    Is there an alternative to safari download manager? I really hate the fact that the current version does not work on iOS 5.

    There have been a couple of threads about it in the last 2 week, no other package are available at the moment, you can alternatively use Atomic web browser which have a build in download manager.

    iFile.

    Almost anything you try to download will give you the option of opening in iFile at which point you can put it anywhere you want.

    I think they are more interested on the ability to download on the background and to stop, pause and resume downloads, that is not offer by iFile

    Then they can go with Atomic Web like you said, but for basic downloading iFile works great.

    Found the PERFECT alternative

    I found the perfect alternative no even if you are on iOS 6 you should change:

    Safari Downloader is what you need:

    -Free

    -Alot more powerful than safari download manager (on a 1.8MB/S WiFi, a 5 MB File download in 10 second and on safari download manager downloads in 1 min. Why?? Because safari downloader as larger brandwidth limit!

    -Looks better(Amazin UI!)

    -As more Open in... features

    -Support Alot more file type

    -If you used the duo Bridge-Safari download manager you can buy Safari Downloader+ you can export you media (and as no brandwidth limit)

    I recommend it 200%. I looked at this post in the past and when I found out about safari downloader I told myself: DAMN!!! I have to show everybody about this

    Don't use safari download manager you would regret your choice but if you do its your choice

    Enjoy and thanks to the dev that made this
    (btw this is not a FAKE advertisment for Safari Downloader even if it looks like one im just a person like you all):D

    I've been using "Safari Downloader Plus"

    It's pretty good

    I use the DolphinBrowser. For me personally, no reason to install an extra tweak for something that can be done built in on a 3rd party browser from the App Store. It works really well.

    I personally use safari download enabler

    Anyways, someone could also argue that there's no reason to install an extra tweak to get the faster safari experience (tweaks like nitrous or that other one that was released for iOS 7.x) and also how safari is a more stable and faster experience than third party apps

    (I know there was huge speed improvements in safari in iOS 6 compared to iOS 5 and before and I want to say the same for iOS 7 but I don't think it's up to the stable level iOS 6.1+ safari was yet)

    I hear you and what you're saying. For me though, installing a tweak like Nitrous speeds up browsing across many areas of iOS so I install it and don't think twice. I don't download stuff often so in the rare times I do, it's very quick to just copy and paste the link in dolphin. I prefer that over having a tweak hooked into substrate and safari for the rare times I download something. For my uses, I don't have a reason to install a download manager when a great 3rd party browser already does it for free, stock.

    But I definitely install stuff that others have no use for lol. DietBar, TransparentVolume, and ProTube come to mind. :D

    Why did you have to revive a two year old thread that was made for iOS 5?
