YouTube is undoubtedly one of the most glaring Windows Store no-shows, and while dozens of YouTube players have sprung up in Microsoft’s app store to try to fill the void, most are simple Web wrappers or other uninspired fare. Then there’s Hyper for YouTube.
Hyper for YouTube rocks not only because it sports an imminently usable, incredibly attractive black-and-red design, but because it comes complete with bells and whistles like video quality options and YouTube Account support. (Yeah, it sounds basic, but that’s just how lackluster Hyper’s competitors are.)
The start screen is a bit basic, showing only the Most Popular and Favorite videos, but Hyper’s Search charm support is top-notch. And don’t tell Google, but the app lets you download videos, too.
