Ambiance Tray Icons


Radiance Tray Icons


First of all, I would just like to apologize again for missing this before the release of 1.10.3 but unfortunately we didn't so until we can address this and release a permanent fix, I decided to package up the icons separately for those who would like to use them as soon as possible. This download is just a quick fix and will require root to overwrite the existing icons. You'll find the download and the How To after the break...

uGet Feature List Updated, a lot bigger than I thought PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 19 January 2013 08:12 | Written by Michael Tunnell

I'm going to admit something to you all here...I can be kind of lazy sometimes. I know...shocking, right? Anyway, when I was creating the new website I noticed that the homepage wouldn't support all the features of uGet so I just listed about 10 and lazily ended it wtih "many more". When it came to adding all the features to the Features page, I took the lazy route and just copy and pasted the homepage text on that page. (I know, what is the point of the page then)


Yesterday I was hanging out on Twitter and noticed a lot of people posting about all the different features provided by various Linux download managers as if there a ton of features being provided and I couldn't help but think "well that is only a third of what uGet has"...then it dawned on me, "I never freaking added the features list to the Features page". Of course, I started to get a bit mad at myself but instead I decided to just get it done so everyone can see the VAST list of features available in uGet.


So if you go to the Features page now you will see an exhaustive list but still not complete list. Honestly, there are a couple features in uGet that I am not 100% sure of what they do so once I figure those out I'll add those too.


For our loyal uGet advocates who try to share the app with their friends and family but get the response of "there aren't many feature" to you I would like to say "Sorry about that, maybe now you can blow their minds."


Do you have a comment or feedback about this blog post? Want to yell at me for procrastinating on this for so long?

Please do so in the comments section below...

Hello uGetters,

We are looking for requests and ideas for tutorials we can make for any and all uGetters.

The problem with being so close to a project is that you know how everything works and sometimes don't see what may or may not be difficult to use or find.

If you have a question about how to do something...or if you have an idea for a tutorial you think we need to do whether it be for you or just something you think needs to be address please let us know below.

Thank you for your help and thank you for using uGet!

Note* - You do NOT need to be a member of the site/forum to make suggestions on this page.
