    Hey peeps, new subscriber here.

    I was just messing about on the YouTube app with the iPad/keyboard combo and decided to post about something that has been bothering me for a while now. The problem is that you don't seem to have the same keyboard controls that you would have access to whilst using the browser version on a desktop or laptop. For instance, on the desktop I can use the directional keys for skipping forward/backwards through the video. You also have quick access to the volume by pressing up/down on the direction keys etc.

    Now, I'm no developer so I'm curious as to why the Apple keyboard doesn't also have this functionality. Is it some limitation of the hardware? Or is it something to do with the app itself?

    Thanks in advance.

    The programmer of the App has to include this functionality, and it seems the YouTube app doesn't have it.
