    Review Ares

    Ares Galaxy is one of those historical programs, one of the first options that developers launched to be able to download music on our computers. And although today it has gone a little out of fashion, it is well worth talking about it. Indeed, we refer to software that has been created for users around the world to share their music libraries or other files, thus accessing different content according to their tastes.

    This program is one of type P2P or peer-to-peer, i.e., that feeds on users who are part of it and that when they are connected, they can get files from others and provide others with their own content. Thanks to this software, it was possible for a very long time, and still is, to search and download a massive amount of files without major computer knowledge.

    The ease of use of Ares Galaxy is precisely one of the reasons behind its success. It is enough to download and install the program, generate a user in just a second, and begin to track those contents that interest us through the Search section. The more users connected to the platform, the greater the chances that you will be able to get interesting material related to your search.

    In just a couple of minutes, the search engine of this program will allow you to access a list view of all the contents that you have available for download, and that could be useful for you. These contents can be organized in the way you prefer, although usually, what the system does is place them from the one that has more chances of being downloaded to those that could present delays or problems during the download.

    Of course, in the same way, there are some files within this P2P download system that we can easily download because they are known searches or very famous musical themes; and then there will be others that will be much more complicated to get. But remember that as everything depends on who is connected at the time, you should try several times before giving up on finding the content you are looking for.

    And once you have downloaded that video or song you were looking for, you don't need to install a player, as Ares Galaxy has one integrated. Although it is not a complete audiovisual content player in the world, it is easy to take advantage of the fact that we already have the program open through its tab system, and we can switch in moments from the list and status of downloads to the playback of what we have already downloaded.

    And while we're talking about the tab interface, how is the aesthetic and visual section of Ares Galaxy? Rematadamente bad, to deceive us. We are undoubtedly facing an interface that is unattractive and very old, as it has been the same for years. However, we believe that it is not necessary much more. This program complies with its mission without fanfare, and we think it's enough for this category of applications.

    Anyway, we think it's fair since we mentioned how little colorful this program is that its developers leave us several skins for us to change its appearance. Although none of them is much more praiseworthy, at least we can customize the software interface in a way that we like more than the original.

    A not minor detail regarding the download speed of this program, which is good, has to do with the fact that we can download a single file from several sources at the same time if several users can share it simultaneously. Although this will not happen with all files, not even with most of them, if you come across this possibility, we recommend that you do not let it pass you by.

    At the same time, this software allows you to download multiple files at the same time. Let's say you want to download several songs to make a list for your next trip. Then you can add songs to the download queue, which will be accumulated and enabled as others are finished. The number of songs that can be downloaded together is determined by you, although keep in mind that the more songs you have, the slower the download speed of each file.

    Lastly, this program also has an integrated chat, actually a chat room. You can get in touch with other users, and that usually have a name according to the topics discussed in each of these conversations. While the program's developers hardly regulate these chats, sometimes we can find exciting exchanges with other users.

    Does this application have some weaknesses? Yes, not a minor one. And is that over time, and with the proliferation of alternatives such as Spotify, Ares Galaxy has become a reservoir of files of dubious origin in many cases. Many of them even contain viruses or spyware, as we have experienced, and as user comments on any forum or social network highlight it.

    For this reason, while we do not recommend that you stop using the application, nor have we had any serious problems with downloaded files, we can advise you only to download content that rates high among searches, so you can be entirely sure that it will not affect the operation of your computer.
