Ads interrupt videos; this is garbage
by Peripeteian on 2015/08/05 02:14
Title says it all. Ads interrupt playback. Also you cannot choose to listen to audio only anymore, and you have to keep the app in the foreground. Screw, screw, screw the consumer! Uninstall this app and have some integrity
Don't get it!!!!!
by Steer showgirl on 2015/08/05 02:12
It's a total waste of time, space, and not to mention it has ruined my device....?????? I tried to make and account and it was spastic to the point where I had to shut down my device just to get back to the home screen. Now I can't even make it through a commercial without it buffering and closing out. Gee Google, first a crappy app and now this. You have really outdone yourselves.
Seriously YouTube people! Come on!
by Ginnymareestewart on 2015/08/05 02:09
There has been many a time, where I've wanted to listen to song while doing something else, but can't because if I find that if I leave the YouTube app, the song quits playing! And that right there boils me hotter than satan! I would love for just once, being able to jam out to Megan Trainer's, All about that bass, while pinning instructions on "how to make some awesome dolphin cupcakes" on the Pinterest app. But as I've mentioned before, you can't... 😡 So please YouTube people, remove this dark cloud of a flaw, and replace it with some sweet sunshine, which in turn would make my day just grand! Thanks a bunch. -Anonymous. 😉
How?
by Waffledog450 on 2015/08/05 01:57
The app has gotten worse since the update
Subscriptions
by Booshida on 2015/08/05 01:47
I don't know if it is just me but my subscriptions tab won't load at all. All the other parts load but the subscriptions part just shows as a loading screen or "tap to retry". FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE!!
Uh
by Kaiya😍😍 on 2015/08/05 01:25
Okay so I was watching a video and it was almost over and then while the people were talking it went back to another part of the video 😕 and when I close the app for a second and go back it was hard to make the screen back to normal. Please fix it Jesus
It has some issues but it's great
by heatherk428 on 2015/08/05 01:23
This is really great but there is some issues like when the video starts in the middle of the recording session or when I bought a movie it will say "You have to Buy This To Watch" so I couldn't watch even when I refreshed it. But it's one of my favorite of all apps.So yea
Problematic
by Me gustan la pupusas on 2015/08/05 01:21
The videos load but won't play after I leave the app and come back
Tbh
by Bæsic on 2015/08/05 01:16
I see a lot of reviews saying this app is glitchy and doesn't work well yet I have no problem at all 😂 I think most of the people complaining just have janky phones that need to be fixed 💀 I use this app 2-3 hours per day and have yet to encounter any issues (at least on the iPhone version) 😌 here and there it might freeze but most of the time that's because my phone has overheated or can be solved with simply restarting my phone (something that should be done regularly tbh)
Awful!
by JessicaPimenta on 2015/08/05 01:13
There's always some bug or a problem.
Okay
by Waldo667 on 2015/08/05 01:13
Recently my Subscriptions wouldn't load and it says "tap to retry" but it never loads but every other tabs loads fast and the videos are loading fast , please fix the the subscription tab
my video wont upload
by Herrman8985479)5 on 2015/08/05 01:09
usually i can upload a video with no problems from the app but for some reason today it just says pending upload. but doesnt upload??? my videos have never said that when i uploaded them what the heck
Love it!!!!!!👍😄😄😄
by perrze on 2015/08/05 00:53
This is an excellent application.
I'm confused
by '~*~*~*~*~*~*~' on 2015/08/05 00:49
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY BELOVED? Subscriptions is still NOT the first thing to pop up and I feel as if I will now clumsily change what video I am on more than before. Please, please bring back a more popular (older) setup
Is good
by Bye tac nyan! on 2015/08/05 00:38
Good except that you can't get rid of or edit playlists besides from putting new videos on there. 5/5
Good app HUGE flaw
by Dan 31L on 2015/08/05 00:21
For the most part the app is amazing! I don't know if it's just me but for some reason every time I try to watch a video the screen turns black PLEASE!!!! fix this YouTube used to be so good but now I can't enjoy it because the screen is always black
Uhhhhhhh
by friendlyyoutuber on 2015/08/05 00:05
I love this app and all, but it would be really cool if I could see the real number of views my videos have gotten, and the comments?? This is so frustrating because I'd really like to be able to respond to my subscribers!
Okay
by 12816wow on 2015/08/04 23:52
I have just recently had a problem where all of the sudden, the video will start over again when I'm in the middle of watching it. When it starts over, the time on the video stays the same but the video starts over. For example, if I was 3 minutes into watching a video and the video suddenly restarted, the video would keep playing at 3 minutes but the actual film and Audio starts over again from the beginning of the video. Hopefully I'm not the only one experiencing these problems and it will be fixed soon.
Just why
by 117419618681 on 2015/08/04 23:21
Took down my videos

The captions are messed up
notifications are way too late
by ❤️💕✨ on 2015/08/04 22:56
When i put notifications on for different youtubers, the notification comes in really late. Its useless if it comes in late bc by the time i do get the notification, i already finished watching the video. Please fix this.
unable to shuffle playlists
by Jonathanbel2018 on 2015/08/04 22:28
I don't know why but I am now not able to shuffle the videos on the playlists. Can you please fix this issue?

by Butter Apple249 on 2015/08/04 22:26
Youtube is just broken on mobile,for example sometimes i rotate the screen and suddenly i cant tap on anything,also when is the offline play function coming to US/UK?
Ok but FIX THE VIDEO/AUDIO BUG
by TitanicThomas on 2015/08/04 22:14
Now this is a good app if you want to go see videos on your phone and not the computer but the thing that is making me rate the way I am rating is we THERE IS A BUG WITH THE VIDEOS. Now I have had this for a year and well a year back this was not happening well now it is so when this is BUG is fixed I will rate if differently and so will others but until then it will have to be this way. For now.
Incredible Update!!!😃👍🏿
by Zombie killing machine890 on 2015/08/04 22:08
Thank you for fixing the bugs now I can comfortably watch my favorite pornographic vids from my favorite subscriptions.
