The name says it all. Free Download Manager is a free app that helps you to efficiently download files from the internet at a much faster rate than the conventional inbuilt browser download managers.

Free Download Manager is useful to anyone who has any plans of doing some serious downloading.

It also allows users to download torrents, and this makes it an all-rounder when it comes to downloading. However, even though it can handle many kinds of downloads, it isn’t perfectly suited for downloading torrents.

When installed in a computer, it integrates itself into your web browsers so that all kinds of downloading tasks will be handled by the application.

Though the user interface is a bit clunked up, basic functions such as pausing a download or stopping it are easy to find.

Sometimes, Free Download Manager becomes challenging for new users because of its old-fashioned user interface.

Its competitors, on the other hand, have focused more on user appeal while slowly improving the functionality as well.

The one thing that Free Download Manager is good at is the fact that it has plenty of methods of downloading files from the internet. The torrent downloading feature, for instance, makes it possible for users to simultaneously download files from webpages and even from Peer to Peer networks.

Free Download Manager can additionally fetch downloads from other torrent clients such as uTorrent and Orbit.

Despite these impressive features, Free Download Manager lags behind when it comes to user appeal.


- Has a lot of features that aren’t included in most download managers

- Comes with a download scheduler functionality

- It’s one of the few free and efficient download managers on the internet


- The user interface is displeasing to most users

- It tries to focus on too many download options instead of perfecting on a few download options.
