    I always wondered why MxTube isn't on the AppStore when clearly there's nothing wrong with it. Personally, if they released it for cash, I'd buy it for my 2G for sure.

    And it's not only MxTube, but other native apps such as Colloquy, an IRC client. Is it because the author didn't send it to Apple for approval? Thoughts?

    MxTube is not on the App Store because the YouTube app is there. Technically, you are not supposed to download the YouTube videos because they are copyrighted to the people who made/upload them.

    If you want Colloquy, get Rooms. Its based off of Colloquy and I highly recommend it, its actually really good. Has an awesome User Interface. Wish an IM client was like that.

    It's technically illigal to download the YouTube videos
