The Android mobile operating system has converted the humble handheld phone into a sleek piece of technology that fits in the palm of our hands. Every upgrade that Android has got (and still gets), has bridged the gap between a smartphone and a computer, a little bit at a time.
Today, you can use an Android smartphone to perform most of the tasks that you would normally accomplish on your computer. One of them is downloading documents or files from the internet. Initially, if you wanted to place a document or file into your smartphone, you had to download it on your computer and then transfer it to your smartphone using a USB cable connection. The problem with this process was that a number of factors could stop the transfer and you had to start all over.
This triggered a new wave in the Android market with brands introducing more robust and capable browsers and a dedicated File manager that allowed you to now download and save files and documents directly on your smartphone.
