Unofficial CM10 Downloader Makes Finding Nightlies Easy
Few multi-device ROMs can boast the popularity or level of polish as CyanogenMod. Given the high level of functionality even found in some experimental builds, it’s often understandable to forget to download a nightly or even check to see if one is available. There is now an application helps out by checking for you automatically and grabbing it.
The application is called the Unofficial CM10 Downloader. Much like the popular GooManager application, it gives users the ability to download Nightlies, RCs, or Monthlies from an easy to use interface. Aside from easily finding the content, users can also use the scheduling feature in the application to check for and download new builds. For flashaholics, this is an excellent way of getting the Nightlies you need put directly on your phone. For everyone else, it’s a great way to get reminders on when the next long term build is ready.
You can get the application free from the Google Play Store, and it’s fairly easy to use. Just navigate around the various menus and set your settings and the app will act accordingly. For additional info, you can check out the original thread by XDA Forum Member Mark2dp.
