Press Release - Downie
Downie for iOS is a very powerful video downloader and player - it uses the same core as Downie for OS X - the popular video downloader for the Mac (http://downie.charliemonroe.net). Downie allows you to download online videos and watch them later on when you're on the go with no Internet connection, or your Internet connection is limited.
Unlike other video downloaders, Downie allows you to download videos from sites that do not support iOS devices by e.g. requiring Flash in order for you to view them.
Downie currently supports over 350 distinct sites, but works with many more using sophisticated extraction methods and heuristics. And this number is rapidly growing with each update - we update Downie as often as Apple's approval system allows us to, meaning all requests are added quickly.
