  • MiTube Allows Non-Jailbroken iPhones to Stream, Download from YouTube



    This one clearly falls under the banner of "get it while you still can."

    MiTube is now available through iTunes. What's MiTube, you ask? It's a sweet new app that lets you stream and download videos right from YouTube. Of course, the jailbreak community is already well versed and familiar with MxTube on Cydia, which, for the most part, does what MiTube now does for non-jailbroken handsets.



    As with other apps that have surprisingly made it to the App Store, it isn't clear how long MiTube will be permitted to exist on hallowed Apple ground. But if you scoop it up now, you can enjoy some pretty nifty features, chief of among them is the ability to download MP4s of YouTube flicks and save them directly to your iOS device.

    Free from Max Weisel, the app is and compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. It does, however, require iPhone OS 3.0 or later. Get it here.

    Update: The app has been pulled from the Appstore.

      Turn apple kill switch off so apple can't delete it of your devices later.

      Sorry this might be a dumb question, but what's so bad about this app that apple shouldn't have approved it? Maybe with jailbreaking now being "legal" apple might start allowing more apps such as this one which would normally only be available on cydia?

      I don't see how it's illegal. It just violates YouTube's TULA.

      Otherwise, that is awesome. Sounds better than the YouTube app.

      Yes. It just won't be in the App Store and you won't receive updates.
