A lot of people ask us for application suggestions to download videos from Youtube directly on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Some have already appeared on the App Store (such as MiTube), but unfortunately Google’s video site prohibits this functionality and causes Apple to eliminate any attempt to circumvent the rules.
But now and then, an app appears that escapes supervision and provides the possibility of downloading, as currently happens with Downloader Free.
The application allows you to download videos from Youtube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, MetaCafe and some other video sites on your device. And the interesting thing is that it already converts to a format compatible with iOS even videos in Flash, AVI or WMV, among others.
Once downloaded on the device, you can recover the video in iTunes (in the File Sharing part of the application) and transfer it to your computer.
Most likely, this app will soon be eliminated from the App Store, because it is not allowed by Youtube. So, if you want to guarantee yours soon, run and download the free version at this link. There is a paid version that eliminates advertisements and 10 seconds of waiting before downloading, but we do not recommend paying, as in the future it may not work anymore.
