Downloaded image should show in Android Gallery immediately
(1) Go to any web page that shows a picture (2) long tap and "save image" Result: Image is available in the browser's "Downloads" section, but NOT in the Android Gallery. "Open" shows a view of the image that does not allow any sharing activity. It only shows up in the Android Gallery (in folder "download") after a Media Scan, which happens at boot time or after unmounting USB. Expected: show image in Android Gallery instantaneously.
This works well, but I am not sure I am handling all of the garbage collection correctly. It also doesn't remove elements from the Gallery when they are deleted from the DownloadManager (they show up as thumbnails, but show blank pictures). So far the only solution I've seen for that is to "fake" mounting the directory: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4646913/android-how-to-use-mediascannerconnection-scanfile
