"Everything a download manager can do and more"
The days of narrow bandwidths and dialup meant having to install download managers in order to accelerate our sluggish file downloads. Nowadays, it is true that download managers aren’t as critical as before but they can be put for good use. Having to start a download from scratch just because it suddenly stopped isn’t something most of us enjoy. This is where GetRight Pro comes in and provides users with a vast array of features, such as downloads logging, pause and start functions and much, much more. Let’s have a look at the useful features of one of the most popular download managers on the market.
Being a compact and small download manager, GetRight Pro has a setup kit of around 4MB and thus, the installation process is fast and smooth. You should be happy to find out that all of the available versions of the Windows operating system since 2000 are supported. GetRight Pro doesn’t come bundled with adware/spyware or other installed programs.
The key words that define GetRight Pro are simplicity and ease of use. One of the many strengths of GetRight is certainly its interface. Neatly organized and easy to use, the interface boasts a nice and colorful aesthetic to it. Stylish indeed! Novice users will have no problems using GetRight Pro, as the navigation is smooth thanks to the excellent placement of the control and buttons. If you know how to use a mouse and a keyboard, then you’re safe!
GetRight comes in two flavors, as there is a free version and a pro version. The version we are reviewing is GetRight Pro. Firstly, all of the features you’d expect to find in a download manager are present. Broken downloads can be resumed, your download speed will increase because the file is separated into smaller chunks, scheduled downloads and a lot more features are implemented by GetRight. It manages to efficiently utilize your bandwidth. What is more, the management of your downloads is done with relative ease as there’s always a pop-up message that alerts you when they are finished. GetRight Pro has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it stand out. It can be used for uploading files to a specific website and through the web access features, it can be controlled from anywhere in the world. Of course, you’ll need it installed on your computer to do that. In addition, GetRight Pro can be programmed to automate its features to your personal preferences.
GetRight Pro sports a great amount of functionality but, unfortunately, it does also have a few shortcomings. The switching between modes is rather annoying and it simply doesn’t work as you would expect. Secondly, there are times when the download resume doesn’t work properly and you can see the download starting from scratch.
There is no shortage of download managers on the market. Let’s have a look at some of the mot popular alternatives to GetRight Pro. These include the following tools: DownThemAll, Internet Download Manager, Orbit Downloader and Free Download Manager.
All in all, GetRight is a decent download manager that novice and intermediate users will surely appreciate.
