InsTube App Review
We love to have each of our favorite youtube videos to be downloaded on our smartphone from Youtuber. Also, it is better to have our own videos getting backed up to our devices for later reference and viewing. For saving videos, it is necessary to have a free youtube video downloader and converter on your smartphone to make tasks easier and reliable. It is not a big deal to get all the videos if you get a good video downloader app on your smartphone, but finding the best is one. Here we review one of the best free youtube and music downloader for Android smartphones. I would say ‘one of the best’ because I have never used such a good looking downloader app before.
InsTube is a free Music and Video downloading client application available for Android smartphones. It has many extra features and secure options to make the Video downloading user-friendly.
Basically, Instube works same as that of every Youtube video downloaders live. But in terms of features, the app stands a bit higher than any of the competitors, and you will feel it from the installation screen itself.
Concerning the App UI, it is just simple and materialistic as well. The app has an Orange-Magenta theme on top along with the white background. The Home page itself has a browser looking setup, where the “bookmarked” icons which point to several video platforms including Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, Instagram, AOL, Tumblr, Vuclip, Liveleak, Vevo, Dailymotion, etc. The address/URL bar on top helps you to search for any keyword on every available social media for downloading, or to put any link in your clipboard.
On the top section icons from Home page view, the often takes to Hamburger slider sidebar where all the extra features and options go, and the right “Download” button shows every downloaded media.
As of every “free” Android app, the InsTube is also embedded with several kinds of AdMob ads. The ads are just shown on most of the windows, and the popup one comes while opening the app. Also, the full-screen video ads also rise during inactivity it seems. Sometimes, the number of Ads may appear a little annoying. Luckily, none of them is misinforming or misdirecting, so easier to distinguish between Ads and app elements.
InsTube is much faster on in-app controls, and easier to generate download links. You can download any of the videos directly right from the Youtube app by tapping “Share” button and choosing InsTube. If you have any of the video/media links copied, it will automatically convert the link to the downloadable form, as you can download youtube videos free. So it is one of the best Youtube and music downloader out there.
There also some drawbacks in app download section, as far as we have tested several times. When you go for any of the videos from the apps, the flash button for generating download link will come popping. Tapping it, you would be getting download links for the video in every resolution. Here are the available video resolutions available.
- 144P (3GP)
- 240P (MP4)
- 360P (MP4)
- 480P (MP4)
- 640P (MP4)
- 720P (MP4) HD
- 1080P (MP4) HD
- 1280P (MP4) HD
The higher resolution option of 1280P is same as that of 720P with some minor improvements. Additionally, you can choose multiple formats r even the every format to download at a time. Downloaded contents are much clearer than ones from any other video downloaders, even almost lossless Audio clarity too. As we have mentioned, the InsTube app is just not only for the youtube stuff but also can be used in downloading the video or audio contents from any of the popular sites in the list. The supported platform list given in the app is just limited to few dozens, but also will add more sites upon the requests. Currently supported websites are:
Youtube, Facebook, SoundCloud, Twitter, Vimeo, Instagram, AOL, Tumblr, Dailymotion, Dailytube, MThai, Vuclip, Mrpopat, Metacafe, Liveleak, Vidme, Funnyordie, Vevo, Tune, 3GPMania, SAPO, Pinguda, Skymovies, Whatsapp, Vine, Pagalworld, etc.
There is a PRIVATE option where you can set your personal videos to the private listing, which later could not be found using any of the apps. The private section will be secured with four digit PIN.
There is also URL request section from the platform list where you can request for the desired websites to be added to the list.
