    not ProTube or the official YouTube app , I hate the UI and I need a volume slider


    Tubex claims he got hacked and you can't login anymore , tubie is gone from the App Store
    I'm looking for an app similar to these 2 apps

    Which features should this 3rd party YouTube have aside of the volume slider? The majority of 3rd party apps have loads of (video) ads and some that do offer (illegal) cache/offline feature but most of them are removed quite quickly from the App Store (ofcourse).

    I don't mind ads I just like the layout of mctube/tubie/tubest/tubex, these apps never had ads before a video started anyway
    I got a new iPad and tubie is gone from the App Store , tubex is still there but I can't login
    Most of the other third party apps won't let me login

    If login feature is a must then I don't know any other then ProTube but you don't like that UI.
    I love the fact though that it doesn't show (video) ads on YouTube. However it's also not always working to quickly watch a video. Let me know when you find one that works for you. Sorry that I can't be of any further help.

    Tubex is my favourite app on the iPad! Somehow I managed to install the app via Xcode and get Allow background playback option in settings back. But I can no longer reproduce it for my iPhone. So I installed Tubie on my iPhone that brought some background functionality back and this app is now also gone even from the Purchased tab of the AppStore. And this is due to Google's frustrating policies. I use Adguard Pro to block the ads across the OS with DNS blocking. And it works really well in Tubex as well. I now have no ads whatsoever! I have an iPad Air 2 and I'm holding on buying the new iPad because I'm afraid to loose such a fantastic app that does everything that I need YouTube app to do:
    • No ads
    • Background playback
    • Picture-in-Pirture Support
    • Intuitive interface

    It sounds like a great app that Tubex with similar features as ProTube but with a different UI and maybe also are more stable playback. It's unfortunate the app your are mentioning is no longer in the App Store, there seem to be a few apps in the App Store with a similar name though. Who is the developer and how does the app icon look like?
