Editors' review

PlayTube looks at first glance like another YouTube client, but it offers a handful of added features that others don't, most notably cached-offline playback. This feature, perfect for long plane rides or entertaining young children, is implemented well and combined with other high value YouTube features makes for a solid app experience.

In PlayTube you can browse top videos, search by videos, channels or playlists, or log in to your YouTube account and access your own subscriptions, history, favorites, and playlists. You can also upload directly from the app as you would from the standard YouTube app. The added feature here is that you can tap the save button for any video you are watching and store it in your local queue for playback when offline. All of this is very fast and the interface is intuitive and responsive, even with the ad support that has been integrated throughout.

If you want an app that will replicate the tools found in most of the more powerful YouTube apps but with additional features like local playback with a stored cache, consider PlayTube. It's fast, free, and very effective at playing back your content however you want to interact with it, making this a good addition to your iPhone's app library.
