editor's review





The transfer speed of any download can be improved if you are using a tool that is able to split the file in multiple segments and download them at the same time. Download Shuttle is a small Mac app designed to help you accelerate your downloads without having to deal with complex settings.

Unsophisticated and intuitive user interface

Finding your way around Download Shuttle should not be a problem, even for most inexperienced users. The app’s main window displays a list of your downloads, while the top toolbar provides buttons for basic functions, such as add or remove links.

Download Shuttle also includes an inspector window where you can visualize detailed informations about the download status of each segment, and comes with QuickLook support (you can access data about the downloaded file).

Quickly add new downloads to the manager

To take advantage of the Download Shuttle capabilities, you must start by adding the links you want to process. You can go through the “Add” button included in the main window, or you can simply drag and drop the link on top of the app.

In both cases, Download Shuttle automatically launches a new window that already includes the download URL, and enables you to change the output location, the file’s name, and the number of total segments. Note that  Download Shuttle is also able to handle URLs that require authentication.

Take into account that not all download links can be fragmented: the Download Shuttle tools might be obstructed by the host server. The same rule applies for the pause and resume functions.

Streamlined and powerful download management solution

Download Shuttle proposes simple solutions for managing multiple downloads at the same time and increasing the transfer speed. The application is able to split your downloads into multiple segments and have them downloaded all at once, can handle links that require authentication, and includes basic but efficient link management capabilities.
