Default Company PDF manuals download tool

I work for a company that keeps all their manuals in PDF format. I am downloading updated manuals at least once a week. There are about 5 of them and every once in a while I will download all 5. What I am looking for seems to be simple if you know what your doing, but I'm not sure. I want to be able to have buttons to press that are listed down the screen that will start the download of these manuals. I need to be able to "add a button" and "delete a button". When I "add a button" I need to be able to name the button and type in the URL that the button will go to download the file. I would also like a "download all" button to be able to press so that it will download all the files associated with all the buttons that were created. If there are 5 buttons, then all files will be downloaded by pressing "download all".

Would this be something that is fairly easy to create?

To make the app more generic, it can download not only pdf but any resources that can be reached via URL. Can be jpg,png,mp3 etc whatever.

So the app should have a screen for you to configure all the URL that you want to download stuff from. Then another screen will list down those you have configured earlier and a button besides so you can click to start download from that URL. A Download All button means auto-download all of them.

Yes, that's exactly right. I was thinking in terms of PDF's because that is what I use but it can be used for anything that gets downloaded from the same url .

I have developed an app that does exactly what you are looking for. The app uses SQLite database to store the url and associated tag name. The app's main screen is a list view with a button footer that provides the "Download All" capability. As you save the tag (document name) and url, the tag is used to populate the list view item. You can tap items in the list to download or tap the Download All button. Is this basically what you need? I can't post images yet as I am new to this forum.