WHAT HAPPENED???
by HarryPotterLover162 on 2015/08/04 21:59
Okay YouTube was my favorite. All the sudden today, I started getting bugs. The comment section was gone and all my favorite videos I couldn't watch. They all said, this video needs to be approved. Okay, inappropriate content I guess? Hmm but Ashdubh never swears. Well forget about it, must be a bug. But where's the comment section? Whatever I guess. So then I saw a video I like. (I probably watched it like 10 times) this video needs to be approved. Okay, what's going on? So I deleted and got YouTube again. Okay so I signed back in and saw that ash, Stampy everyone like that made a new video. I clicked on ash first. What? He didn't make a new video! That's yesterday's! Okay I'm getting angry now okay LionMaker THAT VIDEO WAS MADE LIKE A MONTH AGO! SQAISHEY? THAT WAS MAKE 2 DAYS AGO! Okay please let Stampy be okay! NO! THAT VIDEO WAS MADE 4DAYS AGO! Please fix the bugs YouTube. I loved your app but WHAT HAPPENED???
I want speed control
by StaticCode on 2015/08/04 21:58
The app is nice and all, but having speed control would be nice. But knowing that companies dont read reviews, I guess I just wasted my time.
Nope
by Jph150 on 2015/08/04 21:56
The app won't even open anymore.
Sneaky snakes
by Big.McLargeHuge on 2015/08/04 21:40
Besides the glitches and orientation problems the app developers have found ways to make this app worse. When looking at YouTube through the mobile site it automatically opens up the YouTube App. This would be all fine and dandy if the YouTube app could play music through the iPhone's "control menu". You are not sneaky, Google. I just decided to delete the app instead.
I hate it!!!
by Jfjjfhfhdkdbf on 2015/08/04 21:36
When I'm watch a video that's ok but when I want to go watch another video it just won't let me it's as if it frozen it won't let me go another where when I touch the screen so I have to redownload it. It's starting to get annoying I don't know why I update it just got horrible please make a fix it.
Just why?
by Sjs120797 on 2015/08/04 21:33
So the update said "bug fixes" and now I'm convinced all you did was add more bugs to it. Every day I try and watch a video but it wont rotate, then when it finally rotates midway through a video the screen won't let me access anything; I can't pause, I can't rotate the screen, it is so frustrating and looking over these other reviews it's not just me, fix your sh*t YouTube.
Too complicated/not user friendly
by Miguellito on 2015/08/04 21:32
They keep changing the format, it's not user friendly keeps asking for my login finally after login in, still can't see the comments on the videos.
Hdhdh
by Groan than on 2015/08/04 21:30
You guys need to update the app you can't watch videos right now
Help
by Gkhvt on 2015/08/04 21:27
Since the last update I haven't been able to watch an videos and I can't catch up on my miss videos
cmon bruh
by ThaBoii on 2015/08/04 21:22
anytime I leave the app and come back to my video, the video will start over but it won't start over time wise, just actual video wise.. yall need to fix bruh
Problems
by Funnycat01 on 2015/08/04 21:00
Lately, I have been having some problems with this app. One of those problems involves orientation issues. Whenever I change the orientation of my device, the audio continues to play but the video itself freezes. Because of this I have to continually replay the video. The other problem is that occasionally when I am watching a video, the screen goes black, and the video starts to play over. Along with this, the audio still continues from where it was originally. I thought the last update was supposed to fix these problems but it hasn't.
Really Google?!?!
by TjcrelatableHD on 2015/08/04 20:57
So glitchy for ever now. But then after the newest update, I can't even watch a video!! Seriously, are you even trying? My phone freezes when I try to, and I'm on an iPhone 6. Seriously, you need to design a new YouTube app from scratch. Do you even read your reviews?!?! If you listened to your customers, you would not have this problem! Stupid stupid Google only caring about stupid Google+.
Super buggy
by Crazynuget on 2015/08/04 20:39
This app has too many bugs to be great. With all the bugs, there are just so many issues, it's just annoying to use.
-_-
by Gjtckj on 2015/08/04 20:22
Every time I try to create a channel it just goes back to the home screen of the app like nothing happened
Don't know if it's a recent error...
by soandsosaysthis on 2015/08/04 20:20
But the app no longer works for me on my 5S. I use the app all the time to have background music or noise while I carry through chores or errands. The video and the audio desync mentioned in other reviews was already inconvenient, but I could work around it. Very recently, and I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced it, but the app will load all of my subscribed channels and recognize specific video content and comments, but fail to load the ads and videos themselves. Imagine a black loading screen where a video should be with everything else loaded underneath said loading screen, and you've essentially recreated my YouTube experience lately. I've logged out of accounts and even went as far as re-installing the app, but nothing I do will allow YouTube to function like... Well... YouTube. Again, I don't know if it's just me or if it's a YouTube related issue and not specific to this app, but the bottom line is that it does not work. Going along with the other reviews, I would recommend either waiting for an appropriate fix or consult a different app for your online video streaming perusal, especially if you use this kind of a site as much as I do.
Problems
by Marcoandfrankiegaming on 2015/08/04 20:14
Me and my friend have a YouTube channel. And this app always has problems. Saying that you don't have a channel and stuff like that. Sometimes the app even stops running.
I LOVE YouTube...BUT...
by Jason bluflyp on 2015/08/04 20:09
YouTube is a great app and I really appreciate the hard work that brings us this gift, but these days, the app had gotten awfully enraging lately due to its main issue: 😡 It glitches almost everyday. Every. Single. Day. What the heck. Do something about it! I've experienced more rage then ever when my screen is stuck froze with a quarter size video playing. Thanks.
