Currently, users can only attach images and photos to an email. If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone, a new jailbreak tweak, aptly called Attachment+ for Mail has just been released, which removes this limitation and allows users to attach any type of file to an email.
It seamlessly integrates with the Mail app, so after installing the jailbreak tweak, it replaces the Insert Photo or Video option from the copy/paste menu (when you tap and hold in the body of the mail), with a camera roll icon, which allows you to attach images and photos and a green button that allows you to attach any type of file from your iPhone’s file system.
When you tap on the green button, it opens an iFile like browser and allows you select any type of file from your iPhone’s filesystem. It also allows you to preview files, attach multiple files and compress files before attaching files.
Check out the video walkthrough of the app in action below:
Attachment+ is available on Cydia for $2.99. While you can always attach any type of files using iFile, we like the integration with the Mail app. You may also want to check out AnyAttach ($2.99), especially if you’re a Dropbox user, as it includes integration with the cloud-based file hosting service. Attachment+ is not compatible with iOS 6/iOS 6.0.1 currently.
