    Downloader and File Sharing

    Downloader and File Sharing iPhone App The Downloader and File Sharing app features a browser with bookmarks and full screen support. A minor flaw with the browser, according to one user, is that it doesn't hold the last page when switching between the browser and the download folder. You can download multiple files at the same time and view them with the in-app video player. The app can resume downloading files after the connection is lost, and it protects files with a password option. The app is available at the iTunes App Store for $0.99.
