What is Folx Pro for Mac

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.

I liked the app! The download speed is the same as written in the description for the application. Much more convenient than web torrent )

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! This app is absolutely useless. It takes about 6 minutes for the result to come back. The official website advertised 14-day refund. Contacted customer support within 5 minutes of my purchase and sent the requested screenshots as proof. No reply! Followed up after 2 weeks! They finally came back and said the app worked fine on their end. I went ahead and did a screen record of the 6 minutes and 40 seconds it took to come back with a search, and sent it to them. They replied that it was my internet provider that's slowing down speed!!!! I guess it was my fault that I lived in the wrong country for this app to work as advertised !!!

I have a MacBook Pro and the app works fine! It is very convenient that you can search for torrent files directly in the application

Ok I downloaded Folx from the official website. I was on Trial mode. With Folx, I downloaded one file to try it ( through https). No TORRENT yet. Suddenly, checking my Pfsense firewall I discovered a lot of connections attempts from my LAN (from my Mac) to differents forbidden ip (forbidden and blocked, listed on differents IP lists and known for spams/bad/scans/pirates/etc..). So I immediately installed Little Snitch on my Mac to find out which application is doing that See: https://imgur.com/a/w2n1GHA 470 differents ip and counting !!! What the hell is going on with this application ? ===> DELETED

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.
