Download Manager for iOS version

A download manager is not just necessary, it’s critical for a browser. One of the shortcomings of the iOS version of Safari is that it doesn’t have a download manager. As a result, downloading a file involves literally waiting till the download is complete—in the meantime, you have no idea if the download has paused, connection has been timed out or if it has been altogether aborted.

Firefox for iOS implements a limited version of a download manager and it has changed the game completely by having a download manager. As a user of Brave, I would request you to do the same and introduce a full featured download manager for the iOS versions of Brave replete with a pause/resume/cancel button.

We have a couple items in the backlog regarding this (see here and here. It is something we intend to build out, but it is currently not scheduled for development. We will reevaluate and see what resources we have for something like this. Thanks for reaching out and letting us know what matters to you!
