FreeRapid Downloader 0.9 Update 4
A reliable solution to download media files
FreeRapid Downloader is a reliable file downloader that can grab content from RapidShare, Picasa, Facebook, DepositFiles, 4shared, to name a few. Its engine is based on a list of plugins that make it possible to download from specific websites. As such, it is not a general download manager (works only with supported domains).
The market is crowded with applications bent on downloading content from popular sharing and media websites. While many of them concentrate on a single service, FreeRapid Downloader is able to process data from a generous list of such websites.
Choose from a large variety of skins
The application was designed with simplicity in mind, thus beginners and professionals will be able to enjoy the experience equally. Not to mention that it doesn’t require installation and the archive that holds all the files is portable.
While it may impress feature-wise, it fails to stimulate the eyes. Its appearance is plain simple and even if we do not judge a book by its covers, we dare say that a more appealing approach would greatly contribute to its popularity. Comfort comes from the generous selection of skins that prevent you from getting bored.
Quickly downloads from a breathtaking amount of websites
Amongst its most notable features is the support for multiple simultaneous downloads from different services, the automatic link detection (by closely monitoring the clipboard), the automatic shutdown options, CAPTCHA recognition and the support for streamed content.
During our tests, it performed flawlessly. Compared to similar software, it’s faster as far as the download speeds are concerned.
To end with
To conclude, FreeRapid Downloader is a good choice if you’re looking for a download manager specialized in sharing websites. The list of supported services is quite reach, so you might be in for a treat if you give it a try.
