We sometimes feel the need for downloading online videos (especially from YouTube) for offline access. Given that prominent streaming sites do not provide the option to download, we need to rely on other third-party applications. TubeMate is one of those apps. But if you don’t like using it for any reason, you should look into the list of TubeMate alternative apps that I am going to share here.
TubeMate Alternative Apps
1) Video Downloader Pro
The application I have shared above is only available for Android. So, you might ask for one to use on your iOS device. Here it comes, Best Video Downloader.
They follow almost the same design you see on mobile Safari browser. The seamless browser support helps you download all the videos without any stutter. It doesn’t charge anything extra for downloading and you can even keep the processes in the background to indulge in other activities.
You need to pay a few bucks to get your hands on this application.
VidMate is another app like TubeMate. VidMate is an improvised version of TubeMate, I should say. The main reason I ditched the first app is due to its dreary UI. On the other hand, this one here has got a perfect user interface.
VidMate packs in a browser inside the app, using which you can visit any web page and download embed videos if any. In case you use YouTube application a lot, you can direct VidMate to begin downloading a particular video by following Share>> VidMate.
If you search on Play Store, you will come across some impersonating applications. For the original app, you should use the link below.
SnapTube is yet another best alternative to TubeMate, which provides you with the perfect solution to download embedded videos from web pages. If you ask me for a video downloader app with the best user interface, my vote will go to the ballot box of SnapTube.
On the interface, they have links to popular video streaming websites in the form of tiles. You can tap on any of them, browse a video and start downloading it. Or else, you can use their address bar to paste the URL, so that you can avoid wandering and save time.
SnapTube is only available for Android.
4) eDl Lite
Are you an iOS user? Then, I know you might have started feeling irritated to see so many Android apps. eDl Lite is an iOS app that you can download from the official store.
The application comes up with a fully functional browser along with a file manager. You can use the browser to land on videos you like. The file manager helps you skim through the files too. The app is available on the store for free to download.
5) KeepVid Android
As the name suggests the app is specifically developed for Android platform. You can directly search on YouTube for videos using the inbuilt browser the application has got. It is also possible to download Facebook videos using KeepVid.
As in any other application here, this one offers a converter, which you can use to download the audio of the file in MP3 format. KeepVid manages batch processes well that speed gets equally divided among them.
You can use the link given below to download the app from the official site. They also have a QR code there, which you can use in case you are browsing this on a computer.
6) Ultra Downloader Plus
Ultra Downloader Plus is not just a video downloader for iOS. You can cast the content directly to PS4, Xbox or Smart TVs with this application. Opening the app creates an impression that it is a browser.
Once you get used to it, you will understand that UDP resembles a typical browser. You can use the address bar to paste the URL of the web page with the embedded video. Users can pause and resume the downloading processes and it doesn’t affect the quality at all.
You have got six TubeMate alternatives; three for iOS and three for Android. They all fulfill the same purpose but on different user interfaces. Of course, there may be some differences in the functioning and the supported formats too.
Just pick up an app and start using it. In any case you don’t like, you can move on to the next one in this list.
