    I get the impression that Lazyworm just doesn't want to tread in the grey area of the legalities. The developers behind SuperTube and EasyTube have absolutely no problem doing that - they are in fact extreme, as demonstrated by the ability to download the videos.

    I much prefer Metrotube as it stands since I don't have enough storage space to keep many offline videos (making it a non-feature) and because of the superior layout.

    I've been given some sneak peeks at an upcoming update to SuperTube, and it's an improvement. I'm going to try and give them some direction in terms of interface, though I fear I will end up advising them to rip Metrotube :/

    Oh that is absolutely the case, and I hate them (Lazyworm) for that. If they grew a pair they'd just keep patching it. Stuff like that only becomes a problem when you get served. I can see how they wouldn't want to build a following and then disappoint their fan base, but honestly, I don't think most people would hate them for that if at that point it's blatantly Google's fault for not adding more specificity in their Terms of Service or opening up the API.

    As for SuperTube, who cares. It's Lazyworm's loss for not keeping their app going.

    Which do you use and why? Which one do you prefer (especially if you have both/multiple)?
    By far, I prefer MetroTube. Aside from being able to pin ANYTHING from within the app, down to individual YouTube videos (I have some songs pinned to play for my baby son) it's so much better designed, and works better as well, in my opinion.

    However, rumor has it that MetroTube isn't going to be supported any more, so I've downloaded SuperTube in case MetroTube stops working. The other (dubious) advantage of SuperTube is that it allows users to upload videos from their phone.

    I'd say, go with MetroTube. It's just excellent.
