    LibreTube is NewPipe but looks better and is an overall smoother experience in my opinion.

    Pros:

    *Material You *Faster *SponsorBlock built in to main app *Subscriptions refresh automatically

    Cons:

    • An account must be created to subscribe to channels, but fortunately, you only need to create a username and password, no email or phone number or anything
    • No auto-rotate
