Improve Speed and Reliability of your downloads with Download Accelerator Plus [Giveaway]


A Download Manager/Accelerator is a must-have tool for every internet user. There are many download managers and (so called) accelerators for Windows that promise to improve download speeds by 200% etc. But, very few download managers live up to their promise and Speedbit’s Download Accelerator Plus is one such download manager. DAP has been accelerating downloads for a very long time and more than 230 million users trust it. So, through this review you’ll know why DAP has become so famous and what features makes it stand out from the crowd.

Installation :

DAP InstallationThe installer of DAP not just installs the application but it will also promote other Speedbit products. If you want to install DAP only, then keep an eye on installation. If not, you may end up installing other products, toolbars, changed search engine settings of your web browser etc.


Interface and Configuration :

DAP InterfaceInterface of DAP is clear and easy to understand. All your downloads will be organized in two different ways.

  1. According to download status.
  2. According to category.

Category view will make it easy to browse the required downloaded file quickly.

DAP OptionsNot only that, DAP will offer so many options to the user so that he can customize it accordingly. Using these Options (Tools > Options) you can :

  • Select the desired mode of acceleration from available modes i.e. Normal mode, Above Normal mode, Accelerated mode, Broadband Optimization, High Accelerated Speed etc.
  • Set number of simultaneous downloads.
  • Create or edit categories to organize downloaded files into folders with respective categories as the folder names.
  • You can exclude certain file types, which you don’t want to download with DAP.
  • Scan downloaded files with your antivirus.
  • Schedule downloads and many more.

Security :

Most of the malware spreads from internet and it is very important to scan the downloaded files before using them. But, with DAP you don’t need that extra effort to scan them manually.  DAP analyzes the downloaded files with it’s unique Multi Antivirus technology (that includes renowned antiviruses like Kaspersky, Avira, NOD32, AVG, Avast etc). So, with that many best antiviruses on the list, it’s tough for malware to escape from DAP.

Other Features :

DAP comes with in-built internet browser and FTP browser. But they are not complete alternatives to such standalone applications. Their functionality is limited. For example, with FTP Browser, you can only browse and download the files from your server but you cannot upload files using DAP.

Making Use of DAP (Save Online Radio Streams etc) :

Number of features of a software doesn’t matter if the end user fails to utilize them. DAP is not just an ordinary download manager. It has so many powerful features and all you have to know is how to make use of them. So, we thought to give few usability tips on how to get the most out of DAP.

Save Online Radio Streams :

Many online radio stations (like xiph.org directory) gives .M3U playlists to users so that they can tune-in using their favorite media player. Usually what we do is, we open that .M3U with a media player like Winamp, iTunes etc and we’ll listen to the radio station. Now, let us see what happens if if open that .M3U file with DAP :

  1. To import .M3U file into DAP, go to File > Import > M3U playlist and then browse for .M3U playlist.
  2. Now, DAP will analyze that M3U playlist and it’ll list all the streams of that radio station.Download Online Radio Streams with DAP
  3. Just, select the songs you wish to save or use select all to download all radio streams.

I’ve just shown you a way to make use of DAP. There is so much to explore in DAP. The premium version unlocks more features like Private downloads, Extreme Acceleration, preview zip files even before they are downloaded etc. So, download DAP today and explore the end-less opportunities.

  1. WOW! Great giveaway. I need an download accelerator plus so I may download at a faster rate. I have Hudgesnet which is a internet satalite provider which is a joke. The speed is extremely slow and we are limited to a certain amount of downloads. This would speed up the process. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Download accelerator plus is the best download manager I ever used.
    I would like to win this because I need it and I love to use this software.

  3. DAP one of the best download manager, a veteran, expect the best, works good even the free vers. but much better if i can acquire  the premium vers. ,hope to win one ,really a great giveaway…..thanks alot…….

  4. Many download managers software provide a variety of features, but i feel DAP is the best one of all in terms of speed and durability. I will be really lucky if i get my favourite sofware in full version.

  5. DAP is one the greatest download managing software present (atleast in my
    opinion). It have used many other dowloading accelerating software but
    non of them could give me satisfaction, then i used its trial version and
    i was very much surprised to see how well it work,Then it thought if
    its trial version could works so well,then its paid version will be just
    awesomwe and since that today,i have been looking to get my hands on
    it. I just hope i would be one of them to get its license, that was very useful for me.

  6. DAP is a must have for me as I need to download large files on a slow connection and is sometimes frustrating. This program has a lot of useful time saving features which I really like for eg fast speed, pause & resume, auto mirroring speed boost, etc. Thanks.

  7. DAP are the closest competitor for IDM in my opinion. I have stop using it (DAP) long time ago because it did not integrate with my browser, hopefully they have got it fix by now. Would like to have a copy as it might come in handy as a good alternative for the current JDownloader that I been using at the moment.

    Thank again for this giveaway and please count me in this!

  8. Another great review done Samuel. I just want to know how this software compares with Internet Download Manager. If it’s any better than IDM please include me in the giveaway.

    • Both have similar features for most of the part, Mike. IDM can download streaming video, audio, pictures etc (with its Site Grabber feature) and DAP doesn’t have it. Whereas DAP has private downloads, download trace cleaner etc. which aren’t available in IDM. So, each of them have their own unique and good features. So, depending on our needs, you can choose any one of them.

  9. Thanks Sam for putting a nice review.
    Wondering what would private download be for??

    @Avi:disqus  – please count me in.

    Thanks, Grr

  10. I was always downloading Game Clients and watch Movies online. DAP is superb when it comes to downloading larger files, I can pause/resume it whenever I want. And it’s way too fast for streaming videos. Thankz alot.

  11. this software really different with other software which similiar with DAP.
    with DAP you don’t need that extra effort to scan them manually.  DAP analyzes the downloaded files with it’s unique Multi Antivirus technology (that includes renowned antiviruses like Kaspersky, Avira, NOD32, AVG, Avast etc). So, with that many best antiviruses on the list, it’s tough for malware to escape from DAP.

    and, I love it alot. because, I’m paranoid user and always downloading in many sites.
