This app by far is the most advanced YouTube downloading app I have used in Windows store. It has a lot of features like, downloading not only MP3’s but you can also choose the bitrate. To begin with it has a decent interface, but for most of the YouTube interface it uses the Web version through IE10. Another great feature I have used in this app is that you can share any YouTube page through the charms bar.
You also can choose different interface optimized for touch and desktop versions. There is Live Tiles options also. You can search through the interface and share via it. There is also DLNA [Play-To] option to though I couldn’t test this option. Once you have completed your MP3 download, you can edit music artist, title, album, and genre. Another great feature on this SkyDrive integration and sync. You can upload and download MP3’s seamlessly.
This app though does have its share of cons. The interface is buggy and the app often shows update your Flash Player error. When you open the app for videos full screen it restarts. Also you also get invalid URL exception error. Also there was no option to cancel a single download when there are multiple downloads. It asks often for IE10 to be set a default browser. There was also no option to search via the Charms bar.
