Tube Downloader – A different way to get videos and music to your device

Have you ever been looking for a song or video and you just can’t seem to find it anywhere else but YouTube, Daily Motion, or Google video? I’ve encountered that problem several times when the song on YouTube is a remix of a song I like. With Tube Downloader, not only are you able to download videos from YouTube, Daily Motion, and Google video but you’re also able to choose if you’d like to only download the music.

Tube Downloader Free by Koyote Soft Mobile allows you to search for the video straight from the app. It then takes you to the results page where you can find the video you’re looking for. When a video is selected a menu comes up with options in which you can preview the video before downloading, an information tab, download as video option, download as Mp3 (medium quality) option, and also a download as AAC (Highest Quality) option.

Pros

  • You can strip a song from the video directly on your phone.
  • Different formats – Mp3, AAC

Cons

  • It takes a really long time to fetch videos or even preview them.
  • Many people on the market have complained that the app has stopped working or gives constant errors. I’ve experienced a few of these errors but overall you can see past these errors but a fix would be much loved by everyone.

Final Verdict

This app is a definite must have on any phone. There is a free version and a paid version. The free version is a pretty awesome. The paid version is €1.99 and the developer well deserves it for such a great app.

    Downloading the audio of a video has never ever worked for me, but the app itself is brilliant. Good review.

    Used this on Tuesday to download a song that couldn’t be found anywhere else. Works perfectly, though downloads are a little slow over a cell network… understandable.

    Apparently Droid does copyright infringement!

    While I am certain this is a great application (at least when it works), there is no getting around that this is enabling mass copyright infringement and should not be endorsed.

    This application circumvents copyright protection measures taken by companies such as Google, For example, Google has gone to great lengths to allow content owners to control the use of their content on YouTube. Google provides content owners that ability to remove or monetize content through the use of content fingerprinting. Google’s efforts has probably allowed YouTube to remain the amazing source of content it has become.

    Note, as applications such as this one are not likely to receive the same sort of legal treatment as a DVR, it is not likely to be available for long…

  • http://Website Uknow

    it works great on my nexus one. The video takes a little bit longer to load because it does it in high quality. It would take me the same time to load a video on youtube in hq.
    Great app, love it!

    Tube Downloader is totally gone. Not only can one no longer find the app, but the existing one that I have installed no longer works. I imagine that pressure was applied on either the developer or Google due to copyright considerations to have the app eliminated. Such a shame.
