Answer Source

finally after about 1years(:D) this is one of best solutions :

using this library by add to project with library ,

or with Android Studio dependencies :

 dependencies {
    compile 'com.mani:ThinDownloadManager:1.2.5'

it's one of best and fast (any) file Download library , Too is so simple to use and customize.

for example in my question(in 1 year ago) that i wanted to have Multiple-File-Download , at ease can specify thread pool size by :

ThinDownloadManager downloadManager = new ThinDownloadManager(DOWNLOAD_THREAD_POOL_SIZE); 

//DOWNLOAD_THREAD_POOL_SIZE = number of threads.


Edit for answer to @Bhuvi , (set destination downloaded file)

  1. Define file destination :

            String fileName ="file name";
            File root = android.os.Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
            File dir = new File(root.getAbsolutePath() +`subfolder name`);
            if (dir.exists() == false) {
            final Uri destinationUri = Uri.parse(dir + fileName);
  2. then setDestinationURI(your path) for ThinDownloadManager

    downloadRequest = 
      new DownloadRequest(downloadUri)setDestinationURI(destinationUri).setPriority(DownloadRequest.Priority.HIGH)
