Hyper app – YouTube for Windows 8
Since beginning my Windows 8 journey just a month or so ago, I have run into a few app that I just can’t live without in the Windows 8 world. One of those apps is “Hyper“. It’s a 3rd party youtube app that is made for the Windows 8 metro experience.
One of it’s key features is that you can pin your favorite subscriptions to it’s home screen. This lets me see the latest episodes of a few of the podcasts/vlogs that I follow daily, right when the app starts up. When subscribed to 180+ youtube channels like me, this is a huge help in finding the channels I want to see the most. Another key feature is uninterrupted background playback. This means if you switch to check your email or whatever, it still plays the audio in the background. This also works great for listening to music on youtube in the background when doing something else. The app has a really clean design and is built from the ground up for touch.
This app is free with minimal ads and available in the windows app store.
Just search for “hyper” or find more info here.
