When downloading files from the internet it is not uncommon to find that although you have a fast internet connection, certain downloads can take an age to complete. This is often because the server hosting the files you are trying to get hold of is overloaded with other downloaders, but Folx may be able to help.

By splitting the files you are downloading into multiple threads it is possible to download them faster. You have the option of prioritising downloads so you can start several files downloads and choose which you would like to complete first.

Any files you download with Folx can be tagged so they will be automatically saved to specific folders- you may want to save videos to one folder and images to another for example. With support for download resumption, you are able to switch off your computer whenever you want and pick up file transfers at a later time if required.

But Folx is more than just a download manager, it also features an integrated torrent client that can be used to download large files with ease. This means that there is no need to have two separate programs installed to handle torrent and regular downloads - Folx can take care of it all.
 

Verdict

As a download manager, Folx seems to make a real difference and the download management features are a nice touch. The bundled torrent client is an added bonus.
