vTube for YouTube [FREE]



vTube for YouTube [FREE]

Reviews of vTube for YouTube [FREE]
Reviewed by Happy13 - not what I'm looking for

This app is great if your looking for just a YouTube app but in my case I was searching for a music downloader like it promises in the title. Although it says it's a downloader I tried every possible way to download a song and it just wouldn't let me. My screen would just get really dark and stay that way until I touched my screen. Plus there is a lot of adds that are difficult to avoid.


Reviewed by Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Artist - Doesn't play playlists.

It can't play Playlists.
I am not familiar with other youtube apps on Kindle fire, but was disappointed when couldn't play playlists.
Other than that it seems good.


Reviewed by Star - Bootleg Tube

I best advise is to stay far away from this app. Too many complications and hardly nothing works. It's best to get the legit app.


Reviewed by exmptle - Someone should make a YouTube app that works

Inability to easily and consistently watch YouTube videos is one of the great flaws in the Kindle Fire. This app is minimally functional. Iin other words, it's better than nothing. My experience over the past few days is similar to what others have reported. It will play for a while then it freezes. It also will not let you play a continuous playlist. You must tap each video as you want to watch/listen to it. On the plus side, it will let you download YouTube videos for off-line viewing (but this leaves you in murky legal territory). At the current price, it won't send you to the poorhouse. I don't feel like I was ripped off, but I am a little disappointed.


Reviewed by Tonya G. - Keeps reinstalling itself...

I have this installed on both of my Kindle Fire HDs (7 and 8.9 inch) and every time I tap to open the app, it reinstalls itself. The app is up to date on both Kindle Fire HDs, but, it just keeps reinstalling itself when I tap to open it - I don't know why?!?! I enjoy using this app to watch youtube videos, but it's such a pain to wait on it to reinstall every time I tap to open it!!!


Reviewed by C. W. Larimer - Confusing

First off, when you open the app up, it shows you a mini tutorial. Then once you're done reading it, it brings you to a new .. page thing ( Still in the app ) and you paste the YouTube link where it says "Paste YouTube Link Here", and once you do, you press the button right below it where it says "Go!". Then it brings up a "General App tutorial" That just sorta introduces you. It gives you many options on how you want to download it that I find very confusing and no matter which one I chose it didn't work :/


Reviewed by a review for you by me you see - eh... could of gone better

When I first got on, I thought that it would be great. I tried to watch a video, and it would buffer and load literally every seven or so seconds. I managed to get through one video without any stopping, but it continued to happen on my other videos. So I did what I would do on my computer when a video buffered: I set it back a few seconds so it could keep loading before the dial. That doesn't work for this. If you set the dial back, the bit that has already loaded re sets and you're back to waiting for it to load. :(


Reviewed by Cynthia - its good..

This is just an app to watch youtube through, it is not a youtube video downloader. That is the only reason i gave it 2 stars, it was slightly misleading in the description; or perhaps, i didn't read enough. I thought it was a downloading app, but rather just a viewing app so...nothing spectacular...its good...it works....but I'll just use the youtube app. lol ;D


Reviewed by cassie - Real is better

I wish that the Kindle fire Hd, or any Kindle for that matter would actually get youtube on them! I can't stand the fake apps that say their the sister apps and what not! Bring me some real stuff! I pay good money to keep my kindle going, I'd appreciate the real stuff in return!


Reviewed by Andrew Ramey - A rather mediocre application.

This app in particular has proven to be twitchy and schizophrenic in the sense that it is often unresponsive and at times completely non-operational as it often times cannot successfully stream a video all the way through and crashes frequently. On the upside, the user interface is pleasantly simplistic and very satisfying to use after logging in with an account.


Reviewed by Mild_Prepper_10 - won't work

I've used this app for 4-5 months with no problems, but now I can't watch any of the videos. Any of them.


Reviewed by LOL I'm not even - Irritated

When I exit a video, the audio keeps playing and the only way to get it to stop is restarting my kindle. I deleted the app from my device as well as from my cloud so that it might stop without me having to turn my device off again. It is completely gone from my device but as I write this poor review.... my video is still blasting out the speakers. Even with no app to display the video, it is STILL GOING. This. App. Sucks.

Reviewed by Monet_OTAKU - It started of great......

