Downie

Category: 

Description of App: 

The ultimate video downloader for OS X. Downie may seem like a simple drag-and-drop app - and it is and isn't at the same time! It is designed to be simple to use - just drag and drop a link onto Downie and it will download the video on that site. It isn't simply another YouTube-downloader: Downie supports at this moment over 300 different sites ! The full list may be viewed in Downie's preferences, under the Sites tab. With each update, we add several new sites as per your requests - just send us a link to a web page that doesn't work and we'll most likely add it in the next update! Key features: • Supports many sites - currently supports over 300 different sites (including YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and the number is rapidly growing. • 4K video YouTube support - unlike many other YouTube downloaders, Downie supports HD video on YouTube, up to 4K. • Postprocessing - need your video in MP4 for iTunes? Or want just the audio track? No problem, Downie can handle this for you automatically! • Quick support - I respond to emails usually within 24 hours and often add support for requested sites in the next update. • Frequent updates - Don't wait weeks for new sites to be supported, or bugs to be fixed! Downie is updated about once a week with new features, sites supported, etc. • International - not only that Downie supports country-specific sites, it is localized. If your language is missing, contact us - we can offer you a free license in exchange for a translation.

Accessibility Comments: 

This app is still largely accessible, however interacting inside the list of currently downloading videos doesn't work as it should using VoiceOver. It is not a deal breaker and does not hamper the usability.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

This developer is possibly one of the most supportive Mac developers I have come across. Sites are added within hours of them being requested and I'm sure the few accessibility issues there are he can fix.
