There are some instances where the physical buttons can be hard to access. Hence why even Apple has chosen to retain the slider.

Apparently if you use the default video player you can do it, because jasmine does it. I might just use jasmine from now on. A few things I don't like about it, but at least the features are there.

McTube lets me save the audio portion of videos as MP3s. I'll stick with that one.

I liked this part best:

‘enhanced’ AirPlay support
IOW, you can now stream video and audio, like, uh, every other app that supports AirPlay. With Google, a bug fix gets promoted to a "feature"...

It's about time. Leave to google to make IOS usable again. Now we have to wait for a usable mapping system.

Nevermind. No HD/SD switching. No background audio. The usual Googleplex half-measures.

Youtube and Maps were NOT third Party Apps. They were Apple Apps written in collaboration with Google.

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.

The old YouTube app was built and maintained by Apple. Exactly how long SHOULD they build things for their competitors? Your assertion is ridiculous.

You could always just use Android if you really find iOS "unusable." Clearly you'd be happier over there in that ecosystem, and we'd be better off as well without these ridiculous complaints.

Playstation sync

Still no Playstation video sync through this app or background audio play!?! Hope it comes in an future update. Looks like I will stick with the web app for Playstation sync and McTube for background audio play.

I hate to be "that guy", but I for one am glad they don't ship with the "most popular 3rd party apps." I rarely use Youtube and never use Twitter.

Installed the new YouTube app on my iPod touch 5 and it's terrific. No lag, no stutter, and while I think the external speaker on the touch leaves a lot to be desired, my little iHome speakers take care of that problem.

It's a keeper. Heck, if it weren't for the map thing, I'd seriously consider moving my iPad 2 to iOS 6.

It might have never been part of the deal for YouTube to be in iOS beyond 5. Could have been part of the deal since Apple wouldn't allow ads. Now that its an optional download from Google they can include them, and provided that they play by the rules they can have access to location etc info that they want (if we are willing to give it).

Have you tried this before?

I deleted this app from my iPhone 5 a long time ago and replaced it by adding the website to my home screen and:

- I never lost Airplay since IOS 6
- I always had full screen videos on the iPhone 5
- I can choose to play videos at a lower and faster quality rather than waiting 5 min for them to load loosing interest when the reception is not optimal.

Try yourself people:
In Safari go to www.youtube.com. Once there click on the Safari Option menu at the center bottom of the phone (right above the home button) and click on "Add to Home Screen".

It creates an app that is more functional than the one they just released.

I hope this helps your user experience.

You just said it. Apple Maps doesn't suck too bad, but for some people it might be enough to keep them away from iOS.

Google and Apple should kiss and make up and integrate street view AND flyover.

First Decent Thing Youtube has Done in Years

Today I got an email from youtube on all the crappy "improvements" they're making to youtube and it makes me sick. The apps are very solid though, and this is a real improvement.
