Is there a way to download a file from an S3 bucket using Android's DownloadManager?

I can currently download an apk file from Dropbox doing this:

DownloadManager.Request request = new DownloadManager.Request(Uri.parse(url));

request.addRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/");


final DownloadManager manager = (DownloadManager) getSystemService(Context.DOWNLOAD_SERVICE);

final long id = manager.enqueue(request);

Now what I want to do is replace "url" with my Amazon URL. When I do this, the download just stays at 0% and just gets stuck there.

Is there any way to do this?

By the way, the Amazon URL I pass in contains the AWSAccessKeyId, Expires, and Signature parameters. The URL looks like this:""&Expires=""&Signature=""

This will work:

request.addRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/");
