I often run into one video or the other on YouTube that I want to watch again and again at my convenience. At such times, a YouTube video downloader comes in very handy. A YouTube video downloader is self explanatory. It lets you download a video from YouTube to your device for offline access.
On the Nokia 808 PureView, I have two functional YouTube video downloaders – YouTube Downloader and FastTube. Both of them are quite capable and there really is no need for me to have both installed. I have the two on my phone for comparison purposes only.
I am aware that Google has been fighting a battle to shut down YouTube video download services, but I am totally against this drive. As far as I am concerned, Google wants to take away my freedom.
So far, I haven’t run into a YouTube video downloader on Android or Windows Phone. I doubt that Google will let such an app go live in Play Store. I have no idea if such an app exists on BlackBerry or iOS. If I were to switch from Symbian today, I am guessing that I would sorley miss t5hese apps, as I am not sure of alternatives on other platforms.
Please, do share. If you own a smartphone, do you use a YouTube video downloader on it? If yes, please give names. Gracias!
