TubeMate is a free app which allows you to view and download YouTube at blazing speed in your android device and is probably the best android app to download YouTube videos.
If you find yourself constantly browsing through YouTube videos then TubeMate is a must have app for you. Its amazing how TubeMate can stream videos faster than the standard YouTube app and the option to download those videos in a variety of resolutions and even as mp3 really makes it the contender for the best app to download YouTube videos. As TubeMate utilises multiple connections, even downloads are amazingly fast even over a slow internet connection.
The latest version of TubeMate (2.0.2) even supports DailyMotion, Facebook, YouKu, other HTML5 videos and boasts of a revamped Holo based UI which surely has given a fresh look to the app.
However, we’ll have to warn the users about the fake versions of TubeMate available in the Google Play Store and other websites. While an authentic version of TubeMate is not available in the Google Play Store, you can download the latest authentic version by visiting TubeMate‘s official website via your mobile device’s browser and clicking on the Download (AndroidFreeware) link. Alternatively, you can download the .apk file in your computer and later install it in your Android device. Be sure to allow “Unknown Sources” in your Settings > Security though.
This official installation guide might come in handy.
Happy streaming and downloading.
NOTE: According to Google’s Terms of Service, you cannot download contents from YouTube without the consent of Google or the Content license owner. Thus, we recommend this app only for users in parts of the world where internet connection is very slow resulting in high buffering time while playing YouTube videos. These users find it convenient to temporarily download and watch the videos rather than wait for it to load completely. Also, it is advised not to use the videos for any commercial use as this is an extreme breach of Google’s policies.

Great app but its only plays videos in small window. Maybe thats why it streams video faster. I found download very fast but like the author said don’t use it to rip off content owners. Use the app only if your internet connection is slow.
Download video to device, play in android media player of your choice. Easy enough. If you’re concerned about “ripping off” content owners, then:
1) don’t upload it to your channel or elsewhere–*that’s* where you’d really be ripping off content owners; otherwise, merely *watching* the videos could be considered ripping off the content owners–I’ve reported instances of this to the *actual* owners of content when I’ve found their videos on other people’s channels
2) you can delete it after you watch it
