ProTube HD is the best YouTube client for the iPad.
ProTube, my favorite YouTube client for iOS is not available on the iPad. In December we showed you ProTube
for iPhone and iPod touch and all of its features. ProTube HD is the same thing, only for iPad. Since its initial release, ProTube has seen many new updates as well as new features. All of those features are also available in the ProTube HD version which we are going to show you in this description. ProTube and ProTube HD were made by one of our own Modmyi readers, Jonas Gessner
ProTube has a myriad of features that you cannot get from the stock iOS YouTube application or from the YouTube Web site that you can bookmark on your home screen. There are also several other YouTube clients in Cydia that you can download, but none of them quite scale up to the intuitive interface and features of ProTube. So you must be asking; why is ProTube the best YouTube client and why should we buy it instead of a different YouTube client? The answer is, it's beautiful, fully functional, and comes with excellent developer support. Jonas will work hard to implement requests by his buyers.
With ProTube, you can download videos (or just the audio from the video) in HD (high detail) or SD (standard detail), it has an ad-blocker for faster loading, you can like/dislike videos, you can leave comments, you can view recommended videos the way that YouTube wants you to see them, have control over your YouTube account, faster loading than the iOS application, HQ (high quality) and SQ (standard quality) options, share videos or add them to playlists, landscape orientation support, and so much more! In case you were wondering, yes, ProTube does support full screen video. The screenshot above is not in full screen mode. Here is a screenshot of the video download manager:
Any video that you download can be added to your camera roll, so this means you can use MMS or email to send it to people right from your iPad through iMessage or Mail. You delete, rename, and manage these videos that you download however you want to. ProTube HD also supports multiple simultaneous downloads so that you don't have to wait for one to finish to start another download. Another great feature is that you watch videos while they are being downloaded. If that's not enough to tickle your fancy, then try this: you can watch videos that are blocked on mobile devices through the video streaming ability on both ProTube HD and ProTube for the iPhone or iPod touch.
ProTube HD is on Cydia right now and will set you back just $1.49 for the whole package. It's not a bad deal at all. I have personally hidden the stock iOS YouTube application with Springtomize 2 in favor of ProTube because of the features. I am sure that any YouTube addict will appreciate this application and because of that, we are going to give away five copies of ProTube to the luck readers of Modmyi.
Want to win? Post a comment below that explains to us how you would use ProTube HD and why you think you should win it. You will need to post your Cydia account number so that we can route the application to your Cydia account. We will pick the winners in a couple of days. Good luck!
Jonas is currently working on an update for both applications (iPad version and iPhone/iPod touch version), which will be more lightweight in terms of memory usage because of better caching and it will also fix a few bugs that were left. He is constantly testing the app and will continue bringing awesome updates!
