    (Highly-inspired by GBATemp member Kartik's Multidownload homebrew for the 3DS)

    What is VitaDL?
    VitaDL is a small program which can download any file from a given HTTP link. Useful for if you're wanting to download something straight to your Vita that you can't normally view or download in the regular Web Browser app. (e.g. a VPK or a ZIP).

    Below is an example of downloading my avatar image straight from a link to the Downloads folder:

    What can it do?

    • As stated, downloads any type of file from a given HTTP link into a 'Downloads' folder on the root of your memory card.
    • Quick and easy-to-use; enter a link, click, and obtain your file!

    What can't it do? (currently)
    • Download from HTTPS links.
    • No progress bars or GUI or anything like that yet either.

    Shame you can't copy and paste links from the browser straight into VitaDL. Damn, Sony, why did you lock it down so much?
