What makes Softorino YouTube Converter different from the competition? 

We might show off a bit here: Softorino YouTube Converter is the first world application able to push video to iOS device directly without any other software involved. Before SYC, the only way to download YouTube clips for offline viewing on iOS was to download them to your desktop and then use iTunes sync to transfer it to iPhone or iPad. The drawback: way too looong.
Or you could use some apps from the App Store directly on iOS device. But this option isn't available anymore, because all such apps were taken down and stopped working. 

So, for the time being, Softorino YouTube Converter stays the only desktop app to save videos to iPhone without help of any other software. So this is what makes it different. (if we don't count bunch of other useful features, other apps lack)

Is this application a paid one? 

Yes. It is – we charge money for Softorino YouTube Converter to make it even better then it is. The price: $19, 90.
But there is a free trial though, that lasts 14 days.
