TwistLoad is free internet download manager to download files from internet. TwistLoad lets you use the direct download link to download the files from the internet. You can pause, resume, and delete the download process anytime.
Why I really like TwistLoad is because it is really simple to use and you just need to have the direct download link. Of course, there are other powerful free internet download managers (mentioned later in this article) that offer more features like compatibility with web browsers, option to prioritize or assign categories to downloads, option to preview the file after download is finished, remote control etc. but, TwistLoad is very simple to use and that’s all. It does not offer many features.
An interesting feature that TwistLoad offers is that you can resume the download even after shutting down the computer. Of course, the download can also be resumed after the software is closed and opened again.
I have tested TwistLoad for downloading files in Windows 7 for this article though it is available for Mac OS and Ubuntu as well. Below I have posted a screenshot of TwistLoad in which you can see a download in progress.
