    Apple puts the applications in directories with (for me) random names.
    How can I still find an application fast, without search through all the directories?

    I have installed FREEdi YouTube downloader from Cydia. I downloaded some videos and now I want to find the directory the app puts them in.

    In ifile settings, turn ON the Application Names option. Presto!

    Since... when.... is.... that.... option.... there? :O
    Didn't even know there was an option menu! Thnx.

    Now it seems that the youtube videos are not saved in the application directory.
    Anyone knows where FREEdi saved the videos?

    According to Cydia, Freedi saves to Documents.

    On my iPad, a Freedi download saved to the iFile Documents folder. Just press on the Document "hot link" in the left column of iFile in landscape or use this path: /var/mobile/Documents/[your download(s)

    Hope that helps.

    Let that be a lesson to everyone ---

    Q. Where is the option for....? A. In the options menu...
    Q. Where are the documents for app x stored? A. In the documents folder...
    Q. How do I find out this stuff? A. Read the description of the App in Cydia!

    Always check the obvious first people! You'd be surprised how much stuff is just there waiting for you :D
