There will surely be times when you really like a video on YouTube and like to save it on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Apple by default do not provide that feature, neither do they allow any app which can do that for you. Jailbreaking an iPhone or iPod Touch has its own advantages and increases the potential and possibilities of the device much beyond what Apple intends. The YourTube app lets you download Youtube videos directly from the native YouTube client, but then it is not Free.

Well, now there is a free alternative for YourTube, called WatchMob which is available in Cydia under BigBoss and Planet iPhones repositories. This free application gets added to you springboard and allows you to search YouTube for videos and download them.

The application lets you search for the videos and even lists all the previously downloaded videos neatly and allows them to be played back. Videos downloaded with WatchMob will not show up under your device’s native library, and can only be played through the application itself.

  1. Dude plz help me to unlock 3.1.3 or atleast to JB….I have unnecessarily updated to 3.1.3…plz help me otherwise their is no use in carrying the phone….intially when it was 3.1.2 I jailbreak without installing cydia I found no option to install cydia so I thought to update n Install Cydia and then downgrade to unlock… 

    • Please don’t leave comments under unrelated articles. I had already responded to your earlier request in another post. There is nothing we can do. Downgrading from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2 works only if you have saved the Cydia SSH hashes before upgrading to 3.1.3

  2. i have installed watchmob on my iphone 4 but i cannot download anything. i can search for a particular video but once i tap it to download it’s closing the app… please help!
