    Which do you use and why? Which one do you prefer (especially if you have both/multiple)?

    Currently use Metrotube, slick interface and from my experience, seems to have fast buffering/decoding of the video. I also use easyTube because it supports downloading of videos/viewing offline.

    If Metrotube supported that, which they won't ever because I asked, then I would solely use metrotube

    Metrotube, though the download function of supertube is tempting.

    Is there any YouTube app that allows you to upload videos straight from your phone?

    Maybe there will be a YouTube app that'll let you upload in the future. right now I'm using metrotube, but it doesn't have a watch later playlist, which is is the only playlist that i use. SuperTube as an ugly UI.

    MetroTube. Don't really have need to download videos on my phone, so that's a feature I don't miss. And I believe they are working on letting you upload for a next release, which I can see more use for.

    I believe SuperTube allows for downloads. I rarely go on YouTube, but was wondering what everyone used.

    I already purchased for MetroTube and SuperTube.

    I just downloaded supertube to try it and it seems better at streaming in a weak signal area than metrotube.

    There wont be a next release of MetroTube. The developer announced the app will no longer be available in the marketplace as of Jan 1, 2012, and it will no longer be supported.

    Edit: duh, should refresh before posting

    I hope Microsoft manage to sort this out soon. They have the new youtube app on the xbox now, so hopefully they can put it right with Windows Phone. Google is really starting to **** me off now. Its clear they are just doing this to stop WP7. Obviously it is starting to become a threat to their ****ty android.

    I use SuperTube. Downloaded when I first seen it released, and haven't used another youtube app since.

    Does this effect all ytube clients? And is it really pulled in a way that prevents you from redownloading even after you have paid for it once?

    I know in iOS, even when the app is taken off the market, you can log in to your account, review previous purchases and download from there. Does the MS marketplace website allow this? (trying to decide whether or not to buy before I read the posts above)

    I've seen apps that I've had being pulled from the Marketplace and they even disappear from your download history.

    Don't think i've had any purchased ones so can't vouch for them remaining, I don't think they do though because I remember a couple of XBox live game titles being pulled after their licence had expired and I'm sure users who had purchased them could no longer download them.

    That sucks... A lot of users will be forced to pay for another app if they have to start fresh on their current or new device.

    The statement by the MetroTube devs says:

    "YouTubes current API does not have any documented methods for obtaining high quality video content. We have been using a workaround to obtain this content and it has recently come to our attention that this may not be sustainable in the long term, hence our decision to stop distributing the apps."

    Does anyone know if SuperTube does something different to stream HD/HQ videos, or if they also use a similar workaround? Could this move be a precursor to SuperTube's demise, as well?

    Not good if we get left with that lame browser skin masquerading as an app.

    Hmmm. Thanks for the info, gang. I guess now I gotta decide if I'll have my titan long enough to justify one dollar. Haha.
