YouTube is a go-to website for any kind of videos, funny or sad, athletic or relaxing. Most of the times, you are probably connected to the Internet and can watch any YouTube video at a decent speed. But what about the times you don’t have a reliable connection, or your favorite video gets removed from the web? These are the situations that may send you in the search of a perfect YouTube music downloader in MP3 format.

We leave it to you to decide whether or not to download, but don’t want to leave you without options. Here are the top MP3 YouTube downloader apps that do a good job and might be interesting for you.
