    Download this app before it gets pulled by Apple

    Lets you download YouTube videos and it works great

    From the makers of MxTube in Cydia

    Wonder how long it's going to take Apple to pull this one, or maybe this is allowed now lol

    Thanks for the find. I doubt they will yank it since it doesn't contain any easter egg. I really missed the MxTube.

    Edited: just ran the app and it asks for donation via paypal so that may be an issue for Apple?

    Downloaded. Thanks for the tip! I have missed two great apps since the iphone release for not being quick enough.

    1. Netshare
    2. Flashlight icon ( enables tethering )

    =/

    Off topic, but since it's an official app, is there anyway to download and install that flashlight app without jailbreaking?

    No unless someone downloaded it and shared it with you via iTunes

    Btw I get a FAST connection via wifi so whoever is having issues, it must be your internet connection.

    just spotted you can save any videos you download in iTunes via the apps tab down the bottom under file sharing

    Just a quick tip, if you want the downloads to be super super fast, click out of the app, and then click back into it. You will get super fast speeds for a second, and if you keep doing it the download is done in like two seconds.

    Kind of weird haha

    Downloaded. This is feature that has not been allowed on apps up until now. I don't know if Apple is relaxing its rules again or what.

    This app is definitely going to get pulled. It uses Admob analytical code for advertising.

    Has anyone gotten an HD download to play yet? Mine downloads HD without problem, but then it tries to play it then returns to the menu.

    Mine gets right to finishing the download of HD, then crashes. When I reopen the app, it restarts the download all over again, and repeats.

    If I start the download and it's slow, pausing and un-pausing seems to help. Only downloaded two HD quality so far, but both have worked fine.

    No, they aren't bad. It's just another Ad agency that was incidentally acquired by Google after Apple tried to acquire them. (They ended up creating iAds)

    I just got this app and downloaded a high quality 7-minute video relatively quickly. It works well, though I'm not really sure why I would want to download a video which I could stream and save the space.

    from the creators blog:

    "I just received a call from Apple Legal. MiTube will be taken out of the App Store within the hour. It’s currently 33 in top free apps! All in less than 24 hours."

    i might be missing something as well but I too cannot see the benefit of downloading and storing something I can easily stream in the first place. Anybody care to shed light on why this is a big deal?

    Damn that sucks but it's to be expected I suppose. Hopefully it's just because of the AdMob advertising.
