Today there are many alternatives like SnapTube, LuLuBox, Y2mate, however in 2010 when was launched, TubeMate was an excellent choice. In an effort to maintain it popularity, the team of developers are continuously updating the application bringing new features and fixing any bugs.
Recently they released a new update, the version number v3.2.7 that brings major improvements and minor UI changes. This will make the app look better, have less bugs and less crashes and force stops.
