about Tucan Manager Jun 2011

Cross-platform and 'all OS supported' I imagine sounds tempting to developers, but it seems that many simply claim cross-platform and think that programming language can take care of all OS pairings, without much testing or more knowledge.

I tested this program in my Windows 7 PC and it trashed my file system with ghost folders, just because it's developer does not understand what he claims - Windows support

Comment by Visuex
about Tucan Manager Jun 2011

it is nice that it isnt a java app but overall it is terrible...the only thing I noticed that it did well was allow you to shutdown the computer on completion and control the max download speed. The biggest downfall is that it downloads from ONLY the supported file hosters...it doesnt support basic HTTP so if you have your own server it wont work with it. Overall this program is a 2/10 (2 because it only had 2 good things for it) Oh yea it says it can do uploads but when you click it you get an error that says "Not Implemented Yet" which begs the question of WHY IS IT THERE THEN?!?

Interface not as good as JDownloader or FreeRapid. As you can't multiselect or move links to your preferred order. One good thing is that this does not rely on JAVA.
