Pull October 2010
Advantages of a portable app
You are not required to go through the installation process, as this program is portable. As a result, unlike installers, it is not going to add new items to the Windows registry and hard drive without your approval, and it will not leave any kind of remains after its removal.
It is important that you also know that by placing the program files to an external data device, you make it possible to run Pull on any computer you have been granted access to, by simply clicking the EXE file.
The interface you come by encompasses a minimal and pretty well-organized build, as it consists of several buttons, and a few panes that let you view files currently being downloaded, not played episodes and added podcasts.
It becomes quite clear that all user categories can find their way around it, including those with little or no previous experience with the IT world.
Adding podcast links, downloading and watching them
It is possible to add podcasts by simply pasting their URLs to the appropriate box and write them on different lines in order to separate them. You should know it is possible to set the program to automatically download the latest episode, thus increasing usability. In addition to that, OPML files can be used in order to import and export lists of podcasts.
This utility can also show you the items you are currently grabbing from the internet, along with name, episode and progress (percent), while it also remembers the episodes you watched and the ones you did not, and it displays a description of each item (if available).
To wrap it up, Pull is a pretty efficient piece of software through a user-friendly interface, a good response time and a few, yet useful options. It does not hamper the system’s performance, as the CPU and memory usage is minimal, and we did not come across any error, crashes or bugs in our tests.
