jDownloader is a file downloader that lets you quickly and efficiently download files from file hosting services such as Mediafire, 4Shared, and others.

jDownloader is a simple file downloader that connects with such programs as Mediafire and 4Shared. It's a companion program to these big name file hosting services. One of the primary complaints about modern file sharing services is that the download speed is just too slow. This can be because so many people are using the service that it crowds the servers.

jDownloader works to speed up downloads using its patented system. You'll bypass some of the original program's servers altogether and enjoy your songs, movies, and music videos all that much sooner thanks to this renowned program. You can create more than just a single download. This is all about lists. By creating a long list of a certain download type, you reduce the amount of time you have to spend between downloads.

This is a feature rich download program. Among the most helpful are that you can download as many files as you want to without restrictions. There's no simultaneous download limit, a huge feature for a program like this. The standard download and pause feature is handy, in case there are some files you would prefer to download before others. This is a nice feature giving you more control over your downloads. You can assign IP addresses to any free account holder of any hosting service, putting you in absolute control of all your accounts in one place.

As with any program of this nature, there are still lag times at times. No program like this will ever escape that fact, but jDownloader holds its own as one of the most reliable programs of its kind.

Pros

  • Super fast downloads
  • Integrate as many hosts as you want
  • Unlimited simultaneous downloads

Cons

  • There is a lag at times
  • As always with this type of program, there might be bundled software that isn't always helpful
