Join the beta for Toib, a beautiful new YouTube app


The official YouTube app for Windows Phone isn’t coming any time soon, but that doesn’t mean you should be without your favorite web videos. There are a few solid options available for accessing YouTube. The newest app is from the developer that brought us Phonly, an excellent Feedly app. This new app is called Toib, and it’s currently in beta.

Toib borrows a lot of the design from Feedly, and that’s a very good thing. We loved how Feedly looked and operated. We feel the same about Toib. You are first greeted with a page of thumbnails for popular videos, but you can easily switch to different genres. A swipe over shows a full list of your subscriptions (assuming you are signed in) and a number for how many unwatched videos.

The video player in Toib is actually just the default player for Windows Phone. You don’t get all the options you would expect, but the trade-off is YouTube can never break the app. The video page allows you to read comments, rate the video, and see related content. If you would like to try out Toib you can join the beta now. Just head on over to this website and fill in your information.
