Download Shuttle is a blisteringly fast download accelerator and manager, and it’s free!

This ensures that the speeds you experience are a lot faster as your bandwidth is maximized.

What's New in Version 1.6
- Tweaked download time remaining logic
A good, fairly solid downloading app
Download Shuttle is a good little downloader workhorse app. It does the job pretty quickly – its segmented file transfer aspect (a 5-section split) is well-executed, providing faster downloads. While recent versions have improved, there are still some kinks that need to be worked out. For example, it occasionally downloads as one segment creating an empty file but thinks it downloaded the entire target file successfully. But that rarely happens now. Also, FIPLAB’s Download Shuttle User Guide and support aren’t so great, but at least user guide exists now – it didn’t for a while. However, it was basically easy enough to figure out how to use it on my own. Lastly, for some unknown reason, when I first started using this app, it sort of didn’t work at all. Maybe it was an early version, but it actually felt as though the app had to get used to my computer – once it did, though, its performance improved greatly. So you might need to be a little patient at the beginning.
Complaints aside, I like this app a lot and gladly recommend it.
I was searching for this app a long time, thank you. However, the time remaining needs a fix ;) the time remaining is the time needed to complete the 6 segments, it is not the sum of time of all segments, for e.g. if one segment needs 1 min to complete all segments need ~1 min, then the time remaining is 1 min not 6 min to complete.
Made my fast downloads even faster!
Simple and effective, especially with the browser extensions. My only suggestion would be to add keychain access for automatic authentication with an option to enable a popup that requests permission once per session. With that feature, I’d bump it up to 5 stars for sure.
