It doesn't do what it advertises--which is let you walk away from the computer while downloads run. It says it will load the captchas--it doesn't. It says it will resume downloads if they get interrupted--it doesn't. It doesn't load half the links you give to it--they merely disappear. If you use "Add links" it doesn't add them.

You have to tell it 300000000 times to use the directory YOU want, not the one IT wants.

They simply took the winblowz interface and forced it onto Mac, so of course it's not user friendly at all. There's a lot of redundancy and confusing terminology. There's no drag and drop for lists of links--it's drag and pray. Some links load. Some don't. You never know which you'll get!

This doesn't cut it for a Mac app. We expect better, clearer and WORKING designs. Don't put all our commands in a stupid window that can barely be read in a microscopic font that's uglier than your mother. There's a menu bar--USE IT!

Pros
  • NONE
Cons
  • EVERYTHING, because it's winblowz barely coded for Macintosh.
