Windows Phone’s Youtube app ‘Metrotube’ is back

MetroTube, a Youtube app for Windows phone got back after being removed on January 1, 2012 in Windows Phone market place because it couldn’t access the official HD YouTube API. Recently, Lazyworm Apps, the creator of Metrotube announced that their goal is to make Metrotube the most popular Youtube app for Windows Phone ever created.

“As many already know, we opted to pull Metrotube from the Marketplace at the start of this year.
As stated in the letter we wrote to our customers, this was due to workarounds we were using and the fact that we couldn’t ensure the future of the app.
Our goal from the very beginning was to deliver a rich YouTube experience that could be officially promoted by Microsoft (or Google). It was for this reason that we never supported features such as video download or the playback of non-mobile content and why we have spent the past 7 months investigating alternative avenues of delivering the same rich experience via official means.
We were truly hopeful that we could resolve these issues however it has gotten to the stage where we’ve exhausted all of our options.Essentially, we have done everything in our power to go through official channels without any luck. We don’t want to see the project that has consumed a year and half of our lives go to waste like this and so we’ve decided to re-launch Metrotube for free.
We hope the app receives a big enough response from the Windows Phone community justifying the need for Google or Microsoft to show us a little more support.”
said on a blog post.

However, the application is not yet finished but the company anticipates for a great blow this year.
