Have been using the Phoca Download modules and components for a few years. Our web serves documents to potential and existing customers, and the Phoca Download does the job.

The author is very responsive, and I have seen the software improve with every release. I highly recommend it.

This is the simplest, most adaptable and responsive component for managing a downloads gallery that I've found, after testing many. It works wonders, does what it suppose, without any fuss. Easy to set up and adapt, excellent support. Love it!

I have used other download extensions in the passed but this is by far the best I have used.
I suggest this to other users. Also the support is great. Most of the time you will get an answer of the developers if you ask a question in the forum.
And all of this for a free component.

Trust me, I've used several extensions and this one made it way too easy... Piece of Cake.... Walk in the Park....
Wish to have an option to Push Ads / Custom Code between the Download List.

Hope this helps.

This component has been around since 1.5 and it has always been great. Upgrades have gone well, and it has been a reliable part of a number of sites.

I've been using this extension for years now and have it installed on all my sites that have pictures.

One site in particular has over 4,000 images and grows at about 100 images per month. It's absolutely rock steady and I highly recommend it.

The only shortcoming is when you add images, there's no quick and dirty way to single out the new files over the existing files--I do a browser search.

Anyway, it's a great extension and it's free. BTW, I've donated to the author and plan to donate again because it's so useful.

I will say three things about this extension.
1) Multi-Purpose Component.
2) Excellent Graphic User Interface (GUI),
3) Extremely Simple to setup and Use.
4) Comprehensive Documentation and Support.
I was looking for component for ringtones download for my site, and i was surprise the "Audio Player and Gallery" extensions does not have a single extension close to what i wanted so a friend recommended Phoca Download to me, at first i was not actually interested because i want my users to test the audio first (play) before downloading, and his responds was "it will take you a maximum of 15 minutes to set up and test so just try it" and i must confess it took me around 9 to 12 minutes if i guess right, and "Phoca Download" is 99.99999% of what i want. Honestly i was surprise a file download component can come with an audio player for previewing.

If you are developing a simple file sharing site to a complex file eCommerce site I will advice you to look no further. what amazes me most is it is COMPLETELY FREE with a comprehensive documentation and prompt support which most of the commercial extensions dont even offer.

I have even recommended him to add Showcase to his forum where people can exhibit what they have been able to achieve with such great, free and excellent component.
I will say thank you to the developer.

The site I am working on would be useless without this plugin/module. I needed to keep files behind the public_html wall for safekeeping, but allow credit card companies to have a URL to allow for download of the files. Phoca download did exactly that. The documentation is very well written.

I had a specific problem (I misread part of the docs), and posted in the Phoca forum. The programmer responded within a few days, and helped figure out my error.

He did this on his time, and without charge. When the site starts turning a profit, I am definitely directing some of it his direction, even if it wasn't required.
