Best download managers for Android

Downloading files from the internet can be easy but it depends on the files one wants to download and the type of download manager the user chooses.

Downloading large files via the default download manager pre-installed on Android can be very tiring and sometimes frustrating. That is why we always recommend that whenever you are downloading official firmware for your smartphone or tablet from Leakite, you should use a download manager. It will not only speed up the download, but correctly and completely download the file to avoid extraction errors.

Once, I was downloading a movie and exhausted my data halfway. Using the default (stock) Android download manager, I couldn’t pause the download to resume when I renewed my subscription plan. I had to restart the download entirely from scratch. It hurt me so bad and I wasn’t happy about the wasted data since I use a capped internet data bundle.

That’s why I suggest you try a third party app that will suit your needs.

There are tons of third party download managers on play store, some of them are speed boosters, Some allow you to download multiple items at once allowing you to download really fast.

Note: This list is not in any particular order. You are advised to choose and download any of these apps you think will suit your need.

1. Advanced Download Manager (ADM)

ADM for Android

When it comes to fast multi-downloads. I recommend ADM.

It lets you download files of any type and up to 3 files at once to your Android device with maximum speed.

Advanced Download Manager is a powerful Android app. The app automatically recognizes downloadable links (copied to your clipboard) or files from your default browser and even accelerates the downloading speed by using up to 9 multi-threading instances.

My second pick, is the awesome swift download manager. The icon might resemble that of the Android Gingerbread days, but I’d urge you to forget the icon and focus on what the app its built for. It’s way better than stock Android download manager.

Similar to the ADM, it automatically captures downloadable links from supported Android browsers.

It provides fast downloading speed by splitting the download into parts. You can even pause and schedule the download for a later time. Cool isn’t it?
