As an iPhone user, I particularly enjoy viewing YouTube video on iPhone. It’s so convenient and the video quality fit iPhone’s screen size perfectly. The limitation here is, I cannot view YouTube on-the-go or offline. The recent release of MxTube v1.5 is a great solution for me. This application lets you download and saves YouTube video on iPhone, and you can then view it offline. Pretty great for those users using 2G iPhone or without an limited data plan.

As we now MxTube is popular application which is listed as "Top 10 Apps Worth Jailbreaking Your iPhone to Get" category. Like other great iPhone applications, MxTube is only available for Jailbreak iPhone. You can install MxTube through Cydia for free. At the mean time, MxTube only supports for YouTube mobile, that is the version of YouTube you’re viewing on iPhone. Hopefully, it’ll support all YouTube video in the upcoming version.
