How do I download files from Android app

  • Hey there,

    I've been trying to figure this out for quite some time now, yet I haven't found a solution.

    How can I download files in an Android app? If I use "Browser: Invoke download", nothing happens. Is there any other way? Do I have to include any special plugins when building?

    I use PhoneGap to build the apk.

    An example usage of this would be to download CanvasSnapshot from the app. So the app would download the snapshot (save it to the device).

    Thank you in forward.

    I see I was unclear in my post. I want to download files from inside my app (for example, to download canvas snapshots).

  • I'm also trying to do the same thing. A temporary solution was adding a button with an external link in it which sends the user to the file through a browser. But I want to create an offline version where the user downloads the file directly to the phone.
