    I have downloaded from my iphone many times and i have never had a problem. There is a chance that you can get a virus but its apple, come on. You probably won't get a virus using an apple product. If it were an android phone it'd be a different story. You should be fine in my opinion.

    it depends on the file, really. who's uploaded what. no way to know for sure unless you know its from a trusted source.

    Gotta have Safari Download Manager or Google Chrome (I think chrome has a built-in download manager)…

    Safari Download Manager works best.

    For Chrome you need Chrome download manager or download enabler.

    I use the dolphin browser from the App Store to download files from the Internet when iFile/Safari doesn't suffice.
