Instube Review: Design

Instube has a material UI and icons, alongside the eye-catching colour distribution. The top URL bar is of Orange-Pink gradient colour design where we can see the cions for side panel toggle and download section. On the home page, several icons direct to the corresponding websites have been given. The app lists top-tier sites on top of the home page, just below the URL/Search bar, including Youtube, Facebook, SoundCloud, Twitter, etc. Just below, more other websites are shown. Also, we can add or remove particular websites or platforms from there.

Instube has AdMob ads included, coming in between the app elements. Sometimes, they pop up as full screen mostly while switching from one option to other. However, it is still straightforward to find out which one is ad and which is not, so that we cannot get easily misinformed. Concerning the hamburger slider panel on left side, most of the app options are assigned neatly and minimally. The Music section contains the downloaded music as well as the ones in the local storage. It also serves the functions of music player and video player, playing both native and downloaded media contents. One of the major features that we would see the Instube app is its Private mode, where you can browse, download and store videos in hidden phase.

In case you are unaware, Google discourages the Youtube video downloading as it is against the Youtube Privacy term policy. So none of the Youtube Video downloaders can be seen on PlayStore, but it is available to download from the Instube’s website. So you’ll get the package as an apk, to be installed manually. Inorder to install the app on your smartphone, make sure that App Installation from unknown sources is turned on (Settings > Security > Unknown Sources).
