About Internet Download Manager

Internet Download Manager gives you the tools to download many types of files from the Internet and organize them as you see fit. You can categorize each file as you download it, and then access all downloads right from the app's main interface.

Teacher Review

Not to be confused with the popular download manager for Windows, the IDM download manager is also an Android downloader tool. It claims to provide five times faster-downloading speed along with the flexibility to download any files. You can download from your default browser or email, by using the link share, or even by entering the URL manually.

Apart from download management, this fast file downloader also comes with a built-in browser, file manager, music, and video player. IDM supports download from HTML5 web pages and also gives you the ability to pause, resume, or cancel downloads anytime. It is a simple yet well-organized app that is available for free. It has some in-app purchases and also contains ads.

PROS

Speedy: Most short video files are downloaded almost instantly. As soon as you click "Download," a message pops up telling you the process is complete. You can then play the video immediately, or return to your browser to find more clips.

Browser integration: Since this app integrates with your browser, it can automatically detect when a downloadable file is present on a Web page and inserts a Download button onto the page. All you have to do is click the button and enter a description to begin the downloading process.

Contextual help: If you get stuck at any point while you're using the program, you can press "F1" to bring up a Help topic for the area of the program that you're in.

CONS

Clunky interface: The main interface of this app gets the job done, but it doesn't have the most intuitive setup. Novice users should have no trouble completing basic downloads, but to take advantage of some of the more advanced features or to change the preferences, you need to have a little bit of technical know-how.
