Xtreme Download Manager
Xtreme Download Manager is designed to be a simple to use application that can help you download various filetypes faster than usual.
The application utilizes dynamic segmentation algorithms along with data compression to perform the downloads. It also supports HTTP, HTTPS and FTP protocols which make it usable under all kinds of Internet providers.
Xtreme Download Manager displays a user-friendly interface that resembles that of other applications which serve the same purpose. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it does share the features that make it accessible to all kinds of uses, regardless of their computer use experience.
To add a link to the application all you have to do is perform a copy action from the browser and the link is automatically added to the downloader. Well, most of the times. In some cases you have to paste the link into the address section. Also, when adding a new download, you can enter the name of the file, choose its destination folder and if required, enter the username and password for the service you are using to download. You can very well choose to grab the file now or schedule it for later.
The application keeps tracks of all the downloads and stores them in folders marked ‘Unfinished’ and ‘Finished’. This way, you can access the file folders, pause the download, restart it or refresh the link if needed.
When dealing with an over-night download, you can set the application to execute various commands (which you have to insert), as well as make it hung up the modem or shutdown the computer. A more than helpful feature is the fact that you can connect your antivirus to the application and have it scan the files after they download.
All-in-all, Xtreme Download Manager is a handy tool to have around when you need to download any given number of files but in some cases you find that it freezes or the process becomes unresponsive. You can attempt to restart the download and that generally fixes it but it still is an inconvenience.
