Safari Download Manager For iOS Finally Gets Support For iOS 5 [Jailbreak]

It took a while, but Safari Download Manager finally supports iOS 5.

One of the first tweaks I used to install after jailbreaking previous iPhones was Safari Download Manager, a terrific little package that does exactly as its name suggests: allows you to download files right within mobile Safari. The downside to this tweak, however, has long been its lack of support for iOS 5. That is, until it got updated today.

Safari Download Manager version 2.0 finally supports iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches running the latest iOS 5 firmware. And that’s not all.

The update also delivers a completely rewritten “downloading core,” a completely rewritten user interface, Retina-ready file icons, support for more than 10 languages, and more. Furthermore, you can now tap and hold images to “save as.”

The tweak’s developer, Dustin Howett, promises this is “a far more flexible downloader, with many more file types than before.”

Safari Download Manager version 2.0 is available to download now via Cydia’s BigBoss repository for just $2.
