Default the Downloads app is missing, how to find downloads?[answer inside]

I bought a few songs on google play via credit witch went through, but there are no were to be found. Neither the google player or stock media player it comes with. What am I doing wrong? And whats the easiest way to transfer music from my computer to my LTEVO?

MOD NOTE: Here is a solution to this; its found in this thread however I am going to add it here:

Quote:
Found a solution on Sprint Community

1. Launch ES File Explorer
2. Run AppMgr
3. Select Category; Under "Select types" click "All"
4. Find the app you are looking for and do a long press on it; "Operations" will pop up, pick shortcut.

You will now have a shortcut for the hidden apps.

Hello! Have you tried Astro File Manager or browsing your SD-Card via-USB?

Plug your phone into your computer with the usb cable, then select Media Link.

Once the pop up opens, choose "open device to view files". Then open the "Phone" folder. In here look for either the music folder, or the downloads folder. The music "should" be in either of these. If it's not, search around in here and see if you can locate it.

If you want to transfer music to the phone, just open the "music" folder referenced above and drag and drop in here.

Speaking of Media Link. Is there a Win7 64 bit driver? Mine always fails at install

I plugged my phone into my Windows 7 X64 rig and it loaded right up.

Give me a hot minute and I'll check and see if I can locate any drivers..

EDIT:

I located the HTCSync update for the El Tevo. I'm not sure if this will solve your issue, but it's worth a shot.

Just wanted to confirm that instead of
media link you meant HTC sync possibly?

I've been trying to use dropbox to
transfer music but can't figure out how to
move it from the dropbox app to the
"Music" folder.

Still an error loading the MTP driver.. Hmm.. You got me on the right path though, so I will dig deeper and check back if you have other suggestions. then for good measure got a nice BSOD after updating HTC Sync.lol

well i think I got the MTP. I had some old HTC Sync, so after removing, I went through my registry and deleted anything HTC related. However now when I use HTC Sync, I get the BSOD with Bad Pool Header. Onto my next troubleshooting. Thanks for the help. Working IT, it is nice to goto someone else for help occasionally.lol

Apparently it didnt like my USB3 card that came with my motherboard. I used my PC case's USB2 headers and worked like a charm. Odd, but I knew it had to be something stupid.lol Thanks again for the help.

Have downloaded pdfs and other files. Short of downloading a file manager, how the hell do you find these files? Hehe

as is usual with Android, you need a file explorer app. ES file explorer is tops for me.

I know what a file manager is. That's not what I was asking. I had asked ,"Where if the Downloads App Equivalent?" ... But, thanks to a mod changing the title of the post, this is where we're at ...

Anyway, with the EVO 4G and Inspire you don't. HTC (or Google?) at least provided you a basic way to view downloaded files.

Asus Transformer Prime came with it's own file manager and has a separate downloada app.

File managers are fine.. But, there are a lot of people who will be buying these devices, or using Android 4, that won't know anything about file managers.. .

Just would have been nice to have included something basic.

Anyway, thanks.

Without a file manager, you could go in the internet browser's menu, Downloads ...

There is the "Downloads" application on your phone which will take you to all historic downloads.

I was a little surprised that some files just seem to go where they belong automatically without me doing anything...

For example:
I had several ringtones on my old phone I wanted to keep and due to my lack of skill I didn't get them onto my new phone the way I probably should have after activation. I ended up taking them off my old phone and putting them on my pc and then emailed them to myself. When I opened the first email I thought I'd have to save each ringtone to the right place within the phone but I couldn't find a "save" option in email, and after a little bit of frustration I saw that they automatically showed up in my ringtones list.

The same thing happened when my daughter sent me a picture in a text, later I noticed it had appeared in my gallery without me saving it. It's cool and a little annoying at the same time. Now every time I get a picture - if it's not something I want to keep I need to go delete it from my gallery.... but I can live with it now that I understand what's happening

Oh, and in keeping with the topic of this thread, I use Astro file manager.

I noticed it too. I got a phot, long prpessed and selected Save to SD Card. Thought for sure it would goto Downloads. Actually I am not sure where the photo went that I downloaded, but like you it shows in my gallery.Just checked details and since I use Handcent, it put it in the Handcent folder on my SD Card. Interesting.

