JetVD: YouTube Aid
Fed up of streaming YouTube on your phone? Now you can download the videos instead
JetVD: YouTube Aid Review
by on August 14, 2010
With smartphone screens getting larger and the use of OLED becoming more and more prevalent, it is now a joy and not a annoyance to watch video content on a small screen. Google knows this and this is why it is putting a YouTube app (the video company it owns) on to pretty much all Android phones.
But, unless you are using Wi-Fi, streaming video content eats up your 3G data bundle faster than you can say Lightsaber Kid.
Despite its unfortunate name JetVD (VD?) makes it easy to download YouTube videos to your Android device, ready to watch at a later date.
The app allows you to search YouTube through its search bar. It doesn’t let you search visually, so you need to know what you are looking for when you load the app up. Searching is quick, though, and once you have found the video you want, you have four quality options to choose from.
These range from 3GP and FLV files, to MP4 and HD at 720p quality.
Once you choose your poison, the app will start downloading and you can see the progress of this in your status bar. To find the videos you have downloaded, just go back to the menu screen of the app and it will be there for you to watch.
JetVD works like a charm. We just hope that Google turns a blind eye to the app, as similar applications have disappeared from the Market before.
