How To Download Facebook Videos To Your iOS Device For Free With Prenesi
A new jailbreak tweak for iOS can now let you download videos straight from Facebook without any third party intervention – something we all were in dire need of.
Cydia is now offering you a jailbreak tweak in its BigBoss repo which enables users to download videos seamlessly through the iOS app. The jailbreak tweak, named as Prenesi, attaches itself to the existing Facebook app and then adds a new option to download the video on Facebook when you are watching it on either your iPad or iPhone.
The integration of the jailbreak tweak is so smooth, you could actually catch yourself thinking the option to download had been there all along as a native app feature – but it wasn’t.
So apart from being able to view videos offline through the tweak, Prenesi is also free of cost, leaving no space for any second thought while you download it. However, Prenesi does add in advertisements to Facebook to support the developer, but that is forgivable considering the headache it saves us from. Still, if you have a problem with the ads, you have an option to disable the ads – for free. YES.
Prenesi comes with a separate preferences pane available in the Facebook app where you can enable or disable the tweak as well as remove the ads. Moreover, the progress of the download will also be displayed in the Status bar. Once the download is complete, you can watch the video from your Camera Roll in the Photos app. From the Photos app, you can view, send or delete the video as per your requirement.
How to get the tweak in your iPhone or iPad?
- Download the jailbreak tweak, Prenesi, from the BigBoss repository in Cydia.
- Open the Facebook app and search the desired video you want to download.
- Click on the ‘Share’ button.
- The menu shows you an additional ‘Download this video’ option.
- Download the video and enjoy.
So you can now download Facebook videos for free on your iOS devices without any third party app, and remove the ads for free. That’s why I don’t get why you’re still here when you should be hurrying to avail this golden generosity from the Cydia developers.