I purchased this app because I wanted to be able to download videos when I had wifi and still be able to watch them when I didn't. At first it was working perfectly but it eventually just stopped . The app would still download the videos but they wouldn't play when I didn't have any wifi. That upsets me because if I purchase something that claim s to do something then it should do it. Please fix it.... I really did love this app.


Reviewed by NLA - At first it was great...

but it hasn't been working on my Kindle for the past week. When I contacted Amazon see if there was a fix, they told me to use the internet on the kindle to access Youtube, which wasn't a great answer for me. Our whole reason for the Kindle over the iPad was the Kindle has much better parental controls. I don't want my little guy accessing the internet, I can't monitor that usage as easily. The app hopefully will be fixed soon!


Reviewed by Jill Balogh - Unreliable and Inconsistent

When I first loaded up this app it ran really well. Now it doesn't run as well as it could. Sometimes it has a real hard time loading anything I click on when I get to the You Tube page. Loading is very unreliable and inconsistent. A lot of times it will load something and start to play it and then stop right in the middle to take a very long time to load up the rest. Voyage Apps has done a poor job at designing the technology that is required to access the You Tube website.


Reviewed by Lizzy Blackwell - GLITCHES GALORE

This app would be good... IF IT ACTUALLY WORKED. It is super glitchy. Things take about FIVE minutes to load!!! And then it will "stop responding" and you are about to have an absolute fit. And THEN when you search stuff, the new videos OVERLAP the old ones you searched so everything is a big mess and it will randomly log you out as well!!! I am about to scream my head off here!!! ERRRRRRRR


Reviewed by RKS - Mediocre

Plays videos and that's about it. If you are subscribed to people you more than likely will not see their latest videos. Ads at the end of each video are annoying and you can't skip them or pay to have ad free. Ads at the end of every video all the time, make it stop.

Reviewed by Amazon Customer - not what I expected

I haven't used it much, but was looking for an alternative to the silk browser that doesn't seem to be able to handle many YouTube videos, at least not the mobile app videos. I really want bookmarks though -- which I haven't found yet, as my 3-year-old likes a bunch of things, but as you may guess is impatient. But, really likes to watch his videos when he finds the Kindle laying around.

Reviewed by Paige - crucial flaw for subscriptions

Would be much better, perhaps a 4 star app if the subscribed channels
1: showed up in correct order
And 2: even appeared at all.
Had to stop using the app since it was only showing about 1/4th of the actual videos being uploaded.


Reviewed by S. May - Freezes.

This app used to be capable of letting me watch videos after my silk would not let me open videos (freezes then asks would you like to close silk browser when I try to open a video). But after the update, it freezes when loading the video and the closes. Please help me with this. Otherwise without this issue, it would be a great app besides the paying for certain videos.


Reviewed by ivyjane - unsatisfied

It shut down often would take forever to load.


Reviewed by The app king - Good but too glitchy

So here's the deal......the app is good. It's a nice little YouTube clone app with nice features,like the swipe thing to turn brightness and volume up ans down. However the app itself is buggy and crashes way too often. For instance, if I were to turn brightness all the way down,not only would the app crash,my kindle would crash and it would take me several tries to turn it back on. Plus if searching your web history wasn't already a PAIN, the alp crashes constantly when you do so. So yes,it's a good app and I enjoy it more than youtube on the browser,but it's so buggy it makes the app less enjoyable than it should be. All in all ,you should search for another app if you don't just use the browser.

This app was great when I first purchased it! But after a month, it just stopped working. I could type in the title, click on it, and it would pull the video up.

It's very annoying for me so I am uninstalling this right now.

When will YouTube make their own Kindle app? This 3rd party app is buggy and unreliable because it isn't made by YouTube at all and they don't know how to properly connect to YouTube.

I got this app thinking "hey I can watch youtube videos so much easier now" well I was COMPLETELY wrong. See if you watch a video that's over 4 min long (who doesn't?)

The worst part is youtube doesn't work on my kindle anymore so I'm stuck with this app. D': I mean if you make the videos load faster then I'd take back everything I said and
say this was a 5 star app but until you do anything like that I'll have to suffer with this app and you'll have to suffer with bad reviews. (Also the only reason your not getting a 1 star review is because you actually play video unlike every other youtube app in this appstore

Just use silk on Kindle. This is so pointless to use. Why don't people just use silk anyways...just look up YouTube.
I tried to upload a video and on my notifications it says that my video is uploading 0% and on my uploads on the app it says it's a deleted video which is making me really mad! I can't upload anymore YouTube videos on my kindle anymore...

