Although most BlackBerry 10 users tend to use the web browser for checking out YouTube I'm still an app man and SuperTube is the one I turn to each day. Only a month or so since its last update yet another has shown up in BlackBerry World - confirming that the developer is keen to deliver the best experience possible. 

As I've said before - although the BlackBerry 10 browser does a fantastic job when it comes to YouTube, I still prefer an app and SuperTube gives us that true BB10 look and feel with its light or dark theme and simple menu.

There's a free edition of the app so why not give it a try? I suspect you'll be pleasantly surprised. 

New additions include: 

  • audio extraction from local videos feature added (go into "Local Videos" and long tap on a thumbnail).
  • 1000% faster loading local videos list! Remember that from local videos list it's possible to upload videos to YouTube by sharing them.
  • performances improvements when loading video thumbnails.
  • added author and title information in the shared video link.
  • added playlist total time info.
  • prevent the video from starting over from the beginning when changing playback resolution.
  • fixed subscription error for some channels.
  • fixed playing of some videos than gave "Error getting video info".
  • some minor bugs fixed

Thank you for being committed to your development of the app on BlackBerry! It's my go to, for sure and paid for! The only thing that bugs me is the way the comments work; they just don't flow properly and seem to jump out of sequence. Otherwise, a fantastic app!

Tapped and flicked from my BlackBerry Z30!

Since the update, the extended search option no longer appears... That was my favorite feature...

I have 70+ straight icons and this angled icon. Consistency.

Great app and nice update.

I agree. But still the best YouTube app. I wish you could set it so YouTube links auto open in This app.

THE REASON WHY I DIDN'T DOWNLOADED IT FROM THE BEGINNING, WAS THE UGLY ICON AND THE INTERFACE

BUT I HAVE TO SAY...

AWESOME, VERY FAST AND GOOD!

HOPE HE WILL CHANCE THE ICON THAT SUITS BLACKBERRY (FLAT?)

SORRY FOR THE BOLD LETTERS... MY BLACKBERRY IS BROKEN :P

I think that by deleting the YouTube link (it just point to the mobile YT site), you will get it open by default. Or you can long tap on the link and choose "Open in" or "Share"

Local audio extraction isn't working for me on Z30. Does not play or even appear for that matter.

WMV does not work on BlackBerry 10 period. You'll have to take that up with Microsoft.

I used my almighty Z30 to create this CrackBerry madness!

If you are referring to playback of BlackBerry World downloaded WMV movies, no video player EXCEPT the native player will work with them. Copy protection. Same issue exists even with native player over Miracast. Copy protection.

Also, do not try to extract audio from a BlackBerry World WMV downloaded movie. Copy protection prohibits that too. That is not Marco's fault. That is on Rovi and BlackBerry's end.

Correction: some WMV files NOT downloaded from BlackBerry World are hit or miss.

I'll give it shot.
Fast Tube has been my YouTube app of choice for a while. This one looks to have more features now.

The icon is just fine and has absolutely nothing to do with the user experience beyond the splash screen. I like that the icon isn't a direct ripoff of the YouTube icon like other apps typically do, and it distinguishes itself from the pack with creativity. Marco, leave the icon as is.

Please please someone offer to design an icon for developing. The app is great but the icon looks like one of those ripoffs you see in.bb world

Zee coolest flicking smartphone ever

Get both, check 'em out. Try free version first.

"Which is the best?" is not a really a valid question, it should be "Which is the best for YOU?" Go, find out!

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Great developer, helped me fix an issue where I was unable to see my uploaded videos, and now it's my go to app.

I would like this app if they just made a nice elegant icon and startup splash screen. The current one is FUGLY

I use fast and super tube, only paid for super though. the splash screen with the ocean is kind of dated.

I bought Stereotube a while ago, but seriously thinking of replacing it with this app. Can anyone who have them both compare these?
