  • 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.

      this is great! it sure beats the old sendfile and download plugins. The media player is far better as well.

      thanks

      I can log into the site above, (created an account, looks interesting/fun)

      The second part of this requires the riptunes installer which isnt available in cydia yet. I'll try again later tonight or tomorrow.

      This app kix azz... I have been having a ball downloading all the single songs ive always wanted... I SSH them into my computer and import them into iTunes.
      The update is also great, but one thing thats still missing is a cache or something for the search results. Its such a pain to have to do the same search over and over from the beginning for the same band, if your going to download a few songs.
      I am going to donate (1st time) in the hopes that it may help motivate you to incorporate this function!

      Everyone should donate really this is just fantastic.
      I find this logic absolutely hilarious.

      Everyone should donate so the developer can be rewarded and encouraged in his work. But the people creating the content downloaded with the app can go pound sand?

      What hypocrisy.

      Amazing huh.. getting on people to DONATE money for an app thats used to circumvent paying the artist for their work..

      is there no solution to have dtunes songs imported straight to the ipod library on the iphone??

      it kinda defeats the purpose if you have to ssh songs to the computer import into itunes then back to your phone. might as well use limewire or acquisition. need a way to add them to ipod library on the go.

      any have a solution?

      Naw, I think not. If you don't like the SSH thingie, play 'em in dTunes.

      There will be updates ... some may address your ideas. But I'm concerned if it's tooooo easy, it will become a target . The real benefit is searching and getting a song to your *P* quickly and easily. What you do with it afterwards is non-consequential.

      JMHO

      Found a site, Plorf.com with direct mp3 links,
      problem is, the download link is sent through a php script,
      making it useless on the iPhone. (as far as I can tell.)

      Would love to see the option to have multiple bookmarked sites.

      I think that the only thing that would make this better is if it woud sync the music to the iPod application...if any one knows how to do that left me no

      same as islsk but more work. Good info but i will stick with islsk
    1. tattoojack's Avatar
      tattoojack -
      and, islsk syncs to ur music folder, even after you sync with itunes and itunes removes them, u can resync em. Or ssh the mp3s off the phone and put em on with itunes
