MxTube 2.0 available soon!

MxTube Every once and a while we still get random emails asking us what ever happened to MxTube 2.0, a YouTube video downloader. Well, ever since we first learned that the developer of MxTube was working on MxTube 2.0, I have been keeping a close eye on his blog and it seems he is finishing up the development of MxTube 2.0 and we should see it in the next few days!

Below is some info about MxTube 2.0 via the developer. Check out our post on MxTube for more info about the app.

In the last status update the background downloader was communicating with MxTube but I hadn’t implemented the actual downloading. Turns out due to some NSRunLoop problems that I didn’t figure out until it was too late, NSURLDownload and NSURLConnection were not working. After having a friend (banana) suggest implementing libcurl, I coded it in but it was reporting all files to be 0kbs big :P. Thanks to tnt the problem has been solved! I plan to have MxTube 2.0 out for pwnd 2.0 phones within 5 days. It will be available on Cydia for download.


PS: Sorry if this post is not formatted so well, running on 1 hour of sleep isn’t a good thing. :)

This is one of my favorite apps, it even made it to the list of my Top Ten Apps. Can’t wait until it is released!

    later i was kinda curious and looked went to the installer and entered uninstall and there was NO mxtube! BUT: it still shows the icon in my main menu. What happened? what do i do?!

    will i lose the videos i already downloaded?
