Australian Kickstarter Checketry is like a nanny cam for your downloads

Brodie Fogg 8 March 2018 NEWS

Sitting at your desk wondering if your latest Steam sale haul has finished downloading? Checketry has got your back.

Hot on the heels of one successful Australian KickStarter (check it out), Melbourne's Stefan Jeftic has created his own successful KickStarter campaign for his download-tracking app Checketry.

Inspired by his own troubles with a 20-hour FIFA 17 download, Jeftic, a university student at the time, couldn't find any kind of solution to check his Steam download progress so set out to solve the problem himself. And so, Checketry was born. A mobile and desktop app that connects to popular services like Steam and uTorrent and browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Checketry allows users to track their downloads on the go from one convenient app.

Checketry is a free app that will have a premium subscription at launch, costing 99c per month or $9.99 per year. For now, the app is compatible with Google Chrome, Firefox, uTorrent, Qbittorrent and Steam. However, Jeftic is currently in negotiation with EA over Origin and Blizzard over Battlenet to gain access to their private APIs.

By launch, Jeftic is hoping to have Safari, Opera, Edge/Internet Explorer and Deluge Torrent available as well.

Checketry has already hit its $8,000 goal and it still has 10 days to go. Check-et out.
