YouTube for Android 2.2 gets an update, becomes standalone app
With this new version, you can watch videos in portrait mode as well as landscape, like, comment, view comments while watching video, view channel information, and share videos on your favorite social networks. There's also a personalized home screen video feed and a revamped UI with new playback controls.
That's certainly a long list of welcome additions. So what's the caveat, you ask? Well, you'll only find this new version in the Android Market if you're on Android 2.2, and that's a shame. Thanks to phone manufacturers not caring about software support all that much, many people are still stuck on earlier versions.
If you are on 2.2, you can get the new YouTube by searching for it in the Android Market on your phone, or you can download it from AppBrain.
