Save MP3s On Your Device with YouTubeToMp3 [Cydia]

YouTubeToMp3 is a new tweak available for free in Cydia that, as the name suggests, allows you to save MP3 audio files on your jailbroken iOS device through Youtube. It may happen sometimes, in fact, that you stumble upon a live performance of your favorite artist on YouTube and you can’t find the single audio files anywhere else; in the past, we reviewed Grappler for Mac, a utility for OS X that allows you to convert videos from the popular video service to audio files also compatible with iTunes.

YouTubeToMp3 only needs the URL of the video you’d like to save and a tap on “Convert”. The UI isn’t exactly great, but the tweak gets its job done by saving .mp3 files into /var/mobile/Media/Downloads. You can manage files from the utility itself, too.

YouTubeToMp3 is available under BigBoss repo and it’s compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch.
