is a handy application that basically searches for music files on the Internet and downloads them. The program features a functional playlist manager and a nice and helpful audio player, which allows you to listen to a song even before you download it. Besides, the program allows you to download multiple songs simultaneously thanks to a “download manager” tool.
However, as soon as you run the program, it shows you an "Urgent Notification" window telling you that the program has temporary troubles with some popular tracks. Of course, this is a serious setback for MediaDrug
, though I had no problems with any of the searches I tried. The program offers a modern and pleasant user interface which is divided into three sections ─ the search panel, the playlist manager, and the audio player. When you make a search, the results are presented classified in a hierarchically way. This is very useful, as the program is capable of finding not only individual songs but also entire albums.
Once you have found your desired song or album, you can drag it into the playlist area, from where – as said – you can play back your songs before actually downloading them. Actually, you can listen to your tracks even from the search panel. Of course, the program still needs to download a song to play it back, but MediaDrug
manages this internally as a user-transparent process. On the other hand, when you select a song for download, this is added automatically to the list in the download manager, which runs as an extra tool on a separate window.
Finally, I will mention that the built-in audio player provides several interesting features. For example, it allows you to repeat your entire playlist indefinitely or play the songs in random order. Moreover, the player includes a helpful equalizer with a number of predefined styles, though you can also set your own levels, of course.
In short, MediaDrug
allows you to search for music files and to listen or download them in a practical and funny way. Unfortunately, due to its non-existent help system, it may take you a while to find out how to download songs.
