YouTube for Android gets update
Google has updated its YouTube for Android app adding some new features including the usual bug fixes and stability improvements, a system that recommends videos to you, and more features for the sliding drawer. You can now open up the side panel from anywhere in the app to gain access to your subscriptions and feeds and the drawer also includes some new animations.

The most interesting part of the update is the new feature that makes recommendations to users. These videos are marked with the words, "Recommended for you".  You can get started with the new update by heading over to the Google Play Store. If you're already installed YouTube, the update will be waiting for you. If you don't have the app on your phone, what are you waiting for? Pick it up for free from the Google Play Store now.

Still rocking the ole 4.1.x version. I like the layout, 3D Carousel, and black backgrounds much better than the Card UI of recent versions. The Card UI looks great in Now, G+, and Currents, but not so much IMO for YouTube or the Playstore.

I wish they could make your youtube video resume automatically if you have to go back to your home screen or into another app without having to start the entire video all over.

I wish I can remove the "Recomended for You" part of YouTube because it will start recommending some crazy innappropriate videos after I "accidentally" find myself in the weird part of YouTube

A big, news worthy update from them will be capabilities for playing back 1080p video
