[FREE] ASD Downloader Extension - Download and manage files in ASD

Short description

ASD Downloader extension to download files in App Specific Directory (ASD) without READ or WRITE PERMISSION. Since ASD is always accessible to READ and WRITE files within the app it does not requires READ and WRITE PERMISSION.

Nowadays due to new restrictions in higher Android versions it is difficult to manage files without READ and WRITE PERMISSIONS where ASD is very useful to store downloaded files and manage them without any permission.

This extension allows you downloading files in ASD and managing them with various functions.

This extension does not show any external notifications or system download notification, so you can create a custom notification layout.

There is already extension available to download files to ASD, I have developed this extension with some additional functionalities which makes this extension more useful and gives more scopes to manage files in ASD.

Both extensions are useful, you can use any one as per your requirement.
