The third party YouTube clients for Windows 10 Mobile continue to knock it out of the park. Awesome Tube UWP just got a UI update for its latest version, released in the Store overnight. Claimed is a UI overhaul, though the changes seem minor-ish to me... Still, it's all super smooth and fresh and very well coded - no hangs, no waits, just smooth playback while the UI is used underneath a video.
For anyone keeping score, here's the full changelog for the current v126.96.36.199:
Improved performance and user experience
New 'cardboard' (360 video) support
New 'theater' mode on desktop
Add new playlist feature
Bug fixes and optimisations
A few screens of the new version in action. Although there are various themes, including a dark mode, the Settings pane still appears light - curiously!
Your eyes don't deceive you in the Settings pane - there's a download function built-in here too, for watching videos offline! (right) a smooth and elegant UI, though not too different to that I reviewed a few months ago?
With everything going - an upload, a video playing in the corner, the UI is still perfectly smooth - nice coding! (right) circular icons indicate subscriptions, as usual...
Awesome Tube shines in landscape mode - watch a video whilst browsing both description and notes, plus all the comments. Ditto for Continuum and on full Desktop Windows 10 too, of course.
