As you perhaps know, there are several versions of Folx: FREE and PRO versions of Folx that we sell on our website (you can see their comparison here) as well as Folx GO and Folx GO+ versions at the Mac App Store.
Folx GO and Folx GO+ have the same functionality. The difference is that in Folx GO you get basic functionality for FREE and PRO features separately as an in-app purchase, whereas Folx GO+ doesn’t offer a free version and you pay for the fully functional app upfront.
Please, note that MAS versions of Folx (GO/GO+) and Folx PRO from our site are different products with different sets of features and different prices. So let’s compare these two products so that you can choose the best option for you.
As you can see from the below comparison chart Folx from the Mac App Store (GO/GO+ versions) has several limitations comparing to the Folx PRO version from our website. Due to Apple sandbox restrictions, GO versions of Folx do not download torrents and videos from YouTube and they don’t have torrents search feature. Also Folx GO/GO+ can’t control your Mac after finishing the scheduled downloads (shutdown your Mac, put it into sleep mode or quit the program).
