As we know that moving files to and from between computers and iOS devices has always been a pain, the problem comes when your favorite singer or band release their new albums on YouTube, but you don’t want to buy it. Listening to songs on YouTube or any other audio streaming service will use up a lot of your precious data pack. It is better to download the song once and for all and then be able to listen to it whenever you want to without using the internet.
Downloading and iOS don’t go together very well with the operating system not allowing users to download content from the web and don’t even get me started about how slow syncing your phone with iTunes is. First, you need to download the files to your computer and then start iTunes which take 20 minutes to sync the phone just to transfer a 5MB file. Here in this tutorial, we will teach you how to download songs and videos from YouTube and other websites to your Apple devices without having to use your computer or iTunes.
SnapTube is an online video downloader service which allows users to download videos from popular social media and video sharing websites like Facebook, SoundCloud, Instagram, YouTube and Daily Motion.
SnapTube is free to use and allows the user to download the video in different video qualities ranging from 360p to 4k depending upon the video.

For now, the app is available only on Android and is under development for iOS. You can follow up their Facebook page for more information about ongoing work on the iOS app. Until that time iOS users will have to use a slightly longer method which we have demonstrated in this article.
This method involves the use of the official SnapTube website which does not support Direct download of MP3 files. We will show you how to convert the downloaded video to audio format. This method does not require the jailbreak exploit and is easy to understand and perform.
Step 1: Open the app store and download iDownloader. Once it’s downloaded, launch iDownloader.
Step 2: In the bottom navigation drawer, press the browser button which is the first one from the left. Go to YouTube using iDownloader and find the video you want to download.
Step 3: Wait until all ads are over and then go to the URL field and copy the link of the video.
Step 4: Go to www.snappea.com and wait till the page has loaded.
Step 5: Click on the text field in the center of the page and enter the URL of the video that you copied in Step 3.
Step 6: Click on the Analyze button that is next to the text field. This will show you the title and description of the video you are going to download
Step 7: Press the download button
Step 8: A list will pop up. Select the quality you want to download the video in. The download will now start.
