Description

FasterDownloads is a DOWNLOAD ACCELERATOR that avoids Android's limitation when downloading files and gives you a much needed speed boost when you enable it's built-in Multithreaded Download! (Check the video for an example).

IMPORTANT: THIS IS NOT A FILE OPENER, VIDEO PLAYER, ROM MANAGER, TIME MACHINE OR VACUUM CLEANER. THIS APP WILL DOWNLOAD FILES, THAT IS ALL.

Note: Many file locker services with paid accounts block multithreaded downloads (Megaupload, FileSonic, Fileserve...). This is a limit set up by themselves and there is nothing I can do to get it working.

This app will register itself as a handler for most well known file types, allowing you to download them however you want, whenever you want. It is specially useful on phones using Touchwiz (the Samsung Galaxy line), since their browser has a mediocre download manager (Have you ever tried downloading an APK? It won't let you. Don't ask me why, I don't get it).

You can also send your links to a Mac or PC running JDownloader with its plugin "JD Remote Control" or see a complete list of the downloads in progress.

Note: If you want to download with a Premium Megaupload, Rapidshare or Uploaded.to account, you only have to log in using the app's integrated browser. It will automatically use your cookie to enable premium downloads :)

* IMPORTANT *
Some third party browsers (Firefox, Opera, Dolphin...) block other apps from directly accessing the URLs that you are browsing though, with a bad side effect: This download manager (and many other apps) can not intercept the Intents required.
Miren Browser is an awesome third party browser AND it is fully supported :)
Long story short: Don't worry! You can long tap any link and "Share" it and this app will try to download it. And if you share a website, it will let you navigate through it until it catches the attachment (Useful for the sites that require you to be logged in).

* PREMISSIONS *
- Internet: This is a download manager, you NEED access to internet :)
- SDCard read/write: Same as above, this should be obvious... you must put the files somewhere.
- Wifi State: This one is trickier, this permission is only needed to know about the wifi state and is currently used by the JDownloader Setup Wizard. Soon you will be able to restrict some/all downloads to download only when you are connected to a Wifi network.
