Welcome to our site, the best place to get everyone’s favorite application – Ares Galaxy!
The first thing we’re going to talk about is what does this tool do? You’ve probably hundreds of pieces of software installed on your computer now, a lot of them you might never even use. What’s different about this? What makes it special, why will you use it every single day of your life? These are the things you probably want to know about before making any decision, so that’s what we’re going to talk about.
One point we have to make before we go into all of the features is that if you want to go straight ahead, you can use the link we’ve provided to get started. One thing you might want to know about is how it all started. It has had an interesting journey, and has survived many serious problems to become what it is today – a big player in the market. In 2002 an individual decided that the choices people had at the time weren’t enough – it wasn’t easy enough to find what you’re looking for, the tools were buggy and slow and just didn’t provide a good enough user experience. Of course it was very difficult to build his own network from scratch, so he decided to build on top of the gnutella network which was a very established protocol at the time.
This very quickly proved to be ineffective – as they say, a good interface doesn’t make a good product. More people had to get involved if this was to succeed, and luckily the project had already caught the eye of some very talented programmers who decided to help produce it. After just six months, it was released running its own completely new platform. At the time people were worried that since there was no files in it, nobody would ever use it. They were wrong, it spread like wildfire with hundreds of thousands of files being added to it everyday. That still continues today, so there’s always very fresh content on it.
You’re obviously going to want to know more about what the software can actually offer you in terms of features, so we’ll spend some time talking about how powerful it is. The first thing, something which is perhaps essential, is the number of files available inside the network. You have two different choices for this – you can either use the Ares network or you can simply use any torrent file on the internet. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but personally we prefer torrents for the sole reason of them being universal. They’re used by many different programs and as a result, you’ll nearly always find what you’re looking for from somewhere popular like The Pirate Bay.
If you didn’t want to do this, you could instead just use the in-built search functionality which makes it easier to specify exactly what it is you want, even if you don’t know it yourself! There’s a few pieces of criteria it asks for, and the more information you pass into it the more likely it’ll return what you’re looking for. Usually just a few relevant words are enough (such as the name of a movie or a nice song you love), but you can also enter what type of data it’s likely to be, such as a document, audio or video. We highly recommend that you spend a bit of time filling this in when you really want something. It can’t hurt after all, can it?
After you’ve found what you’re looking for, the next step of the process is to obviously consume the content, whatever that may be. It also has features for making that easier, with a built in media player that can handle all sorts of files, but mainly music and movies. Once you’ve downloaded one and it has been stored on your hard drive, you can then go into your library and select it from the list. This will make the song or the video play automatically in the same window, which means you can be both watching and downloading at the same time. It’s just a neat little feature that makes things a little bit easier for you. Nobody wants to have tens of applications all running at the same time in different windows.
I personally like the IRC client that comes packaged with it. IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat, if you didn’t already know. This is a way for you to communicate with many other people across the globe as it is an industry standard protocol. By default you’ll be connected to a chatroom with fellow Ares users, but there is no limits on where you can go, meaning you can join any room you like or even create your own. Use this wisely however, as not everywhere on IRC is somewhere where you’d want to visit. Generally speaking this is an add-on that you’ll be thankful for having.
There’s obviously a lot more to talk about but we don’t want to make this homepage have too much content, so you’ll find a lot more on our blog. Alternatively, view all of the most interesting articles by looking at the “featured posts” section in the footer on our site, which should give you some guides on where you can go from here. We’ll do our absolute best to provide you with as many tutorials as we can so that you can enjoy the tool as much as we do.
