Safari Download Manager Now iOS 5 Compatible
Safari Download Manager, the long-awaited download manager for jailbroken devices that gives Mobile Safari the ability to download and save files to the file system, is now iOS 5 compatible as of version 2.0. The developer, Dustin Howett, has been working on the update from as far back as the introduction of iOS 5. The hard work has certainly come far as Safari Download manager will work on every iOS device, on every iOS 5 firmware release so long as you are jailbroken.
The download manager sees some changes to its user interface, which are for the better. The new interface beautifully shows you where your download path is and the name of the file you are about to download before prompting you whether you’re sure you want to download the file or just cancel the download. Once you tap download, the manager gets to work and you can see the downloads in real-time with the loading bars – from here you can exit the interface with the done button or simply cancel all downloads if that is your desire.
Once a download finishes, you will see a prompt with several options including:
- Open in iBooks
- Open in Kindle
- Open in iFile
- Open in Dropbox
Safari Download Manager is one of the best jailbreak tweaks ever make for the iOS platform. This is not to be taken lightly. The download manager adds functionality to the iOS operating system, which when paired with a file browser such as iFile, can make the mobile device almost as useful as a personal computer in terms of file management. It gives you the ability to manage files and store them, even to transfer them to another machine if necessary.
Safari Download Manager 2.0 for iOS 5 devices can be downloaded right now from Cydia. It is located in the BigBoss repository for $5.

Icab Mobile has its own built in download manager, and then you can just use iFile to move the files you want. Icab Mobile has been available for ages.

iFile doesn't download. You can open downloaded files with it.
But anyway, as someone pointed out, I just use iCab. It can download and upload, no waiting for compatible tweaks.
