    Save To Phone's review

    Published: 2013-02-08, by .

    Save To Phone solves a lack on Android devices: provides a way to save resources to your SDcard from "share" button

    • Useful
    • HOLO layout
    • History
    • Built-in Android clipboards works pretty good
    • Benefits of the app aren't really clear

    "Save to your SDcard"

    "Sharing" button and the pop-up that shows up when you press it with all the sharing resources installed in your device is a typical native Android feature. However, there's a sharing resource missing, "Save to SDcard". "Save to Phone" is an app that allows users to easily save any files and other resources from "share" or "export" button. When the resource is text, it will be copied to the clipboard.

    Sounds like obvious or even simple, but this was a missing feature in your Android device. I'm pretty sure that things would be way easier for you having this handy option installed in your device. That's what Save To Phone does. Files destination in your SDcard can be chosen: actually, it can be set in a static or a dynamic way (ask for destination on every download). Files can also be renamed, open or deleted. In addition there's a download history for a faster access to your files.

    The app is set in a cute HOLO-like layout, although you won't probably launch it so much: your interaction with it will be reduced basically to choosing it from the "share" pop-up menu and let it do the work. The only catch of the "app" is that you can actually download files to your SDcard natively in your Android (for example, there's a "download" button accessible from your device "menu" button or by long-pressing the file). Some users, used to download files by this way can find this app not very useful. The added-value feature of this app is that you can do it more quickly from the "share" button as well as choose the destination directoy at your whim.

    Does exactly what it say. Perfect. Ignore the other reviews whining about YouTube videos. Those reviewers were too stupid to realise that the Share option on YouTube videos is only a link to the video and doesn't contain the actual video file, which is not the app's fault.

    Great, simple. Does what I expected. Asks me to rate occasionally. Can only save to one location without paying

    Error while saving, with Storage permission granted. It was just giving it a try with a jpeg file, so I don't know what's wrong with it. Hope this gets fixed, cuz I'm bored of sharing things to other Apps or to Google Drive. It takes unecessary steps. This app would be a must-have for a lot of people if it wasn't failing.
