Softpedia Editor's Review for Mipony
A tool to download files from hosting files like megaupload, rapidshare, etc
Written by Sorin Cirneala on May 11th, 2012
Mipony is a download manager that allows you to automatically detect and process the download links from web hosting websites. You can use the application in order to manage the downloads and to organize the files on your hard disk.
The program monitors the Windows clipboard and automatically adds the detected links to the download list. You can also use the browser from the program interface in order to open a certain webpage and to scan it for compatible links. If multiple links are detected you can select the ones that you want to download.
The downloads can be started directly from the Internet Explorer's interface if you choose to integrate the application in the context menu. All the detected links are automatically checked in order to view if the file is available. The program prompts you to agree with the website conditions and to enter the CAPTCHA characters required to start the download.
You can store the login information for Premium accounts in the program's Options window, but it can download the files even without a paid account. If the website requires a waiting period, the program starts the download immediately after the time passes.
It can handle multiple downloads from more that one website at the same time. The program has the ability to pause the download and to resume it later if the website allows this action. You might encounter errors for the websites that require a CAPTCHA authentication.
The download speed depends on your Internet connection but you can optimize the program behavior by adjusting the number of simultaneous downloads and the maximum download speed. You can use the scheduler in order to start all to stop all downloads at a specified time.
With three simultaneous downloads the program needs about 110 MB of memory. The processor time is not significant and it has no impact on the computer performance. However, you can adjust the performance by reducing the number of downloads or file segments.
Overall, Mipony is a useful tool for the users that download a lot of files from free hosting websites. You need to look for another program if you need to manage downloads from other websites.