New Update is broken
by Anonymous3.0 on 2015/08/04 19:56
What annoys me is that there are thousands of people who YouTube isn't working for them and then there's that one guy whose like,"it works for me, everyone else is a liar and a hater." Listen, the YouTube app doesn't let you comment, or reply, or like. When you rewind it, the audio doesn't sync. The app constantly crashes. And now it takes a lot longer to load a video. The newest update screwed the app. Someone else needs to make a YouTube app cuz this one doesn't work anymore.
ONE SUGGESTION:
by GTOaky on 2015/08/04 19:56
It would be cool to have the speed adjustment feature as available on desktop computers. I often use that feature to get through videos faster
Safari and app
by Govannak on 2015/08/04 19:37
Every time I try to open YouTube on safari it opens the app even tho I am wanting to open the safari page not the app! It is annoying especially when I am trying to connect YouTube to my tv off of my iPhone! I get so annoyed and every time I have to delete the app and reinstall it which is super annoying YouTube fix this now! Plz!
Great organization, but please improve convenience
by Kitty🐯 on 2015/08/04 19:17
I really like the way the sidebar is arranged because it shows all your playlists and also subscriptions, much like the format seen on the computer. However, when watching a video, it gets annoying sometimes when adjusting the volume for it, especially if you are leaning your phone against something. If you could format the volume adjuster like how it is on Safari, that would be great.
I accidentally deleted it and can't get it back
by Sports kid 😜😀 on 2015/08/04 19:09
I was messing around with it and deleted and I can't get back and I have been looking to see if it is a glitch or not and I still can't get it back. And I liked this app a lot I used this app the most out of a lot of apps
Great App but views
by Aaron15MC on 2015/08/04 19:02
This app is perfect others just complain, but only thing I don't like is when I watch a video with 0 views it stays, I'm worried if my uploaded videos get the same.
Fix the Bugs Please
by Ghukikkjh on 2015/08/04 19:00
I am having so many issues with this app. Pleas make an update, I cannot even watch a video! Come on youtube
Fix this already!
by Bearorgans on 2015/08/04 18:58
There is a bug which causes the app to freeze and lock up completely. The only way to fix it is to delete the app and redownload it or restart your phone. ... This has been a problem since your screen fix update, there has been 2 updates since ...and you still haven't fixed it. This bug makes your app useless. I can only watch about 3-4 videos before it happens.
I love YouTube, but...😫😫😫
by Angels animals space on 2015/08/04 18:58
I have loved this app for a really long time. BUT sometimes when I am watching a video it stops at a certain point and then plays the whole video again. Please fix the issues!!!!
Lol
by Mr Mississippi on 2015/08/04 18:57
Lol lol Lol
I never have the problems anyone else has
by Feet165 on 2015/08/04 18:32
The stuff everyone is talking about never happens to me aside from delayed screen orientation(but that is only because I have an older phone iPhone 4s). on my friends iPhone 6 it rotates immediately and everything works amazing on his phone and my phone. You guys either have really crappy phones or you have really crappy Internet. The rewinding thing does happen to me but all you have to do is change the quality from auto to 720p. Unless you have crappy Internet and have 240p or something. But all in all I rarely have problems with the app at all.(But the update is a bit weird.)
Sucky update
by Me mother f*ckers on 2015/08/04 18:31
The videos don't play. Screen orientation issues, do you guys try anymore k just started a YouTube channel and I can't even watch my own Vids!
Read This!!!
by JJMAYFIELD74 on 2015/08/04 18:28
I love this app but it was crashing so I had to delete but now it won't let me download it again because I'm on IOS6 and it requires IOS7. Please change this I love using this app!
Why😩😢
by Est19XXltfu on 2015/08/04 17:47
It won't let me open my app for some reason😩 please fix!!!
Thank you!
by Djfvnk on 2015/08/04 17:23
Thanks so much for reverting back to the original format. That new format had many problems and it's not quite ready to see the light of day. I'll happily download the update when there are no bugs
Love it, hate it.
by RedEveTillDawn on 2015/08/04 17:18
I love this app. I use it every single day. But for some reason it'll let me watch one video and then I click to watch another one and it'll say there is an error. I thought maybe it was my wifi so I kinda ignored it but then I realized all my other apps were working fine and it was just this app messing up. I'm not too upset I am able to entertain myself with movies, but sometimes I need to look things up on YouTube or watch my subscriptions and it just won't work. I'm constantly closing out the app and going back in just to watch my videos. Other than that I love YouTube, best thing ever.
Good
by Mohamadgaith92 on 2015/08/04 17:10

Screen rotation issues
by ogcapone on 2015/08/04 17:10
Every time I turn my phone sideways to get the full screen the video stops loading & once the marker hits that point where the video stopped, the audio continues but the video itself starts from the beginning. I thought it was only happening to this one interview I was trying to watch but it's happened with every video since. Fix it. Please.
IT WONT LET ME MAKE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?!?!?!
by MaryIsCrazyLikeAlways!!!!!! on 2015/08/04 17:06
Ive wanted to make a youtube channel for a long time but it just makes youtube glitch everytime i want the option i even tried it on my mac and te same thing is happening... FIX THIS!!!!!
Change it back!
by Add bigger maps on 2015/08/04 17:03
What did you do with the new update?! Change it back! This is terrible!
SPEED IS KEY
by Videogamekingdom1 on 2015/08/04 16:55
the app has been running fine for me but why isn't there a speed button? I'm trying to watch a whole series but if I'm on my iPad or iPhone I can't speed up the videos so I can get it done TWO TIMES FASTER! But anyways it's still a good app
You're a joke
by AkiliTheAwesome on 2015/08/04 16:46
When I'm watching a video and I try to pause or tap the video it won't work, the video keeps on going. I can't do crap about it
Excelente aplicación
by zramosp on 2015/08/04 16:39
Es una excelente aplicación, permite oír música, disfrutar de mantras y meditación, encontrar cómo reparar algo o hacerlo. Aprender idiomas y mucho mas. Es grandioso
Video, Rotation, and Glitch.
by TiphTMD on 2015/08/04 16:34
- video doesn't let me skip to the part I want most of the time // it then suddenly restarts the video - screen rotates randomly when I am watching - sometimes my browsers will take me to the app and won't let me double click out and swipe up only when I click home one time will it let me out of the YouTube app This glitch is annoying. Fix it please ~ Thanks @Brxthx
Playback Issues
by JacobSchmel on 2015/08/04 16:34
Video will repeat to the beginning halfway through, while the audio continues as normal and this problem persists until you close out of the video completely and start it all over again. Pretty annoying as it happens almost every time I load a video.
