A small, fast and simple download utility
aDownloader promises to impress with a very simple approach, which isn’t quite the kind of thing appreciated by more advanced users.
This particular program is being delivered as a very light package, which makes it appropriate for any Windows workstation, be it newer or older.
The real problem is that it doesn’t provide an impressive pack of features, boasting a single window that takes care of everything.
Once you launch the program you shall meet a very simple and clean window that’s actually the whole download manager. Which means that yes, you’re only required to input the URL of the file you wish to download, choose the output location and you’re done.
A progress bar is also available to show you the overall progress of the download, but nothing more, not even transfer speed or time remaining.
As you can see, everything’s pretty basic, so the lack of a help file shouldn’t change things too much. The most important drawback is however the lack of important features, such as browser integration, clipboard monitoring or segment downloading.
All in all however, if you are tired of downloading files with your browser and you’re looking for a simple app that does exactly the same thing, aDownloader might be the solution. Otherwise, it’s just a tool that’s too basic even for the very beginner.
