Facebook Video Download

You can now download Facebook videos directly on your iPhone, iPad or iPod using the jailbreak tweak “Prenesi” which is available on Cydia for free. Prenesi latches on to the Official Facebook App on your jailbroken iOS 8 devices and integrates with it perfectly.

Many users want the videos they liked online, to be available to them offline as well. For users who’d like to download Youtube videos directly on to their iPhone or iPad, there are a large number of apps and tweaks available on both Cydia as well as App Store. But there hasn’t been a substantial app that has really catered to the needs of Facebook users who’d like to Save the videos they viewed.

This is because not a lot of people perceive Facebook as that big a video sharing website as YouTube is. But the fact remains that native video uploads on Facebook’s original client have been on the rise and it is high time a new tool is introduced which can download Facebook video on iPhone & iPad easily.

Using “Prenesi”, free Cydia tweak for iOS 8, you can now dowload all the videos that you view on Facebook directly on your iPhone & iPad. What more? The downloaded videos get saved directly to the Camrea Roll of you iOS device. See steps below to know exactly how to use Prenesi cydia tweak to download Facebook video on iPhone & iPad.
