YourFile Downloader is that kind of app, created to ease your day when it comes to finding and downloading a specific piece of software.
It displays a minimalistic interface which does not contain any traces of distracting elements such as ads and does not leave room for confusion.
Using YourFile Downloader is easy. All you have to do is type the name of the application you want to download, hit Enter and from the list of results click the one you need. Choose the destination folder and wait for the download to finish. That’s it.
As far as functionality, its pretty straightforward and there are no settings to bother with. There are though two shortcomings that you definitely come across.
First off, the success of the search function relies on the name of the application you are looking for. If you want to download a specific PDF reader for example, you have to type its exact name to find it. If you use two or more keywords, you can come across applications that might not have anything to do with what you need.
In case YourFile Downloader doesn’t find any results, it gives you the possibility to start an alternative search. This will open an Internet browser window that will display results from across the world wide web. In a way, YourFile Downloader becomes “YourFile Finder”.
Secondly, YourFile Downloader uses third party download servers. It’s from these that you get your applications and the downloader has no control over them. So if a server is down, you might find yourself waiting for a download that will never start.
Moreover, the download speed depends on the Internet connection made available by your provider and having multiple active downloads, can greatly decrease the transfer rate. Fortunately, YourFile Downloader allows you to pause specific downloads so you can free up bandwidth.
Approach and idea wise, YourFile Downloader is on the right track but it needs improvements in the stability of the service it provides.
