  • [Giveaway] ProTube Comes to the iPad With ProTube HD

    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!

    Note: 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!

    Name: ProTube HD
    Price: $1.49
    Version: 1.0
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Jonas Gessner
    Editor's Rating: / 4.5/5

    Are you excited for ProTube HD? Share in the comments.

      It's really good app. I use my ipad 1 a whole lot when i get home. I'm watching vids and so this app would be used and not just installed to take up space. #1249089

      Well, that guy is complaining that he hates the mobile version. Also, the only "feature" here is video downloading. But there are tons of free apps in the app store that let you do this. And you don't even have to be jailbroken (for all you 4S and iPad 2 users.)

      No there are about 30 more features than just downloading that ProTube has that Mobile YouTube doesn't. You can read more about it in the Cydia description.

      I will submit the update for ProTube (v1.4) and ProTube HD (v1.1) today. The updates will include bugfixes, and as mentioned by Anthony, the main changes are less memory usage and better caching!

      This is how one reacts to a critique of his tweak.

      You call this criticism? lol You haven't even read the post, and if you have you must be kidding me. This is trolling, but at the lowest level, with no intelligence behind it. I like criticism - but it has to be constructive. After the first release of ProTube i got uncountable emails requesting and criticizing that the feature of adding saved videos to camera roll was missing. I updated the app right away and added that feature. Sooo many People wanted HD downloads. So I spent hours, looking for a way to do that, basically rewrote the download implementations from scratch, spent days debugging. But saying that the only feature is downloading, what kind of critique is that? Read Anthony's review - then your "critique". You will maybe see what I mean :P But why should I send my time with random superficial guys? Ill better submit the update of ProTube now.

      I couldn't finish the update for ProTube HD this evening, but i will finish and submit it tomorrow! Should be the last major update for a while!

      Mmm..do now I'm unintelligent, ignorant, I don't know how to read, and a troll. Have you seen the forums? Ive helped so many people solve there problems, and since I don't believe your tweak is the best tweak on cydia means I'm a troll? That's ridiculous.

      You're trying to say that it's nothing more than the mobile YouTube application and yet it has countless more features. You expect respect from that statement? I agree with Maxner, sorry.

      You should really have read up more about the application and its features, even if I didn't state all of them in the article, which you cannot achieve with any other YouTube application on iOS 5 without having numerous tweaks and applications installed. In fact, even with numerous tweaks and applications installed, you won't get all of the features that you get in ProTube. It's the best one-stop-shop YouTube application on Cydia to date and it's a steal for the price he is asking. Your criticism is trying to compare it to the Safari bookmark? Heh. It holds no water...

      EDIT: I have picked the winners and I have sent the Cydia numbers to Jonas. If you have won then you should be able to download ProTube HD sometime in the next 36-48 hours. Check to see if you've won!

      I have sent a complimentary copy to each winner this morning. I will now submit the ipad update and another iphone update. Download Manager will be less laggy while downloading and will update more frequently (i found a much better way of updating the progress and the labels). Localizations are coming next!
