What the hell have you done.
by T- Ryner on 2017/03/25 17:20
I have enjoyed videos on this platform for years, and now I can't. The amount of adds on each video is insane, and YouTube red is extremely overpriced. Can I just enjoy and support the people I'm subscribed to? Or is that too much to ask. I have seen you go from occasionally 5-10 second adds to constant, repetitive, un skippable 1 minute adds. If I made a review a year ago, you would get 5 stars. Now, it's taking everything I have to not give you one. Drop the price of YouTube red, and have people pay monthly. You're either draining our wallets dry, or you're driving us off. Seriously. What the hell have you done.
PLEASE FIX THIS BUG MY LIFE IS NOT COMPLETE NOW

Still experiencing issues
by Coalfriend on 2017/03/25 16:38
Never fails that the app freezes or crashes when streaming to another device (like a smart tv). Tried numerous devices and the problem is the app, no doubt. Had been an issue through all versions of app. Great job YouTube, give yourselves a pat on the back 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
Adds adds adds adds adds
by Richardmadden👌🏽 on 2017/03/25 16:03
I can't watch just one video without a flipping add. Every video I play there is adds just people purchase YouTube red it's annoying as all can get just chill on the adds
Awesome vids
by Klonoa1211 on 2017/03/25 16:01
This is so cool, usually on the tv you have to wait for your favorite shows to come on. But here you can watch them anytime you like and more!!😄 You don't get quality entertainment like this any where else!😃
30 second ads
by 🍌🍔🌮🍣 on 2017/03/25 15:56
Every time I watch a video there's a 30 second ad before every video and it's so annoying😑 I hope this will be fixed soon because it's getting really irritating😩
No problem

Why is this Buggy?
by Phd.Falcon on 2017/03/25 15:34
Just today when attempting to watch a video something strange happened. The video would either get A).Stuck on an ad, or B). The video would glitch and would only play about 10second chunks of the video. Only today am i experiencing this problem. Please fix this bug, i have been seeing a lot of people report this.
Also.

STOP UPDATING FOR 3 SECONDS PLEASE IT MAKES IT WORSE EVERY TIME
The dumbest thing about this app 😡
by Lleyton26 on 2017/03/25 15:04
I'm starting to get really mad, why can't you change the name of your channel any time you want?! It's just dumb!! You can only change the name 3 times every 3 months?! That's just crap!!!! FIX IT NOW!!!! 😡😡
Still Bad
by DiscoBrisco on 2017/03/25 14:56
I can't even watch a full video because of the constant crashes.
Thanks
by Yoman45080 on 2017/03/25 14:34
After many years all of my subscriptions have been deleted for no reason. The next and previous buttons are also very large and are too easy to accidentally press during a video.
Haven't been able to watch videos for a week!
by Dantoro1 on 2017/03/25 14:24
It keeps saying "there was an error loading the video, tap to try again". Not ONE video I've tried to watch in the last week has even started let alone finished.
Speed setting
by TERMINATOR._.HK on 2017/03/25 14:18
It's a excellent app but I like to listen to music at certain speeds like the PC version. Can you add the video speed option to YouTube for mobile. If you do I will download every single YouTube app there is and rate 5 stars. Please add a speed option like the PC version of YouTube.

Annoying invisible bottom
by P2PParker on 2017/03/25 14:10
The 10 seconds bottom is too annoying! I keep pressing it every time I try to press the full screen bottom. You can either put a visible option or remove the 10 second thing!
Can't Log In
by Izzy123435 on 2017/03/25 13:44
I like this app, but a few months ago it and any other app that was signed into my google account logged me out on my iPad Mini and I haven't been able to log back in since. This is really frustrating, and I can't do anything on many of my apps now. It said something about there being a problem with the company and that it may have logged people out accidentally but it hasn't been fixed.
GARBAGE APP!! 💩💩💩
by deano22 on 2017/03/25 12:50
Google you truly need to fire your whole software development team. This app is absolutely terrible. It is beyond buggy and all it does is constantly buffer...I HATE THE ALL RED TOP BAR, SUPER UGLY!! Not to mention u can never scrub through a video. Plus we all have iOS 10 so why won't u give the iPad Pro 9.7 picture and picture and background multitasking ????
Doesn't load
by Alec577 on 2017/03/25 12:29
Comments and recommended videos load, but the video takes over 1 minute to load and then says that it is unavailible. Fix your sh*t google cause this isn't the first tome it happens!

YouTube censoring conservative videos!
by OrlandoTommy on 2017/03/25 06:49
Enough is enough YouTube !
Great App
by JCHudsonSoCal on 2017/03/25 06:45
Decent app, but I would really like to be able to adjust font size, as I am near-sighted. I have downgraded my review of this app given that I have contacted YouTube regarding accessibility several times, and I haven't heard anything from them. Evidently they couldn't care less about the visually impaired, since no progress has been made on this issue. I appreciate the other changes made to the app, but accessibility is paramount.
Still waiting for PIP...Any ETA?
by goglymogly on 2017/03/25 06:45
The app works almost flawlessly, however it's missing a very important feature which allows iPad Pro users multitask. Please add picture-in-picture so we can stop using alternative apps for YouTube.
Awesome

by Raggmopp42 on 2017/03/25 04:29
Help! What is wrong. The app says it is updating, but it doesn't or says it can't at this time. I haven't been able to use it this month and it is the 24th! Please fix!

Video issue
by Ama sing on 2017/03/25 03:24
Hello, there's something wrong with YouTube because every time I try to click on any video, it says," Something went wrong with the video tap to retry" and when I tap it, it says the same thing. This is on every video. It would really help if you fixed this. I promise I'll change this review to 5 star if you please fix this. I can't even watch the videos, I tried everything. I'm sorry for bad review but it's the truth. Sincerely, E.G.

Ever since this new update my YouTube will not work it just says there has been a problem or something like that and it is annoying it makes it so I can only watch YouTube on my PS4
Stop censoring content
by JaytotheC on 2017/03/25 00:12
Youtube will now begin censoring content under guise of parental controls. Hopefully a youtube replacement will surface soon, one that will simply be a neutral platform for genuine content made by authentic content creators. Twitter first.. and now Youtube are quickly becoming worthless echo-chambers of unwatchable predictable drivel. This move is designed pick up the pace of censorship. Unfortunately this is not a surprise to anyone paying attention. Sad
Thumbnails
by Kitty123345 on 2017/03/25 00:01
This is a very good app but I would like it if you added thumbnails that you can choose a thumbnail or upload one.
I LOVE IT, but
by Antaresfire on 2017/03/24 23:50
Don't get me wrong I love YouTube!! I love watching all the YOUTUBERS like aphmau, ldshawdowlady, and so on. I enjoy seeing cool, funny, interesting videos, but there are some glitches though. When I have it to a small screen, it was make it big and I can't click the button to make it small, I'll have to leave then come back. It can kinda slow too. But over all the glitches I love to go on YouTube, and I go on every single day 😜🤓 some of the updates are pretty cool too! I can't wait to see how YouTube will be in the future. With cooler updates and stuff like that. Thank you 🤗
GIVE IOS6 Youtube back!!!!!

Crappy app for truth news
by Libtard hunter on 2017/03/24 23:23
Every time I start watching a conservative news channel I get cut off they would rather you watch liberal crap and the communist agenda that these mainstream media wants you to see them the truth. I know how to think for myself and I don't believe anything MSM has to say.
Great for Red Users
by Tatathomas on 2017/03/24 23:18
I have YouTube Red which is ad/commercial free. It makes the app flawless. It's $10 a month and it includes Google Play Music. It's worth every penny.
Please put it back the way it was at least with the player.
by Weatheronthe8s on 2017/03/24 23:11
I personally think the new video player is worse than the old one. It takes like a whole second to come up now and I don't like how the settings are on a drop down menu instead of a fade effect now. I personally don't care for the new layout either, I think I should've never updated.
Pretty poorly thought out
by Dk21291 on 2017/03/24 22:58
Queue is poorly thought out. Not easy to go back like when browsing on the web. Overall not great to use. If I could link to my PS3 from the mobile site in safari I'd trash this terrible app.

No sound??
by PuppyPrincess:3 on 2017/03/24 22:14
I've had this problem for a day now and my ads have sound and it seems as everything is going fine and then when I get to the video there's no sound or there's this faint pulsing sound that won't go away unless you close the app. I'd like to watch my videos and give the youtubers the feedback they deserve but kinda hard when I can't watch the video :p
May be a problem solver
by Dax17384 on 2017/03/24 22:12
I tried restarting the device I'm watching on and it worked so far so if your having trouble try and restart

New Update = No Bueno
by thegreatphotographer on 2017/03/24 19:30
Edit: 3/24/17 - The newest update now doesn't allow the user to refresh the page when actually on a video. (You can no longer pull down to refresh under a video say; to refresh the view count / likes&dislikes) This is really annoying and probably a bug but either way: YOUTUBE FIX IT PLEASE!! 2/11/17 - The new update is absolutely horrible. For starters, now every time that I would like so scrub along the video, the video skips ahead or backwards 10 seconds. This new skip feature is also very annoying when I'm wanting to exit full screen because all it does is skip forward and then I'm able to skip the screen. Finally, the new update REMOVED SOMETHING that I believe everyone should be able to see and that is the view count. I can understand keeping the likes and dislikes rounded to a number but for views, that is completely unnecessary. It bugs me that I can't see how many views my favorite creators have pulled in for their new videos. Please change this back to the original where you could see all the views.
It won't let me sigh in or create a account!!
by Threat191 on 2017/03/24 19:17
I will click create account and it will say error and same for if i sigh in with my old account
Everything Wrong With The YouTube App
by Jazzy's thoughts on 2017/03/24 19:10
I've been a consistent YouTube app watcher for over many years, and I've seen the many modifications made to the app. Some glitches fixed, other bugs not. Right now the biggest issue is when I full screen a video, the app will glitch and not let me exit out of full screen. I have to close the app completely, delete it from my history and reopen it in order to fix it. This happens to me daily which is a huge inconvenience. Another issue is my subscription box. I'm subscribed to less than 30 youtubers and only a select few show up in my subscription box. This is quite annoying, because I have to scroll through the side bar with all of my subscriptions and find the youtuber. This layout is another annoying thing because if you misclick a bubble, it takes forever to get back to looking for who I was originally scrolling for. I honesty think that's just a bad layout for the subscriptions.

Bad update
by Johnjohn5678 on 2017/03/24 16:57
Youtube used to look allot better before the new update. The new update has a bad look. It has a thin red bar and the rest is all white. The old app use to have a perfect balance of red looked allot smoother than the current update. Please bring back the red color in the next update.

YouTube overall used to be awesome. Great for a quick song lookup, funny videos. But now you can't do anything without being stuck watching some stupid commercial. Their way of trying to force someone into buying into their YouTube Red.

Poorly designed
by Taiga rocks on 2017/03/24 14:19
Rules are inconsistent, ban anything controversial, and the AI ban people on accident constantly. YouTube became big because of freedom and ease of use. Neither of which are still present to this day.
Yes,YouTube runs well at iPad1.

