Metrotube has an optimized vertical orientation mode that is ideal for tablets or smartphones held and used vertically instead of horizontally.

YouTube Player has a high number of downloads and ratings. The app has a large focus on personalization, allowing users to customize their experience in a variety of ways, such as showing thumbnails of favorite videos on the main screen. Users can connect the app with their YouTube account to access preferences saved there and sync up videos watched, saved and liked.
Lucky Tube has an interface that closely mimics the original YouTube design, so there is less of a learning curve when first starting to use this app. It has an interface that is easy to use, features a related video list displayed beside of the current video and gives users easy access to video comments.
