iOS Library For Easier Background Downloading Of Big Files With Resume

Some time ago I mentioned a library making it easy to perform concurrent downloads.

Here’s a library called TCBlobDownload specifically for the downloading of large files called TCBlobDownload from Thibault Charbonnier.

TCBLobDownload allows you to download large files using a blocks based interface with pause/resume capability, and concurrent downloading.  Downloads can automatically resume if a download has stopped and are placed in the same path.

As the readme states:

This library uses NSOperations to download big files (typically videos, music… well: BLOBs) using NSURLConnection in background threads.

You can find TCBlobDownload on Github here.

A very handy library if you need to download some large files in an app.
