    Curious how many of you here use the YouTube app. I don’t use it at all so I removed it from my phone (by “remove”, I mean, I went into ‘settings’/’restrictions’ and turned it “off” so it won’t show up as an icon).

    use it all the time, when I cant sleep I watch top gear videos on it. I would like it to act more like the real youtube, you know see my subscriptions etc. but hey I cant complain, its kept me occupied quite a bit.

    Used it occasionally when I want to play a song I don't have (I buy all my songs from iTunes, so it limits me). I also use it when I get bored of my small collection of music.

    Agreed.
    I uses it all the time for comedy stand up videos, etc.

    I use it more than I thought I would. Partly for kid use, partly for mine.

    1) When my six-year-old daughter wants to see other kids perform a song she heard at school.

    2) Ditto with daughter for Disney film clips to keep her occupied.

    3) When I want to see a clip or review of some new tech gear.

    4) Looking for videos of someplace we're about to travel.

    Yes, often.
    Mostly for music videos that I aren't on my iPod because of the low amount of space.

    I sometimes use it to show Mac vs PC rant videos to my computer teacher.
    I would just show him on the computer but my schools' server blocks YouTube.

    I use it here and there. Usually my friends and family use it the most.
    It works just fine, but it's just a tad slow streaming a video, even with WiFi on.

    I think I've used it once.
    It's still slow to load over 3G and whenever I'm on WIFI I'm usually at home where I can just watch it on my mac.

    I'm on an iPod touch, so most of the times that I could use that app I am at a spot where I could just as easily take out my computer and go to YouTube on that. So I very rarely use it, except for those few times that I have my iPod touch, don't have my computer, and am somewhere that has good wifi speeds (not school or the train). I suppose that I might use it more if I had an iPhone.

    About once every week or so. Iam normally on a computer 10 hours a day so I get my fill of youtube from that.

    Use Mxtube instead :) but use it occasionally. Im not one to just browse videos with nothing in mind, but if I am looking for something, I'll use it.
