Automatic repair and extract of downloaded binaries
  You no longer have to check, repair and extract your downloads by hand. All of these tasks will be handled by GrabIt automatically! Fill up your batch and leave your PC running. When you come back all of your downloads will be ready to be used.
SSL secure connection support
  GrabIt supports the ability to fully encrypt all your traffic to the Usenet server with industry standard SSL technology!
NZB file support
  GrabIt has full integrated support for the well known NZB format. Just double click on a NZB file on your desktop and all the files that are described in the NZB file will automatically be downloaded by GrabIt!
Easy to use and familiar looking user interface
  Care has been taken to make the downloading of binaries as fast and easy as possible. This is why most people love GrabIt.
Fast selecting, downloading and decoding of binary attachments
  See a binary you want, select it and GrabIt does the rest! It will download and combine all parts and decode your binary to the location you specified.
Download and decode multiple articles at once
  Download up to eight articles at the same time! Don't waste valuable online time while waiting for a binary to decode! GrabIt will decode in the background so the downloading will only stop when you want it to!
Pause function to free bandwidth
  GrabIt is fast! Almost too fast for some people! That is why it can sometimes be difficult to download from the Internet with other software while using GrabIt. No problem! Just hit the pause button, download your stuff and hit the pause button again! GrabIt will resume the download like nothing happened!
Exact resume
  Don't waste time and bandwidth downloading data again and again! GrabIt remembers where you stopped or paused your download and will resume from the exact same article.
Advanced error checking
  GrabIt continuously monitors incoming data while downloading. This insures that binaries are correctly downloaded and avoids having to download all parts again to fix a communication error in the middle of your binary. GrabIt can even repair and recover from some common errors without downloading extra data.
Multiple server support
  With GrabIt you can use all your favorite newsservers within the same session! Whether you want to work with 1, 10, or thousands of newsservers, with GrabIt it's a breeze.
Batch overview
  Watch all important processes from within the same view! GrabIt shows you:
  • download speed;
  • items, bytes and time downloaded;
  • items, bytes and time remaining;
  • exact status of all entries in the batch.
  • Find option and Filters
      You hate going through thousands of posts that you already downloaded to find the one binary you haven't got? With the advanced filters and find options in GrabIt you won't have to! Hide or show the articles you already downloaded. Match thousands of binaries and newsgroups with multiple keywords, with GrabIt it's done in seconds!
    Incremental group update
      Don't download the same headers time after time! The Incremental Update feature of GrabIt is the fastest way to download new headers.

    We are experiencing a routing problem in one of our datacenters. So some people will not have the latest search engine results and some people who purchased a new account in the last few hours will not be able to use it yet. We are working on a fix right now.

    UPDATE: Problem is fixed. All accounts have been created and the search engine is up to date again.
