Download Thingy, still working on it but getting closer.

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Some updates to the status of Download Thingy.

Even the fact that i dont have a lot of time lately, i’ve been working on it and I plan to release a prototype version to interested alpha testers soon.

What has been done:

  • Completely “in house” CoreFoundation based download engine.
  • Queues, downloads and segments are GCD (Grand Central Dispatch) driven now.
  • No more libCurl.
  • Custom “.thingy” container format for storage and sharing of file downloads (and some other things).

Keep an eye to this blog if you are interested to try this application or email me directly at diego (at sign here) massanti.com.

Cheers!
