Folx Pro free download for Mac

Folx Pro5.24

04 December 2020

Download manager.

Overview

Folx combines two functionalities - of download manager and torrent client. It makes downloading extremely easy: just open the page with the file to be downloaded, click the link in your browser, and Folx will start the download for you. Its auto-resume option comes handy when the downloading gets interrupted. You can also assign a tag or a few to the downloaded content for accurate and easy search through the downloaded files.

There are many basic features included in the free trial. However, the Pro version brings such handy features as splitting the downloads in up to 20 threads which speeds up the download process; scheduling the download tasks according to your convenience; smart speed adjustment option (download speed will be adjusted automatically whenever you need to use Internet traffic to run other applications), iTunes integration, searching the web for torrents directly from Folx and password manager.

Please, note that this version of Folx does not support downloading videos from YouTube. To be able to download YouTube videos, please get the special build from the developer's website.

One of the best download managers on the Mac, almost comparable to IDM on Windows!

This is a broken piece of software. The promise it a downloader that also does torrents. The problem is that torrenting through the software is not a good experience. I got folx pro for the added features. The search function is broken, slow and does not populate all the search results from the stated websites. The tagging feature might be useful for some however it is not smart enough to distinguish between a movie and a TV show. There is no option to remotely control torrents through a cell phone or other devise (this is a feature many free torrent apps provide). The app is unstable and crashes. So if you are downloading a file you may find after leaving your computer for a while that the app is not running when you come back. While it states on the website that any download can be split into multiple downloads (up to 20 with pro) this feature is NOT offered for torrents. While support is prompt to respond they do not want to offer refunds. They will request personal information about logs, download history etc. If you are willing to put in a lot of work you may get a refund, however I am not being paid to be their beta tester! So the refund policy is not an honest representation of fact. I hope this review helps others make informed decisions about purchasing this piece of software. What Folx is really good at is advertising is software as being much better than it really is. Try Deluge, Transmission, or qBittorrent instead. You will thank me later.

ZERO support! Over the past month or so I've contacted Eltima twice via their online form. I received no replies. Recently I created a folder in a different location and moved all my Folx downloads into it. But folx can't find them and there is NO OPTION in the prefs to change folders. A location can only be chosen when adding a download. I downloaded a new torrent and set the new folder as default, but Folx still doesn't see all the other completed files in that folder. Relocating failed, as did force re-checking. But the dev. doesn't care enough to respond. Then I sent another issue about the browser extension failing to recognize torrent files in Firefox. When I click magnet links, Folx begins downloading them. When I click torrent links, Folx does nothing. Using right-click>download with Folx also does nothing. Again, dev. couldn't care less. And lately Folx won't DL YouTube videos unless I log in. I end up using Downie for those because I don't want to log in.

Its a scam all those features of pro are available for free in other apps and torrenting is complete bullshit in folx peers connect disconnect all the time and speeds fluctuate than free alternatives. Don't know why people rated it as best, when simple http downloads are slow with file segmenting download which does not work most of the time.

Bought the Pro Version based on some (unbiased?) reviews, but the program is no more efficient and in my view less user friendly than other free ones like qBittorent. Asked for a refund based on their 14 day policy but its not really worth the hassle as they make you jump through so many hoops and will in the end only refund if you can prove their program is at fault for stalling downloads. DONT BOTHER!

Sorry, but this just does not cut it in Safari or Firefox. More than an assistant, it has is a nuisance - does not remember where to save files, does not process downloads from servers serving aspx files, and simply not working with Safari. I use this app as part of Setapp and just used CleanMyMac to uninstall it completely.
