One of the downsides to Safari for iOS is that the built-in, Apple-developed application doesn't allow users to upload content from an iPhone to a website. Fortunately, a new jailbreak tweak called "Safari Upload Enabler" allows users to upload content from within Safari itself. The tweak can be downloaded in Cydia for $1.99. It's already possible to upload content from within iOS applications (like pictures and videos). However, in Safari for iOS it's not possible to upload files to a website featuring a big old "Upload" button. This is because Apple has blocked the ability to do this in the built-in Safari app. However, Safari Upload Enabler removes this block. Once installed, users can upload content to the Web from within Safari, via a new pop-up window. As noted by iDownloadBlog, this will only work provided users have loaded the desktop version of a website (the mobile Web version won't work). Furthermore, the tweak isn't compatible with iOS 4.1 and below. As mentioned, Safari Upload Enabler can be downloaded in Cydia for $1.99. Take a look at the tweak, and if you're interested in downloading files via Safari instead, check out Safari Download Manager.
