GDownload is dope! Great job.

@jerinjacob what exactly is the GDownloader method?
the same as using the web component like this
How to download a file and save it on your device

if yes, then isn’t that new method redundant somehow?

also downloading a file from the internet might take a little bit, so usually this would be an asynchronous method… but where is your GotFile event?

concerning the package name: usually the recommendation is to use separate package names for each extension…
see also https://groups.google.com/d/msg/app-inventor-open-source-dev/aSQda5uR-1k/sUcuiy6zAwAJ and https://groups.google.com/d/msg/app-inventor-open-source-dev/cKDxtYwJrEM/O_aOeYNPAQAJ

Tool for upcasing first letter of a word.

fyi: this and the reverse feature are already offered by the TextUtils extension from Appybuilder

I am sure, there is absolutely no problem to add methods/events/properties that already exists. People will choose extension that they like.

yes exactly
however let me recommend the extensions developers to focus on extensions or new methods, which provide something new, i.e. which is currently not possible using existing blocks or extensions…

Yes I agree that we should always make new methods. But for example, I actually didn’t know that TextUtils have that method.