I don't know why people are saying that it keeps on crashing... It works on my iPad PERFECTLY! I think you guys just need to update your mobile device.... I updated my iPad to the latest version of iOS not to long ago, and since then I've had ABSOLUTELY NO trouble at all!!! Anyways, the updates is just wonderful! I love the new feature where you can search for videos and watching another video. And I noticed that you can FINALLY play playlists!!! Yay!! I made a private playlist for all my favorite songs so it's nice to not have to click EVERY time I have to switch it to the next song. But I also noticed you guys still haven't added a feature where you can edit your channel on your mobile device or check your inbox. I know you can just go to Safari or the web to check your inbox but it would be a WHOLE lot faster if it was just on the app. And I found out you CAN edit your channel on your mobile device. I guess I've never noticed (or was it there before?) there's a button where it says: "Switch to desktop" (I think??) and it turns into the layout you would have if you were on your PC which is so cool! THANKS GUYS! Overall, I just adore this new update! There's so improvements to be made but I understand you guys are trying your hardest! Thanks again, don't listen to the bad reviews, and I look forward to new updates!!!
Crashing and commenting problems!!
by edleat puffle on 2013/08/19 04:08
Crashes once and a while! And when I comment after 2 comments I comment another one it SAYS ERROR TO LOAD MESSAGE!!!!! I EVEN REBOOT THE APP and the same thing happens!!!! Please fix the comment problem not being able to post more than 2-3 comments!!!! And the same thing kinda happens on the computer version but I usually have to type the word shown up top and it will post the comment! But the app version it has a error!!!!!!! And fix the video quality! Many times the video will get blurry after a while and it takes me 2-3 times turning my I pod to sleep mode and going back to the app and then it usually clears up... And I want to be able to see the subscribers that subscribe your channel if you had one cause I have a channel and I go to uploads but it doesn't go to my main channel page I have to search up my name click on one of my video and click on my name to see the main channel! If I click uploads it shows a list of all of the videos you uploaded! If you don't know what I mean then... I tell you... It doesn't show my channel art when I click uploads and I have to search up my name and click in my name to see the main channel page where I can see my profile picture and channel art...I want to be able to see who subscribed my channel from my I pod and to be able to like videos! I know I'm typing a lot in this review but this is all I have to say so can you please fix the problems! Thanks!
Needs to fix video category for channels!!
by Urmomsbitch on 2016/02/04 06:30
I love the app, and i love all of the channels I am subscribed to and there content. However, when I go to a youtubers channel to see their list of videos on my ios it is just a blank screen. Sometimes I do not have time to watch all the videos in my sub box so later I would go to the individuals channel and look at their most recent videos to enjoy them. But just recently, for ios, it wont load, it doesnt say it cant load it is just blank, so i go to the channels home page, but not always are their most recent videos up in there. And if you still are unaware of the slight but bothering problem, when you click on a channel of anyone it loads everything just fine except the category that says VIDEOS. There are five categories on the ios the first being home, then videos, playlists, channels, then about. The videos category shows the most recent videos, but wont load. Have to go to the home everytime to watch the newest video. And it wouldnt be a problem except it sometimes only has the some of the new videos. But for the most part if i cant find it in my sub box then i can find the newest video from 6 months ago on the individuals channel. Thank you for reading, and please I would love for this to get fixed soon, and im glad that the playlist deletion glick that doesnt get deleted got fixed.
Still has the quality-killing glitch. Otherwise, good.
by Ghostkid825 on 2013/08/23 06:22
I'm personally half-and-half on the newest update. I enjoy the multitasking, and how you can physically interact with the video. I'm not a particular fan of the new aesthetics (the new icon and addition of more white and a bit of red in-app), but that's more of a minor complaint. It also seems like a strange move to remove the Back button from the video viewing page, but I guess the people complaining about that somehow missed the short start-up tutorial about the new and simple way to leave a video page. What bugs me is that the problem with blurry videos is STILL not fixed. It seems to happen at random, and it's generally persistent once it starts for a particular video, no matter how many times you refresh it. (For those unaware, the video quality drops to something worse than 240p, and the frame rate drops to about 5-10 fps.) This is the only actual issue I can find with the app that REALLY needs to be fixed/updated. (However, adding in the ability to reply to comments is a good idea, as suggested by another review. If you have to choose between the two, though, PLEASE focus on fixing the quality glitch.) If this glitch actually gets fixed once and for all, you'll have a 5-star app.
SO SLOW AND RAGE INDUCING
by Tysonyoshi on 2012/10/23 01:25
The old one is much more better. This one does nothing but buffering 24/7 making me take an hour just to watch a five minute video. You actually consider this a product when it barley works?! Considering my homes internet connection already isn't the most fast this app video download speed is often slow bull and I (and other people) "general errors". Based off the look of this I don't have a feeling this won't be fixed for a long while. Another problem is that if you close the app (like remove it from the active apps) the video you were watching goes into your history and you have to watch it all over again unlike the old apps where it just keeps going if you do that. This needs a direct link to the main menu to get back to the front page since I'd rather not press the back button over and over again. And I highly doubt I could watch it over again if it takes a eternity for the video to skip to where I wanted it to. Another slowness problem is that after waiting awhile while the video buffers is that sometimes it jumps you back to the beginning of the video. All the anti-buffering techniques hardly work (like turning wi-fi or your device on and off) unlike the old app where it usually worked. The only good out of this that I can watch music videos now but we have VEVO app for that. Overall a ruined app from iOS 6 and slow overall.
Really?
by LordGandalf23 on 2015/01/01 18:29
This app has something wrong with it. It's not anywhere as good as it used to be. It's like all these updates are ruining the app more than helping it. For one, this app is crashing way more than usual. When I turn my iPod on its side to watch in landscape view, the app usually crashes. Same when turning it to portrait view. It also takes forever for landscape view and portrait view to work, if they work at all. Another thing it loves to do is exit out of the app when my iPod is shut off. Say I'm watching a video, I pause it and power off my iPod to go do something really quick. Then I come back and I'm at my home screen when I turn it back on. This can happen in a very short time. I think the shortest time it took for this to happen was maybe a few seconds. Not only does it take forever to start the app back up, find the video, and wait until it goes back to where I was at in the video (skipping takes to long since the buffering takes way to long and usually ends up in the app crashing) time and time again, but it's very annoying. And transitioning to different videos takes forever, like every other function in the app. Please, just get this fixed! I'm sure there are other people who have this problem, not just me. Please change it back. It was much easier before all these updates. Please!
Change it back!
by Omonkey 14 on 2015/12/28 06:04
I am very unhappy with the new layout. It does not fit my needs. My needs are very simple you have messed with them. You will not be forgiven until I get my old layout back. You know, the layout with the description of the video and the comments in separate columns. That layout gave me joy. That is what I was used to on my IPad. You are not fixing anything with the new layouts. I will now have to get friendly with a new one. It will take time to adapt but I guess I could do it. The problem you should be fixing is the constant reports of the app crashing. You don't need to change how the app looks every once in a while. I would say if you like to make these new layouts allow them to be made, but allow an option to let the user change back to its former layout. Do not take this power like an ad with constant notifications. I do not want it to be like my IPad; it enjoys notifying me whenever I am available to update it. I want the old layout back. It makes me sad. On a side note, you should use better photos for the advertising on the Appstore. They look grainy and make me uncomfortable. I will not thank you for your time because you are not forgiven until you change it back. Also, thanks for letting me write this to go to sleep. I must wake up tomorrow to shave so I can get to my favorite toy as soon as possible. Bye
Update is not worth your time.
by Kidomaru97 on 2013/08/22 18:04
The new update is not only terribly designed, and hard to navigate, but it's new "functionality" doesn't function well at all. It not only doesn't refresh the video when you leave (which in my terms, helped a lot when the video went blurry), but the new playlist buttons on the screen are (in my opinion) not welcome. When I use these, I happen to tap these icons and go on to the next video in the playlist. It also restarts the video when I switch back, forcing me to find my place if I don't remember. The only way to avoid this if you wish to check your time watched on the video, you have to click the very center of the screen only. Not only this, but where is my button option to add to favorites? And why is the video and/or ad caption removed from the screen? Why did you think this new like button, being much smaller than the first, as well as outside of the video, would be much better? And how does putting the youtuber's name on the bottom instead of the top make it more visible? And what on earth made you think this new system was better? The only good thing you honestly did, was add the video suggestion option in the video page. But even that wasn't necessary, as "What to Watch" allowed much better recommendations. If I didn't have to rate this, I would defiantly give it 0/5 stars. Just don't update it, you're better off.
Unnecessary Changes
by Greenjosh123 on 2014/03/18 04:49
I usually never write reviews but the update was so bad that I had to write one. In case you're used to the normal video layout, Google went ahead and changed it again. The pause button is now ON the video screen of where your watching the video. It also dims the screen while pausing/playing and the pause/play button shows every time you tap the screen. This makes it inconvenient for people who would just like to see what time they're at in their video or people who only use one hand to watch. And now the number of likes or dislikes are now shortened to using 'k' for the number or thousands. I don't see why Google is making such a step back from the play button being on the lower left to being where you happened to be looking at what content you are watching, or changing the perfectly fine numbers to be different. The playlist addition to the menu was a nice touch, though. Another thing I don't get is how the top comments work. Usually the first top comment should be the one with the most likes, but for some reason the VERY top comment is a couple scrolls down, but even then, there could be another comment with even more attention that you wouldn't know about. The first top comment usually only has about one or two likes. Overall this app used to be okay, but I'm starting to lose hope in Google "improving" their video service.
An unpopular opinion, apparently
by Paancaakes on 2013/09/03 09:36
I like what google has done with the recent changes, but I might be the only one from looking at the other reviews. I can't speak problems relating to bugs or crashing as I have experienced neither. It's worth noting that I have an iPhone 5 and therefore am probably using the most compatible device for a new update. I can speak to changes in UI and experience however and this is where the update shines. The back button is basically omitted in this update from what I can tell, but who cares? Now you swipe down to pull a video to the bottom right corner and swipe it left/right to close it. It's one more motion to a closed video than before and it adds minimal time. Also worth noting the video continues playing when swiped down, allowing for picture in picture, a nice unexpected addition. Beyond this the UI has been cleaned up and looks nicer and video playback seems improved. Videos continue to play at a lower quality than desired, but this is nothing new. The one thing missing in my opinion is support for sorting videos by date/length/rating/etc. Unless I missed these features it's an odd omission.
Flawed like the web page layout
by Rkcteddy on 2012/12/09 06:40
I have two main problems with this app. First is the channels listed under the Home Feed button. I have no clue what algorithm chooses what channel goes in what order, but it sure is inconvenient. It seem the channels I watch a lot are near the bottom, and the channels that rarely upload anything are near the top. And there's no way to fix this! There in some random order! There not in alphabetical, there not in an order of who uploads the most, there not in order of who has the most activity, I have no clue what it is! And when your subscribed to a lot of youtubers, it's hard to navigate to what channel you want to watch. Secondly, when you click a channel in this list, it immediately shows the activity, instead of the uploads. This is pointless! I want to watch what they upload, not see there latest comment on someone else's video! This shouldn't be pre-selected. And you would think, well just press the show uploads button beside that. Well when you go to another channel, it switches back to the activity section! So there's no way to go down the list of all the people you've subscribed to and quickly check what they've uploaded. Heres what you need to do to fix this app. 1. Have it where I can change who's where on the list of subscription. And 2. Show uploads when you click a users name, instead of showing there activity.
The new update has major issues
by adiadel on 2014/09/23 01:58
This has been the first time I've had major issues with this app. First of all, none of the videos load without selecting the image quality first... This gets annoying very quickly... I noticed this happening recently (pre iOS 8) when I would use AirPlay to stream to my Apple TV but now it's every video on each device every time-- why can't this be adjusted under settings as needed? On top of that, I tried to load a video a few minutes ago and I keep getting playback errors.... I can't get a single video to play at this point. I even restarted my iPad and my wireless router just to make sure it had nothing to do with my internet connection or my device... Also, the checkbox for sharing comments on Google+ doesn't always appear in the new update... However, in this case, the default should be that your comment does NOT get shared on Google+... I replied to a comment on a video a few days ago that was apparently shared on Google+ and I got an email thread of comments a million miles long each time another person replied to the original comment! I was so annoyed that I had to go back and delete my comment-- I honestly wish Google+ would just disappear forever but that's another story... Meanwhile, I hope they come up with a fix for all of these issues soon...
Many Problems I Have!
by ImBAckBro on 2017/01/30 02:43
I really wish I could rate this app lower. Please stop recommending Chris brown and Soulja boy feud videos to me! Stop recommending random videos of people that I'm not even subscribed to! When I type something into the search bar and search for other videos don't erase what I left typed in the search bar?! That used to be how it was then you messed it up! Please STOP recommending videos that I don't want to watch! If I'm not subscribed to the person then I do NOT want to see it! I don't want to see all these other annoyingly redundant and basic channels! I don't care about them! And stop trying to make me care! Don't recommend videos whose channels I am not subscribed to! Also don't post music videos for bands that I've never heard, like I've never listened to them, and I never want to do why would I want to watch their music videos?! If I watch a random video that does not mean that I'm going to watch a million other videos like that daily! What's the point of the NOT INTERESTED option if you just end up getting the same recommendations? Please add some sort of filter option where I can turn off recommendations because I swear that they NEVER interest me. They usually just upset me. I swear! Seriously!! Just because I watch ONE video from somebody's channel doesn't mean I'm going to want to watch their entire repertoire! If I want to I'll subscribe to them!
Could be better
by J10nbomb on 2014/07/01 14:40
I used to have a big problem with videos randomly dropping in quality, sometimes to completely unwatchable levels, until I realized I could avoid this by turning off auto video quality but I wish I didn't need to go and change from auto to 720p every time I watch a new video (it would be nice to have an option somewhere to choose what quality videos automatically open in or even if the app remembered what you set the last video to play in). Even more annoying is that links now go to the browser instead of opening in app. If I'm watching a video in the app and I click a link to another video or channel I want to continue using the app, not switch to chrome. I like that you can reply to comments now but the commenting is still shotty. You can only reply to an original comment, not to someone's response to a comment, and as other people have said some comments at the beginning of a chain of replies won't show making it difficult to follow a conversation being held in the comments of a video. I did like the design of the app before this last update when it showed how recently a video in your subscriptions was uploaded but small style changes I can get over. Im on an ipad 2 by the way.
I never write reviews, but this is awful.
by Almansrule on 2015/10/06 02:07
From a company like Google, this app is an absolute piece of trash. It has problems with AirPlay, as in it will break and show a "playback error" after buffering for too long, After that will refuse to continue playing any subsequent videos to the Apple TV once the app is switched out of, or the phone is locked until the app is restarted. The next problem is the fact that while the app may look pretty, it organizes information terribly, giving very little in the way of what your subscriptions are putting out. Another problem to do with subscriptions is that it reorders and removes them all the time, with no option to do it manually or disable this "feature". There is no way to organize subscriptions in folders like there is online, and overall the subscription experience is lacking. The final gripe that I have with this app is that it is slow, for no apparent reason the video will not begin to play, nor will any video until the app is restarted. This happens often as well. It's just an overall choppy and unpleasant experience. A lot of this may sound like nit picking, but if you use the app frequently this can make the experience unbearably slow, and besides this is Google, a company that I respect greatly, yet they release this garbage and deserve to be called out on it.
This isn't progress
by UnluckyBenny on 2016/09/12 04:19
What's with this update? Seriously. This update is just bad. You made the comment section much more complicated than it needed to be. Can't reply to a specific person in a comment thread (and if you can, I can't find the option) and to see the full comment you're taken to another page? That's a huge downgrade from the previous version. Now there are somethings you did good, being able to edit your comment is a feature I've been asking for a long time. And I also like the look of the comment section, but you also need to make more obvious the differences between the main comments, and the replies to those comments. Making the pictures of the users slight smaller isn't helping. The way the previous version did that was better. Maybe you can incorporate the way this version looks, plus being able to edit comments, to the way the last version worked. Having to open another page just to view an entire comment thread is just dumb honestly. It's also about time you give us the ability to play this app without having it open, it was a feature in one of the older versions of this app (if I remember correctly) and I don't see why it's no longer a thing.
Update
by Duckonajetski on 2013/09/06 21:37
The latest update makes the app's interface look much better and was intended to make it easier for users to search more quickly for their next video. However, there are a few "fixes" which I am not content with. First, on the feeds the videos do not show the number of views that they have accumulated. I must have taken this view counter for granted in the last version because I find myself wanting it back. Secondly, is a 'small' HUD annoyance in playlists. The arrows when watching videos in playlists are very predominant and are placed right in the middle if the screen. I find myself always accidentally hitting these arrows which gets extremely annoying. Lastly, the chat. In the previous version, the chat on videos was very easy to access as there were three tabs of information on each video: the video info, chat, and suggested videos. Now however, you need to click a link to open the chat. One more improvement for chat would be the addition of liking/ disliking. The mobile app has no support for this functionality as there is on a computer. Thank you for spending the time to read my consecutive criticism and I hope actions can be taken to fix these issues.
Really Google?
by Jon7797 on 2014/03/21 01:55
I loved this app, the only issues I had with the pervious version was the fact that I couldn't see how many likes a comment had and I couldn't reply to comments.. They fixed that in this update and I think they should keep that but I can't freaking watch any videos now because it doesn't seem to load more than 5 seconds of 780p every 10 minutes.... And why the unnecessary of the number of likes into, for example, 1K instead of 1,000? There's no need nor reason for that... And the issue many people don't like, the location of the pause button.. If I wanna pause my video I don't want the pause button smack-dab in the middle of the screen, if I accidentally touch the screen I have to then touch it again to be able to see my video, not to sound selfish and taking stuff for granted but it is inconvenient and that is what you're aiming for, right Google? In the next update, which I'm sure will be very soon, put the pause/play button back where it belongs and remove the unnecessary shortening of the thousands into K, also improve the speed, it's freaking slow on my internet that runs at 10-20MBPS... Last update had no problem streaming with that connection at that quality, thanks in advance for correcting your mistakes
Horrible Update
by Justanotherterribleapplol on 2017/02/11 02:37
Time for a refresh and there 10 second tap thing is so annoying. Although I wouldn't be able to live without YouYube, this update has made everything you do take longer and harder and be more complex. First, the comments have not been improved whatsoever (that was my #1 complaint from last time). They still haven't given back any of the functionality we had a few months ago. Next, the entire app seems pretty laggy, but espicially the comments section, which takes FOREVER for animations to occur and load. My last few complaints include (1) the speed of the previews of the videos loading on the home page. When you are scroll down, even if it's very slowly, you will notice that the videos don't load until you see them, so they'll be gray for the first .5-1 sec. It is very annoying for your eyes to see this, but you'll have to experience it in person to feel the full effect of frustration. (2) they've taken away the ability to slide between your home, hot, and subscriptions pages and they've put them all at the bottom. 👎👎 (3) The ram management is still terrible. (4) The entire UI is just clunky and gross and a major downdate, if you will, from last time... So... DO NOT UPDATE!
New update
by Goblahcuzthersnomorenicknames on 2015/08/25 21:29
I always come on here after every update to explain my difficulties, so here we go again. The slick/ thin look of the video at the bottom looks nice but it is a total nightmare, I try to rewind and I can't even touch it cause it's so small, so please we need the old one back. Also when I leave the app to check a text the whole video starts at the beginning which aggravates the crap out of me. I liked the old times where it would hold your spot, maybe take you back a few seconds but still it held your spot. I sometimes watch let's plays that are 1-2 hours long and when that happens it drives me insane and even if I leave my room to go to the bathroom and my phone falls asleep it does it. Not cool man not cool. I also really don't like the subscription box, it looks nice but it takes me forever to actually find something cause the icons are so big, what happened to just having us read it ... It was a lot better that way. All in all this is probably the worst update ever, sorry it just is. You guys are now focusing on looks instead of function which NO ONE CARES ABOUT LOOKS! We just want to watch videos that youtubers create. We want to watch art. But we can't if we get a message during a video... Sorry big rant this time ... Probably will be another for the next update so see you later.
To be honest
by Vlogs101 on 2016/09/22 00:22
I don't know how they came up with this update and then look at himself in the mirror and night and said yeah we did this update is crap I was going down to the comment section and I'm use like tapping it but now it automatically opens which takes more time to food and uses up more of my cellular data so they better figure something out unless they won't be paying another 499 on my cell phone bill this just doesn't make any sense to me why they would do that you need to be something that a lot of people watch all the time so for you to make an updated all phone types and only shoot one particular one because I think this was made more towards the Samsung side than the iPhone side for you to do that it just takes off a whole bunch of customers consumers of your products I just think that's the way that you Kaina run things because you can see the colors of Google and your little loading thing so I can tell the Google was a big part of this update and this update is crap google scrub update it definitely does not see Austin tags and you're getting a lot of heat from people about several things don't get why you don't all know completely changes the app but still you to still videos you diss really updated to a point where it's like I knew it for so long
What lacks in the new app
by Zelogrim 213 on 2013/03/20 20:54
Its no question as to how the video gets blurry after awhile in some vids also the sound gets choppy and sounds more bad so if you can please fix that in a new update also with a multitask like the old pre installed app was before i.o.s6 and a fixed loading speed with 3g and 4g when not connected to a internet source so playback errors would not happen alot while someone is in a certain location it would be greatly appreciated by youtubers viewers and so on to be able to do more within the app it would make everyone happy and would have others think twice about how they write new reviews from updates and new features it will make the general population of people who have the app love it more than now with what has been offered in updates and the app itself it will make the app more better than safari if these things were applied and it would waste less time trying to show a video of something funny or music etc… when the app itself has something better to show so please take the time to make the updates and take some time to consider what you can do to make this app turn from a badly reviewed one into a greatly reviewed app
not user friendly anymore :-(
by susanaram on 2016/11/17 04:20
i have an iphone 5s running ios 10 and these glitches have been happening for quite a few weeks now. like most people i run out of high speed data leaving me inching along on 3G, which would be manageable if the video loading didn't time out before it can even play. i noticed this when i drag down the vid to minimize it, the circular loading icon isn't there at the top of my screen next to my carrier label anymore. this forces me to either close out of the video, losing whatever buffering progress i had and try to play it again, or shut down and restart the app if it happens consecutively. the same thing happens with long 2 minute ads that play before the actual vid. the app will time out while it's buffering the ad, making me close everything and restart it. i would have no problem loading an ad if it was 30 secs or less because on restricted data speeds it is very inconvenient to play a longer ad. even if there is a "skip after 5 seconds" option, the app still won't play the ad until after it's halfway buffered. these are the main things keeping me from using the app more frequently and it is very frustrating as an avid video watcher. please fix them!
App is terrible
by Ragamorph on 2012/12/05 03:04
