A stock YouTube application had been included on iOS devices since the launch of the original iPhone in 2007, but with the debut of iOS 6 last year that application was discontinued. Google rolled out its own native YouTube app for iOS last September just ahead of the iOS 6 launch and has updated it several times since that debut.

YouTube is a universal app and can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I'd like to see top comments and be able to reply to comments, how difficult is that!
I already didn't like that "what to watch" is the first thing I see when I go to YouTube, now they added it to the YouTube app too :( I think "My subscription" is more important here.

Still wont touch it till it stops automatically giving me eye cancer because I'm on a 3G network. Instead of giving the choice to stream in HQ.


Try Jasmine. It's good, and way better with matching your quality to your speed.

So still no backgrounding or ability to turn HQ off?

Not all of us are on super speeds and can just hit play and the HQ video just goes. need to pause and let a buffer build and backgrounding would be nice

I love it when an app that I use a lot recieves an update.

I wish the launch page of the YouTube app was my subscriptions instead of "what to watch". I'm more interested in watching new videos by my subscribers before browsing the rest of YouTube.

They have it that way on the desktop site and it annoys me a lot.

No big deal though, can live with it :)

Really want to try the feature of TV video queuing. But I haven't tested if it works well.
