LazyTube – Video App Review

This is a video app review of “LazyTube”, brought to you by the developer Lazyworm. Version 2.1 was used for this review.

LazyTube is a fully-featured YouTube app that has really come a long way since the initial release. When Windows Phone 7 initially released in late 2010, early adopters quickly realized that they had to install a YouTube application from Microsoft to be able to view videos, and that they were stuck to using YouTube’s mobile website. LazyTube was one of the first YouTube apps that allowed for slick graphical interface and additional features.

LazyTube includes nearly all the features you might want in a YouTube application and performs well. Interesting to note, at this time, both the “YouTube” and “LazyTube” applications are identical on the Marketplace. One is free, and one isn’t. It’s certainly your choice if you want to support the developer at this time. Lazyworm promises added features for paid users on the upcoming version 2.2.
