Sneak peek - MetroTube by Lazyworm Apps [Video]

It's close folks. MetroTube aka the former app that used to be know as LazyTube is in the final stages of approval in the Marketplace, which means in days or even hours, the app can be yours. MetroTube is a complete rethinking of a YouTube app where the UI has be redesigned all around the Metro UI framework. We like that. You like that.  So lets watch the video and get ready for some greatness.

From our earlier write up on the app's new features:

"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."

Yeah, it's pretty awesome indeed.

  • i will definitely purchase once available.
  • As some one who is a part of their Beta Testing, this app is amazing. If you havent picked up lazy tube in the Marketplace for 99 cents, do it. You get the full upgrade to MetroTube when its released.
  • That looks amazing. As a beta tester, could you suggest them an option to choose which panel to open as default? I mean, instead of going to MyTube and automatically scrolling to Featured (which I don't like, the animation), an option to to just go to MyTube and not animate further. Don't know if you understand.
  • are the video played in HTML5 or flash?
