App Store Gems: PocketTube is the must-have YouTube app for iPhone and MacBook

Every day we do a tour of the internet for you to find the best apps from the App Store for your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV. Today OMT editor Dunke van Boekel interrupts his binge of Star Warstrailers to tell you about PocketTube. The app to streamline your YouTube experience.

YouTube is packed with content, and that is not getting any less. About 2,500 new videos are uploaded every minute, so there is always something to watch. But with so much content, it is sometimes difficult to figure out who is actually making what. We like overview, and PocketTube offers that.

With PocketTube you can create groups on your iPhone and Macbook

The iPhone app and Mac extension let you create groups into which you can then organize the YouTube channels you’re subscribed to. For example, create a group for Tech news and add the YouTube channel of WANT and Corridor Crew. You can then open this group and the videos from only these channels will be listed for you.

In addition, PocketTube on iPhone lets you filter in that specific group by video length and date of release. But also whether something is an actual upload, a live stream, short or upcoming premiere. So very easy to navigate!

There is also a PocketTube extension available for browsers on your MacBook. This extension is simply integrated with the YouTube website and, in addition to the functions of the app, also adds a kind of dashboard on which you highlight different playlists, groups and channels. This way you can immediately see whether your favorite YouTuber has posted something new online.

A clearer YouTube

There are a few more additional features available to people who donate to the iPhone app creator. That amount amounts to 3.42 euros per month or 34 euros for a year. In exchange for your pennies, you get the option to add subgroups (think, for example, news or comedy channels that cover similar topics) to groups on PocketTube.

It will also be possible to sort videos via tags after the donation. Tap gaming on your MacBook, and you’ll see all gaming-related videos from the channels you’ve subscribed to. PocketTube makes it so nice and easy to quietly search through YouTube what you’re going to watch.

You can find the app here.
