  • ProTube for YouTube Gets Slashed 33% in the App Store for Black Friday Weekend


    ProTube for YouTube, one of the better alternatives to the free YouTube application offered by Google in the App Store, is on sale over the Black Friday weekend for 33% off. Normally priced at $2.99, you can grab the application for $1.99 until Sunday.

    ProTube for YouTube offers benefits over the features that are built into the core functionality of the stock YouTube application offered for free in the App Store by Google. Those include:

    • Ad-blocking
    • Watching videos normally blocked on mobile devices
    • Choosing any video quality, including 1080p, on mobile devices
    • 256kbps audio playback quality
    • Managing uploads, playlists, and subscriptions
    • Adjusting video playback speed
    • Viewing only the top comments
    • Mirroring YouTube to Apple TV or Chromecast
    • Allowing background playing of content while using other apps on your device
    • Support for all of iOS 9's new features, like split-screen multitasking, 3D Touch, and more




    With the application's array of useful YouTube-oriented features, you'll get a much nicer YouTube experience than you would with Google's free YouTube application. Those interested in the ability to download YouTube videos should check out the ProTube extension from Cydia for jailbroken devices, which is a separate package.

    To download ProTube for YouTube while it's on sale, you can head over to this App Store link.

      The Cydia app was recently updated to work properly with iOS 9. It's definitely my favorite YouTube app.

      I give it five stars and two thumbs up. LOL



      P.S. "ProTube" is for the iPhone and iPod. "ProTube HD" is for the iPad. One purchase gets you both.

      My understanding is they are the same app created by the same person.

      My understanding is they are both created by Jonas Gessner, and are very similar.

      Everyone says it's great. But i honestly don't see the appeal. I purchased it a few months back because everyone says it's wonderful and it's been a real letdown. Can someone explain? Maybe i'm missing something.

      I'm going to call Apple and ask for refund. When someone send me a YouTube link and I click on it, Safari opens and I get no option to open in ProTube. Instead I get an option to download YouTube from AppStore. Looks like I bought coffee and spilled it before I took the first sip.

      I am going to do the same thing too, too many bugs. Example video screen disappear if u move it around and can't access but the sound is still playing. I prefer just the stock YouTube with YouTube ++ installed.

      Got the refund. Didn't even had to call. Did a "Report a problem" via iTunes.

      It sucks that Protube doesn't work when you have tsProtector installed. Not confirmed if xCon has the same effect on Protube.
