  • Safari Download Manager [NEW IN CYDIA]


    Say there's a file you want to download while you're on the go. And all you've got is your iPhone. Maybe it's a movie your friend uploaded, or you want to access an ftp:// url, or you need to grab an mp3 off some band's site. What are you gonna do?

    Safari Download Manager, in Cydia now as a paid (just $2) package, is a nifty little tool to let you grab these files and more straight to ~/Library/Downloads on your iPhone. Users can configure which types of files you want downloaded using SDM (Safari Download Manager), although it comes pre-configured with most of the common sense file types. The extension allows you to download multiple files at once, and keep browsing while downloads are completing - you get a new tab at the bottom of Safari.app with a badge showing you how many downloads are currently going.



    The Downloads tab allows you to fully manage your downloads - you can clear the list of completed downloads one at a time or all at once, and the same is true for canceling current downloads. A progress indicator shows you speed, percentage, and size of each active download.

    Built by Dustin Howett and Youssef Francis, SDM is a steal at $2 for anyone who wants to do mobile downloading. I've been using it a few days now, and the latest version works smooth and the way you'd want it to.

    This is a huge step up from the Safari Download Plugin of the past - which took over your entire Safari.app the duration of the download, and was extremely unconfigurable.



    Here's their description:
    This extension brings a full download manager to Safari, complete with running and controlling multiple downloads, accessible via a new toolbar item. This is an improvement on other existing extensions that take over the currently displayed document to display status information, hindering your navigation. Safari Download Manager (SDM) allows you to continue browsing while downloads are taking place (and can even download in the background, as Safari will not exit if there are any pages loaded).
    Users can configure filetypes to download and add their own extensions and mimetypes to the download list.

      When in landscape mode, the back, forward, add, tab etc icons are a bit higher than they should be, it's annoying as I like everything perfect!!!

      I tried adding a new filetype, but it didn't seem to work, unless I'm doing something wrong.
      Try installing dTunes, from ther u can go to the torrent site of choice, the actual instructions are in the app, good luck 

      Edit Poseidon: Discussion (or mention) of warez related apps will not be tolerated. Nice try on the creative way to type it though.

      It looks great, but I don't need to look back on what I download. I just use Safari Download Plugin and browse and view with dTunes and iFile. And they're free. If I had money for my account, sure, I'd give it a go. But not now.

      You can't since 3.0, you'll have to use SSH and then sync it through iTunes

      does the download stop once i exit safari? or does it continue in the background? i would definitely buy it if it does that.

      Thanks! That works great on wifi, but I was hoping to be able to download torrents using the free t-mobile edge proxy, meaning that I have to download using safari.

      Maybe someone will figure something out!

      Love this plugin, but I'm having a problem no one yet has mentioned.

      This plugin seems to "break" the google website.

      With the downloader enabled in Mobile Substrate, I can search google for results, but clicking a link does nothing. I can only view links by opening in a new tab.

      For instance, say I open up safari, do a google search for iphone.

      Google displays the search results, but then when I click the link to go to page nothing happens. the address bar drops down for a second just like it was loading up, but then immediately disappears. if I select open in new window, the page comes up but all links do the same thing unless opened in a new tab.

      If you need more info on this please let me know. It might be a conflict with another plugin I have but I know that this problem goes away if I disable Downloader in Mobile Substrate.

      Also, it seems that I can only download attachments from Gmail if the attachments are zipped. Mp3s, text, documents, all display in the iphone viewer, but that might be a gmail thing with the way they handle attachments rather than a plugin issue. I just download as zip and use iFile to extract.

      Cheers!

      [EDIT] with the update that was released last night, 1.3.0, I no longer encounter this issue.

      Nice work!!

      I added this to the stock filetype list in 1.3.0, as well as a lot more.
