How to Download Files Faster on Android
There are many people who don't pay attention to their mobile phone's download speed; mainly because most of the files that we've downloaded on our mobiles are usually just a few megabytes.
However many people work with larger files, so increasing download speed can really make a difference that they cant go without. There are a variety of different add ons and apps you can get to improve file downloads with Android.
Through the AndroGET free app, we can stop, restart and re-order our download queue as well as speeding up large downloads. If you don't know how to use this excellent android app, we at oneHOWTO show you how to do it step by step:
- An Android device with internet access.
Install the AndroGET app from the Android Market. It's completely free to download an use!
Once you have installed the app, open the app's "Settings" using the icon at the top right of the screen. From here you can adjust the number of simultaneous downloads, download notifications, and the destination folder for new downloads, as well as other default settings.
AndroGET works with most common Android browsers such as chrome or the default browser so you can continue to use your existing browser. The next time you see a download link, instead of using the default download option, press and hold the link to select it and then click 'Share link' to open and download the file faster with AndroGET.
The app will automatically ask you if you want to confirm the download. If, a password is required by a particular file, click 'Credentials' and enter the password. Then, click on 'Download' to confirm.
The download should begin in the background. To check its progress, swipe the notification bar and click 'AndroGET' icon to open the download manager. Wait while the file downloads and check to see how much quicker it is!
