    The Safari Download Plug-In doesn't show me the "Download!" option when I navigate to .pdf links. Is there any way to save the pdf I'm currently viewing in safari into a folder in the ipod touch so I can view it later?

    Well you can try Idownloadmanger from the App Store. It'll download the PFD and save it. But it'll stay in the app.

    Thanks for the reply but Idownloadmanager doesn't exist as an app.

    Well I was hoping to go for a free solution as safari download manager is a paid app on Cydia.

    But the issue is that the safari dl plugin doesn't show the download option page when I navigate to '.pdf' links.
