When it comes to providing users complete freedom, Google and Apple are polar opposites of each other. While Apple relatively maintains a closed-loop ecosystem of devices by making multi-platform content sharing impossible, Google, along with its Android OS, is all about spreading the love.
However, when it comes to privatizing the largest video platform in the world, Google is no different from Apple. It limits mobile users' ability to listen to YouTube videos with the screen turned on at all times and make offline video downloader a limited and premium feature to have.
For times when you find the perfect playlist on YouTube or a captivating audiobook that you wish to listen to while being offline, what option do you have left? Sure, there are plenty of ways you can convert YouTube to MP3, but how to move them over to your iPhone? Fortunately, SnapDownloader not only delivers as a video downloader tool but also helps you convert YouTube videos to iTunes.
