The most unique YouTube experience, anywhere. myTube is a YouTube app built to keep your video playing no matter what. By lightly fading the video into the background, you can continue to watch while you read comments, browse channels and videos, and everything else you can do in the app. If you can do something in the app, then you can do it while watching a video! myTube even can play the audio of videos in the background while you use another app ;) Note: - Google makes changes to YouTube all the time, please keep this in mind! I'll work as hard as I can to keep things going after a change is made. - The trial version limits you to watching 1 hour of video in every 3 hours, then you will have to wait 10 minutes to continue watching. This may change in the future. - If you find any problems with myTube or would like to suggest a feature, please let me know using the methods provided within the app. > Christopher Blackman <

Better than actual YouTube. Runs amazing on my Nokia 929 (icon). No adds (thank god), 1080p support, little to no buffering, free, and much more. I love this app and you will too so do yourself a favor and download it :)

Stunning amounts of bugs.

The only thing I want at this point is *serious* bug fixing, the app sometimes locks up completely. Autoplay rarely works, music mode over wifi or cellular almost never works either. Sometimes it will jump directly into videos and sometimes it won't at all. Sometimes the app freezes completely. Please fix this, it's so frustrating because I really want to like and recommend the app but I just can't with this many bugs bringing down virtually all it's wonderful features. Even the video suggestion in your clipboard doesn't always work. :(

Awesome potential but reliability lacking

I love MyTube! when it works, however, lately its become increasingly unreliable for me. I feel like there is a 50/50 chance when I select a video if it will actually play or not. Often it will sit with the grey loading dots and will eventually crash, never actually load the video, or start playing after what feels like at least a minute. This happens both on Wi-Fi with a fast connection and wireless. Reinstalling hasn't fixed the issue and I've resorted to using my browser more often that the app because it's gotten so bad. I've submitted feedback through the app. Please fix it and I'll restore my 5 star rating!

Sluggish with load of bugs and flaws

How many more compromises do we, WP users have to make? Is it conceivably believable that we can't have one decent YouTube app to enjoy? Is this acceptable or utterly pitiful? I believe it's the latter.

Simply Well done!

Works very well. Smooth and easy to navigate. Other apps don't even compare to this one.




Platform: PC

Great app

I prefer this to YouTube in the browser when playing my playlists.

An amazing app not only do I enjoy the UI but also the developer is awesome.




Super awesome

Lets me play music videos and playlists under lock screen. Shows saved 'YouTube mix' playlists in my account! 5/5




Platform: PC

Great app, still needs some work.

Media keys aren't 100% reliable. Wish there was a shuffle button for playlists.

The best way to view youtube.

This is absolutely amazing. This is how a uwp app is done. It is the best way to view youtube on any os system. It has the ability to download videos in any format; it can even download in audio form. The interface is slick, smooth, and extremely functional on both mobile and on the pc with a mouse. I love it. I love it so much I'm going to look up the developer and buy his other apps to support him. Just because he supports windows 10 mobile so exceptionally well.
