Google Launches Native YouTube App for iPhone
As promised, Google has introduced a native YouTube app for iPhone. We had previously reported that Apple will be removing the dedicated YouTube app from iOS 6 which is due to be released in the near future. At the time, Google promised that a native iOS app was in the works. YouTube had previously been one of the built-in iOS apps since the original iPhone launch.
The app just appeared in the App Store as a free download:
The YouTube blog outlines some of the new features:
In order to provide mobile users with the "tens of thousands" of new videos, the app now supports display of ads with videos. Previously, these videos were unavailable on iOS due to the previous lack of support for ads.

Very nice, indeed! I was skeptical at first but am now extremely happy that development is in the hands of Google. And we can share directly via SMS now!
Steven Jobs was nothing less than brilliant. His vision to change the world was genuinely inspiring.

That is awesome!
This is the brilliance of modulated apps, Apple did the right thing removing the native app, let Google manage it and let it be independent of the OS, more apps should be like that(Newsstand for example)
This app is MUCH better than the Apple's YouTube app...
I like the UI.
I really like how you can play videos in portrait straight from the page, like you can in the Android app, I wish it had a scrubbing feature though when seeking video.
Also you can finally copy video link to clipboard. Without having to use the "send email" workaround.
Hopefully they release standalone Google Maps soon too.

I just downloaded it... and it's amazing! fast, sleek, and very polished.
I can't wait for google to release their own Maps App, just for the sake of everyone shutting up.
