Default Can I tap a link to download an mp3?

If I go to a webpage with a link to an mp3, I had hoped that the long press menu would give me an option to download the file, as you do with a pc. This seems not to be the case. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Yes, it should work. Hold onto the link, select save link as...and you're done.

You should be buying your music.... just saying.

Hmm, it's as simple as that, thanks. I just assumed that 'save link' wasn't the same as 'save what the link points to! It's not the link itself I want to save.

And whilst it's easy to assume that I want to steal music, in fact I want to be able to download legitimate podcasts and other non-music sound files whilst on holiday, and I don't want to use a podcatcher.
