Since the development of the original version of SABnzbd, both amateur and experienced Usenet users have agreed that it is one of the best pieces of software that came to the industry, revolutionizing the way binary files are handled and downloaded.
For those that have not yet been introduced to this smart piece of software, here is a brief introduction; SABnzbd is an open source Binary newsreader that permits users to browse and download binary content on almost every platform available today.
Because it is written in python, it is able to run on almost all operating systems. Owing to its Open Source Licensing and its performance, many developers have been inspired to work on the source code, providing extensions and add-ons that Â has led to the creation of a number of apps and some of the most commonly used ones are; nzbdStatus developed for Firefox, SABConnect++ for Chrome, and sick Beard integration.
SABnzbd has proven to be useful in making the management of binary downloads as easy and as fluid as possible with no human interaction. All you need to do is to download and install the app, then browse and add the .nzb files and SABnzbd makes sure that the file is automatically downloaded, verified, repaired, extracted and filed, automating all the steps that users had to manually do before.
While almost every provider of networking has been going to the direction of mobile apps and the portability of applications, SABnzbd is not going to be left behind in the race. They have just released a mobile version of their softwareÂ known as SABMobile that allows users to control SABnzbd from Iphones, IPod Touch, I pad, Mobile devices running the Android Operating system and Nokia mobile devices with proprietary OS.
Here are some of the things that SABMobile is capable of;
Now that™s a cool package of functionalities!
While SABMobile has been receiving favorable acclaim from users worldwide, to add the icing to the cake, it has just received approval in the iTunes App store where it is reportedly doing very well with a rating of 4.5 which is good indeed and prospects to be better as the popularity grows.
While we enjoy the capabilities of SABnzbd and SAbMobile, I can’t wait to see what this project is going to bring to our plates in the near future!
