    MyTube is better, IMHO. It receives more frequent updates, has continue in background as audio, and is more enjoyable to use. However, as it costs money people will tell you MetroTube is better.

    So you are the developer of Metrotube?
    lol I wish. I just notice that there is very divided opinion on MyTube v Metrotube and was interested in why. Seems like Metrotube is nicer UI and free, but MyTube has the features

    Non US carrier. But is the app really carrier dependent?
    some carriers block certain links I think

    Considering the price of Metrotube vs Mytube (free) and considering the overall look, feel, and functionality is sufficient for most people in Metrotube, I would have to go with Metrotube. It is a beautiful looking app that runs quickly, but sometimes there are bugs.

    MyTube allows me to download videos that Metrotube and other youtube clients can't.

    I was a long MetroTube user, but I switched to MyTube, because of the frequent updates, features, and a great developer. I bought both. Anyways, both are better than the official YouTube apps on ios and android, they SUCK!

    Well, somehow MetroTube is working well today. No reinstall or any action taken. Just work by itself. Not sure why. Something is just weird about playing YouTube on my carrier via Windows Phone.

    The playback experience is superior with myTube. The aforementioned background / audio playback is great for podcast-like channels, it deals with playlists better, you can have the video playing while navigating anywhere through the app, the scrubbing implementation is clever, the interface is far smoother and it has proper transitions when changing orientation.

    Ended up buying myTube for a few reasons. Easier UI, the way it was laid out was easier for me to follow, and helping out with the Beta didn't hurt at all. While I'm sure that the guys that did Metrotube care, I feel that the guy for myTube gave that little bit more. While my personally choices led me to myTube... you really can't go wrong with either. I found both to be superior to the "official" youtube app that Microsoft had out for a short time.

    I bought mytube days ago. Now, I watch videos using my phone more than my PC and iPad. Everything I wanted is in it. Metrotube also nice but lack some features only good in mytube.

    I use mytube nowadays.

    Metrotube is a good app and both apps have a lot of functions in common, it just feels that mytube usually does it better.

    Mytube and Metrotube allow you to download/preload the files to your phone which is a great feature for people that have a limited data plan (like me), so we can preload the videos while connected to wifi and then watch them on the go (train, walk, car, plane, skydiving etc.). While mytube allows queueing downloads (it will download two videos at the same time, but you can queue more and, afaik it even allows downloading in the background) metrotube can only download one video at a time and is not able to queue at all. However, mytube requires external power for videos larger than 100Mb whereas metrotube doesn't. Also, Metrotube allows you to select the quality you want to download, which is nice but mytube seems to download 720p anyways so the covenience of being able to queue downloads is more important to me.

    I also like the fact that mytube allows you to listen to the audio track of a video in the background. As far as I know, Metrotube does not have that option

    If you disable the new "river view" in metrotube, you can actually use the app in landscape but with the new UI that point is moot as both apps only allow navigation in portrait mode and you have to keep on turning your phone, which is a annoying.

    PS: i bought both apps, though.

    Mytube limits you to 1 hours of video in every 3 hours, then it forces a 10 minute break on you.
    Metrotube will not alow you to watch/stream HD quality

    according to the app description only if you buy it. Since I bought it I can not verify if this is true.

    according to MetroTube's store description trial is unrestricted and unlimited. You can buy it just to support the devs (+get rid of buy button in menu) :)

    I won't argue with you, you're probably right - it might be outdated. :-) German translation has been added to MetroTube long time ago, so the store description probably remains unchanged since then. :p
