I don't like the GUI but the app does download Youtube movies for free. So no complaints. :)

Tubulator is a terrific application. Jan, Tubulator's developer, as done great work. When contacted over any issue, he personally responds to a user's mail and concerns. Recently, an update created issues with my version of the Mac OS, and Jan addressed this issue quickly, and e-mailed me to notify me of a new update correcting the issue. I appreciate his hard work and interest in his users.

Very nice little App.
And I really like, that the developer listens to my askings - making the app work on PPC OSX 10.4 and not only Intel ;-), thanx for that.

Though the interface needs a rework it works as advertised.
Also, sometimes it stops downloading the youtube movie for no reason.

I have downloaded many, many, videos (1000++), and never had a stalled download as you describe - to me it sounds like a network issue. However, I will try to handle a stalled download in a better way. For now, retrying the download should suffice.

Also, I agree that the UI needs more work.

I really like this application. Where another application failed to download videos frequently, Tubulator has been successful on each download. I too wonder about the temporary status of my download, and sincerely hope that my download will become permanent at some point. I want to continue using this application, because it just plain works.

It works just like it's advertised.
The only thing that I didn't like and that I think should be stated is that after 27 days the version you've downloaded will expire and you'll need to download it again.

Though this is still considered "free", it's a little bit of a hassle to have to uninstall and install again.

Wish I knew that before.

I'm sorry about the expiry, but it seems for me the only way to make users download the latest version. As you know, people are very quick at making judgements, and I don't want people judging the software based on older versions - Tubulator is under heavy development. For example, I'm currently working on video playback from within the application.

The software IS free until it reaches v. 1.0. I will strongly consider a smoother software update process (letting the application update itself, for example).

Thanks you your input!

Overall, works as advertised. Yet I am still amazed that some still choose to charge a fee for an app that can be had elsewhere (with the same features) for free.

At the time of writing, Tubulator is still free (until v. 1.0). Feel free to make this statement when the application actually reaches 1.0, so you have a fair base of comparison - Tubulator is under heavy development, and the features seen is not the final picture.
