MetroTube app finally returns to the Windows Phone Marketplace for download

The return of MetroTube!

We told you a few days ago that YouTube app MetroTube was due to return to the Marketplace for Windows Phone after a six month hiatus and sure enough, version 3.1 just went live.

The app itself is as smooth and buttery as you may have remembered. If you don't remember you’ll really enjoy the superb, fluid UI design which is obviously heavily inspired by Metro design language. Features include streaming of video content, pinning videos to your Start screen, like/dislike, comments, favorites and playlist support and sharing.

You may not get the ability to rip videos for downloading or play in true HD but the app itself is a joy to use and now that it’s free, it’s hard to not give it serious consideration.

Pick up MetroTube here in the Windows Phone Marketplace for free. Let us know in comments your thoughts. Thanks, Rahat M., for the tip

  • Great to see this app is back on the marketplace. Never did find a good alternative
  • +1 I remember buying both back in the day and lazy tube hands down was better than super tube..
  • Oh well, back to stock rom! This is the only reason I wanted to sideload apps anyway, just so I could get this app lol.
  • Do they let you download the videos? Do they also cirvumvent Google's ToS bullshit and allow you to stream videos that are normally restricted from being viewed on Mobile?
     
    Because the looks of the app have never been able to make up for the lack of functionality compared to SuperTube.
  • In my opinion, Youtube pro is better.
  • YouTube pro sucks. They still have not fixed mail inbox and download video have too.use a software to get the file.from computer
  • That's because YouTube pro no longer exists (is no longer supported) due to the name issue; supertube is essentially the updated YouTube pro. I love metrotube and am glad it's back (I never uninstalled it), but the ability to save videos on supertube is definitely great.
  • YouTube Pro or SuperTube, same difference....
  • Primetube is also a good, free app and seems to be every bit as good.
  • 3.1 what's the difference in 3.0 i currently have installed? Said it before best Metro UI YouTube app for WP;
  • Metrotube has a more functional live tile for subscription feeds
  • PRIMETUBE AND METRO TUBE ARE VERY SIMILAR... #DOWNLOADED BOTH... @WPCENTRAL @NOKIA @WP8
  • If you guys like pics... Go download get me rated..
  • I'm keeping my old one, downloading and storing vids is a breeze.
  • Heck yeah!
  • Best YouTube app ever
  • While Metrotube is great visually, I think SuperTube has more of the functionality that I want.
  • Been using it before it was taken off market last year. Using ver 3.0 now will update 3.1
  • Woohoo, great! Supertube has more functionality, but metrotube has more metro eyecandy:)
  • Come in handy since my dumb lumia 710 YouTube app won't work even in the browser
  • I like prime tube because it has more features.
  • Metrotube hands down is the better app. YouTube Pro and and Primetube both tried hard but can't match the quality of this app at all. Thanks for making a comeback!
  • Couldn't find it in the Marketplace, but the QR code worked O.o Just like Skype when it was Beta.
  • COMPARISON BETWEEN METROTUBE AND SUPERTUBE!!

  • While Metrotube is great visually, I think SuperTube has more of the functionality that I want.
    wireless speakers
     
  • Yes I think this speaker is great because today wireless speakers are becoming more and more popular for their convenience, portability and compatibility to almost latest generations of smart phones playfi
