A free app for audio tracks
SnapTube Video is an application you can use to explore websites like YouTube and download audio and video files. It also functions as a standalone .mp3 and .mp4 player. If you’d rather listen to music in the background while you use other apps, you can download tracks to listen while you work.
Convert the videos you love to music files
This application starts off great with a friendly interface and fast loading speeds. When you need to start a SnapTube download, you simply type the URL you’re interested in within the address bar. Here you’ll select the file format and quality. Afterward, the app automatically stores it on your device, and you can then categorize it or place it in specific playlists.
The video format is also available. You can select from websites or other apps like Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and WhatsApp. SnapTube also has options to determine the file size and quality. This can reach up to 4K. If you’re trying to save data and space, you should lower the resolution.
The interface, as a whole, is intuitive and comfortable. If you prefer the app to stay on top of other programs you’re using, you can use the floating window mode. SnapTube will appear as a small window you can interact with while you chat or browse other applications. It’s easy to set up and doesn’t drain too many resources.
This app is well known for its security and privacy protection. Your downloads and browsing are private, and there are measures in place to prevent malware and virus infections. While it’s usually better to download the latest version of any program, for more features and bug fixes, older SnapTube apk files are still safe.
Video playback in the background
A much sought after feature on YouTube is the background playback for videos. It’s stuck behind a paywall on that website. However, the SnapTube app has this function at no extra charge. Here you open the application and select the content you’d like to watch. Afterward, you can swap to other applications, and the audio portion of the video will continue to play.
Snap has a variety of search options to optimize results. You can sort by Genre, Artist, Duration, Date, and more. If you’re in a hurry, you can add these songs and videos to your bookmarks or different playlists. Later you can download these in sets, and they’ll queue automatically.
Much like TubeMate, this application loads content in its raw format. So, when you’re using popular websites that are normally plagued with ads, SnapTube avoids the integrated advertisements in the original format. This is great for most songs but is especially convenient for podcasts and audiobooks.
A decent media player
While SnapTube iOS can’t hold a candle up to Spotify in regards to interface or playback quality, it still works like a charm. There are minimal hiccups and only a few issues with its file management. For example, if you need to configure multiple playlists to play in order, it struggles to create a fluid transition. You can run into an error where it shuts down or pauses on its own.
Easily manage your creator accounts
If you’re a streamer or creator, then this app will come in handy. You can use the SnapTube login system to access all of your accounts. If you’re on YouTube, you can hop on and access the creator studio, comment regulation, and more. The same applies to platforms like Twitch and Mixer. However, it can’t keep up with the demands of streaming; you can’t broadcast with this app.
No social integration
One frustration is the lack of a set of social features. Other programs have options to share and comment on other people’s pages. With SnapTube, you can’t add friends, share videos, or send messages. This would be a fantastic addition to an already great app.
Great features with a few issues
Overall, SnapTube commits to an idea and follows through. It’s easy to use and has a comfortable interface. There are a few bugs here and there, but it’s not enough to disregard the app entirely. With a few extra features this application could rise to the top.
In the latest SnapTube update, you can now export files to a separate app for file conversion. An issue with audio playback for window mode is now fixed. You can now store login information; there’s no need to input your username and password every time you access a website.
