40% of You Tube views now come from a mobile device

Back in 2007, Apple put a YouTube client on the iPhone and created a memorable site; now comes word from Google that 40% of the traffic coming to YouTube to view streaming videos, is viewing the video from a mobile device. That is up from last year's 25% that viewed You Tube videos on a mobile device. In 2011, that figure was only 6%.

I watch Youtube on the phone sometimes, but the Desktop is still the best experience. I am actually not much of a fan of the Youtube app, if not for the App's general loading speed being better I would use the mobile site instead.