Update new version: Left at 1 star because my chief complaint was crappy video quality and its still there. Cool that they updated for iPhone 5 but the videos still go blurry or stop and load all the time. It's reduculous. It happens with 3G, 4g, LTE and WIFI. It doesn't matter the connection speed. Rarely do I get a video that I can actually see details in. Most are sharp for the first second then go fuzzy. Sometimes I get lucky and get 30 seconds of clear video before it goes out. Previous version Just absolutely horrendous. It's virtually unusable. Half the videos won't load and the ones that do either buffer forever, go to a definition that can equate to trying to open your eyes under water and see or they won't load except for 1 second at a time. I know apple and google are at war, but really, why would you torture the others' customers like this, I believe it's forbidden by the Geneva Convention. Seriously though, if you're going to make an app 1) update it and 2) listen to your customer reviews. I'd like to see this updated for ios6 and iPhone 5. You could also throw is a bone and make it'd UI match what people want. Just read other reviews. Yes I choose an apple device but, come on, I thought google was a better company than to put out a crappy app and not update it.
FIX IT
by Follow@food_is_yummay on IG on 2014/02/16 06:13
There are 4 lags that make the app basically worthless and annoying. 1. Randomly when I'm watching a video the quality will go from good to completely blurry and unwatchable. Skipping to other parts of the video to try to fix it can sometimes make the quality even worse! FIX IT! 2. Even when I have 3 bars of wifi, every half a second the video decides it's a "good" idea to waste my time and have it buffer for 5 minutes. Once again, skipping to other parts of the video works for about a second and then it continues to pause every half a second. In fact, it took me about 20 minutes to watch a video 2 minutes long because of this. FIX IT! 3. Whenever I click on a video, even when I have three bars of wifi, a message with some weird looking face comes up that says tap to retry. I end up tapping like 7 times before the video finally starts loading (which takes like 5 minutes btw!) 4. When I'm reading comments on a video and I do that tap to load more comments thing all the comments and suggested videos randomly disappear! Whenever I refresh, it just stays the same! These lags make the app horrible, useless, and annoying. I would rate it zero stars if I could. For whoever is reading this review DONT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! You're better off using Safari.
Good app
by elvis1114 on 2017/03/13 00:37
I've been watching music vids for about 7-8 years now and over the past 2 years I started watching various live feeds from everything going on in the world. I don't like the commercials they added so I mute. The past two months The app has gotten worse with its censorshlp. First certain live music disappeared. Then certain subjects political subjects were banned. The past couple days I have noticed small independent bloggers and vid creators have come under heavy pressure from app creators. Vids are being pulled for all sorts of reasons but you can still watch 1,000s of rap vids with horrible racist content and satan worshipping snuff films from the 70's without even looking for it. I'm really starting to hate this new version that take away users ability to share vids due to subject matter. We can share vids of people being decaputated and burned alive but it's not permitted to be pro president. Thanks for taking the greatest app ever and turning it into just a good app and going down hill to the point of soon being replaced by a free platform for all.
Seriously Google?
by Kelso228 on 2014/03/22 00:47
Hmmm...where to start with the new update? Oh, how about we start with the giant pause button in the middle of the screen. Honestly, what was Google thinking putting that dumb pause/play button directly in the middle of the screen. It covers the video, and it makes the video dim every time you click on the screen. Some people just want to look to see how much time is left to the video. Well, you ruined that Google. Also, the channel pages have been wrecked. Some people spent a lot of time making a cool banner for their viewers to see. Well, Google decided to cover it up with the profile picture. And to add to that, when you scroll down on a channel, it scrolls the banner up, so you can't see it. Wow Google, worst update ever. Plus, I still can't figure out how to reply to comments, because you have to have a stupid Google+ account. I tried getting one, still couldn't reply to any comments. Way to make it harder for the users. So thanks Google for making this worse (if you can't tell I'm being sarcastic) As you can tell, no one like this new update so in the next one, change everything back to it's old layout and you'll get more people to download the app. Please please please fix the annoying new stuff you put in this.
YOU HAD ONE JOB!
by Ubedaman on 2014/09/27 00:29
Why does this app have such a hard time playing videos? I mean that's what it's suppose to do right? I've noticed that each update makes the videos less watchable. Now playback errors are as common as ads(which is very common). I can't tell you how many times I've gotten a playback error within the first minute of the video. And if it's not a playback error it's the video freezing while the audio continues. When this happens you can't just rewind the video a little you have to restart it again which means another 30 second ad...Once you finally get the video to work it's very very very rare that it will stay at 720p because it constantly falls way below that. Some videos will just refuse to play without buffering every 3 seconds. 9/10 videos have a ad and only about two of them allow you to skip them after five seconds so with all the problems I just mentioned you spend most of your time watching ads. Now playlist still only allow you to remove one video at a time which is very annoying if you want to remove multiple videos at a time. I know no one over at Google really cares about these problems but seriously someone needs to fix them.
It's really bad...
by Juliza A. on 2015/07/02 16:23
I reviewed this app about a year or two ago, and I definitely needed to address an issue and personal opinions I'm having since the recent update. When I moved the app to see my video in a widescreen view, the video completely cleared out and seconds later the app crashed. This has been the only problem I'm having at the moment, but it's still an annoyance having the app crash and video not play when it's just been updated. Personally, I don't like the layout being on the bottom, I like the "view channels" tab on the of your subscriptions videos, but I ran a lot smoother when the layout of playlists were on the left and side. Another issue/personal opinion I have is with the tabs that used to be above the video. They're completely gone now, and I don't know If this was removed or if mine just isn't showing, but I can't save, share, nor check suggested videos from the one I'm currently watching. I have to go back to the channel I got the video from and save it from there. I hope there will be an update soon because the concept was good, but the functionality of the app seems to have backtracked and accessibility has definitely plummeted...
Never again!
by TheD1VA on 2015/11/18 04:21
What the heck??? You want to charge $14 now for a still unfixed app! It's even worse now, it doesn't pop up with my recommended favorites then the advertised ones or vice versa even. Fav list you have to pay for. The video-sound syncing is off now. Rebooting video &/or app if I have to pause for a minute. I can't believe you don't listen to your customers! Please at least give a revision to go from the white/red version back to the red/white! As buggy as that was, it was a dream compared to this! Don't update if you don't have to!!! While you rake in billions or trillions of $$$ why make us pay more??? Is it less buggy? NO! Due to this alone I cancelled this, and anything related to google in any shape or form! Going to join a "you-tube-google" boycott until you at least give us the option of reverting back to more stable versions! And should I need a "tube" fix? I will pay a 1 time 1-3$ fee for an app that allows that to be viewed in an easier format! You'll never get the google+ fee again, nor the $14 fees requested for you tube EVER! I have a working antiquated version on an equally antiquated computer, that I will enjoy all the same without the ads IF I ever decide I need to watch but til then I am joining the google services boycott 4ever!
Bad Recommendations
by Toughchic236 on 2016/07/08 21:25
No matter how many times I click 'not interested' in news, sport, and irrelevant videos they STILL show up in my recommendations. I have absolutely no interest in sports or the news, and I have never watched a sports or news video. On top of that, videos I've already watched show up in recommendations. It also takes forever to click 'not interested' on the twenty-some videos in my recommended list. It would by much better if I could click all of the videos I don't care about, and then tap 'non interested' so they all disappear quickly. I also have problems with bugs. For example, sometimes the description, likes and dislikes will disappear on a video no matter how many times I refresh. The quality on videos is also crap. Every video should be able to be in HD quality. The app will also crash for no reason. On top of that, sometimes my videos will pause for no reason or skip ahead. You truly need to fix this app. I love watching videos, but the app is terrible. No matter how many times people complain about the constant updates, reappearing bugs, bad layout, etc it's never fixed!! Listen to your fans and FIX THE APP!!!
Was 5 stars, is terrible
by Try Standing on 2013/08/26 06:16
I loved the update for an hour-- then, and ever since, I've been having continuity problems. Several minutes into any video a varietal playback problem occurs, one of: skipping minutes of the video (this one comes WITH the other problems, always); suddenly blurry quality as though somebody suddenly fogged up a lense and the fog is irremovable; sometime in tandem with previous, but more common an occurrence is the cutting out of sound. This problem can not be fixed by reinstallation, closing out the app and trying again from scratch, nor even a device reboot. It persists, and reoccurs every time I reload any part of any video, and if the video is long enough, one or all of these problems will happen, assuredly, at least a couple of times if I'M persistent. Because of these issues, I have been forced to use the less awesome mobile-version website through another app. My biggest problem is that I can't just continue watching my video! These things happen without fail and I have finally discontinued my use of this app-- please fix this problem, NOBODY would want to have to deal with this. I'm fairly surprised no other reviews are about this, seeing as this is a completely new device and All.
Scroll and 10 Second Advance
by 4 da skins on 2017/02/12 23:02
First off, the 10 second idea itself is not bad. I like the idea of rewinding back a few seconds. The terrible implementation is the double tapping of one entire half of the screen. See, when I'm a little bored if the video is repetitive or something, I rapidly tap the right side of the screen just to see the buttons appear and disappear. Now when I do that it advances like a minute forward, which is horribly annoying. What would fix this is having the two functions as small buttons like the pause/play or the previous/next video. This is feature needing fixing the most. Second off, on short videos or if I want to re-watch a video, I, as a normal person would, scroll back the video to the beginning. The problem is that with this update, it's nearly impossible. The scroll bar takes up the whole screen length when in miniature mode, meaning that I can't reach the far left side. This is horribly annoying as well. This then forces me to rewind to a bit after the beginning and then having to use the 10 second feature which is already something I've complained about. Overall, this update is terrible and I regret not reading the reviews before updating.
Needs some fixing
by amanda_noelle2010 on 2012/10/02 15:36
Overall I like the look and the setup and how it's similar to the Facebook app. However, before on the other app, when wi-fi was enabled, the video played in amazing quality. Now the videos stay in a more pixelated quality regardless. It only loads so many comments and if you're looking for one that happened over an hour ago on one like say...the terrible call made during the Greenbay Packers vs. the Seattle Seahawks, then you're screwed. You don't have the ability to click on a user's name from their comment, or better yet, even their comment if you wanted to go to a link they provided. You also cannot like or dislike or really do anything pertaining to any comments made on the video. Does have more such results than the original app, though. There are some videos that only showed up on the desktop version, and if you tried to do this on the phone, it wouldn't work without flash. This app finds that video. For example the OFFICIAL music videos actually show up as the top result for songs on this one. I swear the old one was ONLY the "alternate" results. Just needs some improvement!
AWESOME, but one big problem...
by awesomenes42 on 2015/03/03 22:12
I use this app literally every single day! There's nothing wrong with the app besides some videos taking a long time to load here and there, but as you saw in the title, there's one big problem with it! (Or, at least in my opinion anyway.) like I said, some videos will take a while to load, but this is what leads to this big problem most of the time it happens. I use the app for so long during my free time, and after using it for about 45 minutes to an hour or so, the next video says it couldn't load! I always keep hitting the the screen to refresh it, but half a second after, it says the same thing! Sometimes it won't load because I lost Internet connection to my home for some reason, (not sure why that happens), but even when I get back on Internet, it still won't load any videos! The only way I can get it to start working isn't by sliding the page up, but by sliding off, (if you know what I mean), my phone! The only problem with that is the iPhone takes a while to turn back on completely! Please fix this problem! It's driving me insane!!!
Horrible version
by Vince Twu on 2015/09/22 15:31
1. Scrolling through subscribed channels means going horizontally, which is the shortest side of the phone. Can't see as many in one view unless you click the one tab to open them up in a whole new screen. This is less intuitive, not as convenient as the old way, and an ugly design. 2. User account gets its own page? I don't upload videos like thousands of other users, and this page is a waste. The only thing useful on there is the subscribed playlists. Wait, why is that in my account and not with the other subscriptions? Doesn't make any sense. 3. In the old version you could swipe to the right and pull out a menu/list of everything you need, like all your subscriptions and playlists and settings, and you could scroll through this, while the main focus of the app was on still the videos. It was nice and it felt like an advanced feature that more apps started adopting, seemingly after you introduced it (Facebook for example? Maybe? Can't remember exactly) but it seemed like you had something cool that worked really well, and it was intuitive and quick to use. Now everything takes more steps just to browse and easily see the videos I'm interested in.
Great App But It Can Be Greater!
by Tyrell.Rawls on 2012/09/24 18:02
This is an amazing app. I love how user-friendly it is and I also love the layout. But, there are a few things that I believe will help improve this app and increase positive feedback, which in turn will increase downloads. Firstly, I think you should allow users to pause and play videos/audios by using their Apple headset. That way they could quickly pause or play a video/audio more rapidly. Another improvement that people would enjoy is the ability to play videos/audios in the background while navigating in other apps on your iPhone. This would be awesome! Lastly, it will be terrific if you could somehow enable users to scroll through a video/audio at different speed/tuning rates so that they could accurately get to the part of the video/audio that they desire most. With the slight modifications added onto what you already have, I would rate you guys 5 stars. Like I said before you guys did a great job with this app and I know you want it to be greater. Hope my feedback could be of some assistance. Take care. - Ty Rawls
Are you even trying anymore?
by ohsnapitsmads on 2015/07/27 15:52
I have so many issues with this app and then I see there is an update for it. Awesome! Now my problems will be fixed. NOPE! It did absolutely nothing. What is the point of an update if you don't fix anything? My main issue is that when I watch a video it will be fine until halfway through and then the audio continues but the video starts at the beginning. I pause the video thinking the video just needs to catch up, but it doesn't work. Now I'm pretty much watching the same video but with different audio. I fast forward the video, and it's still back at the beginning but with the audio from later. Also, let's say I am watching a video that is 6:20 long and let's say the audio/video is acting up again. Not only is the video and audio completely off, but now the video is exceeding 6:20! It keeps counting up now. At this point, I don't know what is going on and everything is screwed up. I don't even think you people bother to read these feedbacks. If you did, we wouldn't have issues all the time! Maybe you should take the time to read through the feedback so you can fix what needs to be fixed. These "updates" obviously are not doing anything.
Like the new features but it's broke now
by Jgorinac on 2017/02/13 00:33
All these people complaining about the 10 second interval feature need to stop requesting it's removal, I love it. Make it an option if anything. Main complaint is the comment section, I should be able to scroll while in a draft. I want to reference specific statements or content in the feed and I can't once I start typing. It's by far the worst decision on their end and I'm not using google plus for it! Also a notification never takes you to the reply it was notifying you about and your comments are on top so you simply can't find it. It's seriously flawed Reason for this post is the issue at hand currently is the app will no longer play any video. I get the message something went wrong try again later. I've forced closed the app, restarted my phone, and erased and reinstalled the app and the issue remains. I went to the site in safari and I can load those same videos. It was very strange given I was using it and it crashed then after the crash it would never load content again. Having erased the app and it still remaining leaves me with no other troubleshooting options.
Rough Time
by The Myth - YouTube on 2015/06/08 14:15
I've not had any chance to review the app until now. I love the app, it's basic functions and all but it's just not what it could be. For one there should be a way to check our inbox for messages or comments so we can be up to date. I know we could use Safari for that on our iPhones, but it would make it so much easier. I've had a problem recently where I click on a video, I change the quality (I have to every time even though I've used the same quality every time) and the video starts loading, as in the gray bar ticks across the bottom of the player, and all the while the video has not started playing. It does this for 1 minute videos where the video has been fully loaded then it won't play for another 20 seconds or so and once it starts playing, the video player acts like it needs to load the rest of the video by the gray bar loading while I'm watching which confuses me as I waited a minute or so thinking it was loading then it just stops and starts the video and starts loading it again. This app needs some bug time adjusting.
It's ok but I could be better
by Fhvhfdcbhbjbubxrnig on 2014/12/20 07:20
I like some of the new features they have added in the update like being able to go back to a previous video but I have a couple of problems with this app. 1. Rewinding is horrible and every time I try to rewind it will pause and then I'll try to play it and it won't play. 2. Replying to comments is a difficult task. 3. It will quit out of the app randomly and when I turn my phone off it'll quit out, watching a video and want to go to full screen and back to normal it'll quit out, buffering it'll quit and I'll lose the video I was watching. And 4. Way to many ads, it'll be an ad on every video, when I can't sleep and I put on some quite relaxing music I turn my volume up and then the add comes on and I freak out and hit myself in the face like 20 times. And to all those people saying 'there's nothing wrong with the app it's just like 2% of people with bad experiences with that app writing reviews' no stop that there's a lot of people with bad experiences with that app just because you didn't have one doesn't mean almost everyone didn't…so shut up
A decent replacement, but a sidegrade at best.
by Ratchet77 on 2012/10/01 17:29
This version is much prettier to look at and operates more like the site itself, making videos easier to find. It's also nice to have videos that don't end themselves when they're over, and more development on checking your subscriptions. However moving to different parts of videos can be difficult at times as the scrubbing bar does not respond. Videos also opt to drop their quality on their own should they fail to load fast enough, which is irritating as I'd rather just wait than stare at a low-FPS blur. And for those that made use of it, this one no longer overtakes the audio channel. That means no more playing videos, then closing the phone and double-tapping the home button to resume them with just audio, which saves battery immensely. I usually used this method to listen to Retsupuraes while at work... not anymore I guess. Overall, a decent app, but would much rather see the return of the old one along side this to give the people an option, or at least feature adaptation of the old app to this one.
Recent problems
by me in Alabama on 2015/04/15 00:35
I have used this app for quite a while without many problems but recently this app has stopped working almost completely. It freezes up constantly and when I try to play videos, there is a black screen every single time and the video never shows. The audio works sometimes. I have restarted my iPhone, deleted the app, and re-downloaded it but this problem still exists. Even before these problems, if I fast forward or rewind during a video it buffers and freezes and I end up having to exit the app and restart. I have also had an extremely annoying problem where it won't let me lock my iPhone with a video playing. Now I cannot go jogging and listen to music with earphones because it won't let me play it in the background on the lock screen! It used to let me do this and I don't know what happened. The constant freezing and black screen has only been happening in the past week. Everything is up to date and this could be a result of a recent software or app update, I don't know. This problem NEEDS to be fixed!!! I cannot even watch videos anymore.
Gets worse and worse...
by HamsterJuice on 2014/09/06 02:59
With every single new update I've watched this stupid app just get worse and worse. Starting off with the small things: suggested channels are completely irrelevant to my interests. If you try to watch one video from a channel, well, then you must want to watch all of them, so now the videos are all part of a playlist which maximizes itself once the the videos you didn't want to watch start. Comments seem to be in no particular order, and sometimes when scrolling through you get stuck in some kind of weird loop where you see the same 10 or so comments over and over. Onto the big things, the app is ridiculously unstable and crashes constantly. On your 'What to Watch' page, they got rid of room for content from the channels you actually enjoy watching so they can shove ads in your face and suggest some Minecraft channels for you to watch. Even if you've never played the game and aren't subbed to any gaming channels. I would definitely recommend this app to people who enjoy watching ads and videos that have nothing to do with their interests, assuming they are actually able to watch them, considering the crashes.
Almost Broke My Phone
by Nice Going YouTube on 2016/01/06 06:01
He's how it went ok, I was just searching threw my subscription box and I clicked on a video. It sounds ok right? Nothing wrong at all. Until it took a bit to load and the video popped up and I could only see half of the screen on my phone so I could barely see what I was watching. Then the rest of the screen was completely black. It was very laggy and glitchy and it didn't let me back out of the video or press the home button. Then I tried restarting my phone and that didn't work. So it turned off but it would let me turn my phone back on, nothing was working and my phone was completely off and wouldn't turn on. At this point I didn't know what to do. Just a reminder it's 2:00 in the morning and I'm not going no where. So I tried waiting until my phone died so I can charge it and maybe it will turn back on but no. It ain't happening. So I waited around 15 mins and had to hold the home button and the power button for 15 secs and then it restarted my phone. Now I am happy that I can finally look at my beautiful phone and not a black screen. Surprised you've read this far, but thanks for reading. I just wanted to put this out there.
Terrible...
by Anthony221121 on 2015/08/17 03:49
This app is terrible. It's slow, it crashes, there's no multitasking, weird spot for the play/pause button since new update, no annotations, you can't choose quality on cellular networks, even over LTE which is the same speed as my WI-FI network, and during every video I watch the pixelation happens, ON A 80 MBPS WIFI NETWORK SPEED! Also on the menus it randomly sorts your subscribers so it is hard to find who you are looking for if you have a lot. Also, I really hate the positioning of the forward and back buttons when watching a playlist. I always tap them on accident and it's very annoying. Oh yeah and one last thing, they took out the scroll to top feature so If you were scrolling down to view the comments and want to look back at the description, you have to manually scroll all the way up. This needs a MAJOR update. Just terrible... Why google... Why... EDIT: Hey they released an update with more bugs! Now when you are in the middle of watching a video, the video randomly goes to the beginning and the audio continues. The only way to fix it is to completely close the video and open it again. Great. Thanks for providing more bugs Google.
...really, Google?!
by RagingBattles on 2015/10/13 04:08
"Why?" Is my only question. The app was great before. I could be watching a video while scrolling through my subbed channels and look at my history and channel without having to exit an entire video. Who do you think you're impressing? Because whoever it is, you've failed them. The colors are blinding, there's TONS of unneeded space and the overall design is lazy. I could've come up with a better one. The dropdown menu was great, as stated above, and the interface was much more user friendly. I cringe every time I see an update and hope you fix the problems. But no. "Bug fixes" and "full iOS 9 compatibility" is all I get. Don't even get me started on the crashing! I feel like you haven't been to the review section in a while, because your current rating is 1 and a half stars. You went to one of the best apps on the market to one of the worst and I doubt you even care. This has been going on for far too long and you need to listen to us. Change the app back. Make it good again. I'm tired of uninstalling and reinstalling to get the old version back and I'm sure everyone else is, too. So just do everyone a favor and CHANGE IT BACK.
Can see more potential
by Southern Fox on 2012/09/20 15:47
I would like if this had a history function so if I had to cut a video or two short, then I could go back and watch it. If it does, then it's really out of sight. Also, if it had the ability to view the youtuber's inbox. I'm getting too many spam videos and also respond to messages people send me or comment on their comment. And maybe, the ability to upload videos from the phone. Although better (using the term loosely) than the old built-in app, it needs a few more tweaking. But overall positive aspects is: That I can see ALL the people I'm subscribed to, and not just the hand full that the built-in app gave me (that's big to me). The pull down to update the video feed is needed, I hated having to go back and forth between videos or subscriptions to see new things. It's fairly quick to load up the people's video pages. I'm only having small problems so far, but I'm glad I downloaded this app. Because the iOS 6 update removed the old built-in app for me.
PLEASE FIX BLURRED VIDEO QUALITY
by Alpha 5000 on 2014/01/23 15:17
I for one love this app but it's frustrating and very annoying to see video quality degrade like this does. On my iPhone 4S it can go from super clear to where it's useless to even watch a video the way it blurs out which makes NO scenes to me to degrade a video quality to where it renders it useless. I always have to go to safari watch it there instead but much rather watch from the app while it's working right and ultra clear. I've downloaded update after update hoping it's an update to the my particular problem but always for some reason gets ignored. I assume this isn't an isolated issue? Please fix with next update. I can handle a little quality degradation but not when it's so blurry it hurts my eyes to even watch a video and can't make out anything on the video which all it's good for is listening to the sound which btw also goes down in quality but anyway please fix this and I'll give it 10 stars if I had that option but 5 for sure. Thanks