**edit**. Just noticed Stock and Handcent put them in the internal storage. Camera put them on external SD. Will have to check for a setting somewhere. Email app put them on External. If you look at the photos in gallery. Click on one. Then click on it again when you only see one photo and select More-Details. If it says SD Card it is internal. If it says SDcard_extsd then it is external. Going to check for Save settings.
**Update**. Goto Settings-Storage-App Storage Location and Update all to Storage card(if you want). Tried messages again and it saved to Downloads on my MicroSD Card. This way all your downloads should goto one folder from email app and stock text.

Right, there is definitely a "Downloads" shortcut on every Android phone since Gingerbread I believe.

I know everyone uses the old staples(Es, Astro) but for you adventurous Android folk I highly recommend Solid Explorer. It is in beta but I have been using it for about a month now and it has become my daily driver for file management.

I think as long as you give it a chance you will enjoy it too.

Not on this one. It isn't on the bar at the bottom. There isn't one listed in shortcuts.. There is one on my Transformer Prime...

Odd..

Default Where is the download app? [its one of 3 icons at bottom of apps screen]

Looking for the Downloads app in the apps section and it isn't there. The Evo 3D had this which was nice as any files that were attachements in an email could be found in this area once download. Having it eliminated the need for something like Astro file manager...does sense 4 not have this?

Nope, there's no Download app in Sense 4.0 - yeah, I know, silly.

Looking for the same here, it turned into a favorite explorer thread.

Yeah this wasn't the title of my thread. Some mod hijacked and changed the title.

I am referring when you download a pdf file from the Web browser, or any file for that matter.

If you go to internet menu downloads, that's what I am referring to.

There is no sep app or shortcut to downloads...

I am not looking for app downloads.

It exists on Transformer Prime running ICS.

It existed on Transformer Prime running Honeycomb.

It exists on EVO 4G.

A separate app or one click icon that takes me there.

I don't want to have to use Google search to find an app that exists on my phone, but no direct way to get there.

Thanks for trying!

On my One X, I've this 'Downloads' app in my apps tray and if I'd want it, I'd put it on the home screen and then have the icon there, or even shove the icon on the launch bar on the lower screen.

Did I understand right that the EVO 4G LTE hasn't the Downloads app in its apps tray?

I can't find it. I'm with EEE; there used to be an app shortcut in the list of apps for downloads. It is no longer there. I, too, see the downloads icon if you search for it with the google bar, but otherwise, it's not there.

Not here:



but here:

In the One X's Settings, Accounts is a HTC Account to choose. If you sign in you'll get more HTC apps and widgets.

I didn't sign in yet and I don't know if the EVO has this HTC account too. But I think it's worth a try and maybe you'll find this Downloads app

Thanks for the tip. I had already looked and no joy.

The app exists on the phone, just no icon or shortcut to get to it lol

Interesting it's on the One X. Someone must have left it out by accident.

There are more apps left out and only as "build-in" available ... Polaris, TuneIn ...

Have a look at this thread ...
Looking for hidden apps in ICS? Try ES file explorer (Polaris, twitter, etc)

yes what im saying is i dont think this is a "bug" to HTC. it seems to be designed this way out of the box, since there are other apps that do not have actual icons. mirror app, tunein, soundhound, etc etc and so forth.

i will say this: HTC should at least give a reason as to why they did this. its clear lots of people miss it.

i can count on one hand how many times i used this downloads button on past EVOs, so its not missed to me (plus i just used ES file explorer to grab my files anyway).

easy e, contacting HTC is sound advice mate....

Found a solution on Sprint Community

1. Launch ES File Explorer
2. Run AppMgr
3. Select Category; Under "Select types" click "All"
4. Find the app you are looking for and do a long press on it; "Operations" will pop up, pick shortcut.

You will now have a shortcut for the hidden apps.

When I installed the Nova launcher, my hidden apps became visible (no short to Downloads, nice tip above) - but Downloads shows nothing on my phone, and I have both Downloads and Download holding stuff on the /sdcard, and the /sdcard2/Download.

It's just as worthless as the Download app on my 3vo (which had no shortcut for this).

What am I missing here??
