Last week, CocoaNuts announced that YourTube for iOS 6 was coming soon. YourTube allows YouTube power-users to add many great features to YouTube on iOS. The tweak has finally been released Tuesday with full iOS 6 support, and it works from Google’s YouTube application from the App Store.
Some of the features YourTube adds to the YouTube application include:
- YouTube video downloading for offline viewing
- Accelerated download speeds
- Ad-blockers for video ads, banner ads, and brandings
- Ignoring restrictions for videos
- Always enabling AirPlay
- Importing downloaded videos to the media library with Gremlin (now 20x faster)
- Import video or just audio to music library
- Reverse syncing for syncing downloaded media to iTunes
- Selecting playback quality
- Selecting download quality
- An interface built into the YouTube application
Check out the animated gif below to see the interface in action:
YourTube for iOS 6 adds the popular video-downloading feature, which will display a white progress circle showing your download progress. You will be able to select the video quality before you download:
Video quality is not only chosen for downloads, but also for streaming. Being able to choose the streaming quality ensures that you have full control over what you think is the optimal quality for your Internet connection, rather than letting the application decide for you:
After downloading a video, tap on the blue arrow beside it to bring up the iOS 6 share menu that allows you to import either the video, or the video’s audio only to your media library using the integrated Gremlin software. Anything you import can be reverse-synced to your iTunes library on your computer:
From the settings application, you can manage your ad-blocking, video restrictions, and max number of simultaneous connections:
Note that YourTube for iOS 6 comes with a download acceleration feature that promises faster video downloads than any other YouTube downloader for iOS. The interface is nicely painted right into the stock YouTube interface, making for a seamless experience for any YouTube power-user.
YourTube for iOS 6 does not yet support 1080p, however it is under development. YourTube for iOS 6 works great on any iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
If you own YourTube or YourTube HD already, YourTube for iOS 6 is a completely free upgrade for you. If you don't own it yet, YourTube for iOS 6 will cost you $3.99 for the next 3 days, and then go up to $4.99 when the sale is over. The tweak is now available in Cydia's BigBoss repository!
