In News, Tech by Cassie Crone0 Comments

Nowadays we use our smartphones for pretty much everything, from regularly checking in on our social media accounts to listening to our favorite music on the go. A lot of us also tend to watch quite a few videos on our devices; especially on YouTube, and especially late at night before going to sleep. More importantly, though, having something to watch while traveling is always great because, let’s face it, a long flight can quickly turn into a grueling experience when you’re bored out of your mind the whole way. Luckily, there are now ways of passing the time in these situations thanks to advancements in software that allow us to watch videos on the go even when we don’t have an internet connection.

AnyTrans is one such piece of software and is has just been expanded to include a new feature that can be used to download videos from YouTube and other websites directly on an iPhone or iPad. The software actually has a number of useful features and you check them out for free by downloading the trial version. As for the new feature, it is simply called “video download” and is included for free with the trial along with all the others. Video download is exactly what it says on the tin – simply copy/paste a link and start downloading, simple as that. Aside from YouTube, the software also supports videos from Vine, Vimeo, Instagram, DailyMotion, and a number of other popular websites.


If you’re interested in testing AnyTrans for yourself it’s worth noting that the software must first be downloaded and installed on a PC or Mac. Once that’s done, the user can connect any compatible iOS device and download any number of videos directly and in just a matter of seconds. It’s worth mentioning that you can also simply download said videos on your computer and then transfer them to your mobile device later, which might be more convenient if your machine tends to download faster than your phone. Not a whole lot more to say really, it’s easy, it’s fast, and it’s free, so go check it out it if you think you’ll soon find yourself in a situation where watching videos on the go might come in handy.
