Google Updates YouTube for iOS App, Adds iPad, AirPlay, iPhone 5 Support




Google has updated the YouTube for iOS app, adding native support for the iPad and the iPhone 5, as well as full support for streaming videos via AirPlay, reports The Next Web.

Quote:
Google's Horia Ciurdar says that more than 25 percent of all YouTube watching happens on mobile. Since the launch of the YouTube app back in September, Ciurdar says Google has "been hard at work to improve the app based on your feedback."

Now the YouTube app will get 'enhanced' AirPlay support, letting you shoot your videos over to your Apple TV. Videos are also said to start faster and play more smoothly. Google has also improved VoiceOver support for those with visual impairments.
During the iOS 6 Beta, Apple removed the native YouTube app that had been included on every iOS device since the platform was introduced. Once iOS 6 was publicly announced, Google released a native YouTube app for the iPhone.

YouTube for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

There was no reason for Apple not to include this in iOS 6. Apple has nothing that competes with this. The only reason I can think off it's that it's a 3rd party app, and Apple doesn't want to ship with 3rd party apps. Would it hurt Apple to ship with the most popular 3rd party apps like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter?

It's probably the same reason they don't ship their computers with all the garbage that comes on a Windows PC - if you really want it, you can go get it.

If that were the case, Macs would only ship with Safari and Finder, and iPhones would only ship with the stock Phone SMS and App Store.

I woudnt say that YouTube app is a garbage, if you remember. When Ipone criticised because it doesnt have a flash support. Jobs endorsed youtube and sad, youtube has 40% of video on the web, Actually YouTube done lots to iOS, how it become a garbage now?

Really? Well it didn't stop them from shipping this garbage with iOS 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Its simply that they hate google, plain and simple. They even shot themselves in the foot with their hillarious maps app.

Initially the native YouTube app wasn't garbage, but YouTube gained new features that weren't supported by the old app.. so there's a new app.

I'd rather install what I need than have to uninstall everything I don't. More preinstalled apps def never been on my wish list. Ever. Unless its something feature wise (Passbook for example).

On a side note, I wish Apple would let us uninstall apps that they include but I have no interest in using, Newstand, for instance. You can't even move it to a folder and hide the thing.

Newstand is not too bad. I mean there are free mags so its not a totally pointless even if you dont want to buy anything, however Apps like Compass?! Why do we need that by default?

Apple doesn't include apps that are not theirs, and even then not all of them. Why would they include apps that are from third parties by default? You can easily install whichever ones you want as soon as you want.

So if you have an iPad 1 on iOS 5 and install this app and click a link will it send you to the new app or the old Apple YouTube app?
