If you’re a YouTube user, then you will be glad to know that popular jailbreak tweak YourTube has been updated for iOS 6.
In case you’re not aware, YourTube by CocoaNuts is a companion tweak for Google’s YouTube app that adds features to it such as the ability to download videos for offline viewing, ability to block ads and control the quality of the video for streaming and downloading to make it even better.
Here’s the complete list of features:
- Download videos for offline viewing
- Blazingly fast downloads
- Switch quality on the fly
- Hide all advertisements
- Always enable AirPlay
- Unlock region-locked videos
- Import videos into the Videos app
- Import music into the Music app
- Gorgeous, native user interface
- Imported media gets synced back to your iTunes library
The beauty of the tweak is that it is so well integrated with the YouTube app that it feels as the add-on features are native part of the app.
After installing the tweak, you will notice a download button on the top left corner while playing the video. When you tap on button, it will prompt to select the quality of the video. It will then start downloading the video in the background while you continue to watch the video. It also comes with built-in WarpCore download accelerator, which will open multiple connections to download the video faster. The number of max connections can be configured via the Settings app. It opens 6 connections by default.
You can access the downloaded videos via the menu option on the top right corner and tap on Downloads. You have the option to save the video to the Camera roll, import it to the Videos app or import just the Audio to the music library.
You can also switch the quality of the video by clicking on the Share button and tapping on the Switch Quality button.
The tweak also blocks the video and banner ads by default and also the brandings. It also allows you to ignore restrictions.
I was really impressed by how well YourTube tweak worked with the YouTube app.
YourTube for iOS 6 is available for $3.99 for new users and available as a free update for users who purchased YourTube and YourTube HD. If you’re a heavy YouTube user then this is a must buy and worth every penny.
