Creating a download link is usually an easy task. All we need to do is use an anchor tag
<a>, and add the reference URL pointing to the file. But some file types pose a technical problem – PDF, image and text files will open in the browser instead of being downloaded when a user clicks on the relevant link(s).
In the past, complicated setups and hacks on the server side were required to download these files (PDF, image, text, etc) by force. For that reason, HTML5 has a new attribute called
download, which is much easier to implement.

Using Download Attribute
download attribute does two things: download a file by force, and rename the file with the name specified in the attribute upon downloading.
For example, we have here a PDF and an Image file that are named randomly.
<a href="file/e4ptK9qd7bGT24e.pdf">Download PDF</a> <a href="file/KU7Ba93M7t7ghbi.jpg">Download Image</a>
So, without the
download attribute, these two files will open in the browser.
But when we add the
download attribute like so:
<a href="file/e4ptK9qd7bGT24e.pdf" download="10 Things You Should Know About Passion.pdf">Download PDF</a> <a href="file/KU7Ba93M7t7ghbi.jpg" download="wii.jpg">Download Image</a>
The files will be downloaded and renamed, as shown in the following screenshot.
We have created a demo page for you to see this attribute in action.
HTML5 has introdued some new elements and attributes that make life easier for web developers. This
download attribute is indeed a very handy addition. Unfortunately, the browsers are slow to catch up – it’s currently only supported on Firefox 20+, Chrome 14.0 and Opera 15.0.
Part of the fun in travelling is exploring new places. When Internet access is limited, some of us may have to revert to using printed maps. However, if you are on Android, there is an app called OsmAnd, an offline-mapping app that can serve as your GPS-enabled navigation solution.
OsmAnd has a large database of maps that you can download to your Android device. The app also comes with offline search features that include directions, addresses, points of interest, GPS navigation, safety features and expandable plugins to help you get the most out of this mapping app.

Start the app and head over to Settings > Data Management > Download button (as per screenshot) to access the download section. You have over 200 downloadable country maps to choose from. Here is the full list of supported country maps.
If you need to save on space, you can also choose to download the road-only maps instead of the full ones. To download, simply tick the boxes and press the download button that appears at the bottom of the screen.
Offline Search & Navigation
With OsmAnd, you can navigate your way with your downloaded maps without an Internet connection. Both the Search and the Navigation functions work offline. You just need to turn on your GPS.
The app will automatically use the GPS function on your device to determine your current location and look for the appropriate map. This will load up your required map when you start the app.
On the bottom left side of the screen, look for the Options button and tap on it to open a list of menus. Next, tap on Search.
You can search for addresses and points of interest or use filters to narrow down your search results.
In this example, we will demonstrate using the address search function to navigate to a location. Tap on the House icon to go to the address search. Input the address of your destination accordingly.
From here, you can choose whether to start navigating, to add this destination as a waypoint, to have the app show the destination on the map or to add the location to your favorites.
To start navigating, just tap on Directions. Choose between directions for driving, cycling or walking. Tap on Start navigation.
This is basically what your map will look like.
While the map designs may need some sprucing up, OsmAnd offers a few other features that may benefit you in your travels:
- Safety – Enable day / night view, speed limit display, speed-dependant map zooming, and location sharing.
- Bicycle and Pedestrian – The maps also include options for foot, hiking, and bike paths with special routing and display mode.
- Plugins – OsmAnd has a free plugin to mark your parked car location anywhere on the map with or without a timer and another one  to display contour lines and hillshade views on the map.
There are a few limitations to using OsmAnd. It only allows up to 10 free downloads (e.g. offline maps, online and tile maps, voice data, updates). The paid version costs .07, which removes this limit and gives you added features like Wikipedia POIs (good for sightseeing).
The map file sizes can be overwhelming on your device. It does not have a world basemap so if you are travelling across several countries, you need to have the country maps downloaded into your device. There are also comments by past users about the map not being user-friendly enough.
If however you are an avid traveller, this app may be a good investment for your travels. Let us know if you will be getting it.
For one thing, it is available for over-the-air update via Settings > General > Software Update, but you should know that it is more than 1 GB in size. Depending on your Internet speed, this update is going to take a while.
Alternatively, you can try to do the update and installation manually, which is where this post comes in. Remember to run a backup first before proceeding.
