nice looking interface but don't think quality of films is as good as emtube and to be fair, emtube is more intuitive. Not as flashy, but at the moment I prefer it (emtube that is). oh and for some reason this app couldn't find the vids saved by emtube.

Just tried it, like chrsfrwll said, the quality isn't really as good as emTube, and the interface isn't as flashy as the official java client from YouTube. Also don't like how the app forces you to use the phone in landscape.

So yeah, I'll definitely be sticking to emTube and YouTube for now, as this doesn't offer anything new.

Just tried it out, and it's like the N95 before proper FW-upgrade, nice and shiny but with a few glitches.

I kinda liked it that it forces the phone in landscape mode, don't know why, I just do... and I just LOVE the cycle-through menues!!! My experience is that this programme downlads streams faster than emTube, why is that? (no changed setting from my side)

One bug I encountered was when I tried to log in with username for youtube, the application just kept on crashing, anyone other with the same problem???

and the sound can be REALLY crappy at times (try LEGO --> white and nerdy!)

Withy some extra developing, I think this will kick emTube !

Others with more/similar problems/views?

This application is great for the non-hardcore YouTube fans. I categorise myself right there, which is why I've uninstalled emTube. I rarely visit YouTube and tbh emTube was gathering digital dust a little. I only load it up every now and then, which is why I've gone with Mobitubia as its eye candy in its presentation and layout, simple to use and the results are pretty decent.

But as said above, emTube might still just be the best option for the masses of YouTube addicts. Saving YouTube videos is not something I'm into, so whether the feature works or not is not an issue for me.
