Google updates YouTube for iOS; app more closely resembles Android version20
YouTube was no longer a stock iOS app with iOS 6 Beta 4, and those who wanted to continue to view YouTube were forced to download the app from the Apple App Store. No big deal really. In fact, the move helped Google's finances tremendously. Today, the YouTube app for iOS received an update that adds a "material design" look, similar to Google's recent Google Maps offering for the Apple faithful.
The update splits the app into three sections. Subscriptions is a list of new YouTube videos from accounts that you subscribe to. Home suggests videos for you to see, and lists videos that you recently viewed, and Account shows your viewing history, the watch later feature, and shows off your playlists. There are also some new gesture controls introduced, for navigating between sections and menus. The update also includes new in-app editing tools for those who upload their videos to the site.
YouTube for iOS is a free download from the Apple App Store. Weighing in at 40.7MB, it's more than worth its weight in entertainment!
