YouTube to your heart's content with Awesome Tube, today's AdDuplex HERO App

Awesome Tube is an easy-to-use and simply laid-out YouTube client that is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile. It isn't fully-featured, but it comes mighty close and scores nicely as today's AdDuplex HERO App.

Being a HERO App, Awesome Tube becomes a part of a promotional campaign for Windows Phone and Windows developers on the AdDuplex Network. The campaign partners AdDuplex with AppDeals, TechRewards{.nofollow} and Windows Central to deliver a host of benefits to the top apps and games each month. Our role in the HERO App campaign is to offer a little exposure to these titles by sharing them with you, our readers.

The layout of Awesome Tube is relatively simple, with a series of main pages that highlight trending and recommended videos and tiled video categories to let you explore YouTube's catalog of videos. There is a drop-down menu in the upper left corner of the screen to give you access to Awesome Tube's settings, let you log into your YouTube account and search videos by keyword.

Settings include regional preferences, restricting uploads and downloads to Wi-Fi only, and your choice of color theme.

When you log into your YouTube account, a subscriptions page is added to the main page grouping and a host of options are added to the drop down menu. These new options include your upload option, an option to pull up your channels, view your playlists, view your history, see a list of any 'watch later' videos and view any saved videos.

The layout does have a Windows Phone 8.1 feel, but not in a bad way. Video listings include a description of the video, comments and any related videos that might spark your interest. You can comment on videos through Awesome Tube, and leave ratings as well.

Should you need to jump to another page within Awesome Tube while you are viewing your video, playback will be reduced to a thumbnail view in the bottom right corner of the screen. Tapping the thumbnail will return you to full-screen viewing.

Awesome Tube is free to download and use, though it is supported with ads (you can remove them via a $0.99 in-app purchase). There are some notable YouTube clients available for Windows 10 Mobile, but it doesn't take long with Awesome Tube to know that the app is a great addition to that list.

  • No offence to the developer, very fine work here, but the interface looks very similar to that of Perfect Tube Zachary Bowling - ZAD Apps
  • Maybe he wanted to be perfect and awesome.
  • Exactly my thought. The interface is rather identical besides some tweaks here and there (ie subscribtion chat heads). Also, as a heads up to everybody reading this, removing the ads is free as of writing this. (location is set as UK on my phone, you have to go through the buy thing but it taxes you 0.00 pounds)
  • On Perfect Tube or Awesome Tube is the ad removal free? Zachary Bowling - ZAD Apps
  • I thought it looked familiar...
  • guys who all used this app? how's it compared to mytube? Ilove mytube, but experience some problems here and there ~DheeraJ~

  • Not sure but none seem to support live streams.
  • I liked it.. For me its = to mytube.. But mytube isnt a universal app yet and the current app has a lot of issues mainly while palying vids and more when on background.. This app is simple, lite, quite fast app with w10 UI.. Btw the app crashes a lot while trying to open..
  • As I remember MyTube is UWP already...
  • he was trying to say that they are making a new Windows 10 version of the app...
  • Nope it isnt.. Mytube will be a true UWA with v3 that is coming soon
  • It is uwp
  • No.. It has a tag 'built for win 10' but it isnt pure UWA.. V3 update will make it a true UWA
  • it supports Live stream
  • I like Tubecast ;) Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • It's never a good choice to name your app "awesome" or "best" etc etc... Most of the users get a bad feeling from it. It's simple reverse psychology :D Posted with the Windows Central app for Windows 10 on my Lumia 535
  • Especially seeing how part of the description is "BEST youtube application client ever in the windows store!"
  • I'm going to try it later
  • Looks good
  • Metro tube is the best
  • That's what I use! Hoping for a UWA soon!
  • OMG!!! Live support <3 have to download now
