btw It wouldn't be a bad idea if PF featured the database collection in a ready to download Ketarin setup

I'd like that, too (very much). :mrgreen:

Ketarin is splendid in the way it interacts with Filehippo.com and I have secretly wished more software repositories would go that way...

You may want to check DDownloads out.

Thanks for the tip, Baas. Cool app! 8)

Beginning niggles:

- App set not configurable(?);

- DDownloads is immature (2 months old?);

- That Metro look and a not very user friendly UI (see below*);

- Heavy (and somewhat confusing) site.

* For instance, "Show this window always after clicking on App" should be ticked on by default -- although it's shown on the main screenshot, not everyone will realize there are a load of program options on the entry context menu...

Also, the 'Signatures' file format should be extensively documented in a straightforward way.

Last (but not least), TPFC isn't listed anywhere... :(

Seems quite a few applications are opting for using the "Windows 8 icon tile system".

Does support running commands or application after download? Important if you want to extract with 7-Zip UniExtractor. What I'd remark no dependencies, seem to have better portability. What I'm missing in the application updaters/downloaders features is to setup mirrors.

PD: If there's enough quorum, I would be more than interested in collaborate to bring PF Application Database to Ketarin.

DDownloads v3.0 released (changelog is at http://www.ddownloads.net/index.php/blog/241-ddownloads-v3-0-released).

Best news is the initial metro look has now been discarded. :mrgreen:

This program hasn't seen an update since Midas posted about it above, but I went ahead and split it off from the original thread.

The program does look really interesting and is a welcome addition to a series of application collections like Ninite (and others).

EDIT:

A few additional notes:

* The program requires a donation for commercial use and to turn off adware, though I didn't see any ads.
* It's a little light on details for it's database. Reminds me a bit of what Symenu's developer was trying to do with SPS.

A program synopsis and screenshot:

Quote:
