5 Media Android Apps Not Available on Google Play Store
The Google Play Store boasts 1.8 Million android apps as recorded in November 2015. Each undergoes verification before uploading. Not every app passes Google’s testing line. Some apps slip through but later get removed for violating laws.
Today, I will showcase some of the best Media apps that were not included in the Play Store or have been banned.
Tubemate is a popular download application that was removed from the Play Store for not adhering to YouTube’s copyright laws. However, the application is still available and continues to be popular.
For those unfamiliar with Tubemate, it’s an Android app that allows you to download videos from streaming websites such as YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, and Facebook. You can download videos in various formats and convert them to audio.
NewPipe is an open source Android app on F-droid (a library of open source Android apps). It serves as a front-end for YouTube, allowing access to YouTube and its content without an account and additional features.
You can search and view videos without feeds or trending tabs. Features include downloading video and audio in various formats, as well as playing video audio in the background (ideal for music videos).
Settings allow for playing videos in an external video player or audio player, setting a default video resolution and audio format. Tor browser support is also available.
If you’re outside the US and want to try YouTube’s New Music Service, here’s a quick guide.
Another popular Android app for downloading videos is SnapTube. SnapTube has a better design and easier navigation compared to Tubemate. The best thing about SnapTube is its lightweight nature and efficient resource usage. Some notable features of SnapTube include categorized videos and the option to bookmark videos. Additionally, SnapTube offers a fast download mode and the ability to download multiple videos simultaneously.
If you’re looking for a YouTube downloader app, Videoder is the one. It allows you to download multiple YouTube videos in different formats. Simply search for a video and select the ones you want to download. Tap the download button to choose the media format. Videoder also provides a quick download button for individual videos, as well as the option to customize the app theme and download MP3 metadata for music videos.
VideoMix is a streaming application that allows you to watch movies and TV shows without any cost. It retrieves links from popular movie streaming websites such as Sockshare, Putlocker, Moveshare, and more. You have the option to stream the content using a video player or download it directly to your smartphone.
Occasionally, if there is a connection issue with the server, you may encounter an error message. However, apart from that, the application functions smoothly. Additionally, you can find torrent links and descriptions of the movies and shows directly from their IMDB page.
Some Love for Such Apps
These apps are not available on Play Store, but they are still popular. Some apps deserve to be popular but can’t due to a lack of exposure. One reason for this is that people sometimes don’t trust these apps. However, the apps showcased here are not malicious and don’t contain viruses. It’s also important not to download apps from untrusted sources. So, what are your thoughts on these apps? Would you like us to share more similar apps? Let us know in the comments.