What the hell have you done.
by T- Ryner on 2017/03/25 17:20
I have enjoyed videos on this platform for years, and now I can't. The amount of adds on each video is insane, and YouTube red is extremely overpriced. Can I just enjoy and support the people I'm subscribed to? Or is that too much to ask. I have seen you go from occasionally 5-10 second adds to constant, repetitive, un skippable 1 minute adds. If I made a review a year ago, you would get 5 stars. Now, it's taking everything I have to not give you one. Drop the price of YouTube red, and have people pay monthly. You're either draining our wallets dry, or you're driving us off. Seriously. What the hell have you done.
PLEASE FIX THIS BUG MY LIFE IS NOT COMPLETE NOW

Still experiencing issues
by Coalfriend on 2017/03/25 16:38
Never fails that the app freezes or crashes when streaming to another device (like a smart tv). Tried numerous devices and the problem is the app, no doubt. Had been an issue through all versions of app. Great job YouTube, give yourselves a pat on the back 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
Adds adds adds adds adds

Awesome vids
by Klonoa1211 on 2017/03/25 16:01
This is so cool, usually on the tv you have to wait for your favorite shows to come on. But here you can watch them anytime you like and more!!😄 You don't get quality entertainment like this any where else!😃
30 second ads
by 🍌🍔🌮🍣 on 2017/03/25 15:56
Every time I watch a video there's a 30 second ad before every video and it's so annoying😑 I hope this will be fixed soon because it's getting really irritating😩

Why is this Buggy?
by Phd.Falcon on 2017/03/25 15:34
Just today when attempting to watch a video something strange happened. The video would either get A).Stuck on an ad, or B). The video would glitch and would only play about 10second chunks of the video. Only today am i experiencing this problem. Please fix this bug, i have been seeing a lot of people report this.
Also.

