Google Releases Revamped YouTube App with the iPhone 5

As reported by Chloe Albanesius of PCMag, Google has decided to release a revamped version of the YouTube App, just before tomorrow’s premier of the new iPhone 5.  The current YouTube App came standard on all previous iPhones, but Google and Apple decided not to renew their deal for iOS 6, prompting Google to create a YouTube app for the App Store. In addition, Apple will use its own mapping app as opposed to the Google Maps app that came with all previous iPhones.

Some new features of the Youtube app include access to tens of thousands of more videos, Google’s suggested search results, a swipeable channel guide to view subscriptions.” In addition, users will now be able to share videos via text, Facebook, and Google+. Currently, sharing is only available through email and Twitter. Google is currently working on a YouTube app for the iPad, which should be available in the next few months.