Great!
by App experts on 2015/08/04 16:26
This app has high quality and great sound I like It better than YouTube on my computer
What happened?
by Rosepool123 on 2015/08/04 16:00
I used to love this app. But now I can't even watch videos anymore. Whenever I click on a video it just freezes. Then I deleted the app and now I can't even download it no more.
Crashes/Glitches like Srsly

Fix the Audio Sync Bug
by adamdodson on 2015/08/04 15:15
About halfway through a video, the video will start over but the audio continues.
Just start from scratch
by Dotplayer on 2015/08/04 15:13
This app needs to reimplement the ordered sub notification and fix the sub feed issues (they both literally take money out of the pockets of people i sub to) and fix the issues with video pausing on the turn of the phone before i can recommend this app at all.
What's going on?!?!?
by lalalovemusic on 2015/08/04 14:45
I love this app but for the past two days none of the videos have been playing!!! Everything loads when I search up something but when I click on a video it doesn't play, it's just loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads😑😑😑😑😑
Reallly
by MineFan123 on 2015/08/04 14:42
The audio keeps going and video goes to beginning. Right now i think all u guys do is update smalll things
One MAJOR bug
by Johnnyd007 on 2015/08/04 14:40
This app runs pretty decent but I can't go 3+ videos in a row without it having to render the video to the point where I have to restart the app completely... ITS SO ANNOYING
Please Add More Options
by xXGHOSTFAVAXx on 2015/08/04 14:32
It would be nice if the makers of the app would put more detail and options into the app, I do not have a computer anymore and I can't edit my "banner" or "profile photo" through the app, I think by adding these simple options into the app would help many people out, also add more options into the edit tool, like "thumb nails" I upload from my PS4 until I soon get a new computer but when I upload, it makes a random thumb nail for the video and I can't change it. Also for the makers maybe work on new YouTube related apps like "Banner Maker" where you can go and edit or make your own YouTube banner and link your channel to the app so it can upload your new or improved banner to your channel instantly.
My Subscription feed will not load
by User1136 on 2015/08/04 14:28
I've tried everything, but it will not load.
Terrible
by Christian250 on 2015/08/04 14:24
Why is it that whenever you guys update this app it causes more problems than it fixes? Seriously, I can't open this app without encountering at least 2 bugs. Almost every time I'm watching a video and want to change the orientation of the screen the audio becomes out of sync with the video or I could get about half way through the video then it starts from the beginning but the audio keeps going. It seems like with every update you just seem to find a way to make the app more frustrating. I suggest you update it soon and this time do it right!
Videos don't load
by Trevor Burns on 2015/08/04 13:28
Video plays for one second before pausing, no matter how much it's buffered. Doesn't work on the chrome or safari app either. Good job YouTube. You did it!
Really?!
by Hazerddex on 2015/08/04 13:03
You removed the shuffle button on playlists?! Give it back also still can't see anotations
crash site
by THPS3000 on 2015/08/04 13:01
youtube app has been crashing for 2 days what am I supposed to do with my life
Wayy to many problems now
by _a_n_k_i_t_h_a_ on 2015/08/04 10:53
I used to love this app. Now it doesn't even try anymore... It keeps saying playback error even though my wifi is full and runs properly. Youtube please fix this!
Horrible
by Zombies is on top on 2015/08/04 10:19
Just plain awful
Great app, suffers from minor glitches
by lifter5000 on 2015/08/04 09:36
I'm so grateful for 60 fps videos! The best update that has come out for mobile so far. However many glitches still remain which means still a 3 star rating. Also, something I found really annoying is how the mobile youtube site on safari insists switching to this app even though the app doesn't have all the features of the mobile site. It gets annoying when you have to delete the app just to use the site on safari.
Not liking the update
by Odalisc1 on 2015/08/04 09:32
As I watch my videos its start to black out every few seconds and I don't like the fact I have to keep clicking on the screen so it doesn't take me back to my lock screen
Not good. Just bad
by glazethedounut on 2015/08/04 08:34
I used to love YouTube before. But now it's just really really bad. I use YouTube every day and watch a lot of videos. But now with the new updates it crashes all the time. I love you YouTube today and it crashed more than 10 times. (This is pretty common when I use YouTube) sometimes when I'm watching videos the video slows down with the audio is still normal. It makes me mad because I have to slowly start the app all over again. And when I leave you two for a few seconds to check on notification such as Instagram or iMessage, YouTube will restart itself and it's just really annoying! Please fix this problem or I will find something else
Complete trash
by JealousBishop on 2015/08/04 08:25
There has been so much problems since this update. It's become so unreliable due to constant screen orientation bugs. I'm watching a video and pause it for whatever reason in full screen and when I try to in pause again, it becomes unresponsive. This means constant exiting out of the app and restarting it. It happens all the time. Do you guys even pay attention to the reviews? This app is horrible, almost unusable.

YouTube crash
by Jesse pichardo on 2015/08/04 06:16
Pretty much every time I watch a video it crashes and goes to main menu
Worst official app
by Abounded khan on 2015/08/04 06:07
I cannot believe that the app is really that bad, it's sad to use it.
Glitches!!
by Empire Rocks! on 2015/08/04 05:55
Every time I'm watching a video and have to back out or want to fast forward. For some reason the audio will be fine and in sync with the time but the video feed will go back to the beginning and if I try to rewind or fast forward, at the time where the glitch started the new time becomes the beginning of the video.
