iGetter

Version 2.9.7

Download manager and accelerator.

iGetter overview

iGetter is a powerful, full-featured download manager and accelerator.

iGetter can greatly improve the speed of your downloads using segmented downloading.

In addition it allows auto resume on broken downloads, queue filtering by various criteria, site explorer, history list, scheduling downloads for low traffic periods, auto redial on broken connection, auto hang-up and shut down on completion, and much more.

What’s new in version 2.9.7

Updated on Nov 26 2019

Version 2.9.7:
  • Optimized for Safari 12 and Safari 13+.
  • Implemented new Safari App Extension, using the new API introduced in Safari 12. It adds "Download (all) with iGetter..." contextual menus commands. Since Safari 12+ removed support for NPAPI plugins, and didn't introduce new extension API for download observing (i.e. when a download link is clicked and the download is started in the browser), currently no such functionality is present in the new extension.
  • Moved to Digital River GmbH as our e-commerce partner, since their subsidiary eSellerate (our previous partner) is being closed down.
  • Fixed an issue with the recently notarized Firefox and Chrome, which won't transfer downloads to iGetter through the iGetterExtension. For this, reworked iGetterMessagingHost's method of interaction with iGetter, since the previously used AppleEvents method is disallowed by default in the newly notarized Firefox and Chrome.
  • Digitally signed iGetterMessagingHost.
  • Implemented new "com.presenta.iGetter.downloadUrls" notification through the CFNotificationCenter, for receiving download URLs, as an alternative to the AppleEvents.
  • iGetter WebExtension for Firefox now shows an alert when iGetter couldn't be found on its usual location (either moved or deleted).
  • Fixed an issue that iGetterMessagingHost doesn't identify Firefox, when transferring downloads to iGetter.

wow.. i've used Transmit 5 and Yummy FTP but iGetter is ten times faster becasue it supports accelerated downloads. Its incredible the devs haven't updated this app with a modern UI (it is absolutely horrible and unintuitive).. but it does the job better than the most modern FTP solutions.. i spent 30 minutes just trying to figure out how to work with FTP (you use ftp://(address) ) in the site manager in the preferences.

I compared iGetter 2.9.4 with Folx 5.0 and since I posted a review on the Folx page, I think that the results may be interesting for the iGetter users as well.

I downloaded 5 times with each app, iTunes12.4.1.dmg from the Apple servers (alternating Folx and iGetter, both with two threads). The result is:

1. iGetter is faster than Folx with a difference of avg. 48 sec. I measured the elapsed time with a chronograph app, because Folx has no Elapsed time value (except by extracting dates in the the Log).
2. iGetter speed is stable and Elapsed+Estimate times are correct. Folx speed varies so much that I can't see any usable speed/estimate time value. Folx downloading stalls and fluctuates constantly.
3. iGetter shows a lot more information about the finished downloads (including referrer web page, avg.speed, elapsed time, finished date). Folx shows only file name and size.
4. All iGetter functions can be tried in the unregistered version for unlimited period. Folx Pro features (i.e. more than two threads, speed control, scheduling) have no trial.

You may compare both apps for yourself, but iGetter seems more mature than Folx (comparing the features that exist in both apps).

Simply wonderful. That's all I have to say. When certain downloads fail or are very slow in other download managers or web browser I turn to iGetter. It works first time, every time. I also like the verbal notification when the download completes. I've owned iGetter since November of 2001 using versions through 1.9.5 and versions through 2.9.4. That's over 14 years!

I thought I would try it again since there was an update, but it still has major problems. It doesn't work with Chrome. You have to click the plugin every time to allow it, and it destroys files and your ability to download from sites that regulate their downloads, (like uploaded.net & rapidgator), and there doesn't seem to be any way to exclude it from these domains, so you simply lose the ability to download from them anymore. I removed it and may try again some day if these issues are addressed.

I discovered iGetter about a week ago. Were it not for some glowing recommendations I'd heard, I never would have tried it. Why? Because it looks like a throwback to OS 10.0. Those garish coloured buttons have cheap developer written all over them! However, this is definitely one of those few instances when looks are deceiving. What I like about iGetter is that it downloads everything from everywhere without causing strange errors. I really don't have to think about it too much. What I don't like about it (aside from its look) is that it doesn't download different file types to different locations. Of course you can select download locations, but it's nice when apps do this automatically (well, it's nice when it works). I'm also not sold on the $25 price tag. Maybe if it was a bit more feature rich - a bit more modern with tagging capabilities, say - I'd pay that. $10 would be fair.

I must admit, I never expected this one time category king to see another update so gave up on it ages ago. If developments keeps up I might just dust off that old license, which works so thank you dev for not making fools of us all by updating and then charging for the "new" version of iGetter. Hopefully these updates become more frequent and I find a need for the app again as this was always the most reliable DL manager for OS X imo.

Good DL manager but still no support for the most recent versions of Google Chrome (it's my main browser) ... and Chrome v22 has been released some two months ago. Please don't tell me that Chrome developers broke the plugin, they dropped Carbon support because those API are old and will be soon deprecated even by Apple, they were mostly intended for the Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X API transition, all recent apps use Cocoa.

iGetter support states "Current iGetter version should work fine on Lion. However, v2.8.7 is not compatible with Safari 5.1 and Firefox 5". Since Safari 5.1 is part of Lion this means that it does not work yet. Presenta offers a silly workaround which includes turning off the features that I suspect most users took advantage of to make iGetter useful. Here is a link to the Presenta Bulletin Board regarding Lion: http://www.igetter.net/forums/showthread.php3?threadid=1363

Does what I want, i.e. 'only' downloading for Safari and other browsers. By the way, if anyone's wondering about the not really stellar overall rating of 3.5 stars: the 1-star ratings are on page start on page 3 or 4, back in 2005. iGetter never got to v.3, so it's all accumulated since I-don't-know-how-early.
