Download Shuttle is a blisteringly fast download accelerator and manager, and it’s free! All downloads made via Download Shuttle are multi-segmented, i.e., each file is split into many smaller parts that are simultaneously being downloaded. This ensures that the speeds you experience are a lot faster as your bandwidth is maximized.

Key Features:

- Faster speeds with multi-segmented downloads
- Download management tool that allows unlimited simultaneous multiple downloads
- Support for URLs that require authentication
- Pause and resume support for URLs that support it
- Drag and drop support for download links
- Support for http/https
- OS X Service to send a URL to be downloaded directly by Download Shuttle
- Quick Look support
- Slick and incredibly easy to use interface.

We've spent a great deal of time thinking about the details and after using this app for a few days, you'll begin to notice our small yet creative touches. We plan on a very active development cycle, so please spread the word and keep sending us your feedback!

Simply Works - Download Shuttle does what you want: it downloads fast. DS downloads faster than your browser, alone. DS gets files/pages from urls, directly; you do not need to open a browser. DS downloads files faster by splitting a target file into segments. DS downloads the segments simultaneously, then recompiles the full file. DS is a lightweight app; it demands little from your CPU. Simply, DS is a utility worth having. It adds convenience and saves time.

An essential tool in your arsenal - I have been going nuts downloading multipart video tutorials each over a GB. Safari would just fail in the middle of the download and is unable to recover from the failure. Permission denied errors it seems. I don’t get it, because this little app can consistently pick up if there is a failure where Safari would just give up. And the best part, it can chunk your downloads into multiple parts and download them all simultaneously. So if you have a fast connection but the server from which you are downloading throtles your speeds, this feature can really speed things up. Now, if only they could update the UI to be more in line with modern OS X design guidelines, this app would be a killer. And maybe a menubar interface would be sweet. Overall you can’t go wrong with this little app. I would happily pay to buy this. And it is free!

Great app that gets the job DONE! - Lately I have had a lot of problems getting files downloaded though the Safari browser. Even for small 500mb files the browser was downloading files at just a few kb/s. Maybe because I am in China it is exceedingy slow and often the Safari browser download would just stop downloading. I installed Download Shuttle and the files downloaded exremely fast. It has really made downlioading files so much better and much much faster. If you are having trouble with slow downloads in the Safari browser then get this app!!!

Great Software - Incredibly efficient. Been working like a dream so far. Love it. As long as they keep this clean look and don’t harras the user like the other apps do, I will keep using it and even consider donating to the developer(which I never do except for Wikipedia). Nice work, keep it up.

Review by Wilreality

Great Upgrade! - This app has been a huge help! Where I’m at in the world, the internet isn’t always consistant, and this app not only speeds up downloads, but does a great job of completing downloads that freeze, stop, or have to switch connections online. All you have to do is copy the download link, paste it, start it… then it does all the work! You can also name the file, and pick the location. It’s a great app I use often.
