    Default 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.

    This app does have alot of potential and makes the iPhone more and more like an extension of my MacBook. Also the dev seems very on top of taking suggestions and has been updating daily with minor bug fixes. I would highly recommend throwing down the cash on this one

    What's the difference between this and the Safari Diwnload plugin 2.0 by Jonathan Masurda? The later is a free Cydia application that I've been using for a while with good result.

    This download manager is great, but the download speed is very slow.

    Does anyone have any idea how I could go about downloading .torrent files? Just the .torrent file, not the actual torrent itself. It would be helpful for me because I could just add the downloaded .torrents to my desktop client after downloading on the go.

    I tried adding a new filetype, but it didn't seem to work, unless I'm doing something wrong.

    Yeah, it saves all downloads to var/mobile/Library/Downloads. So from there just transfer it through SSH or usb.

    The Safari Download Plug-In ties up MobileSafari.app so you can't use it while downloading. Also, you can't pause downloads, resume, or have a nice list of previous downloads with Safari Download Plug-In.

    That said, I've bought it and DHowett has made a VERY useful addition to Safari!
