    THE VERDICT

    TurboTube is an exquisitely designed YouTube player, and a top notch alternative to the official YouTube app. The name gives you a good indication of the app’s most prominent feature: super-fast video replay, and all tailored to you.

    Preload selected videos so you don’t have to wait around for buffering, and avoid annoying stalling.

    This incredibly intuitive app lets you watch high quality videos on demand, learning what you like as you play to keep your playlist stocked up with treats.

    THE PROS

    The TurboTube app allows you to perfectly buffer up your videos before playing, meaning no lagging or stalling. Simply tap any of the grey play buttons and await for them to turn green – then they are good to go. You can do this for individual videos or a playlist.

    This really does work a treat, and we found that whether we tested on Wi-Fi or 3G, the playback quality was consistently smooth and bump-free.

    If you grant TurboTube access to your Facebook and Twitter accounts, it will aggregate a Social Feed of YouTube videos shared by your network- and preload them all for instant playback. You can also do the usual, like share and like videos.

    The app is neat and attractive, and very intuitive to use. A highly recommended alternative YouTube player.

    THE CONS

    Not every YouTube feature appears to be available – so no commenting, for example.

    Also, when logging in with a Google account, you may find that all the additional sections like subscribed channels, favorites etc do not sync over perfectly.
