Steadyflow is a decent app and it does what it aims to do but for me it is way to minimalist. There are literally no settings to control almost anything at can control where it downloads stuff but that is basically it.

uGet is a much more powerful download manager for Linux. I am a project member on uGet but still it is a better app imho.
