    Just out of curiosity, is anyone else still using MetroTube as their main youtube app? I know it got removed from the marketplace and all, which is why I won't be resetting my phone until Windows Phone 8 brings backup.

    I also have Youtube Pro, but only use it to download videos. Otherwise I use MetroTube cause I like the interface better. Also I like the fact that the comments are in the same page as the video so I can read the comments as I watch the videos.

    So is anyone still using MetroTube? And what's your reason?

    Lazytube guy here from my first install. Plenty good for the minor youtube needs I have on a phone.

    Yeah I had Youtube worm, then Lazytube and finally Metrotube. I personally find it good locking but on the verge of useless. I never stay sign on and the videos just take forever, it just doesn't play nice with bad connections like mine.

    No, I've never worked for AT&T. Have you ever been around SW Louisiana? I've never been close to NYC.

    I hate to say it but I think all the youtube apps on WP are duds compared to youtube on android, but I know google will never let another platform have it that good.

    I like looking at it every now and then. I don't use it often because YouTube apps aren't allowed to have watch later lists (which I use frequent on the website)... I just LOVE the UI. Wish it was back

    PrimeTube's playback is inferior to Metrotube's, and is not identical in looks. Whoever created PrimeTube tried to modify Metro and for the most part, it doesn't look as nice or work as nice as Metrotube. The overuse of pure red looks terrible on my PenTile screen. As for Youtube Pro / SuperTube - I believe they will always be a cut below PrimeTube / Metrotube in terms of UI. Developer simply does not get good design or ease of use, period.

    Does anybody know why MetroTube was pulled from the Marketplace?

    It had to do with the way they were accessing the HQ videos and their inability to continue doing so without support from Google/YouTube

    Metrotube was pulled because Lazyworm didn't wish to continue pushing a product that was in the grey area of the law.

    Really glad you're still using our app!

    Just a quick note, if you paid for the app there is no need to worry if you end up losing it or upgrading your phone as we're more than happy to give you access to re-install it :)!

    Although the situation is unfortunate and we had little choice but to pull the app, we will continue doing everything in our power to support our customers.