Update broke
by Dhkthkdjcigjsi on 2015/08/04 05:48
I have been using YouTube for a while and have had few problems until your latest update. What will happen is randomly, my phone won't let do anything with the video I'm watching. That means it won't let me pause it, play it, exit it, and etc. The only I can fix this us by resetting my phone and it does this 5 times a day. Fix this now! Omega signing off.
Annoying glitch
by 123:( :( etc on 2015/08/04 05:42
Whenever I am watching a video the videos audio working but it's the video is pretty much restarting because it's showing the video from that start
I love the update!
by Nali Phommavong on 2013/08/23 01:22
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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 2015/01/10 03:53
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.
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
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
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.
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...
An piece of trash
by thatdumpster on 2015/01/03 04:15
There is nothing more annoying than this app. It has so many bugs and glitches that you will throw your device across the room because this piece of trash crashes so much for no reason. You scroll down a long description, it goes blank and crashes. You watch a video in not full screen, it crashes. You open the app, it crashes. This piece of garbage also has an immeasurable amount if bugs and glitches that you can have fun finding them your self, it's not hard. Google spent like 4 bucks on this app and I could make a better app off welfare. If you want an app that had more than a 3 minute development, play ANY other app ever, I can almost ensure that you'll have a better experience. If you have a day without this app glitching on you in any way, tell me. All in all, the billion dollar company google needs to spend more than 3 minutes on their apps. Worst of all is that no matter how good you wifi connection is, this app will almost always buffer for a millennium and then go to 144p for no reason. I thought I would have a better experience on the 3DS and it managed to crash on that. I never knew that was possible. If you want an app that deserves -3 stars, God bless your soul and download this.
Nice improvement
by Fawkzzzzz on 2014/03/22 20:00
Wow google really improved this app since last time I downloaded it and it kept crashing before I could even use it. I really like the UI layout and all the different options. So far I've only encountered a minor problem with the app, sometimes it doesn't show some comments. For example, I see a comment and I tap more replies or whatever it's called, and it basically shows one or more blank comments with usernames and other people replies to those blank comments. I see people complaining about the play button in the middle of the screen, to be honest I thought it's gonna be a huge problem for me, but so far it hasn't been a problem at all, also you can just tap anywhere on the video screen and it will go away and you can see the video clearly while its paused. Overall it's a pretty good app, now the only thing that would make it the best is if google added offline viewing option. Make it unable to save to camera roll or to use it anywhere else other than the app or something, that would be really cool.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
Great App But It Can Be Greater!
by TY_DaSmartGuy 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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a joke
by Blob of vomit on 2015/07/31 01:34
Now I love the way the app is designed and how it runs but first off, WHY DID YOU TAKE DOWN OVER 30 OF MY VIDEOS!? Do you even know the amount of time I put into each and every one of them? Even my most popular videos were taken down due to misleading title or tags when I clearly did not do anything like that! Another thing is that if you try to rewind the video your watching the whole thing gets messed up and you have to wait years just for it to play a downscaled quality than the one I already selected. There are constant playback errors and if you try to upload a video from the app it just says pending upload and never completes! Sometimes the screen gets screwed up so bad that you have to restart the app completely just to get back to the video screen. Also when the video auto changes quality the audio skips like 400 times and makes the video not enjoyable. The only reason why I give this 2 stars instead of one is because I do like the layout of the app but until there is a major update that fixes this crap you won't be seeing a 4 star or 5 star review anytime soon.
A Complete Failure
by rommel45 on 2014/06/12 02:03
The newest version, 2.7.0, is even worse than I expected it to be. The "bug fixes" this time around involved breaking the search function. Now, instead of a list of ten or so items ghat appear as you type, there are three, which include previous searches no matter what you have typed. Auto-completion of search queries have been removed in favor of filling my feed with channels I don't want to watch. Luckily, however, the app crashes every fifteen minutes, so there is a way to clear the search history. I'm still waiting for the delete playlist button to be on the playlist's menu, not on my channel. Until there's a way to remove unwanted "recommendations" from my feed, I will never know when my friends upload videos. This app was barely functional to begin with, but the navigation and layout is broken so far beyond repair that watching a two-minute video becomes akin to scaling a mountain. Until more emphasis is placed on the videos and less on making the layout as user-unfriendly as possible, this will remain one of the worst apps I've ever used. Just get AdBlock and stick with a computer. At least there you'll have some control.
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
Better Off Using Safari
by Random Rater's Random Reviews on 2014/07/04 20:17
As the title states, Safari does a lot better at showing videos than this. First, the quality for most videos become so terrible that I must change the quality so that it has to work. ALL THE DARN TIME. Second, your history is not fully recorded thus it being difficult finding really old videos you would like to watch again. To add, (even though this isn't just the App) most videos are un viewable because they aren't set to your platform? I understand one or two videos are fine, but when the only black veil brides video you can watch on mobile is the official single video itself while 9000 others aren't, there's a problem. It's not only annoying, but stupid since everyone will see these videos despite what they use. Finally, commenting is the worst to do on my device. Even reading older comments is a hassle! I can reply to some of them, while others, I can just report. Overall, while some good features, most of it is pointless since it's only job is to allow a decent watching experience that can be accomplished on any browser or app.
Needs rewind buttons and background playing
by Linguini15 on 2015/07/02 18:48
I haven't had many problems with this app. But, whenever I try to rewind a video, I either pass the place I wanted it or it freezes. One thing I would like is to make scrubbing easier or add a rewind button to make going back in a video easier. Another thing I would like added is a "continue playing in background" or "play while locked" option. I like listening to music on the app. But, when I want to lock my phone, it stops the music and I have to keep the app unlocked and open at all times. It's really annoying when I don't want my phone on in my pocket, but I want to listen to music with my headphones. Please make it possible to keep videos and music playing after locking the phone or going into multitasking. It would really help me and a lot of other people who are probably having the same problem. I would rate 4.5, but 4 is all I can currently give. Thank you if you read this review and please consider adding the suggested items to your update list. Then it will be worth a full five stars. UPDATE: The app is wonderful with the 60fps option! Pc gaming videos have never been more clear! But, it's only in 720p and there's a lot of pixelation. If it's possible to add a 1080p with 60fps, that would be fantastic! There's already an app that has a great 1080p option, but not with 60fps. So, only because of the 60fps is why I'm not deleting this app straight off my phone. Please consider updating!
