Download arkTube – Free YouTube Downloader for Android (Version 7.1.1)
The description of arkTube
arkTube is a light weight, feature-filled YouTube audio and video downloader for Android. It uses one of the most actively developed open-source project in the world: youtube-dl to download video or audio from YouTube. Some apps such as Videoder or TubeMate make use of youtube-dl, but these mostly function as a wrapper for the YouTube app.
arkTube is very simple to use. Simply select the share button (arrow) on the top right corner while you are watching any video and choose arkTube. You can then set the video quality you need to download.
One drawback to use arkTube is that to download videos in high resolution, you have to purchase the donation app on Google Play Store (just $1.99). The free version will give you basic support and access to several of the most useful features, but the paid version is where the app genuinely shines.
Both the free and paid version has been tested with several different CTS-certified ROMs. If you have an issue activating the pro features, switch to another ROM or do a refund within the Play Store. If you miss the 2 hours refund window, email to: [email protected]
