An easy to use download management application for the Mac OS X that is able to process various types or files and comes with browser integration capabilities.
The built-in download manager that comes with most web browsers is not necessarily the best solution for managing your transfers, especially if you need to handle multiple files at the same time.
Folx is a Mac app that comes with a modern design and aims at making the entire experience a lot better and is able to automatically capture the download links from your browser.
Unobtrusive download manager that comes with web browser integration
The Folx installation process is reduced to a simple drag and drop to the Applications folder, but, for your convenience, the app also offers you the possibility to install browser extensions (Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera are supported) designed to streamline the downloads addition process.
Of course, the plug-ins installation is optional, and you can go online at any time to download the extension suitable for your browser (the link to the download page is easily accessible via the Preferences window).
Note that uninstalling Folx from your system does not interfere with the extensions in any way: you will have to manually remove them from each browser.
User-friendly interface that helps you to manage all your transfers
Folx comes with a modern design, and you will find your way around the application soon enough: the main area is reserved for the downloads list and via the right panel you can sort them by tags.
Moreover, via the Folx bottom toolbar you get to easily manage both the download and upload speed, so you can make sure the app does not take all your bandwidth.
Get full control over the download capabilities and work with torrents
In the Folx Preferences window you can specify how many tasks can be active at the same time, the default user agent, you can choose to disable or enable the “New task” window when adding a new download, or set up the default action when all downloads are completed.
Furthermore, you can set up HTTP, HTTPS, or SOCKS proxies, adjust the Scheduler activation time (available only in the Pro version), put up speed limits, add new tags to the list, or adjust torrents related settings.
Download manager that comes with a streamlined approach when it comes to handling transfers
Folx proposes simple solutions for quickly sending downloads to an intuitive user interface that allows you to easily manage your transfers. All in all, Folx will prove an useful addition if you need to handle a large number of downloads at the same time.
