Download Shuttle

Don’t know how many of you who are reading now this post have memories of the infinite time a download needed in times when all you had were dial-up phone lines or DSL begun coming to our houses. Parents screamed for the occupied line, obtaining a software was a conquer and magazines gave cd-roms or DVD to ease this process. Waiting for the next issue was the fastest way (in most of the situations) to have the newest release of your favorite GNU/Linux distro…

One of the most used trick was to use software that split, and then concatenate, your downloads. In that way you used the most of the resources available by your ‘repository’ and shorten the time needed.

Over this simple concept is build Download Shuttle, an utility for ours Mac OS X systems. The app is provided also with modules to install as extensions for Safari and Google Chrome so to become the default handler for all our download needs in the browser.

Also in these days the app is distributed for free – as in gratis – over the Mac AppStore.
