Editor's review

This is a download manager tool for the Mac.

This download manager tool for the Mac is very easy to use. All you have to do is click the link in the browser and Folx will start to download quickly. This will work with any of the popular browsers on the Mac. While this tool is made for giving you as much speed as possible, it does not contain too many esoteric features that are rarely used. The simple interface should not pose any problems for any user, even a complete newbie. One of the reasons this tool achieves higher speeds is that it is designed around threads that makes the overall operation fast. Downloads are split into multiple threads and the process goes faster. It offers an auto resume feature that helps downloads restart automatically at the correct position. This may be due to the site going down or you machine going offline. Downloads are sorted and stored efficiently so that managing the content becomes simple.

The downloaded files could be tagged and it will be easier to find them later. Files are sorted by these tags. You can see all items tagged with this specific tag by clicking any of those tags in Folx. This tool provides a convenient file manager that can find the downloaded content, no matter what. iTunes is integrated. Downloaded music and video goes to iTunes playlists automatically. Download tasks can be scheduled for your convenience. Exit behavior could be defined. You can specify if you want the system to be shut down, go to sleep or simply exit Folx. Throttle features are available. This is a useful tool.
