The ProTube Cydia app is a complete YouTube application with tons of advantages over Apple’s stock YouTube.app. In ProTube you can browse normally through YouTube, watch videos in High Quality or Standard Quality, manage your account, comment etc. You can also download an unlimited amount of YouTube videos and watch them offline. If you are someone who would like to download the audio from Music videos, for example, just the mp3 audio can be downloaded too.
The ProTube Cydia application also includes a complete download manager, and includes support for AirPlay so you can stream videos to your TV. Another neat feature is that downloads can be interrupted and ProTube also will block annoying ads which makes loading of YouTube videos even faster.

We already told you about an awesome Cydia tweak known as ProTube, a perfect and better alternative to the stock iOS YouTube app. With the ProTube tweak, you could not only watch videos, but also download them, convert them to Mp3 and manage all that. Now, the tweak has received an update and a hoard of new features that make it even better.

- Better download management, less errors, less processing time needed.