The app if fine, people are just ignorant
by Reygarzajunior on 2014/12/12 00:48
The app if great, the people here are just complaining over features they can do on their own but are complaining over the fact they have to do it themselves, the only problem I have, the ONLY I've ever had, is the fact comments are impossible to reply with because when the screen to rep,y shows up, I can't see what I'm typing and most of the time, if I hit cancel or reply, the app crashes. One thing that needs to be added however if replying to comments that are replies to the main comment. I don't want to reply to the main comment when I want to respond to the reply for the main comment. Just a small thing nothing major. Seriously though, I have no problem with this app whatsoever, if you have a problem with it, then too bad, don't come on here and hate the creators, what if it's your device? Anyways if you are depnding on these "reviews" to make you decide wether downloading the app or not, ignore them and try it out yourself.
You are all correct!!!
by odedo1 on 2015/07/13 23:07
I've discovered those problems that you complain about years ago and it's on like 2 third of all Apps, so I came out with a solution. With today hard drive prices keep dropping and the capacity of memory is growing so I bought myself a 3 TERA USB HD, and I back up all my Apps (especially the old ones ), I've discovered that if you open iTunes while holding the shift button you get options like creating a new iTunes library or choosing one of many that you already created, I can creat as many iTunes library's with my choice of names which I usually choose the date as the new iTunes library and place them anywhere I wish just like on my 3 TERA USB HARD DRIVE and this lets me keep all versions of all Apps and in a dated order, it's also good for installing Apps on older devices because as you all know many Apps today won't install unless you upgrade to the latest iOS but older devices won't upgrade any more so it's always good to have a collection of older dated Apps. Hope this will help you guys in the future!
Good, but needs some improvements
by DanieltheGreat4 on 2013/08/20 19:18
I like the way you can minimize the video in a multitasking way! Unfortunately, that seems to be the only improvement. The new interface seems really messy. The description box doesn't load fully, and you have to scroll through the suggested vids in order to get to the comments. And one problem with the comment section is that you can't reply to a specific comment and you can't click and access a commenter's channel. However, the most annoying thing about this app is that there is no back button. In order to go back to your search results, YOU HAVE to minimize the video and pause it if you thought it was annoying. I liked the tabs style, where you can click for either the description box, comments, or suggested video. It was much cleaner. I pretty much wished they added the option to minimize video but kept the old interface the same. Again, way too crowded on an iPod/iPhone, but probably fine on iPad.
I'm really sick of this.
by Lcc227 on 2014/07/11 14:59
I've honestly had enough of this app. I watch videos on safari now instead. There are so many problems with every video that I watch! (I'm on an iPhone 5s by the way) I'll open a video and after 10 seconds the video will freeze and buffer for another 10 seconds. And when it finally starts playing again, the quality is terrible, and if I try to turn the quality. up, it freezes the video again, so I have to wait there for the video to play again. And once it starts playing again, usually it restores itself to a better quality, but then 10 seconds later it freezes again, and the cycle continues through the whole video. There are also times where the video will start buffering, but won't fix itself, so I have to go back in the video, but if I try to go forward or backward in the video at all, it just freezes the video even more, and then the app crashes! There are lots of other issues that I've experienced, but none that have really bothered me. It's all the playback issues that annoy me. Hopefully they fix these issues so I can stop watching my videos on safari.
Screen rotation issues (sometimes)
by Shiz_Kababz on 2015/07/30 05:56
I really like this app but this one bug makes me so mad. Say I'm watching a video and, it happens randomly, when I tap the screen while in full screen to see how much time is left in the video the icons don't show up and that's when I know something's wrong. The video keeps playing and I turn my phone to portrait view and the screen doesn't respond to anything. I tap and nothing happens. So I decide to turn it back to landscape and it rotates but doesn't go full screen. So imagine the screen cut into three rectangles. The biggest one on the bottom and the other two on top side by side. In the top left hand corner is the video and the one next to it is just black. The bottom larger rectangle is the video name and all of that jazz. The screen still won't respond so I double click the home button to bring up multitasking and swipe it away. I go back into the app and I have to find the same video again. When I click on it it brings it up and luckily to the same spot most of the time. So sometimes I have to find my spot and I could have already finished the video. This the only bug I have too.
The latest update changed the whole app and is terrible!!!
by Jared V. on 2013/09/06 23:13
Do NOT get the latest update of this app. The last version was wonderful, and I would rate it 5 stars. The latest version that just came out is glitchy, subscriptions don't update unless you force quit the app and come back in, the ability to navigate is diminished from the previous version in favor of a kind of picture-in-picture multitasking pane. Commenting on videos is horrible where you can easily delete what you've written if you try to move back and forth with your finger to review what you've written. The panes move also and there is an X that deletes what you've written that you can easily hit with your finger. The actual video page for each video is now all over the place in terms of the important elements. The whole thing is awkward, clunky, and in many ways counterintuitive in terms of natural usage. I've already provided their developers with some feedback about things, particularly the subscriptions not updating properly. Let's hope they get this mess fixed quickly. I have confidence they will. In the meantime, steer clear of the Update button on this app.
Orientation problems
by 2626262626262626 on 2015/07/25 05:55
Since the update I've been having orientation problems. This would happen randomly but has happened many times over. As I flip my screen sideways or tap the fullscreen button, it would flip the screen off into a corner, minimizing or cutting off the screen. Everything around it is black and would continue minimizing or going off screen as I flip it. I've tried flipping it many times to see if I could fix it, it only worked once so far but flipping it once more would mess it up again. It can also go to the point of going completely off screen. Note, the video plays normally during all this. The only way of fixing it would be to restart the app, but that is temporary. There are many other bugs such as a frozen screen while audio plays, but I'm guessing those are just connection problems. This bug is bugging me to the point of just wanting to watch it off the web. It's like trying to open a fridge that always jerks back closed when you're halfway.
