Web Site Change/Addition.

I think it would be nice to have a download all link under each category.
Or maybe a check box next to each app and a button the says 'Download Selected'.

This way if I would like to try re-downloading all the games, for example, to make sure I've got all the new ones and updates for older ones, I can simply check the box for all of them and click 'Download Selected'.

hard

That would be hard to do as we use the sourceforge network of mirrors as our main download place.
For updates, you can try the latest beta of the platform which includes an updater and a couple of other features. it is linked to from the top of every page.

No; another mechanism

It's not technically feasible to do it that way. What we will be having is a way of downloading apps from the Platform, in the next version.

Sweet.

Sweet that would make things more convenient.

However, in response to the issue on using SourceForge.
I am not a web developer but I do know that if I provide the SourceForge URL to a download manager, such as WinGet Portable, it has no trouble downloading the apps.

I'm not sure if this would also make it possible to manage the downloads in the background on the web page as well if a check box system were in place.

But it sounds like being able to browse and download the apps straight from the platform will make it even easier.

Thank you!
