As I’m writing this post, I’m wondering why we didn’t feature this site earlier. AfterPre is an excellent direct download link indexer that’s somehow managed to evade our radar up untill now. When compared to other DDL indexers, AfterPre is unique. Their uniqueness mostly comes from the looks – although a DDL index, the site looks and behaves and exactly like a private BitTorrent tracker running on a script such as TBDEV. A layout that resembles a torrent index, categories, category icons, separate download pages for each indexed release – they are all here. Only difference between AfterPre and a private tracker is that instead of .torrent files. AP gives you a list of download links through which you can download a particular release directly.
AfterPre is not a new site and it’s been online for more than a year. Its process of posting scene releases online seems to be automated – something similar to what sites like NewSceneFiles, SceneFulx and SceneDDL are doing/used to do. Pre times are pretty good and you can find most of the stuff indexed on AfterPre not long after scene groups originally release them. As of now the site’s index consists of over 25000 releases – this is a huge amount of releases for any type of site, private tracker or a DDL forum.
Speaking of the content, you can find pretty much anything here. Movies, Music, TV Shows, Games – if it’s a release from the warez scene chances are that AfterPre has got it. Just like on a torrent tracker, releases are searchable by name or category. One of the drawbacks of this site is that it does not have any packs and it does not index any releases that originate from P2P groups. Anyways the content is still great – a screenshot of part of the main index and site layout may be found below:
As said above AfterPre offers direct download links to indexed files. These usually point to external one click hosting services such as HotFile and RapidShare. You can easily download files hosted on these services with a simple tool like JDownloader.
Signups for AfterPre are currently open. You need to create an account and log into the site in order to view download links (registration is almost instantaneous). If you download scene releases over the web, this site is definitely worth checking out.
