    I tried to download a song in my MP3 app today, but nothing happened. The downloading icon appeared, but nothing ever downloaded. The progress bar kept flashing, but the download never started. I thought maybe it was my app, so I uninstalled it. However, now when I download ANY MP3 app from the play store, they all look exactly the same! Not only that, but the MP3s won't download. I ran my virus scanner, but it didn't detect anything. Help!!

    Welcome to Android Central! I'm assuming that if these MP3 downloaders are in the Play Store, they're legit--these kinds of apps can easily approach the borderline of being illegal, if they're downloading MP3s that aren't supposed to be free. Try going to the App Manager, select Download Manager, and Clear Cache/Clear Data, then Force Stop. Now try again.

    I tried that. It still doesn't work. I don't understand why all the music apps look the same when I open them. I don't think they're supposed to look like that. I will attach a picture.

    I have also formatted my SD card, rebooted my phone a million times, taken the battery out...nothing seems to be working

    It doesn't matter which app I use. I've downloaded several and they all end up looking exactly the same (even though they shouldn't). None are working.

    I'm trying to find out the name of the downloader app so I can look at the reviews in Google Play, to see if there are any similar issues that people are facing. Also to see if there is a developer email to contact.

    Please provide us with the names of the apps that have tried, so that we can research and see where the problem lies

    Welcome to Android Central! As with the OP, how about telling us which downloader you're using?

    I am having that exact same issue, I've tried about six or seven different apps and they all look the same, none of them work, my GF has the same phone as me (note 4) and hers looks exactly like the screen shots up top, she was also getting the disclaimer warnings for a couple days, they eventually stopped and she's now able to download everything. Any idea what I can do!? All my apps look different than hers does BTW.
