NewsLeecher is the kind of tool you simply can't live without. It is a Usenet downloading application that allows you to download software, image, audio and video files in a few elementary steps.
Amongst its most cherished features we count the download manager / scheduler, PAR2 (parity archive volume set) support, automatic RAR extraction, SSL support and multiple simultaneous connections.
The user interface may seem complicated at first glance, so make sure to check the online forum first, in order to learn how it works. There are also a lot of tutorials available on the Internet, if you ever get lost in its functions.
Usage is not rocket science: first you need to set up a server, and then connect to it. Searching is done extremely fast, thanks to SuperSearch Service. The time it takes to download a file depends on size, number of leechers, and other factors, but it is generally fast.
NewsLeecher supports NZB files and multiple servers. It is possible to pause all active downloads by making just one click, and the application can be minimized to system tray. In addition, the software can automatically check, repair and extract any files you have downloaded.
NewsLeecher uses a high amount of CPU and memory during the downloading process, so don't expect it to be kind to your computer.
The fact of the matter is that NewsLeecher has developed an impressive fan base, and it’s got good chances of surviving its competitors. If we have caught your attention, then perhaps you should give it a try.
