YouTube for Windows Phone gets updated to be a real app

0. phoneArena 07 May 2013, 13:46 posted on

One of the biggest complaints from Windows Phone users has been the extremely poor quality of the built-in YouTube app. There have been other options in the Windows Phone Store, but nothing that really offered everything that could have been from an app officially authorized by Google. Well, the stock YouTube app for WP got a huge update today that finally makes it a real app...

He's right actually. iOS, BB, and Symbian are all losing global market share. Android can't grow that fast because it already has the majority of the market. WP has been the fastest growing platform in the world since WP8 launched.

Unfortunately, despite all promises from micro$oft, not available for WP7.x... as usual. We're still on version 1.0.0.0. The WP7.x platform has already been forgotten. We labrats for M$ got screwed! Think twice before giving your money to such shameless people!

It's all about the money... that's the way microSoft is doing business... I was trying to make a point there, mate. They simply shouldn't have used lots of people as labrats selling "high-end" devices like the Lumia 900 if development for that platform was knowingly going to end three months later!
So as for me: they can go to hell!

It is awesome, better than MetroTube....

The only thing i need is the option to enable or disable the live tile and the ability to change the backgroundcolor to black, overall i love the app, thank you so much Microsoft !!

Love my Lumia 920 Cyan.

WHAT THE HECK ABOUT FOR WINDOWS PHONE 7 OR 7.5?!!!!

Currently, the Version for Windows Phone 7 or 7.5 is Version 1.0.0.0, < 1MB and there is NO OPTION TO UPGRADE!!!!

Instead of POSTING MISLEADING INFO ABOUT AN UPGRADE< POST THAT IT IS ONLY FOR WINDOWS PHONE 8 ONLY!!!

Why do We have to be left behind?!!!

WP 7.5 has been left behind on so many useful apps, it's not even funny. Despite all these great apps coming out for WP8 left and right, I don't even bother to check the store on my 7.5 phone anymore. I'm resigned to just not caring until I can upgrade to a WP8 phone.