I wish there was a GOOD app where you could actually upload videos on...you can do that on iPad and now I'm the most upset person ever...I can't do anything.I thought this app was gonna let me upload but I guess not...you know what! I was gonna give this app two stars and now it's getting one and I wish zero .

Forget this dumb app, just go on the silk, just make sure your own the mobile YouTube...what's the portion with you people, you kindle must be messed up or something..just watch YouTube on silk! You don't need Adobe flash player and stuff...if you get a kindle you should know how to use it

Infested with full screen ads like a sick AIDs patient . I will never buy a kindle or any tablet that doesn't support Google play,app store .no gmail app,no maps,and many more.you can't even download firefox


Reviewed by BMC - Last update broke it (as of 8/6/2014)

An incredible YouTube app. All videos available in HD if they were uploaded in HD, however, the last update has made videos load incredibly slow, and getting slower each time. It's also made my device (kindle fire HD 7") slow down and crash, to the point where I've had to factory reset it three times in the last month. I've tested it out, causing two of the causes for reset on purpose, and the first was by accident. Before I had downloaded this app, my kindle was fine. It ran smooth, showed every app I had, but ever since downloading (and paying the "upgrade" price) it has made it to where I have to go to the app store to open apps, and even then, they rarely run. It's made it to the point that even after another reset, my kindle has been permanently damaged. I've tried every solution I could find to try and save it, but it is dying. So, a word of warning to all, be careful with this app. It can kill you device.

Reviewed by StrexCorp - Best Crappy YouTube App

But that's not saying much. This app definitely has the ability to play videos at pretty decent quality, which is nice as the device I'm using is supposed to be the kindle fire hd. I should hope amazon content creators would attempt to make some apps for high quality youtube videos. However, these videos often end up pausing part way through to buffer or load and never do. Something that I blamed on my internet connection at first, but later discovered happens wherever I am attempting to watch a video. Recently I had to turn a video from 720p down to 360p because it wouldn't go past the halfway point of the video. Just wouldn't load. Even in 360p the video got to three quarters and wouldn't play past that. It was a ten minute video. The load times before the video plays have also been getting worse recently I've noticed. The quality of this app definitely went down after some update caused ads to appear at the top of the screen during the video as well as after. I'm usually someone who is pretty okay with ads, understanding they are there to give creators money to improve the app and live off of their creations. However the ads play at the end of the video and you must watch the entirety of the ad. They cycle through maybe ten ads for garbage amazon games like knock off matching bejeweled type games and the fake casino type games. The ads are so poor quality and listening to the same acapella bees five times in a row is enough to make you want to kill yourself. I often find myself desperately attempting to pause the video to avoid this fate worse than death. I haven't been to the end of a video in some time now, though. So the ads aren't something I've had to worry about. I have tried so many things to fix the app. I've deleted and redownloaded completely. I've deleted just my data. I've force stopped the app and opened it back up. I've turned the quality so far down I don't see the point in watching the video anymore. Out of all the YouTube apps, this one might be the best, but I'd still rather watch videos in silk where the quality might be poor and the load times might be crap but at least you won't have to listen to "Bee Brilliant." Once again we also see here how Google play continues to release far better apps for everything, leaving anyone who chose a kindle over a more expensive tablet super regretful of their cheap decision. Thanks amazon and kindle creators for all this mediocrity.

You can't download videos for free making it merely a video viewer not downloader. If you want to spend 1.99 for the "full" version. And if you don´t have much bandwidths then it will glitch.

The app sometimes loads fast but most of the time it takes forever to load and buffers through most of the video making it hard to enjoy the video but if you have a very good internet connection then this isn't a problem for the most part.


Reviewed by Michael - needs fixes

I love the picture but that's about all that this app has going for it for me, I cannot comment about the other functions because I cannot use them, it is so glitchy I cannot even tell if I can like videos or comment, every time I minimize the video and scroll down the page goes black and I have to scroll back up to the video for it to return to normal. Also every so often when I maximize the video and play it again the advertisements keep flashing on and off the screen making me have to reload the page.

I would also like to be able to browse my subscriptions' playlists to find videos from the past instead of having to scroll or search in the search bar.

So far that is it, I would love to see fixes at least before I buy pro.
