    Obviously the top two YouTube apps, but the question is... What does Metrotube do better than MyTube, and what does MyTube do better than Metrotube? Which features are essential to a YouTube app for you?

    I believe MyTube can play the video in the background which is a huge advantage if you just want to hear the audio and open another app.

    also MetroTube can do that. They added this feature in the latest update :)

    So background playback is a big feature. Any others?

    MyTube's lockscreen rotation during video playback is independent from phone settings. :p so.., you can rotate to fullscreen even if you've got rotation locked.

    MyTube can decrypt new google algorithms (changes affecting video playback/comments/vevo channels) and all that happens in "cloud" so there is no need to release an update when google mess something with the code.

    MyTube saves history of playback to account, and MetroTube doesn't.

    MyTube supports more languages.

    + Personally I like MyTube's tile more than flipping MetroTube's tile.

    However I bought both apps :)

    Interesting points. If Metrotube bought these features, would people switch back or has the damage been done? Any other opinions? Things Metrotube does better?

    Matter of opinion but I like Mytube's UI much more. It's more natural way to browse youtube for me compared to Metrotube's UI.

    Am I missing something here? My latest version of MetroTube won't play videos in the background.

    You're right, it doesn't. It'll play under lock but that's all. Don't know where this guy got that from.

    Good point. Which UI is easier to navigate?

    Mytube UI is better . You can search for different videos while watching the video or listening to music. And for me its better because I can listen to podcasts on YouTube ( vergecast,pocketnow,android central ) while browsing and doing other stuffs

    is there any app, which can save videos and can play them from video hub, or can allow videos to be transferred to PC or any other location?

    Non US carrier. But is the app really carrier dependent?
