Metrotube Will be Returning to the Windows Phone Marketplace For Free (Soon)July 5, 2012 2 Comments
That is what we saw when Lazyworm (the devs) announced that they will be pulling their youtube apps off the Windows Phone Marketplace. That was back in December of 2011 and we were all really saddened because the application was really popular on the marketplace.
Now the same developers have announced that the application is making a comeback to the Windows Phone Marketplace in a matter of hours and it will be FREE!
THE RETURN OF METROTUBE
As many already know, we opted to pull Metrotube from the Marketplace at the start of this year.
As stated in the letter we wrote to our customers, this was due to workarounds we were using and the fact that we couldn’t ensure the future of the app.
Our goal from the very beginning was to deliver a rich YouTube experience that could be officially promoted by Microsoft (or Google). It was for this reason that we never supported features such as video download or the playback of non-mobile content and why we have spent the past 7 months investigating alternative avenues of delivering the same rich experience via official means.
We were truly hopeful that we could resolve these issues however it has gotten to the stage where we’ve exhausted all of our options. Essentially, we have done everything in our power to go through official channels without any luck. We don’t want to see the project that has consumed a year and half of our lives go to waste like this and so we’ve decided to re-launch Metrotube for free.
We hope the app receives a big enough response from the Windows Phone community justifying the need for Google or Microsoft to show us a little more support.
Sucks that things didn’t go their way but I am really glad that the app is making a comeback. We will let you know as soon as the app is available.
