that the restriction is not with Safari but with the iPod Touch/iPhone.
Apple does not allow downloads directly to either of these devices, apps, music, video and pictures have to be installed on the devices directly from iTunes or from the iTunes store.
While this is not the definitive answer, it would not surprise me if the Opera-Mini comes up against the same problem as Safari.
The OS under which it runs is where the restriction is.
Of course, I could be wrong, I am not an Opera-Mini user.
Now that Apple has allowed Opera-Mini for the iPod Touch/iPhone, does it get around what I've been told is the mp3 file download restriction that Safari has? I don't have the Touch, but people have told me that when they go to mp3 file DOWNLOAD links, Safari will stream rather than actually locally save the file, and that's by design.
Yeah, I've heard of the plugins. But I'm wondering if Opera's Mini browser simply allows for direct downloading of mp3 files to its browser download repository? The question is for someone who wants to temporarily (because of circumstances) avoid having to use iTunes and PC syncing, so I'd appreciate it if we stick to the question of whether Opera Mini can do this or not. Not interested in paid podcast catcher apps at this time, either.
