LazyTube, the popular free (and paid) solution to the lack of YouTube support on the Windows Phone platform, is almost set to be launched as Metrotube sometime this month. So what's new in the upcoming version? We have a revamped UI and pinnable tile support. Users will be able to pin videos and categories (playlists, favourites, subscriptions, etc.) to the home screen for easy access. The most interesting item to pin is an individual author where the thumbnail of the latest video added will be pushed through.
Why the rebrand? It's to do with the facelift and aesthetic changes that have been implemented for version 3.0. Users who already own LazyTube will not have to repurchase the app, and they will receive Metrotube as a free update. As mentioned above, Metrotube is set for a November release.
Check out the video below for a small demonstration of pinning the above to the home screen and visit the Metrotube website for more information.
