The new App is called Download Buddy. The app should support any android device 1.6 and above. This app is a combination of 2 different services. The first service will allow you to download any email attachment to your phone whether it is supported or not. It will save the file using the original file name and to the directory of your choice. It has support for using rd party browsers for picking the directory or manually typing it. The second service allows you to download any file type using a link in a email or message or from the web browser, again this will allow you to download the file anywhere you want not just the default folder android normally forces you to. It also comes with a download manager similar to the one the web browser currently uses. Both services will save your last chosen directory as the default to save to until you decide to change it. Both services also include an option to automatically launch and or open the file after downloading it.

That i am not sure of. there are so many out there to try to test on. But technically it should since other browsers are able to catch links. If you find a browser it does not work on let me know and i will see if its possible to add support.

From testing this does work with the Default Browser, the Dolphin Browser, & the Skyfire Browser. It does not work with Opera or xScope because they dont use intents for downloading so unfortunately there is no way to make them work unless you speak to those devs to offer an option like to open link in another browser or something similar.
