Sponsored App Review: Music Download Tube Pro

September 25, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: Music Download Tube Pro is, as you might have guessed an Android app that will allow you to download music on your Android device. It claims to offer all the music you could want, delivered to your Android smartphone for no extra cost. It’s a really simple application that doesn’t ask much of its users in order to deliver free music. However, we have some questions as to just how that’s possible. Hopefully, our below review of Music Download Tube Pro will answer a lot of these questions and let you know whether or not this is the music downloader app you’ve been looking for. It should also go without saying that there’s a potential for this sort of thing to be illegal.

How it Works: You’ll first need to download Music Download Tube Pro from the Play Store and then you’re greeted with a pretty simple search bar, which is fairly crude but all you need to do is input your search.

I’m going to search for Jimmy Eat World, one of my favorite bands, and I know I’ve paid for their music before so I don’t feel too bad getting it for free for testing purposes here.

You’ll be able to then take a look at the album art or whatever and then go ahead and download it..

Things don’t take too long to download either, which is a nice touch, as people don’t want to wait around to get their music after all.

Sadly, there’s no ID3 information in these downloads, which is actually a real pain as you’ll have to mess around with these MP3 files yourself.

One thing you should know about this is that it basically just searches YouTube and downloads the audio file from the music, I searched for a Fall Out Boy song and found it here. Then, I found the same video on YouTube, so it’s pretty obvious that’s what’s going on here.

Opinion: No doubt about it, Music Download Tube Pro is a really good way of getting music for free, in other words it’s a great way of stealing music. Of course, that only applies if you feel that downloading music from YouTube is stealing, but the moral dilemma is yours to weigh up. As an application, it’s incredibly crude and the UI really needs some work, and I’m not quite sure I’m comfortable with this being a paid app, but at lease there aren’t any ads that you’ll ever see. All-in-all, it works, it helps get music for free – so long as it’s on YouTube – and if you don’t mind downloading music for nothing, this will work okay for you.

Ratings

  • Speed (4/5) – The app runs well and files are downloaded nice and speedily, too.
  • Features (3/5) – Basically, this is an app that lets you download music from YouTube, and there are plenty of apps out there that offer the same feature.
  • Theme (3.5/5) – Everything is nice and straightforward here, but there’s very little in the way of good looks and things really could do with some work.
  • Overall (3.5/5) – If you want an app that downloads music from YouTube, then this is a decent option, it’s just rough around the edges.

Pros

  • Lots of music available at a simple search.
  • Quick downloads with no waiting in between.
  • Lots of different versions of songs for you to choose from.
  • Delivers on its promise, allows you to download free music essentially.

Cons

  • Needs you to pay before you can even download it, but there aren’t any ads.
  • UI needs some work.

Conclusion: Music Download Tube Pro is a decent option if you’re looking for a way to download free music, but sadly it doesn’t offer much – if anything – that you couldn’t get elsewhere. Also, there’s no information added to the MP3s, aside from the title, so you’ll soon end up with lots of random files. However, for a small fee, there’s no ads to use here and it’s really quite quick, so if this is all you need, then this will work fine.
