Download a Facebook Video on iPhone and iPad without jailbreak: Facebook has really changed the world because of how easily it lets people share the best moments of their life with their friends and family, but sharing these moments come at a cost – specifically your data costs. The world isn’t perfect and so we have to pay to watch our family and friends enjoying their precious life. Unless we have free WiFi – but we don’t have that all the time. So today we are going to guide you on how to download your favorite facebook videos on that free WiFi network that you love.
We already taught you how to download these videos from Facebook, but frankly we understood that not everyone has broken out of the Apple prison – nor does everyone wants to do that. Although it’s not that hard or complicated to jailbreak your iDevice these days what with all the guides and tools that let you jailbreak in a few clicks, a lot of people seem to be too scared to do it. Or they just don’t want to be a bother for the big Apple.
So what we are going to guide you through today will not require you to endure the jailbreaking process – you still want to witness your friends and family’s best moments in full HD but you still want to save your money by downloading those videos on WiFi when you can. It’s not that hard either, quite simple and straightforward unlike the jailbreak method where we had to go through a few hoops.
It’s a bit less flexible though, and that’s the point. Jailbreaking lets you do things as you want them. But since we don’t have jailbreak we have to bend with Apple’s way of doing it. But that’s how the world works and that’s how the mighty Apple wants it to be. Customers have to bend over even though they are the one who paid the 700$ to buy into this prison of Apple.

So let’s get you what you need to accomplish this feat of accomplishment that Apple has artificially made so difficult!
- Goto your home screen and find the App Store, tap on it and search for an App called “Video Downloader for Facebook”.
- It should be on the top of the search results, once you find it tap on it and install it. It will take a while to download so you can make a BLT. Unless you have a fast internet connection – which you should if you are currently using that free WiFi we talked about earlier.
- Once Downloaded and Installed go back to your home screen and you should see a blue icon waiting for you to tap it.
- Open the app and behold the beauty that it is.
Now you might be a bit confused about how to use this app, so we are going to help you with that as well. You will need to login with your Facebook account of course, that’s pretty obvious. Once you have logged in you can browse the public videos that have gone viral – it’s almost like the popular section on YouTube.
You can also check out the videos your friends and family have been sharing by tapping “Friends”. Here you will have a feed of all the videos your friends and family have shared over the days and you can watch and download any or all of the videos.
The Newsfeed is similar as in it lets you see the videos that are from your Newsfeed, quite obvious with that name really. Nothing complicated to it. It’s just a bunch of different feeds you can use to watch and download the videos you want and love.
The Downloads section is where you will find all the videos that you have downloaded so you can watch them later whenever you want. You will also see the progress for ongoing downloads here, so you can see how much time is left before you can leave the free WiFi bubble that you stay so calmly in. Before your data provider starts billing you outrageous amounts of money per MB.
And that’s it. That’s how you can download your favorite videos from Facebook without jailbreaking – you have to use an app from the App Store. Apple’s get’s its way at the end. Anyway, the app is pretty cool. It lets you download all the videos you want to watch and plus does more than you expected from it. You can even create playlists! It’s almost like a mini-YouTube at this point.