STOP UPDATING FOR 3 SECONDS PLEASE IT MAKES IT WORSE EVERY TIME
The dumbest thing about this app 😡
by Lleyton26 on 2017/03/25 15:04
I'm starting to get really mad, why can't you change the name of your channel any time you want?! It's just dumb!! You can only change the name 3 times every 3 months?! That's just crap!!!! FIX IT NOW!!!! 😡😡
Still Bad
by DiscoBrisco on 2017/03/25 14:56
I can't even watch a full video because of the constant crashes.
Thanks
by Yoman45080 on 2017/03/25 14:34
After many years all of my subscriptions have been deleted for no reason. The next and previous buttons are also very large and are too easy to accidentally press during a video.
Haven't been able to watch videos for a week!
by Dantoro1 on 2017/03/25 14:24
It keeps saying "there was an error loading the video, tap to try again". Not ONE video I've tried to watch in the last week has even started let alone finished.
Speed setting
by TERMINATOR._.HK on 2017/03/25 14:18
It's a excellent app but I like to listen to music at certain speeds like the PC version. Can you add the video speed option to YouTube for mobile. If you do I will download every single YouTube app there is and rate 5 stars. Please add a speed option like the PC version of YouTube.

Annoying invisible bottom
by P2PParker on 2017/03/25 14:10
The 10 seconds bottom is too annoying! I keep pressing it every time I try to press the full screen bottom. You can either put a visible option or remove the 10 second thing!
Can't Log In
by Izzy123435 on 2017/03/25 13:44
I like this app, but a few months ago it and any other app that was signed into my google account logged me out on my iPad Mini and I haven't been able to log back in since. This is really frustrating, and I can't do anything on many of my apps now. It said something about there being a problem with the company and that it may have logged people out accidentally but it hasn't been fixed.
GARBAGE APP!! 💩💩💩
by deano22 on 2017/03/25 12:50
Google you truly need to fire your whole software development team. This app is absolutely terrible. It is beyond buggy and all it does is constantly buffer...I HATE THE ALL RED TOP BAR, SUPER UGLY!! Not to mention u can never scrub through a video. Plus we all have iOS 10 so why won't u give the iPad Pro 9.7 picture and picture and background multitasking ????
Doesn't load
by Alec577 on 2017/03/25 12:29
Comments and recommended videos load, but the video takes over 1 minute to load and then says that it is unavailible. Fix your sh*t google cause this isn't the first tome it happens!

YouTube censoring conservative videos!

Enough is enough YouTube !
Great App
by JCHudsonSoCal on 2017/03/25 06:45
Decent app, but I would really like to be able to adjust font size, as I am near-sighted. I have downgraded my review of this app given that I have contacted YouTube regarding accessibility several times, and I haven't heard anything from them. Evidently they couldn't care less about the visually impaired, since no progress has been made on this issue. I appreciate the other changes made to the app, but accessibility is paramount.
Still waiting for PIP...Any ETA?
by goglymogly on 2017/03/25 06:45
The app works almost flawlessly, however it's missing a very important feature which allows iPad Pro users multitask. Please add picture-in-picture so we can stop using alternative apps for YouTube.
Awesome

Video issue
by Ama sing on 2017/03/25 03:24
Hello, there's something wrong with YouTube because every time I try to click on any video, it says," Something went wrong with the video tap to retry" and when I tap it, it says the same thing. This is on every video. It would really help if you fixed this. I promise I'll change this review to 5 star if you please fix this. I can't even watch the videos, I tried everything. I'm sorry for bad review but it's the truth. Sincerely, E.G.

Ever since this new update my YouTube will not work it just says there has been a problem or something like that and it is annoying it makes it so I can only watch YouTube on my PS4
Stop censoring content
by JaytotheC on 2017/03/25 00:12
Youtube will now begin censoring content under guise of parental controls. Hopefully a youtube replacement will surface soon, one that will simply be a neutral platform for genuine content made by authentic content creators. Twitter first.. and now Youtube are quickly becoming worthless echo-chambers of unwatchable predictable drivel. This move is designed pick up the pace of censorship. Unfortunately this is not a surprise to anyone paying attention. Sad
Thumbnails
by Kitty123345 on 2017/03/25 00:01
This is a very good app but I would like it if you added thumbnails that you can choose a thumbnail or upload one.
I LOVE IT, but
by Antaresfire on 2017/03/24 23:50
Don't get me wrong I love YouTube!! I love watching all the YOUTUBERS like aphmau, ldshawdowlady, and so on. I enjoy seeing cool, funny, interesting videos, but there are some glitches though. When I have it to a small screen, it was make it big and I can't click the button to make it small, I'll have to leave then come back. It can kinda slow too. But over all the glitches I love to go on YouTube, and I go on every single day 😜🤓 some of the updates are pretty cool too! I can't wait to see how YouTube will be in the future. With cooler updates and stuff like that. Thank you 🤗

Crappy app for truth news
by Libtard hunter on 2017/03/24 23:23
Every time I start watching a conservative news channel I get cut off they would rather you watch liberal crap and the communist agenda that these mainstream media wants you to see them the truth. I know how to think for myself and I don't believe anything MSM has to say.
Great for Red Users
by Tatathomas on 2017/03/24 23:18
I have YouTube Red which is ad/commercial free. It makes the app flawless. It's $10 a month and it includes Google Play Music. It's worth every penny.
Please put it back the way it was at least with the player.
by Weatheronthe8s on 2017/03/24 23:11
I personally think the new video player is worse than the old one. It takes like a whole second to come up now and I don't like how the settings are on a drop down menu instead of a fade effect now. I personally don't care for the new layout either, I think I should've never updated.
Pretty poorly thought out
by Dk21291 on 2017/03/24 22:58
Queue is poorly thought out. Not easy to go back like when browsing on the web. Overall not great to use. If I could link to my PS3 from the mobile site in safari I'd trash this terrible app.

No sound??
by PuppyPrincess:3 on 2017/03/24 22:14
I've had this problem for a day now and my ads have sound and it seems as everything is going fine and then when I get to the video there's no sound or there's this faint pulsing sound that won't go away unless you close the app. I'd like to watch my videos and give the youtubers the feedback they deserve but kinda hard when I can't watch the video :p
May be a problem solver
by Dax17384 on 2017/03/24 22:12
I tried restarting the device I'm watching on and it worked so far so if your having trouble try and restart

New Update = No Bueno
by thegreatphotographer on 2017/03/24 19:30
Edit: 3/24/17 - The newest update now doesn't allow the user to refresh the page when actually on a video. (You can no longer pull down to refresh under a video say; to refresh the view count / likes&dislikes) This is really annoying and probably a bug but either way: YOUTUBE FIX IT PLEASE!! 2/11/17 - The new update is absolutely horrible. For starters, now every time that I would like so scrub along the video, the video skips ahead or backwards 10 seconds. This new skip feature is also very annoying when I'm wanting to exit full screen because all it does is skip forward and then I'm able to skip the screen. Finally, the new update REMOVED SOMETHING that I believe everyone should be able to see and that is the view count. I can understand keeping the likes and dislikes rounded to a number but for views, that is completely unnecessary. It bugs me that I can't see how many views my favorite creators have pulled in for their new videos. Please change this back to the original where you could see all the views.
It won't let me sigh in or create a account!!
by Threat191 on 2017/03/24 19:17
I will click create account and it will say error and same for if i sigh in with my old account
Everything Wrong With The YouTube App
by Jazzy's thoughts on 2017/03/24 19:10
I've been a consistent YouTube app watcher for over many years, and I've seen the many modifications made to the app. Some glitches fixed, other bugs not. Right now the biggest issue is when I full screen a video, the app will glitch and not let me exit out of full screen. I have to close the app completely, delete it from my history and reopen it in order to fix it. This happens to me daily which is a huge inconvenience. Another issue is my subscription box. I'm subscribed to less than 30 youtubers and only a select few show up in my subscription box. This is quite annoying, because I have to scroll through the side bar with all of my subscriptions and find the youtuber. This layout is another annoying thing because if you misclick a bubble, it takes forever to get back to looking for who I was originally scrolling for. I honesty think that's just a bad layout for the subscriptions.

Bad update
by Johnjohn5678 on 2017/03/24 16:57
Youtube used to look allot better before the new update. The new update has a bad look. It has a thin red bar and the rest is all white. The old app use to have a perfect balance of red looked allot smoother than the current update. Please bring back the red color in the next update.

YouTube overall used to be awesome. Great for a quick song lookup, funny videos. But now you can't do anything without being stuck watching some stupid commercial. Their way of trying to force someone into buying into their YouTube Red.

Poorly designed
by Taiga rocks on 2017/03/24 14:19
Rules are inconsistent, ban anything controversial, and the AI ban people on accident constantly. YouTube became big because of freedom and ease of use. Neither of which are still present to this day.
Yes,YouTube runs well at iPad1.

