TubeMate vs. Snaptube – Best Similarity and Differences Between Them

Both the Snaptube and Tubemate apps are popular among users of Android, who want to download videos from YouTube and pretty much any other streaming device. They both come with amazing features. This is the reason why most people do not know which one should they choose. We are here to put them both to the test and see which one is worth our time.


With this one, you can watch unlimited movies, TV shows, and videos, and it is entirely free. Its features are fantastic: the user interface is friendly, you can choose the resolution of the video before you download it, you can manage the downloaded content while it is still being downloaded. You can download videos, but not only from YouTube, but also from Dailymotion, and Vimeo, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

With this one, you can also watch unlimited movies, TV shows, and videos, and it is entirely free. It is straightforward to download from YouTube, the user interface is beautiful, the download speed is outstanding, and you can choose the resolution of the videos before you download them. This one can also be connected to Chromecast, and it gives you the ability to pause and resume downloads at any time.

What is similar about them?

These two apps share a lot in common. You can easily install them, and, after they did get installed, the downloading process of the video is not hard. They both let you decide on the quality of the video before you start downloading them, and you can also choose the resolution. What is great about them, besides the obvious, is that all the downloaded content goes straight – by default – on the SD card.

What is different about them?

Snaptube gives its users the option to look for specific videos, which are based on a keyword. This actually makes it very easy for people to search for content and find their favorite videos. Tubemate does not have this ability.

Tubemate cannot convert the videos into mp3 formats, but Snaptube can.

Snaptube allows the users to choose from many resolutions, Tubemate is quite limited.

Snaptube has the videos placed in categories of movies and music, but Tubemate does not have this feature yet.

So which are the conclusions drawn?

We cannot deny that both of these apps have outstanding features that make users’ lives easy. If we are to take a more careful look, we would say that Snaptube is better. But it does not mean that Tubemate is not good at all. This is why we cannot really choose a winner. The best idea in this situation is simply to try them both and see which one suits you best. They are also both available for Windows PC – which will make the choosing process even easier for you.
