Internet Download Manager 6.26
An easy way to turbo-charge your download speeds

Internet Download Manager is an easy-to-use tool that will quickly accelerate your download performance.

The program works with all the main browsers: IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, even Mozilla and Netscape. Once installed, clicking a download link in any of these will launch Internet Download Manager, rather than your usual browser "Save As" window. Then all you have to do is click the "Start Download" button and the program will grab a copy of the file at the maximum possible speed.

This process works by dividing the file up into pieces, and downloading each chunk simultaneously. While occasionally you'll see little difference, for the most part the technology makes a real impact on performance: it can easily be doubled, and the developers say you can see up to a 5x improvement.

The program offers plenty of extra features, too.

An integrated YouTube grabber helps you to download local copies of FLV videos from YouTube, Google Video and other video sharing sites.

A site spider allows you to, say, grab all the images from a specific website, or perhaps an entire site for offline browsing.

Download Resume means that, if the connection is lost, broken downloads can be resumed later from the point where they left off.

A built-in scheduler allows you to automate downloads at the time of your choice.

A Speed Limiter means you can restrict the program to use only a defined amount of your bandwidth, so that browsers and other web tools won't be reduced to a crawl. And the list goes on.

Problems? As there are some very capable free download managers around, Internet Download Manager's price looks a little high. We think it's better than the competition, though, so if you want the maximum download speeds and the most useful features then you really should give it a try.

Version 6.26 adds

- Added support for IPV6 Internet addresses
- Improved "Start Download Info" dialog
- Fixed a freezing problem when "save to" path is on a network drive
- Fixed bugs with IE and Firefox integration


Relatively expensive, but worth it - Internet Download Manager not only delivers great download speeds, but also includes a host of valuable extra features, each of which will save you considerable time and trouble

Your Comments & Opinion

Far to expensive

I really like this program but its just far too expensive when there are free ones to download. I wouldn't mind paying a one time fee but £20 or more every year!

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
