App Giveaway: iDownloader Pro

iDownloader Pro is an app that lets you download anything from the web onto your iPhone or iPad. You can then view them on your device or transfer them to your computer with iTunes File Sharing.

I've actually used the free version of this app for downloading large files while at work. We have a T1 line for internet, and if I want to download Fedora or something, it takes forever. Believe it or not, 3G is faster then our T1 in my area. Enter me in for this one.

Is This App Better Than 'PerfectDownloader'??

Iyer2701 says:

TiPb rocks.
The iDownloader seems to be an interesting app. It is feature-rich with simultaneous downloads, music and video downloads and file management. The playerrs are a bonus. Looks to be a standalone composite app.
