What is NZBVortex?

The small and efficient NZB client for OSX, optimized for performance and ease of use.
NZBVortex is very feature complete and extremely tuned for optimal download speeds and minimal system resource usage.

Just search for or add your desired NZB then let take NZBvortex control: it will download the minimal required data to complete the download, uncompress, cleanup and move the download to your desired location. No overflood in settings or info: we take care of all the technical stuff in the background.

A real set-and-forget download application: add a NZB and NZBVortex will take care of the rest.
