Mastering The Mix
If it was more customisable it would be 5 stars. I would like to have unique product update email templates for each product... please :)

Basic app. Mostly does what it says for free but has some significant drawbacks.
The basic setting is 'unlimited instant downloads'. If you have mixed products which include a download plus a physical product, or if you want to limit the number of downloads per purchase, you have to reload the app page and edit each item individually. There is no way to change the basic setting - very annoying when you need to change it for every single item.
Update: Having used this app for a while now and find it does not work consistently. I too often have to email customers the downloads because they can't access them. Have now also installed Sky Pilot and find that a much better app. Have deleted Digital Downloads.

Great App that has made feeling digital goods very easy to my shop.
I wish there was a way to sell items that are unique behind one product instead of duplicating many of the products so that they get individualized download links using this app. Who know maybe in the future it can be added.
Thanks for the app!
It's great to have a free digital download app in shopify. It's easy to use and the fact that you can add different downloads to product variables is great. But the app can be developed, especially the option that customers can download their digital goodies from their account in the store would be very handy. Let's admit no one stores e-mail download links and when the customer lost their download keys the shop owner has to create manual download links. And more importantly in such cases you cannot send an automated new download email to the customer within the app settings>orders page. It sends the old download key which may have ran out of the download limit.
A nice start, but one star from me until you can attach multiple files to the same product variant. Shopify's suggestion of attaching a .zip file is useless: many people don't know how to use them, and we lose the vast number of customers who are purchasing on mobile devices that can't handle .zip files.
Works pretty well, but lacks a few features that would make it more convenient to use. For example, there is no way to make bulk edits to the settings for all items - we wanted to change the download limit for our products, but there is no way to set them all at once, so we have to change each of the 1,700 individually.
Works great and easy to use. Don't even have to think about it once it's set up.
I have this set up on a shop that fulfills physical items, but use this feature to make free PDF downloads available while still gathering emails.
Since I use it to provide free downloads to my customers, my only wish is that for free orders all they would have to provide is name and email address - rather than still going through checkout like regular orders. I think that turns some people off from completing the process.
I agree with the last two reviews. This app was PERFECT when it allowed for manual fulfillment at a later date, but sent the download immediately upon checkout completion. Now, that functionality has been changed / disabled and support has given me a similar response, stating that functionality was incorrect (although, sounds like at least a few of us didn't think so). Maybe let the app do what customers want, even if it wasn't the original intent?
As per the previous review, I was using this app for the last 6 months and it was working fine, however it's stopped working now and I'm not sure why. I have tried contacting the developer but no answer yet. I have also tried re-uploading the digital files but that didn't help either.

I was using this app to deliver mix goods (a physical & digital product). At first, it worked perfectly. Customers could download digital good immediately after a successful checkout while they were waiting fulfillment of their physical item as described in the app's documentation.
From App's Documentation
"Customers will still be able to immediately download the digital content even if fulfillment is set to manual. They are presented a link following a successful checkout."
All of a sudden it stop delivering a download URL following successful checkout. I contacted Shopify Support and I was told that the above Reminder was an inconsistency and that the app is not supposed to function that way at all. Which I still can't understand because it functioned in the way described in the App's Documentation for months. Shopify Support and the App's Developer confirmed that the Documentation that describes this functionality is an "unknown error". I guess they're happy that I reported it.
