Just as we covered an update rolling out for MetroTube, SuperTube -- another YouTube app for Windows Phone -- also has an update hitting the shores. SuperTube, previously known as YouTube Pro before rebranding earlier this year, was one of the first YouTube Windows Phone apps to feature HD and high quality streaming.
Upon returning to the Marketplace, the developers made the paid version free for all to download due to the situation which required them to take down the app and slap on a new name. Today we're pleased to relay the announcement of version 2.5 being pushed through to consumers. This is the first update we've seen for SuperTube since May, which is a good sign of support from the developer.
What's new in version two-point-five? We've got the following listed in the received changelog:
- Two video players apply to fast and slow network connection (option configurable on the settings page)
- "Watch Later" supported
- Offline playlist supports, play videos by shuffle model
- Live Tile icons now available in three styles
- Using Oauth2.0 as login model
- Change quality (LQ, HQ, HD) while playing a video
Pretty much puts it on par with MetroTube, and it's good to see more apps support "Watch Later" functionality. The free version of SuperTube is being rebranded to Tube Pro and will sport a different logo. This is due to many users not being able to update their app after YouTube Pro was removed all those months ago. This free version will sport all functionality and features present in SuperTube, but will be advertisement supported.
You can download SuperTube from the Marketplace for $1.29 (£0.99).
