as navigation starting points and going to other Web pages using cross-navigation. You can also specify a series of keywords; then it searches Web pages related to the keywords via search engines, and starts a cross-navigation of the pages, collecting URLs. It can navigate for hours without user interaction in Web extraction mode, extracting all the URLs it finds in all the Web pages it surfs unattended; or starting from a single search engine using keywords, looking in all the resulting and linked pages in an unlimited navigation and URL extraction.

Features
  • Extracts from PDF, also online
  • Extracts from multiple file inside a folder, to any level of nesting (also thousand and thousand of files)
  • Extracts directly from the Web cross navigating Web pages in background. No user action required!
  • Extracts on search engines starting from keywords and navigating in all the linked pages in an unlimited navigation from one page to the successive, all this just starting from a single keyword
  • Google extraction from specific international Google sites with URL extraction more focused on individual country and language.
  • URL table for live Web extraction
  • Extracts Web address, FTP address, email address, feed, Telnet, local file URL, news. and generic emails
  • Drag-and-drop of files to process
  • Uses the latest Cocoa multi-threading technology, no legacy code inside.
  • Uses a separate threading for extraction process and Web navigation, no freeze during extraction, even on heavy tasks!
  • Option for single domain extraction
  • Uses various country search engines .com .it .fr . au .uk .de and .es .ar .au .at .be .br .ca .fi .nl .se .ch .jp .cn, uses google and bing
  • Uses Resume, Auto Save, Versions, Full screen.

Nice idea, but all it produces from a pdf file with hundreds of URLs is some garbage and hundreds of demands to buy this crap...

It does extract from PDF files, from text files and from the web, starting from a series of web sites addresses or from keywords via search engines. All, in batch mode, with just 1 single click.

This is interesting. Under the term "Shareware" I understand, as properly indicated in the software, that I get to use all the features for a certain number of days. Here however, it works as such: 1) You get a screen telling you that you have a 10 day trial. 2) You try to use the app, but it's actually limited like a demo. What is it now, Shareware or Demo? That aside, it uses a lot of RAM and thanks to its restrictions, does not give me enough reasons to pay 50 dollars for something like this. Seriously developer, shorten your alerts' dialogues and create a proper trial.

For people not satisfied of the way we offer URL Extractor via our site we offer an alternative: The Apple Mac App Store. In the Mac App Store you have the warranty that the app was tested by Apple (it's the same software we distribute here but you have the Apple warranty) Thank you

How's the AppStore a guarantee that an app is great and awesome? Apple is a business, they want to earn money too and they do through application sales. There's no money back guarantee and even if there was: The app on the MacApp store is the same as you're offering here, which means all the problems I posted about above are still there. So I really don't understand the point you're making.

We are as Apple too. We make software for money and not for free. But we are honest and we work with passion, I don't think asking money for work is non ethic as people think in the Linux world. In the past URL Extractor was full working from the start. We had very low level of sales. Changing to the actual shape increase sales by x10. We prefer this way to handle things, the alternative would be to stop URL Extractor development. When you extract URL any 'Please purchase a license' string in the extraction list is a true URL extracted, replaced at the last time by the license system, so if you get them (the long list of 'please purchase a license', the software works, plus you can see the first URLs visualized and available in full plain text. The problem could be if you think the software is a fake. It isn't. If the app is in the App Store you know a team of people at Apple tested it, there are no fake app at the Apple Store. Purchasing from the App Store gives you this additional warranty if you don't trust the developer. (YES at the App Store URL Extractor is the same you have here but that is exactly what I wanted to point out) There is no way to convince us to release a version that works before paying, we already did it and we know people doesn't pay for it even if they really find the App really useful. URL Extractor in some way from a marketing point of view is a lot different from other App, believe me. This is the reason it is marketed in a lot restrictive way then the others. As example we have other Apps such as Password Repository or Calcline or (well we have 21 and growing app for Mac OS X) that are a lot usable without licensing them. The problem with URL Extractor is that this way doesn't work with it. URL Extractor is a lot particular in many way, as example is one of the software with the high level of fraud purchase attempt... we have to use an approach a bit different with it, even if we know honest users can be a bit discouraged by this but often they understand it.

It's the biggest joke I'd ever seen as a Mac supported and endorsed product! Really, I come close to believe that this is a scam. Downloaded it and tried to extract http:// from a simple rtfd file ... it didn't do a thing. It just laid there like dead meat. Threw it instantly in the Trash bin and wouldn't even waste a second on this crap ... 50 bucks he wants for that? He would need to pay me 100 for a lost half an hour ;-)

URL Extractor is available also in the Apple Mac App Store. As avery one knows Apple test product before inserting it in the App Store. This is the proof URL Extractor works and works well If not enough URL Extractor has a large user base of paying satisfied users all over the world. Please avoid useless (maybe interested to divert users to other products?) comment as this one. Really. Thank you

I can't really evaluate how well it does since, in my case, it only extracted 12 addresses from a folder containing 50 files, and 4402 "Purchase a license....". Email Extractor, which I have been using for some time, on the same folder gave me 1,138 valid addresses, 19,204 bad addresses and 5,756 duplicate addresses at less than half the price! I do like the "web" and "search engine" options, but I haven't tried these. Most of my requirements are with files. The price is 'out of whack' compared to similar products.

The licensed version doesn't substitute URLs with 'Please purchase a license' Unfortunately first releases were full working and very few people paid for URL Extractor. After using the 'Please purchase a license' string we increased our sales x10. If you like you can purchase URL Extractor from the Apple Mac App Store, it is a full working version from the start. Thank you.

I just now downloaded the file, and it unzips and the resulting .dmg mounts with no issues (OS X 10.4.11, Safari). Try using another browser to download the file.

I have tried with both .rtf and .xls files, but the software doesn't seem to actually be able to extract URLs. Kind of pricey.

Wolfeatsworld if you read carefully you will notice that the low judgement are from people angry because they are not able to use the software without paying it or complaining for the price. We can't do nothing about it. Regarding the technical quality of the app we continuously improve it and we have a lot of satisfied effective users
