I know I’ve written a lot about apps lately. I guess I’ve played around with my phone and iPad a lot lately and been procrastinating other things that need to be done. I’m supposed to work on my painting, but I was waiting for the previous layer of oil paint to dry and was making these useful (I hope) posts about the applications I love.
I’ve been amazed by the ‘Divergent’ movie when I saw it couple of weeks ago and really wanted to post a short version of a trailer on my Instagram account (hey! are you following me there? Blog account – @1happyblog, personal – @natella111). I was looking for an app that would let me extract the video from YouTube and I came across MxTube. It is easy to use, very fast, but what really made me love this app is that it can play the videos from YouTube even if you switch to another app / lock the phone. YouTube app doesn’t let you do that and if you need to answer an important call or reply to a message, when you come back, the app restarts and you lose the video / point where you left off.
So, here’s how it looks.
You can toggle between Recommended and Subscriptions, just as you would on a mobile or web versions of YouTube, if you have an account there. You can also see Popular and other categories.
You can also select a specific region.
Next tab is your Account with all your Favorite videos and playlists.
You can start playing any video.
And switch to horizontal mode to see the video.
If you touch the icon, highlighted with an arrow, you will be asked in what quality you want to save your video and your video will start downloading in Cache window.
Search option is also available.
And here is the Cache window.
After the video has been downloaded, you can save it to Camera Roll.
And here is the More tab.
This is it! Let me know if you tried this app and what are your opinions in the Comments below.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Love you all,
