Powerful Downloader for Android

ADM uses multithreading (up to nine parts) and its smart algorithm to increase download speed noticeably faster than Android’s built-in downloader. Unlike the traditional Android downloader which downloads a file sequentially, ADM breaks the file into fragments and downloads the portion that is readily available first. After all the pieces have landed on your phone, it then merges them into one complete download! Not only that but you can choose to download through WiFi only to prevent incurring significant charges while using mobile data. ADM is able to intercept links from Android browsers and the Clipboard (after granting it permission, of course). Furthermore, if the data connection is lost during download, the program pause and automatically resume when data connection is restored. You can also add URL links in ADM by tapping a link in your browser and completing action using ADM editor or sharing via ADM editor. There is also an option to schedule the start of a download for a future time. The downside with ADM, however, is that you are limited to only three simultaneous downloads probably because four or more will slow the entire download list down.

Built-in ADM Browser

ADM has a browser built into its skinny 3.25 MB app size that supports multiple tabs. It can track your browsing history and allows you to place bookmarks. In addition, it can intercept MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3) and MP4 (MPEG-4 Part 14) videos from websites. There’s even an option to spoof the user agent of the browser when some sites want you to download from specific browsers or non-mobile browsers. If a download link isn’t a direct link, ADM automatically opens it browser to get the freshest link.
