Verizon pushes YouTube app to BlackBerry Storm

Verizon pushes YouTube app to BlackBerry Storm
Owners of the BlackBerry Storm 9530 might find something surprising on their screen after the next reboot. Verizon has started to push a YouTube app to the device. For some Storm users, this is nothing new because the same app has been available as a download for months. Those who didn't download the player from Google were able to view videos using the YouTube mobile web site. While Verizon has sent out the icon just to Storm users for now, we would expect that other well endowed 'Berry models in Big Red's line-up, like the Tour-will get similar treatment shortly. Interestingly, other carriers like Vodafone had launched their version of the Storm with the YouTube app already on the display.

That's pretty cool. @ least lazy ppl can get this app w/out having to search the net. However, there IS a better app you can download from the BB App World.

Oh but "Waa" VZW charges Data "Waaa" VZW has Stupid phones "Waa" ...VZW doesnt let you have 3rd party apps "WAAAAAA"....You actually have to go download them "Waa".... Thats an example of TheMan crying himself to sleep, because he cries over stuff he doesnt know...Im sick of all you haters that only like your 39.99 no job havin plan. you a bunch of tit fed babies and have no right to even be in here. I do love Verizon I love the company and what they stand for. If you had any idea of anything you wouldnt be so biased just because Sprint calls you a VIP for being the cheapest loser that pays his bill on time for some Over rated plan and shotty coverage.

I actually have unlimited everything with Sprint, and I used to work for Verizon. I don't hate them because their service sucks, I hate them, because the company sucks. Verizon and Sprint have by far the best coverage, so I don't dog that at all. I dog the FACT that Verizon is so over-priced and as far as what your company stands for, who freakin' cares. We aren't looking for political views here homeboy, just calm down.

Nice try, we can't all stay where we are forever. I know you are content working for cell phone companies making $30,000 a year, but I got an education, beyond highschool, and could move on. But anyway have fun living with your mom oh and fyi I wasn't fired and the manager asked me to come back and work for VZW.

If I wanted you tube I would load it. I am sick and tired of Verizon and Blackberry pushing there marketing to our phones when I have no interest. I have my phone set up how I like it; now I have to deal with this icon. youtube facebook verizon tunes; stay off my phone. You don't even knock; its like throwing your advertizing in my home window because its open. Its time to look at other options.

DOTCOM32, You have to "deal with this icon"???? So by "deal" you mean "look at, occasionally"?? Oh dear, you have it so bad. I think there is a therapy session at 9:00AM to help you with this problem. LOL, GET OVER IT. Its an icon/program that you can delete. It takes all of 10 seconds out of your life.

Bold move there, Bowls in Motion...The screen resolution is the same as the iPhone and is nknown to be industry leading for both Storm and iPhone alike. The problem would be in the converting of the video my YouTube NOT by the screen. And it looks decent for a phone....Now the only difference, i believe, is that the iPhone runs the "real" youtube and not youtube "mobile", aain, I dont know for sure of iPhone specifics on that App...

now I understand; this is a social group of facebook and youtube types who use there phone for fun; my apology I clicked the wrong section. I was looking for the executive business section. Sorry. Have I got good news for you. I have some random icons that I will send to you daily; if you don't want them just take the time out of your day of fun and delete them, both on your phone and on your computer; it will only take 10 seconds; enjoy. Where is that unregister button

Maybe they can push an app to help you brush up on your grammar skills and can help you formulate correct sentences that express your thoughts. You couldn't find the executive business section because you have no business being there in the first place. Also, it takes the IQ of a 4th grade child to delete the 1 or 2 icons per 6 months that any carrier pushes to your phone. Stick with your T-Mobile sidekick since your job does not require a "big-kid" phone like a blackberry or windows mobile phone.
