The good, the great, the awesome in SYC 2

Softorino YouTube Converter 2 is basically an “all-in-one”4K YouTube downloader that easily saves YouTube videos in hi-res quality to your computer or even Apple device.

This is not only YouTube 4K downloader for Mac – it works for Windows just as seamlessly.

  • Download videos, music, ringtones to any iPhone, iPad, iPod ever created (+ legacy iPods)

  • Quickly download 4K YouTube videos to your HDD

  • Support of more than 50 popular websites

  • Turn any YouTube audio into iPhone ringtone 🙂

Of course, there are loads of different applications and browser extensions in this niche. They all can help you download YouTube content.

And many people use this software on a regular basis. The main reason – these programs are free to use. But except being free, they lag and are filled with all kinds of ads you can imagine.

Additionally, if we mention 4K video download or even saving videos in 1080p to your iPhone, there are no apps that could handle this. If you’d like to save a video to your iOS device, initially, you’d have to download the file to your computer.

Then you are to sync your device with iTunes. Sounds like it’s a long and time-consuming process. And it truly is.

I bet you don’t want to install tons of suspicious software, and then spend hours near the keyboard dealing with iTunes.

Well, all you need is a gem-kind tool, that works on Mac and Windows.

To Sum Up

YouTube is the storage of stunning, fascinating footage. Whatever your preferences are – you will always find something of interest there. But you won’t always have the chance to watch it. When there is no Internet connection, or if your Wi-Fi signal is a wonky one, it gets pretty complicated.

Especially if you belong to that high ‘cast’ of people, who prefer watching videos in brilliant quality.

If so, below we will describe the way to download YouTube videos in 1080/2160p with our just-released YouTube 4K downloader.

In conclusion, Softorino YouTube Converter 2 is the perfect tool if you need to quickly download 4K YouTube videos to your iPhone and keep going. It does everything on its own. That means you won’t need to install or use any additional apps.

It can fully substitute YouTube Red – paid subscription launched by YouTube. With this 4K video downloader, you can get rid of all ads, glitching once and for all.

And there’s no need even to touch iTunes! Yes, this is now real. I bet this overloaded app often irritated you (because it doesn’t accept all media formats), and drove you mad since it works very slowly. Softorino YouTube Converter 2 is completely different.

P.S.

Additionally, this 4K video downloader is totally universal. It works with any iPhone, iPod, and iPad equally well. Right now it’s available for both Mac & Windows. What’s more, it supports more than 50 popular sources altogether.

Finally, our application can extract sound from YouTube videos. SYC 2 is able to get the audio from any YouTube movie and save it as a separate audio file. Furthermore, you will be able to listen to it from your native Music.app.

Take all your favorite music with you!