I don't know why people are saying that it keeps on crashing... It works on my iPad PERFECTLY! I think you guys just need to update your mobile device.... I updated my iPad to the latest version of iOS not to long ago, and since then I've had ABSOLUTELY NO trouble at all!!! Anyways, the updates is just wonderful! I love the new feature where you can search for videos and watching another video. And I noticed that you can FINALLY play playlists!!! Yay!! I made a private playlist for all my favorite songs so it's nice to not have to click EVERY time I have to switch it to the next song. But I also noticed you guys still haven't added a feature where you can edit your channel on your mobile device or check your inbox. I know you can just go to Safari or the web to check your inbox but it would be a WHOLE lot faster if it was just on the app. And I found out you CAN edit your channel on your mobile device. I guess I've never noticed (or was it there before?) there's a button where it says: "Switch to desktop" (I think??) and it turns into the layout you would have if you were on your PC which is so cool! THANKS GUYS! Overall, I just adore this new update! There's so improvements to be made but I understand you guys are trying your hardest! Thanks again, don't listen to the bad reviews, and I look forward to new updates!!!
Crashing and commenting problems!!
by edleat puffle on 2013/08/19 04:08
Crashes once and a while! And when I comment after 2 comments I comment another one it SAYS ERROR TO LOAD MESSAGE!!!!! I EVEN REBOOT THE APP and the same thing happens!!!! Please fix the comment problem not being able to post more than 2-3 comments!!!! And the same thing kinda happens on the computer version but I usually have to type the word shown up top and it will post the comment! But the app version it has a error!!!!!!! And fix the video quality! Many times the video will get blurry after a while and it takes me 2-3 times turning my I pod to sleep mode and going back to the app and then it usually clears up... And I want to be able to see the subscribers that subscribe your channel if you had one cause I have a channel and I go to uploads but it doesn't go to my main channel page I have to search up my name click on one of my video and click on my name to see the main channel! If I click uploads it shows a list of all of the videos you uploaded! If you don't know what I mean then... I tell you... It doesn't show my channel art when I click uploads and I have to search up my name and click in my name to see the main channel page where I can see my profile picture and channel art...I want to be able to see who subscribed my channel from my I pod and to be able to like videos! I know I'm typing a lot in this review but this is all I have to say so can you please fix the problems! Thanks!
Needs to fix video category for channels!!
by Urmomsbitch on 2016/02/04 06:30
I love the app, and i love all of the channels I am subscribed to and there content. However, when I go to a youtubers channel to see their list of videos on my ios it is just a blank screen. Sometimes I do not have time to watch all the videos in my sub box so later I would go to the individuals channel and look at their most recent videos to enjoy them. But just recently, for ios, it wont load, it doesnt say it cant load it is just blank, so i go to the channels home page, but not always are their most recent videos up in there. And if you still are unaware of the slight but bothering problem, when you click on a channel of anyone it loads everything just fine except the category that says VIDEOS. There are five categories on the ios the first being home, then videos, playlists, channels, then about. The videos category shows the most recent videos, but wont load. Have to go to the home everytime to watch the newest video. And it wouldnt be a problem except it sometimes only has the some of the new videos. But for the most part if i cant find it in my sub box then i can find the newest video from 6 months ago on the individuals channel. Thank you for reading, and please I would love for this to get fixed soon, and im glad that the playlist deletion glick that doesnt get deleted got fixed.
Still has the quality-killing glitch. Otherwise, good.
by Ghostkid825 on 2013/08/23 06:22
I'm personally half-and-half on the newest update. I enjoy the multitasking, and how you can physically interact with the video. I'm not a particular fan of the new aesthetics (the new icon and addition of more white and a bit of red in-app), but that's more of a minor complaint. It also seems like a strange move to remove the Back button from the video viewing page, but I guess the people complaining about that somehow missed the short start-up tutorial about the new and simple way to leave a video page. What bugs me is that the problem with blurry videos is STILL not fixed. It seems to happen at random, and it's generally persistent once it starts for a particular video, no matter how many times you refresh it. (For those unaware, the video quality drops to something worse than 240p, and the frame rate drops to about 5-10 fps.) This is the only actual issue I can find with the app that REALLY needs to be fixed/updated. (However, adding in the ability to reply to comments is a good idea, as suggested by another review. If you have to choose between the two, though, PLEASE focus on fixing the quality glitch.) If this glitch actually gets fixed once and for all, you'll have a 5-star app.
SO SLOW AND RAGE INDUCING
by Tysonyoshi on 2012/10/23 01:25
The old one is much more better. This one does nothing but buffering 24/7 making me take an hour just to watch a five minute video. You actually consider this a product when it barley works?! Considering my homes internet connection already isn't the most fast this app video download speed is often slow bull and I (and other people) "general errors". Based off the look of this I don't have a feeling this won't be fixed for a long while. Another problem is that if you close the app (like remove it from the active apps) the video you were watching goes into your history and you have to watch it all over again unlike the old apps where it just keeps going if you do that. This needs a direct link to the main menu to get back to the front page since I'd rather not press the back button over and over again. And I highly doubt I could watch it over again if it takes a eternity for the video to skip to where I wanted it to. Another slowness problem is that after waiting awhile while the video buffers is that sometimes it jumps you back to the beginning of the video. All the anti-buffering techniques hardly work (like turning wi-fi or your device on and off) unlike the old app where it usually worked. The only good out of this that I can watch music videos now but we have VEVO app for that. Overall a ruined app from iOS 6 and slow overall.
Really?
by LordGandalf23 on 2015/01/01 18:29
This app has something wrong with it. It's not anywhere as good as it used to be. It's like all these updates are ruining the app more than helping it. For one, this app is crashing way more than usual. When I turn my iPod on its side to watch in landscape view, the app usually crashes. Same when turning it to portrait view. It also takes forever for landscape view and portrait view to work, if they work at all. Another thing it loves to do is exit out of the app when my iPod is shut off. Say I'm watching a video, I pause it and power off my iPod to go do something really quick. Then I come back and I'm at my home screen when I turn it back on. This can happen in a very short time. I think the shortest time it took for this to happen was maybe a few seconds. Not only does it take forever to start the app back up, find the video, and wait until it goes back to where I was at in the video (skipping takes to long since the buffering takes way to long and usually ends up in the app crashing) time and time again, but it's very annoying. And transitioning to different videos takes forever, like every other function in the app. Please, just get this fixed! I'm sure there are other people who have this problem, not just me. Please change it back. It was much easier before all these updates. Please!
Change it back!
by Omonkey 14 on 2015/12/28 06:04
I am very unhappy with the new layout. It does not fit my needs. My needs are very simple you have messed with them. You will not be forgiven until I get my old layout back. You know, the layout with the description of the video and the comments in separate columns. That layout gave me joy. That is what I was used to on my IPad. You are not fixing anything with the new layouts. I will now have to get friendly with a new one. It will take time to adapt but I guess I could do it. The problem you should be fixing is the constant reports of the app crashing. You don't need to change how the app looks every once in a while. I would say if you like to make these new layouts allow them to be made, but allow an option to let the user change back to its former layout. Do not take this power like an ad with constant notifications. I do not want it to be like my IPad; it enjoys notifying me whenever I am available to update it. I want the old layout back. It makes me sad. On a side note, you should use better photos for the advertising on the Appstore. They look grainy and make me uncomfortable. I will not thank you for your time because you are not forgiven until you change it back. Also, thanks for letting me write this to go to sleep. I must wake up tomorrow to shave so I can get to my favorite toy as soon as possible. Bye
Update is not worth your time.
by Kidomaru97 on 2013/08/22 18:04
The new update is not only terribly designed, and hard to navigate, but it's new "functionality" doesn't function well at all. It not only doesn't refresh the video when you leave (which in my terms, helped a lot when the video went blurry), but the new playlist buttons on the screen are (in my opinion) not welcome. When I use these, I happen to tap these icons and go on to the next video in the playlist. It also restarts the video when I switch back, forcing me to find my place if I don't remember. The only way to avoid this if you wish to check your time watched on the video, you have to click the very center of the screen only. Not only this, but where is my button option to add to favorites? And why is the video and/or ad caption removed from the screen? Why did you think this new like button, being much smaller than the first, as well as outside of the video, would be much better? And how does putting the youtuber's name on the bottom instead of the top make it more visible? And what on earth made you think this new system was better? The only good thing you honestly did, was add the video suggestion option in the video page. But even that wasn't necessary, as "What to Watch" allowed much better recommendations. If I didn't have to rate this, I would defiantly give it 0/5 stars. Just don't update it, you're better off.
Unnecessary Changes
by Greenjosh123 on 2014/03/18 04:49
I usually never write reviews but the update was so bad that I had to write one. In case you're used to the normal video layout, Google went ahead and changed it again. The pause button is now ON the video screen of where your watching the video. It also dims the screen while pausing/playing and the pause/play button shows every time you tap the screen. This makes it inconvenient for people who would just like to see what time they're at in their video or people who only use one hand to watch. And now the number of likes or dislikes are now shortened to using 'k' for the number or thousands. I don't see why Google is making such a step back from the play button being on the lower left to being where you happened to be looking at what content you are watching, or changing the perfectly fine numbers to be different. The playlist addition to the menu was a nice touch, though. Another thing I don't get is how the top comments work. Usually the first top comment should be the one with the most likes, but for some reason the VERY top comment is a couple scrolls down, but even then, there could be another comment with even more attention that you wouldn't know about. The first top comment usually only has about one or two likes. Overall this app used to be okay, but I'm starting to lose hope in Google "improving" their video service.
An unpopular opinion, apparently
by Paancaakes on 2013/09/03 09:36
I like what google has done with the recent changes, but I might be the only one from looking at the other reviews. I can't speak problems relating to bugs or crashing as I have experienced neither. It's worth noting that I have an iPhone 5 and therefore am probably using the most compatible device for a new update. I can speak to changes in UI and experience however and this is where the update shines. The back button is basically omitted in this update from what I can tell, but who cares? Now you swipe down to pull a video to the bottom right corner and swipe it left/right to close it. It's one more motion to a closed video than before and it adds minimal time. Also worth noting the video continues playing when swiped down, allowing for picture in picture, a nice unexpected addition. Beyond this the UI has been cleaned up and looks nicer and video playback seems improved. Videos continue to play at a lower quality than desired, but this is nothing new. The one thing missing in my opinion is support for sorting videos by date/length/rating/etc. Unless I missed these features it's an odd omission.
Flawed like the web page layout
by Rkcteddy on 2012/12/09 06:40
I have two main problems with this app. First is the channels listed under the Home Feed button. I have no clue what algorithm chooses what channel goes in what order, but it sure is inconvenient. It seem the channels I watch a lot are near the bottom, and the channels that rarely upload anything are near the top. And there's no way to fix this! There in some random order! There not in alphabetical, there not in an order of who uploads the most, there not in order of who has the most activity, I have no clue what it is! And when your subscribed to a lot of youtubers, it's hard to navigate to what channel you want to watch. Secondly, when you click a channel in this list, it immediately shows the activity, instead of the uploads. This is pointless! I want to watch what they upload, not see there latest comment on someone else's video! This shouldn't be pre-selected. And you would think, well just press the show uploads button beside that. Well when you go to another channel, it switches back to the activity section! So there's no way to go down the list of all the people you've subscribed to and quickly check what they've uploaded. Heres what you need to do to fix this app. 1. Have it where I can change who's where on the list of subscription. And 2. Show uploads when you click a users name, instead of showing there activity.
The new update has major issues
by adiadel on 2014/09/23 01:58
This has been the first time I've had major issues with this app. First of all, none of the videos load without selecting the image quality first... This gets annoying very quickly... I noticed this happening recently (pre iOS 8) when I would use AirPlay to stream to my Apple TV but now it's every video on each device every time-- why can't this be adjusted under settings as needed? On top of that, I tried to load a video a few minutes ago and I keep getting playback errors.... I can't get a single video to play at this point. I even restarted my iPad and my wireless router just to make sure it had nothing to do with my internet connection or my device... Also, the checkbox for sharing comments on Google+ doesn't always appear in the new update... However, in this case, the default should be that your comment does NOT get shared on Google+... I replied to a comment on a video a few days ago that was apparently shared on Google+ and I got an email thread of comments a million miles long each time another person replied to the original comment! I was so annoyed that I had to go back and delete my comment-- I honestly wish Google+ would just disappear forever but that's another story... Meanwhile, I hope they come up with a fix for all of these issues soon...
Many Problems I Have!
by ImBAckBro on 2017/01/30 02:43
I really wish I could rate this app lower. Please stop recommending Chris brown and Soulja boy feud videos to me! Stop recommending random videos of people that I'm not even subscribed to! When I type something into the search bar and search for other videos don't erase what I left typed in the search bar?! That used to be how it was then you messed it up! Please STOP recommending videos that I don't want to watch! If I'm not subscribed to the person then I do NOT want to see it! I don't want to see all these other annoyingly redundant and basic channels! I don't care about them! And stop trying to make me care! Don't recommend videos whose channels I am not subscribed to! Also don't post music videos for bands that I've never heard, like I've never listened to them, and I never want to do why would I want to watch their music videos?! If I watch a random video that does not mean that I'm going to watch a million other videos like that daily! What's the point of the NOT INTERESTED option if you just end up getting the same recommendations? Please add some sort of filter option where I can turn off recommendations because I swear that they NEVER interest me. They usually just upset me. I swear! Seriously!! Just because I watch ONE video from somebody's channel doesn't mean I'm going to want to watch their entire repertoire! If I want to I'll subscribe to them!
Could be better
by J10nbomb on 2014/07/01 14:40
I used to have a big problem with videos randomly dropping in quality, sometimes to completely unwatchable levels, until I realized I could avoid this by turning off auto video quality but I wish I didn't need to go and change from auto to 720p every time I watch a new video (it would be nice to have an option somewhere to choose what quality videos automatically open in or even if the app remembered what you set the last video to play in). Even more annoying is that links now go to the browser instead of opening in app. If I'm watching a video in the app and I click a link to another video or channel I want to continue using the app, not switch to chrome. I like that you can reply to comments now but the commenting is still shotty. You can only reply to an original comment, not to someone's response to a comment, and as other people have said some comments at the beginning of a chain of replies won't show making it difficult to follow a conversation being held in the comments of a video. I did like the design of the app before this last update when it showed how recently a video in your subscriptions was uploaded but small style changes I can get over. Im on an ipad 2 by the way.
I never write reviews, but this is awful.
by Almansrule on 2015/10/06 02:07
From a company like Google, this app is an absolute piece of trash. It has problems with AirPlay, as in it will break and show a "playback error" after buffering for too long, After that will refuse to continue playing any subsequent videos to the Apple TV once the app is switched out of, or the phone is locked until the app is restarted. The next problem is the fact that while the app may look pretty, it organizes information terribly, giving very little in the way of what your subscriptions are putting out. Another problem to do with subscriptions is that it reorders and removes them all the time, with no option to do it manually or disable this "feature". There is no way to organize subscriptions in folders like there is online, and overall the subscription experience is lacking. The final gripe that I have with this app is that it is slow, for no apparent reason the video will not begin to play, nor will any video until the app is restarted. This happens often as well. It's just an overall choppy and unpleasant experience. A lot of this may sound like nit picking, but if you use the app frequently this can make the experience unbearably slow, and besides this is Google, a company that I respect greatly, yet they release this garbage and deserve to be called out on it.
