I think it’s pretty safe to say that we have all been in a situation when we watched something on YouTube, fell in love with it, and hoped that we could somehow download the video on our smartphone. I know I have. There has been certain situations I have been in when the service was not the best, so there was no way to load the video via YouTube. Had I had the video saved in my camera roll, I would not have found myself in that type of situation. Not only is it extremely convenient to have the video you want accessible without having to boot the actual app or website, but it is awesome that simple apps were created to dissipate any complication. Next, I am going to be covering the Top 5 apps to download YouTube videos.

Tubemate is a very popular application for downloading YouTube video, and it is free in the app store! Yes, free. Once the app is opened, you can search any video you want. After selecting your video, the green arrow at the top of the application will allow you to start the downloading process. When the video is done downloading, you will be prompted to select the quality in which you would like to save your video. Once that part is completed, another green arrow will appear that reads “download.” When those simple steps are completed, your video will be available for viewing.

Snaptube has gained a lot of buzz as well. This application gives you luxury of downloading videos from a multitude of other apps like: Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, Facebook, and Twitter just to name a few. Users enjoy this application be it is not limited to only YouTube videos. Just like Tubemate apk, you will search the desired video and click on the arrow that quickly downloads the content you chose.

Vidmate is another application to save videos, but don’t be confused once you download the app. The app looks almost identical to YouTube itself. After searching the video that you want downloaded, a red arrow at the bottom of the screen will appear to begin the process. This application also gives the option of selecting the quality in which you would prefer the video being saved as.

OGYoutube is next on the list. This application also resembles the actual YouTube application and website. It even allows you to sign in into your YouTube account if you have one. After searching and selecting your video, the download option is located directly underneath. After selecting your preferred quality, the video will be downloaded to your device shortly after.

Last but not least, Videoder gets the job done quick and effectively just like the others listed above. This app, similar to Vidmate and OGYoutube, resembles the YouTube application almost exactly. After browsing to find which video you want to be saved, an arrow will appear. After tapping the arrow, the application quickly prompts you to choose the quality of the video. Lastly, you will be prompted to start your download.

All 5 applications are very similar in style, and gets the job done in 3 to 4 simple steps.
