Folx graduates to v2 beta, adds iTunes integration

updated 09:30 pm EST, Mon December 27, 2010

RSS downloading, smart groups of files, more

Eltima have brought out a public beta of v2 of their download manager and torrent client Folx, incorporating user requests and new features such as iTunes integration, auto-tagging, and an improved file manager that can download from RSS feeds and sort downloads using "smart groups." Buyers of the $20 pro version starting now will receive the beta and the finished v2 product for free.

The program is known of its ability to split downloads across multiple threads, theoretically speeding up the process significantly. In the free version, Folx features all its essential functionality, but limits downloads to two threads. The pro version adds up to eight additional threads, download scheduling, automatic smart speed control, and torrent search.

The new version can automatically add downloaded music and videos to specified iTunes playlists, including files auto-downloaded (or selectively downloaded) from RSS feeds, very popular with MP3 blogs. Users can also schedule downloads from RSS feeds. Music files that are downloaded can be auto-tagged, with users setting parameters or manually tagging as they prefer.

The beta is available by request, and all buyers of Folx Pro from December 23rd until the final v2 is released will be entitled to a free upgrade.