This isn't progress
by UnluckyBenny on 2016/09/12 04:19
What's with this update? Seriously. This update is just bad. You made the comment section much more complicated than it needed to be. Can't reply to a specific person in a comment thread (and if you can, I can't find the option) and to see the full comment you're taken to another page? That's a huge downgrade from the previous version. Now there are somethings you did good, being able to edit your comment is a feature I've been asking for a long time. And I also like the look of the comment section, but you also need to make more obvious the differences between the main comments, and the replies to those comments. Making the pictures of the users slight smaller isn't helping. The way the previous version did that was better. Maybe you can incorporate the way this version looks, plus being able to edit comments, to the way the last version worked. Having to open another page just to view an entire comment thread is just dumb honestly. It's also about time you give us the ability to play this app without having it open, it was a feature in one of the older versions of this app (if I remember correctly) and I don't see why it's no longer a thing.
Update
by Duckonajetski on 2013/09/06 21:37
The latest update makes the app's interface look much better and was intended to make it easier for users to search more quickly for their next video. However, there are a few "fixes" which I am not content with. First, on the feeds the videos do not show the number of views that they have accumulated. I must have taken this view counter for granted in the last version because I find myself wanting it back. Secondly, is a 'small' HUD annoyance in playlists. The arrows when watching videos in playlists are very predominant and are placed right in the middle if the screen. I find myself always accidentally hitting these arrows which gets extremely annoying. Lastly, the chat. In the previous version, the chat on videos was very easy to access as there were three tabs of information on each video: the video info, chat, and suggested videos. Now however, you need to click a link to open the chat. One more improvement for chat would be the addition of liking/ disliking. The mobile app has no support for this functionality as there is on a computer. Thank you for spending the time to read my consecutive criticism and I hope actions can be taken to fix these issues.
Really Google?
by Jon7797 on 2014/03/21 01:55
I loved this app, the only issues I had with the pervious version was the fact that I couldn't see how many likes a comment had and I couldn't reply to comments.. They fixed that in this update and I think they should keep that but I can't freaking watch any videos now because it doesn't seem to load more than 5 seconds of 780p every 10 minutes.... And why the unnecessary of the number of likes into, for example, 1K instead of 1,000? There's no need nor reason for that... And the issue many people don't like, the location of the pause button.. If I wanna pause my video I don't want the pause button smack-dab in the middle of the screen, if I accidentally touch the screen I have to then touch it again to be able to see my video, not to sound selfish and taking stuff for granted but it is inconvenient and that is what you're aiming for, right Google? In the next update, which I'm sure will be very soon, put the pause/play button back where it belongs and remove the unnecessary shortening of the thousands into K, also improve the speed, it's freaking slow on my internet that runs at 10-20MBPS... Last update had no problem streaming with that connection at that quality, thanks in advance for correcting your mistakes
Horrible Update
by Justanotherterribleapplol on 2017/02/11 02:37
Time for a refresh and there 10 second tap thing is so annoying. Although I wouldn't be able to live without YouYube, this update has made everything you do take longer and harder and be more complex. First, the comments have not been improved whatsoever (that was my #1 complaint from last time). They still haven't given back any of the functionality we had a few months ago. Next, the entire app seems pretty laggy, but espicially the comments section, which takes FOREVER for animations to occur and load. My last few complaints include (1) the speed of the previews of the videos loading on the home page. When you are scroll down, even if it's very slowly, you will notice that the videos don't load until you see them, so they'll be gray for the first .5-1 sec. It is very annoying for your eyes to see this, but you'll have to experience it in person to feel the full effect of frustration. (2) they've taken away the ability to slide between your home, hot, and subscriptions pages and they've put them all at the bottom. 👎👎 (3) The ram management is still terrible. (4) The entire UI is just clunky and gross and a major downdate, if you will, from last time... So... DO NOT UPDATE!
New update
by Goblahcuzthersnomorenicknames on 2015/08/25 21:29
I always come on here after every update to explain my difficulties, so here we go again. The slick/ thin look of the video at the bottom looks nice but it is a total nightmare, I try to rewind and I can't even touch it cause it's so small, so please we need the old one back. Also when I leave the app to check a text the whole video starts at the beginning which aggravates the crap out of me. I liked the old times where it would hold your spot, maybe take you back a few seconds but still it held your spot. I sometimes watch let's plays that are 1-2 hours long and when that happens it drives me insane and even if I leave my room to go to the bathroom and my phone falls asleep it does it. Not cool man not cool. I also really don't like the subscription box, it looks nice but it takes me forever to actually find something cause the icons are so big, what happened to just having us read it ... It was a lot better that way. All in all this is probably the worst update ever, sorry it just is. You guys are now focusing on looks instead of function which NO ONE CARES ABOUT LOOKS! We just want to watch videos that youtubers create. We want to watch art. But we can't if we get a message during a video... Sorry big rant this time ... Probably will be another for the next update so see you later.
To be honest
by Vlogs101 on 2016/09/22 00:22
I don't know how they came up with this update and then look at himself in the mirror and night and said yeah we did this update is crap I was going down to the comment section and I'm use like tapping it but now it automatically opens which takes more time to food and uses up more of my cellular data so they better figure something out unless they won't be paying another 499 on my cell phone bill this just doesn't make any sense to me why they would do that you need to be something that a lot of people watch all the time so for you to make an updated all phone types and only shoot one particular one because I think this was made more towards the Samsung side than the iPhone side for you to do that it just takes off a whole bunch of customers consumers of your products I just think that's the way that you Kaina run things because you can see the colors of Google and your little loading thing so I can tell the Google was a big part of this update and this update is crap google scrub update it definitely does not see Austin tags and you're getting a lot of heat from people about several things don't get why you don't all know completely changes the app but still you to still videos you diss really updated to a point where it's like I knew it for so long
What lacks in the new app
by Zelogrim 213 on 2013/03/20 20:54
Its no question as to how the video gets blurry after awhile in some vids also the sound gets choppy and sounds more bad so if you can please fix that in a new update also with a multitask like the old pre installed app was before i.o.s6 and a fixed loading speed with 3g and 4g when not connected to a internet source so playback errors would not happen alot while someone is in a certain location it would be greatly appreciated by youtubers viewers and so on to be able to do more within the app it would make everyone happy and would have others think twice about how they write new reviews from updates and new features it will make the general population of people who have the app love it more than now with what has been offered in updates and the app itself it will make the app more better than safari if these things were applied and it would waste less time trying to show a video of something funny or music etc… when the app itself has something better to show so please take the time to make the updates and take some time to consider what you can do to make this app turn from a badly reviewed one into a greatly reviewed app
not user friendly anymore :-(
by susanaram on 2016/11/17 04:20
i have an iphone 5s running ios 10 and these glitches have been happening for quite a few weeks now. like most people i run out of high speed data leaving me inching along on 3G, which would be manageable if the video loading didn't time out before it can even play. i noticed this when i drag down the vid to minimize it, the circular loading icon isn't there at the top of my screen next to my carrier label anymore. this forces me to either close out of the video, losing whatever buffering progress i had and try to play it again, or shut down and restart the app if it happens consecutively. the same thing happens with long 2 minute ads that play before the actual vid. the app will time out while it's buffering the ad, making me close everything and restart it. i would have no problem loading an ad if it was 30 secs or less because on restricted data speeds it is very inconvenient to play a longer ad. even if there is a "skip after 5 seconds" option, the app still won't play the ad until after it's halfway buffered. these are the main things keeping me from using the app more frequently and it is very frustrating as an avid video watcher. please fix them!
App is terrible
by Ragamorph on 2012/12/05 03:04
Update new version: Left at 1 star because my chief complaint was crappy video quality and its still there. Cool that they updated for iPhone 5 but the videos still go blurry or stop and load all the time. It's reduculous. It happens with 3G, 4g, LTE and WIFI. It doesn't matter the connection speed. Rarely do I get a video that I can actually see details in. Most are sharp for the first second then go fuzzy. Sometimes I get lucky and get 30 seconds of clear video before it goes out. Previous version Just absolutely horrendous. It's virtually unusable. Half the videos won't load and the ones that do either buffer forever, go to a definition that can equate to trying to open your eyes under water and see or they won't load except for 1 second at a time. I know apple and google are at war, but really, why would you torture the others' customers like this, I believe it's forbidden by the Geneva Convention. Seriously though, if you're going to make an app 1) update it and 2) listen to your customer reviews. I'd like to see this updated for ios6 and iPhone 5. You could also throw is a bone and make it'd UI match what people want. Just read other reviews. Yes I choose an apple device but, come on, I thought google was a better company than to put out a crappy app and not update it.
FIX IT
by Follow@food_is_yummay on IG on 2014/02/16 06:13
There are 4 lags that make the app basically worthless and annoying. 1. Randomly when I'm watching a video the quality will go from good to completely blurry and unwatchable. Skipping to other parts of the video to try to fix it can sometimes make the quality even worse! FIX IT! 2. Even when I have 3 bars of wifi, every half a second the video decides it's a "good" idea to waste my time and have it buffer for 5 minutes. Once again, skipping to other parts of the video works for about a second and then it continues to pause every half a second. In fact, it took me about 20 minutes to watch a video 2 minutes long because of this. FIX IT! 3. Whenever I click on a video, even when I have three bars of wifi, a message with some weird looking face comes up that says tap to retry. I end up tapping like 7 times before the video finally starts loading (which takes like 5 minutes btw!) 4. When I'm reading comments on a video and I do that tap to load more comments thing all the comments and suggested videos randomly disappear! Whenever I refresh, it just stays the same! These lags make the app horrible, useless, and annoying. I would rate it zero stars if I could. For whoever is reading this review DONT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! You're better off using Safari.
Good app
by elvis1114 on 2017/03/13 00:37
I've been watching music vids for about 7-8 years now and over the past 2 years I started watching various live feeds from everything going on in the world. I don't like the commercials they added so I mute. The past two months The app has gotten worse with its censorshlp. First certain live music disappeared. Then certain subjects political subjects were banned. The past couple days I have noticed small independent bloggers and vid creators have come under heavy pressure from app creators. Vids are being pulled for all sorts of reasons but you can still watch 1,000s of rap vids with horrible racist content and satan worshipping snuff films from the 70's without even looking for it. I'm really starting to hate this new version that take away users ability to share vids due to subject matter. We can share vids of people being decaputated and burned alive but it's not permitted to be pro president. Thanks for taking the greatest app ever and turning it into just a good app and going down hill to the point of soon being replaced by a free platform for all.
Seriously Google?
by Kelso228 on 2014/03/22 00:47
Hmmm...where to start with the new update? Oh, how about we start with the giant pause button in the middle of the screen. Honestly, what was Google thinking putting that dumb pause/play button directly in the middle of the screen. It covers the video, and it makes the video dim every time you click on the screen. Some people just want to look to see how much time is left to the video. Well, you ruined that Google. Also, the channel pages have been wrecked. Some people spent a lot of time making a cool banner for their viewers to see. Well, Google decided to cover it up with the profile picture. And to add to that, when you scroll down on a channel, it scrolls the banner up, so you can't see it. Wow Google, worst update ever. Plus, I still can't figure out how to reply to comments, because you have to have a stupid Google+ account. I tried getting one, still couldn't reply to any comments. Way to make it harder for the users. So thanks Google for making this worse (if you can't tell I'm being sarcastic) As you can tell, no one like this new update so in the next one, change everything back to it's old layout and you'll get more people to download the app. Please please please fix the annoying new stuff you put in this.
YOU HAD ONE JOB!
by Ubedaman on 2014/09/27 00:29
Why does this app have such a hard time playing videos? I mean that's what it's suppose to do right? I've noticed that each update makes the videos less watchable. Now playback errors are as common as ads(which is very common). I can't tell you how many times I've gotten a playback error within the first minute of the video. And if it's not a playback error it's the video freezing while the audio continues. When this happens you can't just rewind the video a little you have to restart it again which means another 30 second ad...Once you finally get the video to work it's very very very rare that it will stay at 720p because it constantly falls way below that. Some videos will just refuse to play without buffering every 3 seconds. 9/10 videos have a ad and only about two of them allow you to skip them after five seconds so with all the problems I just mentioned you spend most of your time watching ads. Now playlist still only allow you to remove one video at a time which is very annoying if you want to remove multiple videos at a time. I know no one over at Google really cares about these problems but seriously someone needs to fix them.
It's really bad...
by Juliza A. on 2015/07/02 16:23
I reviewed this app about a year or two ago, and I definitely needed to address an issue and personal opinions I'm having since the recent update. When I moved the app to see my video in a widescreen view, the video completely cleared out and seconds later the app crashed. This has been the only problem I'm having at the moment, but it's still an annoyance having the app crash and video not play when it's just been updated. Personally, I don't like the layout being on the bottom, I like the "view channels" tab on the of your subscriptions videos, but I ran a lot smoother when the layout of playlists were on the left and side. Another issue/personal opinion I have is with the tabs that used to be above the video. They're completely gone now, and I don't know If this was removed or if mine just isn't showing, but I can't save, share, nor check suggested videos from the one I'm currently watching. I have to go back to the channel I got the video from and save it from there. I hope there will be an update soon because the concept was good, but the functionality of the app seems to have backtracked and accessibility has definitely plummeted...
Never again!
by TheD1VA on 2015/11/18 04:21
What the heck??? You want to charge $14 now for a still unfixed app! It's even worse now, it doesn't pop up with my recommended favorites then the advertised ones or vice versa even. Fav list you have to pay for. The video-sound syncing is off now. Rebooting video &/or app if I have to pause for a minute. I can't believe you don't listen to your customers! Please at least give a revision to go from the white/red version back to the red/white! As buggy as that was, it was a dream compared to this! Don't update if you don't have to!!! While you rake in billions or trillions of $$$ why make us pay more??? Is it less buggy? NO! Due to this alone I cancelled this, and anything related to google in any shape or form! Going to join a "you-tube-google" boycott until you at least give us the option of reverting back to more stable versions! And should I need a "tube" fix? I will pay a 1 time 1-3$ fee for an app that allows that to be viewed in an easier format! You'll never get the google+ fee again, nor the $14 fees requested for you tube EVER! I have a working antiquated version on an equally antiquated computer, that I will enjoy all the same without the ads IF I ever decide I need to watch but til then I am joining the google services boycott 4ever!
Bad Recommendations
by Toughchic236 on 2016/07/08 21:25
No matter how many times I click 'not interested' in news, sport, and irrelevant videos they STILL show up in my recommendations. I have absolutely no interest in sports or the news, and I have never watched a sports or news video. On top of that, videos I've already watched show up in recommendations. It also takes forever to click 'not interested' on the twenty-some videos in my recommended list. It would by much better if I could click all of the videos I don't care about, and then tap 'non interested' so they all disappear quickly. I also have problems with bugs. For example, sometimes the description, likes and dislikes will disappear on a video no matter how many times I refresh. The quality on videos is also crap. Every video should be able to be in HD quality. The app will also crash for no reason. On top of that, sometimes my videos will pause for no reason or skip ahead. You truly need to fix this app. I love watching videos, but the app is terrible. No matter how many times people complain about the constant updates, reappearing bugs, bad layout, etc it's never fixed!! Listen to your fans and FIX THE APP!!!
Was 5 stars, is terrible
by Try Standing on 2013/08/26 06:16
