    Hi everyone,

    Is there a way where you can save files from Safari directly. I have a jailbroken phone with Safari DL. But you can just click on a link in Safari, and it wouldn't open the document or file for you, but instead save it to a folder?

    Thanks

    The Safari DL plugin will give you the option to save many kind of files: .*******, .mp3, .mp4 etc. They f
    go into var/mobile/Library/Downloads as was said. You can see them with dtunes, which also lets you download *******s and view mp4s and listen to mp3s.

    Thanks for your comments. I was actually at my univ website and wanted to save a word document on the website. Because safari can open it, it open a new web page with document. Is there a way I can tell safari not to open the document but to save it instead?

    I did some research and you can get an app called save my docs. The only problem is that you have to provide it with the link. If it's a website that requires a login, it wouldn't work.

    Thanks again
