  • dTunes - like iTunes, but free!

    dTunes, a new app by Richard Shearman, lets you grab all the free music you'd like, downloaded straight to your iPhone using some magic to combine SeeQPod's streaming .mp3 service and Jonathan Misurda's useful Safari Download Plugin.

    Download dTunes (available via Cydia now on the MMi repo), and once installed, tap the magnifying glass or the Search Seeqpod button. dTunes will bring up a window with Seeqpod in it - simply search for the music you'd like, and when found, tap the song.

    dTunes will bring up a download screen, and pull the .mp3 from Seeqpod's source to your iPhone. Then head back to the main screen of dTunes, and simply tap the song you'd like to hear to play it! dTunes includes a media player directly in it, so you don't have to switch applications, etc - its an all in one solution.

    And yes, it even works via 3G and EDGE. Great for when you're out and about, and hear a song you remember you want to grab at home (which I do all the time) - now you can just open dTunes and get it for free.

    Please also check out the dev's site, and send him a donation if ya like what he's done.

      I have mxtube. and it only downloads youtube vids.
      But there are many other streaming sites now that you can view on your iphone. like dailymotion, apple trailers etc.

      and when I view these sites dTunes gives the option for download. which I did. unfortunately. it doesnt show up in the list. Only mp3 files.

      As ringman mentioned this app was basically put together over the course of a day so I know it doesn't have many features. It was really just a concept to suit the requirements ringman posted in a forum post.

      If there is enough response then I might make a few changes.

      Thanks for the great app.
      Can you add a change that you can view video files.

      I love this app. Portable Piracy! Yay!
      wonder how long this will last, before the RIAA steps in?

      Great Job!

      Please keep at this app. It is the best app period. I hope you can find a way to move the files into your songs playlist similar to soul seek app that was on 1.x firmware.

      I love this app congrats on a huge success!

      If there were any legality questions, it's be towards Seeqpod, not dTunes. And you run into the issue of them not hosting anything... Moot point really.

      That being said - this app is so cool. I've already used it out and about a couple times when I heard a cool song on the radio. Video support would be awesome too.

      Seriously can we donate somewhere? For all the app store apps I refuse to buy and all the cydia apps I get for free, they mean nothing compared to this. This and cycorder deserve to get donations simply because they are the 2 best apps released to date and yet neither one is asking for donations!

      Everyone should donate really this is just fantastic.

      I agree, I thought this was just a quicker/more streamlined IPOD player when I downloaded it..

      When I could download the musc..i was truly surprised!

      Get it!

      you can get it to stop asking you to download by adding the bossprefs plugin to turn safari dl off.

      So is this a mini limewire???
      My iPhone isn't jailbroken anymore you see due to me having to restore it everyday at least twice. That's why I'm staying away from 3rd party app

      Amazing app - goes without saying.
      Other than the volume control problem, very few bugs for a first release(?) too!
      3 suggestions to make this app even better:

      1. Many of us are using this app without 3G and cant download a song right when we think of it, or hear it for the first time. It would be so nice to a 'search que' - a list that can be edited to without being connected to the internet, then when one connects to the net, they can click on items in the list to search for that.

      2. Find song name via lyrics. I always hear a song and know some lyrics, but don't know the song. This eliminates a web search.

      3. Increased functionality of the music player. It works great as is, but the last song keeps repeating when you get to the end of your downloaded songs. It would be nice if the music player had all the same features and interface as the iPod app.

      Just wanted to chime in with my thanks as well. Seeqpod was good, but this is just what it needed.
      my new favorite program....

      this app is amazing but leaves the download and stream option when you uninstall the app you have to reunlock and rejailbreak just to get that anoying option out of the software.