Google aint the problem the app is
by rolfchoppa007 on 2014/03/30 12:03
Look we can all complain about the changes on the app. To me when I review I review if there are bugs and crashes and makes it not user friendly through said bugs and glitches. Just recently was watching a commentary over Alan Wake, something almost ritual for my weekend nights. Never before has the thing crashed DURING a video for no reason. It's not the playlist, the Internet is flawless on my end, nothing but this iPod is connected wirelessly. But it's the fact I can't watch this video for 5 mins is why I'm writing the review. Ill roll with googles punches but if they are gonna have an app they need to make it not crash. Sure safari crashes but that's if you go to a site riddled with ads and interfaces designed for mobiles and not for the typical desktop. But three crashes back to back for no reason. Not even a buffer signal, too! Google do whatever the heck you want, but please... If you can have the balls to make Google Glass you can invest a buck or two not making this thing crash. It wasn't like a lot of stuff happens on my screens.
Outright terrible
by Auggnation on 2015/05/20 01:51
Watching any video over 10 minutes I get subjected to at least 1 ad at beginning and then atleast 1 if not more ads during the video. The longer the video the more ads. Watched a 45 minute video tonight and then had 60 minutes of ads if I didn't skip them. Used to be ok with ads but as of right not I do not recommend this app in any way. By here is no excuse beside outright greed that would cause this. So ugly of an app I am ashamed to actually put it on any device. Please stop using us to make an extra billion. Beyond that super annoying that I can not send video quality lower than high def. I would love to have ability to set permanent video quality on network wifi so I can stream at the lower resolution I am comfortable with. I am on a college campus where streaming hD videos is near impossible but it's just as good of quality on my little 8 in screen if I choose 360 p and I don't get the constant buffering. The ads are beyond acceptable. 10 minutes then an ad up to 5 minutes long. Besides the same 2 ads showing every time it's more and more difficult to want to watch anything on any of this app.
Meh. Could be a lot better
by love18pink on 2014/07/18 21:50
I'm honestly very disappointed with this app. I've noticed recently that it automatically unsubscribes me from channels that I regularly watch. For example, I am subscribed to quite a few channels. But I guess I'm subscribed to what the app thinks is too many and will unsubscribe me from one channel in order to subscribe me to another. I was wondering why one of my favorite youtubers hadn't uploaded anything and that it didn't show up in my subscribed feed only to look up the youtuber in the search option and find that I was unsubscribed. This app has done this multiple times to me not to just one channel but to many others. I also really hate the organization format of this app. I don't know what it is but it just doesn't feel easy to use and is cluttered. I also hate the stupid "not available in this format" message. If it wasn't available then make it an option to not have videos that we can't watch anyway show up. Honestly wish they would fix some things and make the app easier to use and less stressful. Use safari instead.
subscription & playlist
by Q 3.0 on 2014/07/19 22:48
- It's fine but there's a few problems I have about 150 subscriptions it might be a little much but I scroll down the side menu and I can't get to all of my subscriptions. I like that it is in alphabetical order but it's very inconvenient that I have to search for the channel that I want to browse I should be able to scroll from a channel that starts with A to one that starts with Z if I were to subscribe to a channel like that. I might just need a newer iPhone but that's besides the point. - Also you should make it that I can listen to playlist while your not on the app you could update it so you can label the playlist music or video so if it's labeled music you'll be able to listen to it while your phone is off or your not on the app something along those Lines or at least my own playlist at least . If I could I would give it a 4 & a half

Ads interrupt videos; this is garbage
by Peripeteian on 2015/08/05 02:14
Title says it all. Ads interrupt playback. Also you cannot choose to listen to audio only anymore, and you have to keep the app in the foreground. Screw, screw, screw the consumer! Uninstall this app and have some integrity
Don't get it!!!!!
by Steer showgirl on 2015/08/05 02:12
It's a total waste of time, space, and not to mention it has ruined my device....?????? I tried to make and account and it was spastic to the point where I had to shut down my device just to get back to the home screen. Now I can't even make it through a commercial without it buffering and closing out. Gee Google, first a crappy app and now this. You have really outdone yourselves.
Seriously YouTube people! Come on!
by Ginnymareestewart on 2015/08/05 02:09
There has been many a time, where I've wanted to listen to song while doing something else, but can't because if I find that if I leave the YouTube app, the song quits playing! And that right there boils me hotter than satan! I would love for just once, being able to jam out to Megan Trainer's, All about that bass, while pinning instructions on "how to make some awesome dolphin cupcakes" on the Pinterest app. But as I've mentioned before, you can't... 😡 So please YouTube people, remove this dark cloud of a flaw, and replace it with some sweet sunshine, which in turn would make my day just grand! Thanks a bunch. -Anonymous. 😉
How?
by Waffledog450 on 2015/08/05 01:57
The app has gotten worse since the update
Subscriptions
by Booshida on 2015/08/05 01:47
I don't know if it is just me but my subscriptions tab won't load at all. All the other parts load but the subscriptions part just shows as a loading screen or "tap to retry". FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE!!
