    Question Saving music files from the web

    I'm a music fan and surf and belong to a lot of sites that share music legally.
    They own it and allow you to download it, but iPad only allows you to play it.

    Is it possible to change settings or get some app that will allow me to save the music?

    One example site is modularpeople.com.

    The iPad's default web browser, Safari, cannot download music files. However, here, it sounds as though the files you're referring to are being streamed, which is an entirely different problem. The Internet radio app, TuneIn, allows you to record music that is streamed from an Internet radio station, so that might be something you would want to check out in the App Store.

    Hey Tim,

    Thanks so much for the help. I will check out that app for streaming music, but I am actually talking about downloading MP3's, remixes and such. I'd love to add them to my iTunes even.

    I doubt this exists, but I'm hopeful. Or maybe this can spur someone to build an app. :-D

    If your jailbroken, you can install "Safari download manager" in Cydia and it intergrates a download system right into your mobile safari! You can download files and unzip them or install them through "iFile". You also get that in Cydia too. Then you can download files on your iDevice from all over the net. Just no torrents.

    If you simply want to download an mp3 track then you can use the web browser that's in GoodReader.....



    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac. That annotation can be handwritten or typed and you can search the document for your typed annotations and bookmarks. On the latest version, PDF files can be scrolled horizontally or vertically.

    It can also play several formats of video and audio files too.

    Tim

    Hey, thanks so much for the help.

    I picked up good reader and it's awesome, truly the Swiss army knife of iPad apps.
    Quite a warm and rewarding welcome. :-D
