Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I resume a broken download?A: If a download is interrupted, the state is changed to error, but any downloaded bytes so far will remain. Click on the URL, and select Resume Download to continue where you left off.
Q: I still can't seem to resume broken downloads, seems that they start all over?A: There could be a few reasons; the bytes weren't actually stored (in some cases where range requests are not supported) or the remote file size changed in between (in which case the app doesn't really know what to do, but start over).
Q: All of my downloads stop when the app closes, isn't background downloading supported?A: Downloads will continue in the background (for example if the Home button is pressed or another app is placed on top). However, if the app is exited (for example if the Back button is pressed), all downloads will automatically be paused, but the state will be retained, and downloads can be resumed after starting the app again.
Q: Is there any help available?A: For now, it is this page or email, but in the next release we will include a link to a HTML based help site.
Q: I can't download Youtube videos, what's up with that?A: Although technically this would be easy (detect the download URLs and save the streams), it is prohibited by the end user policy.
Q: A previous version had localisation to spanish, french, etc., but they're gone now?A: Version 3.0 included a totally new user interface, which unfortunately impacted text resources quite heavily also. We will however add support for most popular languages in future minor releases.
Q: The app displays ads. Is there for example a paid version to remove these?A: This is correct. However, we won't push ads, but only display an unobtrusive small banner. To be honest, users haven't reported concerns about this, but we could consider some kind of model for a version without ads.
