Download the media files on your PowerApp

Any idea how to download the gif file in your PowerApps. I need to use the spinner on another app and doesn't have the file on my PC. Can't see the save as option on PowerApps.

For info, another workaround for the lack of a download option is this.

First, save the app locally as an msapp file using the File > Save As option.

An msapp file is just a ZIP file with an msapp extension. On your local machine, rename the file so that it has a ZIP extension, and uncompress the file. There, you'll find an "Assets" sub folder and all the media files will be there.

Can you clarify, is this a one off task that you want to carry out to retrieve an image that you don't have (as opposed to adding a download feature for users of your app)?
