Allows Browser/Download Manager to download files that may not have associated applications. Don’t understand why it won’t launch? Get “Download Crutch” instead.
AndroidTapp.com Android App Review:
Download Crutch Android App is a useful utility that allows you to accept other formats when downloading via the web browser. Ever tried to download an EXE or ZIP file in the Android web browser and get the error message, “insert”? Well this app lets you download non compliant file types in the web browser.
This app was recommended by June Fabrics, creators of PdaNet, as I got a new 64bit Windows 7 laptop and needed to put the new software on. I thought no problem, I’ll download the new version via Android phone and copy to PC via USB. By default, that wasn’t happening without this utility. Once installed I could easily download the EXE file and run it from the phones SD Card storage. Even great for grabbing ROMS for Nesoid too!
Using caution when enabling potentially harmful file extensions on your Android phone, such as EXE and ZIP files.
