  • Attachment Saver - Save Mail.app Attachments


    Ever been frustrated by the iPhone Mail app's inability to view attachments of certain types? Ever been found yourself needing to save an attachment to disk somewhere so you could use it outside Mail.app? AttachmentSaver to the rescue.

    AttachmenSaver is a nifty little extension to the iPhone's Mail app that allows you to save attachments so you can access and view them using your favorite file manager (iFile recommended). It unlocks the ability to download *all* attachments of any type, whether supported by Mail or not, and save them into a folder on disk. For those emails with multiple attachments, it even conveniently provides the option to save all attachments in that particular email, accessible via the action menu in the toolbar (the one that usually contains the Reply/Forward buttons).

    It's in the Cydia store now at $1.99, a decent buy. Pick it up!

      Great. Another mod I can't get because it's in the Cydia store. Guess I'll have to wait for it to be cracked to download it and then find a way to donate $2 to the dev.

      ^ and why can't you buy the app through paypal system?
      All you need is a bank account to get a paypal acct.

      I agree! I just bought Attachment Saver tonight and have about five or six other paid Cydia apps that are fantastic add-ons to my 3GS.

      I don't think we would have seen this many great add-ons if there wasn't the cydia store. I am excited to see what will come out over the next few weeks

      When you use it with iFile (as well available in Cydia) you can directly jump to the folder it has been saved to or even open it with iFile e.g. it has a file extension not naturally supported by your iphone.

      Absolutely great!

      This thing works like a charm. This is the cool
      work around to
      actually edit email attachments (Word, Excel, etc.) directly on the phone without having to purchase QuickOffice Exchange version.

      I don't have Microsoft Exchange email.
      Once you save the file via AttachmentSaver find the file in iFile and then copy it to the Local Files folder of QuickOffice ( /var/mobile/Applications/LONG
      STRING*OF*NUMBERS*& LETTERS OF*WHATEVER*FOLDER*HAS*QUICKOFFICE/Documents). Once the attachment is there you open QuickOffice and edit then email out.

      Look out Blackberry! LOL.

      Well if paid apps like these keep coming, most kids like us won't be able to afford the add ons and were too young to have credit cards and I can't see my mum or dad letting me use their credit card.

      I probably won't resort the other way to obtain the add on

      You don't need a credit card to buy them thru paypal. Just a bank account works too. And if that's not an option for you either, you can go to almost any store now and buy a prepaid visa.
