Bains Software on Tuesday released Envoy, a new download manager for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9. The software is designed to simplify HTTP, FTP and Gnutella-based downloads.
Envoy features the ability to resume transfers, even those started from other applications. It sports an integrated Gnutella client. Gnutella is a peer-to-peer file sharing network.
Envoy also has the ability to disconnect automatically, put the computer to sleep or shut down after the download queue is finished. You can schedule Envoy to start and stop its download queues; configure multiple download folders; play media files like songs or movies while downloading; and keep a download log to keep track of partial transfers and complete files.
Envoy costs US$18 to register. A downloadable version is available that expires after 30 days.