I loved the update for an hour-- then, and ever since, I've been having continuity problems. Several minutes into any video a varietal playback problem occurs, one of: skipping minutes of the video (this one comes WITH the other problems, always); suddenly blurry quality as though somebody suddenly fogged up a lense and the fog is irremovable; sometime in tandem with previous, but more common an occurrence is the cutting out of sound. This problem can not be fixed by reinstallation, closing out the app and trying again from scratch, nor even a device reboot. It persists, and reoccurs every time I reload any part of any video, and if the video is long enough, one or all of these problems will happen, assuredly, at least a couple of times if I'M persistent. Because of these issues, I have been forced to use the less awesome mobile-version website through another app. My biggest problem is that I can't just continue watching my video! These things happen without fail and I have finally discontinued my use of this app-- please fix this problem, NOBODY would want to have to deal with this. I'm fairly surprised no other reviews are about this, seeing as this is a completely new device and All.
Scroll and 10 Second Advance
by 4 da skins on 2017/02/12 23:02
First off, the 10 second idea itself is not bad. I like the idea of rewinding back a few seconds. The terrible implementation is the double tapping of one entire half of the screen. See, when I'm a little bored if the video is repetitive or something, I rapidly tap the right side of the screen just to see the buttons appear and disappear. Now when I do that it advances like a minute forward, which is horribly annoying. What would fix this is having the two functions as small buttons like the pause/play or the previous/next video. This is feature needing fixing the most. Second off, on short videos or if I want to re-watch a video, I, as a normal person would, scroll back the video to the beginning. The problem is that with this update, it's nearly impossible. The scroll bar takes up the whole screen length when in miniature mode, meaning that I can't reach the far left side. This is horribly annoying as well. This then forces me to rewind to a bit after the beginning and then having to use the 10 second feature which is already something I've complained about. Overall, this update is terrible and I regret not reading the reviews before updating.
Needs some fixing
by amanda_noelle2010 on 2012/10/02 15:36
Overall I like the look and the setup and how it's similar to the Facebook app. However, before on the other app, when wi-fi was enabled, the video played in amazing quality. Now the videos stay in a more pixelated quality regardless. It only loads so many comments and if you're looking for one that happened over an hour ago on one like say...the terrible call made during the Greenbay Packers vs. the Seattle Seahawks, then you're screwed. You don't have the ability to click on a user's name from their comment, or better yet, even their comment if you wanted to go to a link they provided. You also cannot like or dislike or really do anything pertaining to any comments made on the video. Does have more such results than the original app, though. There are some videos that only showed up on the desktop version, and if you tried to do this on the phone, it wouldn't work without flash. This app finds that video. For example the OFFICIAL music videos actually show up as the top result for songs on this one. I swear the old one was ONLY the "alternate" results. Just needs some improvement!
AWESOME, but one big problem...
by awesomenes42 on 2015/03/03 22:12
I use this app literally every single day! There's nothing wrong with the app besides some videos taking a long time to load here and there, but as you saw in the title, there's one big problem with it! (Or, at least in my opinion anyway.) like I said, some videos will take a while to load, but this is what leads to this big problem most of the time it happens. I use the app for so long during my free time, and after using it for about 45 minutes to an hour or so, the next video says it couldn't load! I always keep hitting the the screen to refresh it, but half a second after, it says the same thing! Sometimes it won't load because I lost Internet connection to my home for some reason, (not sure why that happens), but even when I get back on Internet, it still won't load any videos! The only way I can get it to start working isn't by sliding the page up, but by sliding off, (if you know what I mean), my phone! The only problem with that is the iPhone takes a while to turn back on completely! Please fix this problem! It's driving me insane!!!
Horrible version
by Vince Twu on 2015/09/22 15:31
1. Scrolling through subscribed channels means going horizontally, which is the shortest side of the phone. Can't see as many in one view unless you click the one tab to open them up in a whole new screen. This is less intuitive, not as convenient as the old way, and an ugly design. 2. User account gets its own page? I don't upload videos like thousands of other users, and this page is a waste. The only thing useful on there is the subscribed playlists. Wait, why is that in my account and not with the other subscriptions? Doesn't make any sense. 3. In the old version you could swipe to the right and pull out a menu/list of everything you need, like all your subscriptions and playlists and settings, and you could scroll through this, while the main focus of the app was on still the videos. It was nice and it felt like an advanced feature that more apps started adopting, seemingly after you introduced it (Facebook for example? Maybe? Can't remember exactly) but it seemed like you had something cool that worked really well, and it was intuitive and quick to use. Now everything takes more steps just to browse and easily see the videos I'm interested in.
Great App But It Can Be Greater!
by Tyrell.Rawls on 2012/09/24 18:02
This is an amazing app. I love how user-friendly it is and I also love the layout. But, there are a few things that I believe will help improve this app and increase positive feedback, which in turn will increase downloads. Firstly, I think you should allow users to pause and play videos/audios by using their Apple headset. That way they could quickly pause or play a video/audio more rapidly. Another improvement that people would enjoy is the ability to play videos/audios in the background while navigating in other apps on your iPhone. This would be awesome! Lastly, it will be terrific if you could somehow enable users to scroll through a video/audio at different speed/tuning rates so that they could accurately get to the part of the video/audio that they desire most. With the slight modifications added onto what you already have, I would rate you guys 5 stars. Like I said before you guys did a great job with this app and I know you want it to be greater. Hope my feedback could be of some assistance. Take care. - Ty Rawls
Are you even trying anymore?
by ohsnapitsmads on 2015/07/27 15:52
I have so many issues with this app and then I see there is an update for it. Awesome! Now my problems will be fixed. NOPE! It did absolutely nothing. What is the point of an update if you don't fix anything? My main issue is that when I watch a video it will be fine until halfway through and then the audio continues but the video starts at the beginning. I pause the video thinking the video just needs to catch up, but it doesn't work. Now I'm pretty much watching the same video but with different audio. I fast forward the video, and it's still back at the beginning but with the audio from later. Also, let's say I am watching a video that is 6:20 long and let's say the audio/video is acting up again. Not only is the video and audio completely off, but now the video is exceeding 6:20! It keeps counting up now. At this point, I don't know what is going on and everything is screwed up. I don't even think you people bother to read these feedbacks. If you did, we wouldn't have issues all the time! Maybe you should take the time to read through the feedback so you can fix what needs to be fixed. These "updates" obviously are not doing anything.
Like the new features but it's broke now
by Jgorinac on 2017/02/13 00:33
All these people complaining about the 10 second interval feature need to stop requesting it's removal, I love it. Make it an option if anything. Main complaint is the comment section, I should be able to scroll while in a draft. I want to reference specific statements or content in the feed and I can't once I start typing. It's by far the worst decision on their end and I'm not using google plus for it! Also a notification never takes you to the reply it was notifying you about and your comments are on top so you simply can't find it. It's seriously flawed Reason for this post is the issue at hand currently is the app will no longer play any video. I get the message something went wrong try again later. I've forced closed the app, restarted my phone, and erased and reinstalled the app and the issue remains. I went to the site in safari and I can load those same videos. It was very strange given I was using it and it crashed then after the crash it would never load content again. Having erased the app and it still remaining leaves me with no other troubleshooting options.
Rough Time
by The Myth - YouTube on 2015/06/08 14:15
I've not had any chance to review the app until now. I love the app, it's basic functions and all but it's just not what it could be. For one there should be a way to check our inbox for messages or comments so we can be up to date. I know we could use Safari for that on our iPhones, but it would make it so much easier. I've had a problem recently where I click on a video, I change the quality (I have to every time even though I've used the same quality every time) and the video starts loading, as in the gray bar ticks across the bottom of the player, and all the while the video has not started playing. It does this for 1 minute videos where the video has been fully loaded then it won't play for another 20 seconds or so and once it starts playing, the video player acts like it needs to load the rest of the video by the gray bar loading while I'm watching which confuses me as I waited a minute or so thinking it was loading then it just stops and starts the video and starts loading it again. This app needs some bug time adjusting.
It's ok but I could be better
by Fhvhfdcbhbjbubxrnig on 2014/12/20 07:20
I like some of the new features they have added in the update like being able to go back to a previous video but I have a couple of problems with this app. 1. Rewinding is horrible and every time I try to rewind it will pause and then I'll try to play it and it won't play. 2. Replying to comments is a difficult task. 3. It will quit out of the app randomly and when I turn my phone off it'll quit out, watching a video and want to go to full screen and back to normal it'll quit out, buffering it'll quit and I'll lose the video I was watching. And 4. Way to many ads, it'll be an ad on every video, when I can't sleep and I put on some quite relaxing music I turn my volume up and then the add comes on and I freak out and hit myself in the face like 20 times. And to all those people saying 'there's nothing wrong with the app it's just like 2% of people with bad experiences with that app writing reviews' no stop that there's a lot of people with bad experiences with that app just because you didn't have one doesn't mean almost everyone didn't…so shut up
A decent replacement, but a sidegrade at best.
by Ratchet77 on 2012/10/01 17:29
This version is much prettier to look at and operates more like the site itself, making videos easier to find. It's also nice to have videos that don't end themselves when they're over, and more development on checking your subscriptions. However moving to different parts of videos can be difficult at times as the scrubbing bar does not respond. Videos also opt to drop their quality on their own should they fail to load fast enough, which is irritating as I'd rather just wait than stare at a low-FPS blur. And for those that made use of it, this one no longer overtakes the audio channel. That means no more playing videos, then closing the phone and double-tapping the home button to resume them with just audio, which saves battery immensely. I usually used this method to listen to Retsupuraes while at work... not anymore I guess. Overall, a decent app, but would much rather see the return of the old one along side this to give the people an option, or at least feature adaptation of the old app to this one.
Recent problems
by me in Alabama on 2015/04/15 00:35
I have used this app for quite a while without many problems but recently this app has stopped working almost completely. It freezes up constantly and when I try to play videos, there is a black screen every single time and the video never shows. The audio works sometimes. I have restarted my iPhone, deleted the app, and re-downloaded it but this problem still exists. Even before these problems, if I fast forward or rewind during a video it buffers and freezes and I end up having to exit the app and restart. I have also had an extremely annoying problem where it won't let me lock my iPhone with a video playing. Now I cannot go jogging and listen to music with earphones because it won't let me play it in the background on the lock screen! It used to let me do this and I don't know what happened. The constant freezing and black screen has only been happening in the past week. Everything is up to date and this could be a result of a recent software or app update, I don't know. This problem NEEDS to be fixed!!! I cannot even watch videos anymore.
Gets worse and worse...
by HamsterJuice on 2014/09/06 02:59
With every single new update I've watched this stupid app just get worse and worse. Starting off with the small things: suggested channels are completely irrelevant to my interests. If you try to watch one video from a channel, well, then you must want to watch all of them, so now the videos are all part of a playlist which maximizes itself once the the videos you didn't want to watch start. Comments seem to be in no particular order, and sometimes when scrolling through you get stuck in some kind of weird loop where you see the same 10 or so comments over and over. Onto the big things, the app is ridiculously unstable and crashes constantly. On your 'What to Watch' page, they got rid of room for content from the channels you actually enjoy watching so they can shove ads in your face and suggest some Minecraft channels for you to watch. Even if you've never played the game and aren't subbed to any gaming channels. I would definitely recommend this app to people who enjoy watching ads and videos that have nothing to do with their interests, assuming they are actually able to watch them, considering the crashes.
Almost Broke My Phone
by Nice Going YouTube on 2016/01/06 06:01
He's how it went ok, I was just searching threw my subscription box and I clicked on a video. It sounds ok right? Nothing wrong at all. Until it took a bit to load and the video popped up and I could only see half of the screen on my phone so I could barely see what I was watching. Then the rest of the screen was completely black. It was very laggy and glitchy and it didn't let me back out of the video or press the home button. Then I tried restarting my phone and that didn't work. So it turned off but it would let me turn my phone back on, nothing was working and my phone was completely off and wouldn't turn on. At this point I didn't know what to do. Just a reminder it's 2:00 in the morning and I'm not going no where. So I tried waiting until my phone died so I can charge it and maybe it will turn back on but no. It ain't happening. So I waited around 15 mins and had to hold the home button and the power button for 15 secs and then it restarted my phone. Now I am happy that I can finally look at my beautiful phone and not a black screen. Surprised you've read this far, but thanks for reading. I just wanted to put this out there.
Terrible...
by Anthony221121 on 2015/08/17 03:49
This app is terrible. It's slow, it crashes, there's no multitasking, weird spot for the play/pause button since new update, no annotations, you can't choose quality on cellular networks, even over LTE which is the same speed as my WI-FI network, and during every video I watch the pixelation happens, ON A 80 MBPS WIFI NETWORK SPEED! Also on the menus it randomly sorts your subscribers so it is hard to find who you are looking for if you have a lot. Also, I really hate the positioning of the forward and back buttons when watching a playlist. I always tap them on accident and it's very annoying. Oh yeah and one last thing, they took out the scroll to top feature so If you were scrolling down to view the comments and want to look back at the description, you have to manually scroll all the way up. This needs a MAJOR update. Just terrible... Why google... Why... EDIT: Hey they released an update with more bugs! Now when you are in the middle of watching a video, the video randomly goes to the beginning and the audio continues. The only way to fix it is to completely close the video and open it again. Great. Thanks for providing more bugs Google.
...really, Google?!
by RagingBattles on 2015/10/13 04:08
"Why?" Is my only question. The app was great before. I could be watching a video while scrolling through my subbed channels and look at my history and channel without having to exit an entire video. Who do you think you're impressing? Because whoever it is, you've failed them. The colors are blinding, there's TONS of unneeded space and the overall design is lazy. I could've come up with a better one. The dropdown menu was great, as stated above, and the interface was much more user friendly. I cringe every time I see an update and hope you fix the problems. But no. "Bug fixes" and "full iOS 9 compatibility" is all I get. Don't even get me started on the crashing! I feel like you haven't been to the review section in a while, because your current rating is 1 and a half stars. You went to one of the best apps on the market to one of the worst and I doubt you even care. This has been going on for far too long and you need to listen to us. Change the app back. Make it good again. I'm tired of uninstalling and reinstalling to get the old version back and I'm sure everyone else is, too. So just do everyone a favor and CHANGE IT BACK.
Can see more potential
by Southern Fox on 2012/09/20 15:47
I would like if this had a history function so if I had to cut a video or two short, then I could go back and watch it. If it does, then it's really out of sight. Also, if it had the ability to view the youtuber's inbox. I'm getting too many spam videos and also respond to messages people send me or comment on their comment. And maybe, the ability to upload videos from the phone. Although better (using the term loosely) than the old built-in app, it needs a few more tweaking. But overall positive aspects is: That I can see ALL the people I'm subscribed to, and not just the hand full that the built-in app gave me (that's big to me). The pull down to update the video feed is needed, I hated having to go back and forth between videos or subscriptions to see new things. It's fairly quick to load up the people's video pages. I'm only having small problems so far, but I'm glad I downloaded this app. Because the iOS 6 update removed the old built-in app for me.
PLEASE FIX BLURRED VIDEO QUALITY
by Alpha 5000 on 2014/01/23 15:17
I for one love this app but it's frustrating and very annoying to see video quality degrade like this does. On my iPhone 4S it can go from super clear to where it's useless to even watch a video the way it blurs out which makes NO scenes to me to degrade a video quality to where it renders it useless. I always have to go to safari watch it there instead but much rather watch from the app while it's working right and ultra clear. I've downloaded update after update hoping it's an update to the my particular problem but always for some reason gets ignored. I assume this isn't an isolated issue? Please fix with next update. I can handle a little quality degradation but not when it's so blurry it hurts my eyes to even watch a video and can't make out anything on the video which all it's good for is listening to the sound which btw also goes down in quality but anyway please fix this and I'll give it 10 stars if I had that option but 5 for sure. Thanks
