There's the Playsearch website which allows you that without having to install anything beforehand: Playsearch website, your criteria marked (click image for larger variant) In addition to what you asked for, you even can specify how long ago the last update should be at maximum, what size the app should have, what Android version it should support, how ...

Not sure with native Google Playstore, but you could use Yalp or a fork of Yalp, Aurora (F-droid link), it has many search filters e.g for ads, gratis, number of downloads etc.. Aurora Store is an alternate ( FOSS client) to Google's Play Store, with an elegant design, using Aurora you can download apps, update existing apps, search for apps, get ...

You can copy the videos from this app's location in /data/data/org.coursera.android/files/courkitDownloadedVideos/ if your device is rooted. It could instead be found at: storage/extSdCard/Android/data/org.coursera.android/files/Download/ if you have an external SD card. On an un-rooted device, you can use adb backup function to backup the app and its data ...

There are multiple possibilities for this. One is using the appropriate counter-parts from the µg project (pronounced "micro-G"; formerly known as NOGAPPS) – in this case Phonesky (the inofficial Google PlayStore Client) or BlankStore (same thing, basically). Each of these two would run directly on the device, no Google-Apps required (hence the name "NOGAPPS"...

The app downloads the videos to /data/data/org.coursera.android/files/courkitDownloadedVideos/ instead of the standard user space of /sdcard/Android/data/* and even worse yet, the files are named file2.mp4 file3.mp4 etc. making it difficult to figure out which file is which course. I personally find this very frustrating as I would love to stream the videos ...

Okay I have found a third party app that lets me copy everything from Google drive in one easy step - Astro File Manager - it's a free app on play store, works brilliantly for this as you can select everything in the drive and simply copy it over to your SD Card. This app will also work with dropbox and other cloud services.

You can alternatively use the browser and go to [drive.google.com/] and run the site in desktop mode. There, you can use the bar that's just under the search bar. Once you have navigated to the desired folder, go back to the bar I mentioned before, and tap your folder's name in the bar. After doing so, you will find a dropdown menu that will have options in ...

As of December 2012, I don't see any way to get something like "Save link as" option in Firefox for Android. However, in some cases clicking on a video link automatically starts downloading the video, but in most cases it starts playing them. Best you can do is to request Firefox to add this feature. Meanwhile, you can try an alternative browser that has ...

Saw this on another site: Ryan answered 4 weeks ago I was having the same issue after I updated my Galaxy S3 to Android 4.3. I think I just fixed it. Here's what I did: From the home screen, click the Apps icon Open the "Downloads" app In my case the files that kept showing up in the notification pull down were in the Other Downloads tab Click the "...

If you root your tablet, there are reverse tethering apps that will allow you to use your PC's net connection via USB. One of the apps in the Play store is free, and another offers a free trial, so you may give them a try. It appears this working is hit or miss, but since this is a Nexus device you may be in luck (being vanilla Android, not some carrier or ...

It depends on game. Some games allow you to download the data off phone and extract it to your SD card at the said location of the game instruction. I remember doing so for few games myself. If the game instruction doesn't have anything like that then you've to manually find out what file it downloads from where and put it in relevant place in SD card.

Yes. You can take either of the following two approaches: Use tubemate. With this app you can browse YouTube and download the video just like you would download from websites like keepvid.com. The latest version of YouTube allows the videos that you opened or YouTube thinks you'll watch or have added to watch later queue to be downloaded in background so ...

I've struggled with this same issue, though in my case I wanted to save a Text file (.txt) that I had open in the Chrome browser on Android 4.4.x (Kit Kat). After reading this and other questions posted I realised that neither Chrome, the Google applications, nor the standard Android tools would allow me to simply save a Text file from a URL. To save a ...

Unknown Sources simply means applications that are not downloaded from the Google Play Store. Even if you put your applications on Amazon App Store or other alternative stores, your users will have to enable Unknown Sources. You can't change this behaviour, except maybe by modifying Android's sources, but I'm sure you don't want to.

As an end user, there is no way to know the exact number of downloads. But you can see a range if you scroll down the app page and look at the Installs section within Additional Information.

I have the axon 7 go to settings then apps then Google play then tap 3 small boxes in top right corner and uninstall update.... This worked out for me

To quote Izzy, wget usually downloads to where you called it from – unless told otherwise using the -O parameter. So you either first cd to the desired directory – or try something like wget -O /sdcard/downloads/foo.zip http://example.com/foo.zip. In your case, this directory is /data/data/com.termux/files/home and, as it's inside /data, only root ...

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread but I just had the same problem of needing to stop a download and solved the problem by activating Aeroplane Mode. A less invasive solution and more easily reached in the UI - for anyone else ending up here from Google (like I did :-))

Manually moving files as suggested by Michael above works (I use Ghost Commander on my device), but today I found the Amazon MP3 Mover app. It automatically moves the files to the folder you specify on your SD card as they download and then the Amazon MP3 player app (or Apollo or whatever else you might use) finds them in their new location. I just ...

It does not work / has limited support with Third-Party applications. Have a look at the following article by Samsung on their homepage: What is the Download Booster and how do I enable it on my Samsung Galaxy Alpha? It seems like that the download booster is only available when downloading via the integrated Browser / Samsung Apps / Google Apps. See this ...

According to a Google I/O '18 talk Google Play will download all "typically used languages" and retrieve others on demand. In the rare case, where a user switches to a new language that we weren't aware of before, Play will dynamically deliver relevant splits to their device. (https://youtu.be/0raqVydJmNE?t=13m9s)

I prefer to block ads using the free Blokada app from F-droid instead of searching apps without ads. It works when using apps, browsing (and more), and it makes using Android definitively a far better user experience. (I have been using it both in our Xiaomi phones and our Samsung tablet). Blokada efficiently blocks ads, tracking and malware. It saves ...

Long press the notification and select "App Info". This will take you to the application which is responsible for the download, which you can then force stop.

There is no way to disable the Google Play store from downloading apps that you have asked to download, however if you go into the Google Play app settings menu, you can enable the Update on WiFi only option - this will only let updates download when you are connected to WiFi. You can also completely disable your mobile data connection by going to System ...

Download mode is for flashing radio firmware/ROM upgrade through official means. Some devices uses U-Boot over the generic boot, it is a boot-loader code found in read-only ROM chip on the board, which uses a certain memory address offset, in which the kernel from the /boot partition gets loaded into that specific certain memory address offset and jumps ...

There is no need for a third party app. You can explore your Google drive storage like you can your internal storage from your phone's settings app. There you can then copy even folders to your internal storage Open Files. Press on the button to open the side menu. Select Drive. Go to the folder you wish to download. Long press the folder. Press on the 3 ...

As the answer to Are Google Books DRM protected? explains, ACSM files are DRM-protected, so you can only read them in the Play Books app itself, not in another ebook app. Once you've "pinned" the book and it has downloaded, you can read it offline in the Play Books app.

I'm using LBE Security Manager for a while now (as the "lite version", LBE Privacy Guard, is no longer continued and soesn't work with Android 4.1 and above). I first felt it a bit, umm, over-loaded – but it runs decently (no battery drain or performance issues), and after disabling half of its features I don't need, I'm pretty satisfied with it. While my ...
