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

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!
