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
