TubeTab for YouTube

Great App… nice to be able to set small window that is always on top.

good but….

Love the app, but it would be great if I could set up a playlist. Perhaps an update?

What a waste!

If this application is not slow…it just stops working. Poor video quality.
One of the worst apps I have tried.
