Responsible Use of Ads
Since, the app is free, you could assume it is filled with annoying ads. However, this is not the case as I found out while I was testing out the app that the ads are not at all distracting.
Ads are out of the way, giving you the freedom to enjoy your content.
How to Download Videos and Music with Snaptube
Downloading videos and music with Snaptube is easy. Just click the download icon or button, and in a couple of seconds, you could be watching videos natively on your device.
There are two scenarios for video download on Snaptube. The first is downloading from the list of trending videos and the second is using the shortcut icon to browse specific social networking sites for videos.
We will be covering both scenarios here.
Download Trending Videos on Snaptube
This approach is straight forward, just find a video either by scrolling through the list of trending videos or by searching for a video using the search bar.
Once you see what you like, tap the download icon on the bottom right corner of the video’s thumbnail for the download to begin.
You will be given an option to select the resolution you want to download the video in. The higher the resolution, the better the quality of the video, but the higher the data required to download the video.
You will see the data required to download the video at each resolution. To save data download at a lower resolution.
You can also download in mp3 audio format to save even more data.
Tap on the button of the resolution you want the video in. I will pick 720p HD Video, which is just 36.4MB for this test.
In the new page that opens, tap the yellow download button to start the download. Your downloaded videos will be stored in the Snaptube folder in the Gallery.
Download Videos on Social Sites using Snaptube
Have you ever seen a funny video on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and wishing you could download it on your mobile phone for personal consumption or to share with your friends later.
Snaptube is one app that fulfills your wish. Just click on the icon of the social networking site on the Snaptube homescreen or Video sites page.
Then login to the social site using the built-in browser in the app.
Browse to find the video you want to download.
Videos will have a download button on their bottom right corner.
Click on the button to get to the download page where you will be given options on format. MP4 seems to be the only option here and there are no options for choosing resolutions like in the earlier example.
Tap the format you want and click on yellow download button on the page that emerges.
That’s it. You can now check the Snaptube folder in Gallery for downloaded videos.
How to Add Shortcuts to More Social Networking Sites on Snaptube
In order to download videos using Snaptube, you have to access the mobile website of the social networking site with the built-in browser in the Snaptube app.
However, you cannot enter the URL of the site directly rather you access them through their shortcuts (or speed dials). A few sites are featured on the homescreen with more on the Video Sites page. You can also add more sites from the bookmark page by clicking on the More button in the Video Sites page.
To add a site to bookmark, click on the add to bookmark icon (top right corner of the bookmark page) and enter the name and the URL of the site you wish to add to bookmark and tap ADD.
To create a shortcut (or speed-dial) for a bookmark entry in the Video Sites page, tap on the plus sign (+).
The first two rows of eight shortcuts appear on the homescreen. You can change the position of any shortcut by dragging it and dropping it to any position on the screen.
This action will also enable you control which shortcuts appear on the homscreen by making sure they are placed in the first 2 rows.
Snaptube is great app for killing boredom. You can watch unlimited videos and music free and if you want you can download some more on your device to watch later. You can try it out today. Learn More Here
