Loadkit Download Manager for Windows 10

One of the demanding and most user voted feature from the end users has been the ability to download content in background on their Windows Phone devices. I have been hearing people right from the beginning of when Windows Phone 8.1 was launched, getting around numerous queries about background download feature on their phones. Queries like:

  • How do i download files in background on my Lumia ?
  • Is background download feature available on Lumia?
  • When will background feature be available on Windows Phone? (sigh)

With the release of Windows 10 (PC), possibilities are limitless. Hundreds and thousands of API's, ready to be exploited by the developers and create something which will not only make them proud, but the entire community will be grateful (like me). And folks, this is just the beginning.
