The presence of your software on Lifehacker means that: a) your application is really great; b) it will be seen by thousands of people and c) the article, which describes your software, can be reposted by hundreds of websites! And Folx IS PRESENT on Lifehacker!

Sounds like “WOW” : ) Actually, “WOW” we thought (and said) when we found an article about Folx on Lifehacker! 10034 users were interested in Folx and the number of views increases each day (this fact pleases us a lot).

Make yourself comfortable and enjoy reading Lifehacker, reviewing Folx

“Folx has most of the features you’ve come to expect from something like Transmission, but it also has a lot of less advanced (but very convenient) features built-in.”

“Folx also contains a number of ways to add torrents to the download list – instead of having to do everything manually, you can just double-click the link to any torrent file in your browser and Folx will automatically download the torrent and add it to your download queue. This is especially useful for browsers that don’t support auto-opening of downloaded files, or web sites that don’t contain magnet links.”

“What’s especially awesome about Folx is that it acts as a download manager for your browser, too—just like adding torrents, all you need to do is double-click on any link in your browser and Folx will start downloading the linked file using all of the aforementioned settings, like file organizing.”

“Folx also splits your direct downloads into threads, allowing them to download faster—plus, if a download fails, you can resume it at a later time. It’s a really nice way to manage all your downloads (torrents and non-torrents alike) and increase your download speed at the same time.”
