Android DownloadManager Example

The Android DownloadManager introduced in Android 2.3. (API 9) is a system service which allows to handle long-running HTTP downloads in the background and notify the triggering application via a broadcast receiver once the download is finished.

Here is a little example for using the DownloadManager. The project will be called “de.vogella.android.downloadmanager” with the activity “DownloadManagerActivity” based on Android API9 or higher.

Also add the permission to go to the internet to your app.


If you implemented this example you have an Android application which can download my picture (sorry for this ;-)) and allow you to switch to the download manager to see the finished downloads.

Hope this helps.
