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!

Brilliant, speeds up downloads so much

I am unlucky enough to have a super slow, like SUPER slow, internet connection at my home. We’re talking in the tens of kilobits per second.

Anyway, this app helps me reduce 6+ hour downloads to within an hour, it works incredibly well! Pretty much magic.

My only wish is that it were able to change the system settings so it worked on every download, not just the links you pass to it. E.g. at the moment I perform most downloads like normal, just click on download in my browser.

However, if I know the file is gonna be big, I copy+paste the link into download shuttle and it downloads it really quickly. However, copy+pasting across the link takes a few moments and distracts me from my workflow (even though it is extremely easy)

I wish download shuttle changed some system settings or whatever so it was the default downloader for everything

amazingly fast downloads

Using this app my downloads go from 1.5mb/s to 8 mb/s my line speed is around 80Mb/s so this is amazing. Otherapps seem to have issues joing downloads and give network timeout warnings. I have not experienced this using this app. Well done to the developers.

This app is free but I would happaily pay for it.

Just works!

I had never downloaded a vid before and had various "try this….. it should work" conversations with folk who probably know what they are talking about.
I went for a browse in the App store as I could not remember what all these clever people had told me by the time I sat down to sort it.
Download shuttle came up so I clicked the button and waited. Then I followed the instructions.
Result!!!!!! It works. No "should". It does.
Was it a deliberate ploy on the developer's part that it does not ask any geeky questions?
Was it a deliberate ploy on the developer's part that it does exactly what it is meant to do without any hassle?
