Look first...

I want to add that oftentimes there actually is a way to change the folder location, you just have to look around a bit. For instance, I downloaded TomTom Home just out of curiosity: yes, it defaults to using the downloads folder, but there is a panel in the preferences that allows you to change folder locations. sometimes you need to get a little more creative - looking in the preference plist file, or searching through the application bundle for other plists - but if the app was even remotely well-designed you can usually find some way of directly changing the storage location.
