YouTube is a site/app which I visit every single day. And whether it is to browse through my subscriptions or just have a random gander, I always find enjoyment. When I bought my Windows Phone I looked forward to being able to watch videos on the go, however, this wasn’t the case.
After installing the Official YouTube application I soon realised that this wasn’t the experience I was looking for. Instead of taking you to a YouTube app, you went to the mobile version of the site — which is frankly poor.
I decided it was time to find something more suited for my needs. That’s when I came across MetroTube, a much better way to watch the videos I love. Read on to find out more!
YouTube is a fantastic resource for discovering all sorts of videos. From funny cats clips and product reviews to live broadcasts and tutorials, practically anything you could ever want to watch is available free of charge at the click of a mouse.
While Android and iOS devices have dedicated apps available, PC users are generally limited to browsing for content in a web browser. If you’d like to avoid the extra distractions – and you’re using Windows 8 – you can turn to Your Tube 8 to focus your YouTube experience.
Depending on your mood and the type of music you want to listen to, you might turn to one of many sources for audio entertainment. You’ve probably got a decent music collection stored on your hard drive, and you could use iTunes to listen to this.
But what about new music, or tracks that you don’t already own? There are a number of online music services available – such as Spotify, Rdio and Last.fm – so you may find that you’re constantly switching between apps and web sites. This could all come to an end when you start using Tomahawk.
When you’re looking for entertainment, YouTube is a great place to start. Here you’ll find everything from music videos and documentaries to films and TV programmes but you are limited to watching when you have an internet connection.
There are various tools you can use to download YouTube videos so you can watch them offline or transfer them to other devices, but TubeBox is a recent discovery of mine that I wanted to share with you.
