YouTube release its own App Store app

September 11, 2012
Just a month after Apple pulled out YouTube from iOS 6; YouTube promised that they will release an App Store app soon when in the mean time users can stick to the YouTube web app. The app got released surprisingly quicker than expected. What I was expecting was for the app to be released when iOS 6 is made official which will possibly happen in the 18th of June.

The app looks new and fresh with some exciting new features iOS users haven't been able to experience. These are the release notes from YouTube's blog:
Tens of thousands more videos: Watch official music videos like Taylor’s latest hit.
New YouTube channel guide: Swipe your finger from the left edge of the screen to reveal a guide with your subscribed channels on YouTube, giving you instant access to everything from Alli Sports to YOMYOMF.
Find awesome videos faster: Get to videos like “Gangnam Style” faster with new search tools that give suggestions while you type, and let you sort through videos or channels. Flip through related videos, comments and more info, all while watching a video.
More ways to share with the people you love: Share that incredible video you found on YouTube on Google+, Facebook or text message in the app, as well as from Twitter and email.
There’s even more to explore with the new YouTube app for iPhone and iPod touch, available for download from the App Store today. We’re working on an optimized version of the YouTube app for iPad in the coming months, and stay tuned for more details.

YouTube is available for iPhone 3GS,4 and 4S. You can get it from here.

The app seems to be really great. Perhaps after all it is better that Apple are pulling their YouTube app out! Don't you think so?
