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

    I just got it, but how did this slip by Apple? This is a replacement for the Youtube app and Apple says you cant replace their apps. And is it even legal to download off of youtube?

    Exactly what SDK rule does this break? Let me guess, the "duplicate fuctionality" rule? I swear apple needs a kick in the teeth for that rule.

    My hope is that they're finally starting to abandon that rule, like when they allowed third party browsers into the app store. And YouTube is not illegal. It's got a reputation for being a pirate site, and some retarded RIAA executives would have you believe that it is, but trust me if it wasn't legal it wouldn't have lasted this long.

    Isnt this mxtube from cydia just renamed yourtube is much better though but this should do for un-jailbroken phones i guess.

    Cone to think of it, with the right lawyer, you could build a good case against apple in an anticompetition lawsuit over that rule.
    No wonder YouTube had to release their new app as a web app...

    Only problem is you cant let the app fall asleep or your download stops. Got to keep the phone active and not quit out of the app. If it worked in the background would be great!!!!!!

    Why is everyone saying this? iWoopie and others have existed on the official App Store with this functionality for ages.

    I don't know about MXtube, but Youtube.app uses the native iPod video player to play vids, so all you need to do, at least in IOS 3 is set double-tap home to iPod via activator (I'm fairly sure there's a native method too) and use it to re-enable playback after you leave the app.
