It can be a little a little frustrating using the HTML5 version of YouTube on your BlackBerry 10 handset - especially when there are some great tools for making great apps.
Luckily, we have some great developers in the community sich as Marco Bavagnoli who brought us the YouTube Download Manager.
Super brings all of the functionality that you'd expect on the YouTube desktop site into a single app. You can quickly jump between different views using the action menu from anywhere within the app. Searching is fast and everything feels responsive.
What's probably important to a lot of people is being able to connect Super to your own YouTube account so that you can easily watch favourites and channels that you are subscribed to.
It also has an experimental feature to support leanback devices - but I haven't had the chance to try this out yet.
It wouldn't hurt to have a little more polish in the way that the videos are displayed, but it's a minor gripe when you realise how more accessible YouTube becomes thanks to its interface.
Check out the video, read on for the full feature list, and then grab it from BlackBerry World.
