Viral Pro (YouTube Pop-up HD) Review
Viral Pro for Android gives you greater control over YouTube videos with a pop-up window
Many of us enjoy watching YouTube videos but don’t particularly like having to stay within the YouTube app to view the videos. Wouldn’t it be nice, then, if we could be doing something else, such as checking an email or seeing what’s coming through on another app? If that sounds good, then you will absolutely love Viral Pro (YouTube Pop-up HD).
The app allows you to watch videos in a pop-up window that can be enlarged to any size you desire and placed in a position that works well for whatever you are doing on your smartphone or tablet. When you close the Viral Pro app by tapping the Home button, the pop-up box remains and it is this great feature that allows you to multitask more effectively.
Imagine then, that you want to watch a tutorial explaining how to get the most of out a complex app. You could open up the video as a pop-up, open the app you want to learn about and have the video play while you carry out the functions. It’s also great for catching up on the latest music releases without surrendering the use of your phone. You can open more than one pop-up box if you really want to – but only if your device is up to it.
With video resolutions that can range from 144p to 1080p catering for quality as well as speed, and with a tab sliding interface for easy navigation, Viral Pro soon becomes an essential way to watch YouTube videos. It has a clean and easy-to-use interface with the functions neatly located in the right places. Sub-menus are called up from the thumbnail itself and this cuts down on the to-ing and fro-ing that some apps of this type can put you through.
You can watch videos offline, minimise and play videos in the background and log in to your account. It goes well beyond the scope of the YouTube app itself and yet loses nothing (other than a little bit of money from your pocket). In addition, as a welcome bonus, the paid version has no ads to distract from your viewing, making the app a definite must-have for regular YouTube users.
Being able to open YouTube videos in a pop-up window has a host of uses and it works extremely well.
