Mobile App of the Day: YouTube for Android

YouTube now a separate app instead of OS integrated

Our Mobile App of the Day today is YouTube for Android.


The folks at Google and Android have made a pretty significant change when it comes to the mobile YouTube experience. Most people with Android phones got a pre-installed YouTube app that only updates when the OS does. Google and YouTube agreed with most of you that think that stinks, and have now released a standalone app.




For those with Android 2.2, you'll notice YouTube is now gone from the root OS and is a separate app. This allows the app to be updated separately, and the first iteration has given some significant updates. Search is smoother, vids can be viewed in portrait of landscape mode, social integration with Facebook, Twitter, and Buzz are improved, and video can be shot and uploaded within the app itself. IF the update hasn't already been done automatically to your phone, search the Android Market for YouTube or use the QR code after the break.
