Google announces TrueView mobile ads in YouTube, iOS coming soon
posted by Michael H. / Aug 22, 2012, 2:29 PM
The ads will be running on Android devices, and the mobile YouTube website right away, and we can safely assume that they will be a part of the iOS YouTube app that is released into the iTunes App Store after iOS 6 is launched in the next month. Overall, it's looking like a win for Apple for getting Google out of iOS, a win for users in getting a more up-to-date iOS YouTube app, and a win for Google with better advertising. That's a win-win-win - a pretty rare feat.

dont actually mind ads this way..have already experienced this trueview ads on my nexus 7 and does not appear on all videos and usually the ads that are shown i usually watch it as it is tech related which is the content i read and watch and finally it also lets you skip the ad which is great..you cant expect things to be free without advertising.
