We get mildly excited when popular apps receive large updates and today's the turn of Metrotube, which has just been bumped to version 4.5. It's a strong increment in the number of versions, so you can expect to see some notable changes as you fire up the newly revamped third-party YouTube app.

Here's the full list of changes, as seen on the store listing:

  • Fixed video playback problem
  • Added ability to change app theme manually from the settings
  • Improved design for channel images
  • Improved river page design for displaying video thumbnails
  • Added "delete all" button in search box
  • Updated region list
  • Main tile shows subscriptions when logged in
  • Added ability to logout from within the river
