Tubex for YouTube can be downloaded on to your iPhone or iPad completely free of charge from the Photo & Video section of the App Store.

This app packs a bunch of functions and features that will make it very convenient and fun to watch videos on your iDevice.

Functions & Features

Users have the option of signing in to their YouTube account, which will display all their uploaded videos, activity, and playlists. However, if you want to go incognito, you can choose to remain anonymous, but still have the ability to create playlists.

This app allows you to do all the things you'd do on YouTube such as changing the video quality to 240p, 360p, 720p, and 1080p. You can also enable or disable closed captioning. My favorite feature, however, is the ability to play the video in the background!
