Supertube is a popular Windows Phone app that is slated for an update. The YouTube client is moving to version 1.8 will add the ability to sync videos downloaded to your PC with your Windows Phone.
Supertube allows you to stream and download Youtube videos in HQ and HD over 3G and WiFi. The app lays everything out nicely taking full advantage of the Windows Phone Metro design. Pages include a Category page to filter video suggestions, Search page, Hot Videos page (from your categories), Subscriptions and Favorites pages (from your YouTube account) and a Download Page detailing all your downloads.
To sync videos downloaded to your PC, you will need to install a client program to your computer that is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7. You can find the client program here along with installation/set-up documentation.
Additional features already in place with the current version of Supertube include:
- YouTube Account support to view, edit subscriptions and favorites.
- Nearby Video feature that will map out videos uploaded near your location.
- Custom background. Hub History can be hidden or displayed.
- Share videos through Facebook, Twitter, SMS and Email.
- Multi-language support.
In giving the updated version of Supertube a short test drive, we found it to be a quality Windows Phone app for viewing and accessing YouTube. We'd easily rate it a 7.5 as a very good app for your Windows Phone.
The update has been submitted to the Marketplace for certification and should be distributed any day now. In the meantime, if you haven't given Supertube a try, the YouTube app comes in two versions.
Supertube Lite is a free, ad-supported version and lacks the ability to download videos or sync with your PC.
Supertube is a paid, ad-free version that will run you $1.29 and has a free trial version. You can find the paid version of Supertube here and Supertube Lite here (both links opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
