    What would be the best app for downloading rapidshare files?
    Can Transmit or Transmission apps do the job?

    They download in the browser just like any other file you might download. You don't need any software or anything.

    ... or you can use JDownloader.

    You don't need to wait for downloading one file after one if you pay for a premium account. Depending on what you will use it for it's worth as rapidshare is very fast and now less common than a few months ago having been accused of hosting mainly pirate files. Filesonic is now facing this problem and terribly slow on busy hours.

    To be frank with you guys, i want the rapidshare downloader to be completely integrated with OSX as far as looks and usability is concerned, from the screenshots i saw of JDownloader i wasnt so much impressed to be honest.
    An example of great OSX adaptation would be the latest version of "Transmit" (if one wants to see what i mean). That little app just rocks, it totally deserves to be an Apple application!
    So might there be another downloader with similar specs? ;)

    If you have a premium account you can use something like Speed Download. Otherwise JDownloader is the only thing out there. I know it looks awful and feels just as bad, but it does the job perfectly well, and to be frank if there was something better I would be using it and wouldn't have suggested JD at all.

    Jdownloader

    I noticed downloading files from Rapidshare generated a tonne of spam e-mails. I contacted Rapidshare, and got the canned "run virus software" response.

    I've since moved to downloadcenter.net to much success. It's a pay service. You just copy/paste the URLs into the site, and then download everything from their server. Abetter option (to me) than getting an extra 100 e-mails about enhancement pills, replica watches, 6 pack abs solutions and foreign women wanting to meet me. I was also not chuffed to see my e-mail address being sent, as the sender, to heaven knows how many people.

    I have always used Speed Download. Has a login for RS and will even upload files.

    Jdownloader works as well and has logins for all the most popular file hosting sites. Jdownloader even unpacks .rars.

    Ok guys ive downloaded JDownloader... :mad: what a crappy app, so out of the Mac philosophy, looks like a windows app even by the way it installs, i was totally disappointed to say the least. Ill continue to be on my quest for a better macOSX integrated app cause this one just doesn't have the beans. Still thanx for the guys that were interested in my search and recommended it :)
    Anything else i can have a look at that might be worth it?
