Aww yeah! So in light of the recent issues with ArtHawk I was inspired to actually sit down and write an app that downloads a user's entire gallery...
This is the results. That was done on Looq's gallery in case you're wondering who actually has that much posted to download XD
Took about 40mins to download 1295 files (~820MB), with 6 asynchronous connections. (This limit of course is done to abide by IB policy and not try to flood the server 'n such.)
I'm currently working on adding more features to it, as right now it's only setup to download a user's gallery. In future versions it will download search results (which actually already works, just isn't implemented), as well as maybe downloading new submissions, etc.
If you have any ideas, or wish to be a tester, or just interested in the final product please let me know. I'll be posting a link where you can grab it later when it's ready for such things. Testers will probably get a copy sooner, so I can check for bugs 'n such before letting the public use it.
