    My current File Manager of choice is Androzip, which i use to download a number of things via online links; such as music podcasts from radio shows. However, I'd like to be able to select where i'm putting that file rather than having it automatically go to the 'download' folder; followed by the need to then;
    - run azip,
    - navigate to download folder and open it
    - long press on the file
    - select move
    - navigate to desired location and then place the file.

    So i was wondering if there is a File Manager app that works in the same manner as the Windows' "save as" function. Where you can select the location during the process, so that moving the file after it's successfully downloaded is no longer necessary.

    Thanks.

    Try a different web browser, like Boat (or Boat Mini) or Opera. They can have their file locations changed to save as a different directory as default.

    Based on what you're saying, would it be wrong to assume that what i hoping to get is not possible?

    I download different things, so a simple switch of the default location would really help as i would have to go through the same steps when downloading other typs of files.

    appreciate the help though. :)

    I use Opera Mobile and left it at default settings. You can select where you want the file to go when saving. Just pull down the menu and select other. You can then navigate to the folder you want to save in.
