Ratings and Reviews
Missing Par Repair Capability
NZBin does not repair using PAR file only PAR2 files. Although it does download the PAR files it does not use them to repair any errors in the download. You therefore have use other programs to repair the download. This is not a problem but it would be nice to have this capability build into the App. This is not a complaint only an observation. All in all it is a great App especially since it’s free.
Developer Response ,
Please try our new product Usenetic.
It has many more features including a Usenetic search function up to 10 years of posted articles.
Looked at this while looking for an NZB downloader, this is good to go. Works as it says it will and has some more advanced options that I would consider as “advanced”, auto repair, smart download of PAR2 file etc. Can’t argue with the price, agree with another post that I read hoping there would be a light color scheme added but otherwise a solid 4 stars!
Dont know when its working
Therre is a setting to show notification messages but in Sierra nothing happens so you can not tell when it is downloading or finished. There is no indicator on the dock icon either so you are blind as to what it is doing.
Otherwise a great app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
