I was one of the fortunate ones who managed to download MiTube before it was yanked. Although I haven't had too many reasons to use it yet, when I have it was nice to know it was there. You simply search for the video you want to download, decide whether you want a hi- or low-res file and the retrieval process begins.
The fact that this one is already unavailable reminds me of a habit of mine that I recommend for all iPad owners: Look at what's new in the App Store each and every day. MiTube caught my attention so I downloaded it the day it came out, and I'm glad I did. Even though there are now 20,000+ iPad apps in the Store, it's very easy to quickly look at what was added today: In the App Store app just go to the Featured area and select the Release Date tab. All of the day's additions appear there in alphabetical order. Keep paging through till you reach one with yesterday's date and you'll know when to stop. I do this every night and it takes less than 5 minutes.
