Leech for Mac3.1.4

Complete control over your downloads.

What is Leech for Mac

Leech gives you complete control over your downloads and full browser integration. You can queue, pause and resume downloads, download from password-protected servers and store your passwords in your system-wide, secure keychain. And you won't have to worry about downloads that were disrupted by a crashing browser ever again.

Sure, your browser can download. But does it let you easily accelerate downloads, limit bandwidth, download on a schedule, or execute rules to sort incoming downloaded files? Doubt it. And clearly, you're not going to be able to quit that RAM-consuming monster of a browser until all your downloads are done.

What's new in Leech

Version 3.1.4:
Bug Fixes and Improvements
  • Fixed a bug where Leech considered download attempts successful when a connection was established, but nothing was actually downloaded. (Hat tip to Diana T. for catching this one.)
  • In Mojave, scrolling the Leech window would cause a portion of the displayed list of URLs to be blanked out; resizing would fix the problem. As this is annoying, we made it so that scrolling works as expected.

Good workflow, stability, speed and easiness. Perfect app. I don't know anything about all the old drama written below, I don't care, this program just works for me. Especially the feature to limit to certain number of downloads per host and/or in total is gold, because I don't want to be to hard on some hosts. I just want to quickly (copy/paste :)) enter a 2do list and don't look back until it has finished.

Chrome, Opera and iCab are not supported and I don't think this up is being developed anymore since 2 years. I still use it and love it but the missing support for Chrome etc. lets me look for other software periodically

This, like a few other downloading apps still on offer and even new ones just coming out, is utterly useless if it doesn't include multi-threaded downloading. Why would I add more complexity to my downloading if it offers no speed enhancement? I don't get it, and I won't get it.

please add an option to have leech update the "date modified" timestamp of a downloaded file to the current date/time. i hate having to go look for a file with an old timestamp when the save directory is sorted by modified date. thanks.

I'd like to say I've tried this software and loved it. However, after reading all the drama and customer service attitude I'll steer clear. You lost all your customer data (shameful), the product gets abandoned for a period of time, and then you come along asking for upgrade fees? Sorry I want software that solves problems and doesn't create drama in my life.

Even though there seem to have been some changes within the staff of ManyTricks, I've pretty much had it with any kind of company or app respectively that involves Peter Maurer...! Don't get me wrong though -- Peter Maurer has lots of talent when it comes to designing good-looking and useful Mac apps ... but he also has the habit of starting promising projects and then abandoning them after a short period of time...! :( 'Leech' is just one of several examples over the last few years...
