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!

I'm relatively new to Folx, but a few things I noticed and wished they're in Folx or even Folx Pro: 1- I can't insert the whole trackers to paste in one place like uTorrent. In Folx, I have to insert a tracker one by one, which is a really exhaustive. 2- For searching torrents, I can't add torrent websites to search in through the app itself. It seems there are specific websites to search from that are put by the developer and can't add more websites. 3- I can't control bandwidth per file I download in the torrent like uTorrent, or Is it high by standard to all files in the torrent, which would be really great?

The information on how to control bandwidth per file you can find at this link: https://wiki.eltima.com/user-guides/folx/torrents-folx.html. Please check 'Setting download priority for the files in a torrent' paragraph.

I have been using FOLX for 2 years and love it. But since I changed to Catalina I keep getting an error message telling me I don't have enough disk space to download anything. I have 85 gb free so what the heck?

When I first got the program a couple of months ago, it seemed to work ok, not great but ok. Now it doesn't find hardly any of the search items and I have had to return to my older process of downloading. Really disappointed in the program

I’ve been using Folx for a couple of weeks now and it really is a wonderfully designed piece of software. There aren’t many software companies out there that I would actually start researching the other apps they have made, but I recommend checking out the other stuff Eltima makes too.

4 stars for the reputation but is it just me having issues not being able to download torrents ? I have the port open within the FOLX PRO app, latest version 5.11.13873 on latest macOS Catalina 10.15 but it simply won't start downloading the torrents files... pffff ;(
