Speed Download Lite ships
Yazsoft on Thursday unveiled a stripped down version of its download manager, Speed Download Lite 1.0, offering users a simplified, browser-integrated experience, and also celebrating the release with a 3G iPhone giveaway. The app features the core functionality of Speed Download, with a redesigned, customizable interface, while retaining the app's "turbo-charged" download capabilities. Speed Download Lite 1.0 is available for $20 from Yazsoft.
Speed Download Light 1.0 allows for live bandwidth throttling, queued file scheduling, and an iTunes-like minimized mode, while also featuring several other features.
Yazsoft is running a promotion on Speed Download Lite, offering users a free license for every one they purchase, while also running a 3G iPhone giveaway from June 12th until July 11th. The contest is open to anyone who can email a contest entry to the company, with or without purchase, with three iPhones available. If users purchase Speed Download during this period, they received three entries per license purchase for the contest.
