The conveniences of a portable app

The installation process can be skipped, as this product is portable. This means that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be affected in any way, and that it is not going to leave any kind of remnants behind after its removal from the hard disk.

Inputting detailed information, downloading and viewing slideshows

First and foremost, you are required to input the URL you want to watch to the utility, select the output directory and input the time interval at which to check for new items. You should know that you can add an unlimited number of such entries, and you can stop or resume all of them with just a click of the button.

In a separate pane, you can view the all watched threads as a list, along with ID, name, number of downloaded pictures and status. Once some images are downloaded, you can start a slideshow, with a custom wait time and background. It is also possible to pause it and manually go to the next or previous photo.

Bottom line

To conclude, 4chan thread Downloader/Previewer/Watcher is a pretty decent piece of software when it comes to keeping track of particular 4chan threads that interest you. The interface is accessible to both power and novice users, the response time is quiet good and the amount of resources required is insignificant.
