A very good YouTube video downloader
on October 13, 2013
This is the best video download for YouTube I've seen yet. And the TubeMate website CORRECTLY says there are lots of fake clones of this application (ALL the versions on Google Play for instance), and not only do most of the clones not work, they are in fact Trojan horses for various forms of maliware and adware. This application DOES have adds, but I for one do not find them intrusive as they only appear within the application at the top of the screen, and this both keeps the app free plus doesn't slow the app down. ALSO in over 2GB of downloads I've seen so far ZERO porn adds. Not sure why others have, perhaps they should look at their own web-browsing history as to the reaso as adds areally usually targeted based on user activity.
As for the pros with this app, 1-you get fast download speed that downloads in the background allowing multitasking (you can track the progress in the menu download history), 2-ability to do up to 2 downloads simultaneously, 3-ability to select different download quality's (the Max based on the source video quality), this allows one to save space by selecting lower quality video if you don't have a lot of space (it usually still looks great BTW), 4-both app-specific and general YouTube search options, 5-enhanced fast download for devices that can support it (as an option from preferences), 6-a multitude of options to customize your user experience (most of which are shown to you when you first use the app in a short and easy to understand tutoria), 7-decent video player options for the videos you've downloaded (with this or other applications), and finally 8-the ability to choose the location (internal memory or external SD card, and which specific file that you wish)) both for downloading and playback. That last one is a real time saver for me as my device only has 5GB memory, but I have a 32GB SD card, and some HD 1080P videos can be as large as 100MB or more.
As for the cons,
Not really any I've seen. Well other than newer videos from Vivo won't download, but that is a "feature" of Vivo jackasses not this application (consider it like copy-protection as found on DVDs and Blue Ray disks). Otherwise everything is as it should be, as others have said, easy to understand icons and functions, good for the novice to the experienced user..
