    I'm working on a web-based app that makes use of some UIWebViews. One feature I want to add to the app is image saving. Basically, like what you can do in Safari. If you hold down on the image for ~3 seconds, it pulls up a pop-up prompt that asks if you want to save the image, or cancel.

    Is this possible to add to a normal UIWebView? If so, how do I do it?

    Looking at the APIs, it looks like your can't. Would love to be proved wrong though.

    Damn. That's...irritating. My app is entirely done aside from this small issue. And, for what the app does, saving images is a major part of it.

    If anyone knows of an alternate way to handle image saving in a UIWebView, please chime in!

    It might not be something to change for the UIWebView, but maybe something to change for the HTML code itself.

    You might have to find something like: "-webkit-touch-saveimage: true". I just made that code up, but it might be out there. Try looking through the webkit documentation.
