Hello World,

Can the browser's plugin "invoke download" action be used to download a file from dropbox to the users android device? And if it can, do I just enter the normal dropbox adress and the file name, or is there more to it?

Thank you.

tricky question...android use browsers just like pc...
if you export game like HTML5 and use Chrome browser on android and append ?dl=1 to the end of your Dropbox Link
so
Code: Select all
https://www.dropbox.com/s/harit7t63rmhksn/Untitled-1.png

becomes
Code: Select all
https://www.dropbox.com/s/harit7t63rmhksn/Untitled-1.png?dl=1

this works..for Chrome..but not for Opera Mini(on my phone..)

I try to replace
Code: Select all
www.dropbox.com
with
Code: Select all
dl.dropboxusercontent.com

so..link looks like
Code: Select all
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/harit7t63rmhksn/Untitled-1.png?dl=1

this works on Chrome & Opera(but Opera shows pop-up window to confirm download..on my phone)

I think it's best that you test it with several phones and several browsers...

and if use wrappers.....good luck :?