Uh
by Kaiya😍😍 on 2015/08/05 01:25
Okay so I was watching a video and it was almost over and then while the people were talking it went back to another part of the video 😕 and when I close the app for a second and go back it was hard to make the screen back to normal. Please fix it Jesus
It has some issues but it's great
by heatherk428 on 2015/08/05 01:23
This is really great but there is some issues like when the video starts in the middle of the recording session or when I bought a movie it will say "You have to Buy This To Watch" so I couldn't watch even when I refreshed it. But it's one of my favorite of all apps.So yea
Problematic
by Me gustan la pupusas on 2015/08/05 01:21
The videos load but won't play after I leave the app and come back
Tbh
by Bæsic on 2015/08/05 01:16
I see a lot of reviews saying this app is glitchy and doesn't work well yet I have no problem at all 😂 I think most of the people complaining just have janky phones that need to be fixed 💀 I use this app 2-3 hours per day and have yet to encounter any issues (at least on the iPhone version) 😌 here and there it might freeze but most of the time that's because my phone has overheated or can be solved with simply restarting my phone (something that should be done regularly tbh)
Awful!
by JessicaPimenta on 2015/08/05 01:13
There's always some bug or a problem.
Okay
by Waldo667 on 2015/08/05 01:13
Recently my Subscriptions wouldn't load and it says "tap to retry" but it never loads but every other tabs loads fast and the videos are loading fast , please fix the the subscription tab
my video wont upload
by Herrman8985479)5 on 2015/08/05 01:09
usually i can upload a video with no problems from the app but for some reason today it just says pending upload. but doesnt upload??? my videos have never said that when i uploaded them what the heck
Love it!!!!!!👍😄😄😄
by perrze on 2015/08/05 00:53
This is an excellent application.
I'm confused
by '~*~*~*~*~*~*~' on 2015/08/05 00:49
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY BELOVED? Subscriptions is still NOT the first thing to pop up and I feel as if I will now clumsily change what video I am on more than before. Please, please bring back a more popular (older) setup
Is good
by Bye tac nyan! on 2015/08/05 00:38
Good except that you can't get rid of or edit playlists besides from putting new videos on there. 5/5
Good app HUGE flaw
by Dan 31L on 2015/08/05 00:21
For the most part the app is amazing! I don't know if it's just me but for some reason every time I try to watch a video the screen turns black PLEASE!!!! fix this YouTube used to be so good but now I can't enjoy it because the screen is always black
Uhhhhhhh
by friendlyyoutuber on 2015/08/05 00:05
I love this app and all, but it would be really cool if I could see the real number of views my videos have gotten, and the comments?? This is so frustrating because I'd really like to be able to respond to my subscribers!
Okay
by 12816wow on 2015/08/04 23:52
I have just recently had a problem where all of the sudden, the video will start over again when I'm in the middle of watching it. When it starts over, the time on the video stays the same but the video starts over. For example, if I was 3 minutes into watching a video and the video suddenly restarted, the video would keep playing at 3 minutes but the actual film and Audio starts over again from the beginning of the video. Hopefully I'm not the only one experiencing these problems and it will be fixed soon.
Just why
by 117419618681 on 2015/08/04 23:21
Took down my videos

The captions are messed up
notifications are way too late
by ❤️💕✨ on 2015/08/04 22:56
When i put notifications on for different youtubers, the notification comes in really late. Its useless if it comes in late bc by the time i do get the notification, i already finished watching the video. Please fix this.
unable to shuffle playlists
by Jonathanbel2018 on 2015/08/04 22:28
I don't know why but I am now not able to shuffle the videos on the playlists. Can you please fix this issue?
Broken and offline play
by Butter Apple249 on 2015/08/04 22:26
Youtube is just broken on mobile,for example sometimes i rotate the screen and suddenly i cant tap on anything,also when is the offline play function coming to US/UK?
Ok but FIX THE VIDEO/AUDIO BUG
by TitanicThomas on 2015/08/04 22:14
Now this is a good app if you want to go see videos on your phone and not the computer but the thing that is making me rate the way I am rating is we THERE IS A BUG WITH THE VIDEOS. Now I have had this for a year and well a year back this was not happening well now it is so when this is BUG is fixed I will rate if differently and so will others but until then it will have to be this way. For now.
Incredible Update!!!😃👍🏿
by Zombie killing machine890 on 2015/08/04 22:08
Thank you for fixing the bugs now I can comfortably watch my favorite pornographic vids from my favorite subscriptions.
WHAT HAPPENED???
by HarryPotterLover162 on 2015/08/04 21:59
Okay YouTube was my favorite. All the sudden today, I started getting bugs. The comment section was gone and all my favorite videos I couldn't watch. They all said, this video needs to be approved. Okay, inappropriate content I guess? Hmm but Ashdubh never swears. Well forget about it, must be a bug. But where's the comment section? Whatever I guess. So then I saw a video I like. (I probably watched it like 10 times) this video needs to be approved. Okay, what's going on? So I deleted and got YouTube again. Okay so I signed back in and saw that ash, Stampy everyone like that made a new video. I clicked on ash first. What? He didn't make a new video! That's yesterday's! Okay I'm getting angry now okay LionMaker THAT VIDEO WAS MADE LIKE A MONTH AGO! SQAISHEY? THAT WAS MAKE 2 DAYS AGO! Okay please let Stampy be okay! NO! THAT VIDEO WAS MADE 4DAYS AGO! Please fix the bugs YouTube. I loved your app but WHAT HAPPENED???
I want speed control
by StaticCode on 2015/08/04 21:58
The app is nice and all, but having speed control would be nice. But knowing that companies dont read reviews, I guess I just wasted my time.
Nope
by Jph150 on 2015/08/04 21:56
The app won't even open anymore.
Sneaky snakes
by Big.McLargeHuge on 2015/08/04 21:40
Besides the glitches and orientation problems the app developers have found ways to make this app worse. When looking at YouTube through the mobile site it automatically opens up the YouTube App. This would be all fine and dandy if the YouTube app could play music through the iPhone's "control menu". You are not sneaky, Google. I just decided to delete the app instead.
I hate it!!!
by Jfjjfhfhdkdbf on 2015/08/04 21:36
When I'm watch a video that's ok but when I want to go watch another video it just won't let me it's as if it frozen it won't let me go another where when I touch the screen so I have to redownload it. It's starting to get annoying I don't know why I update it just got horrible please make a fix it.
Just why?
by Sjs120797 on 2015/08/04 21:33
So the update said "bug fixes" and now I'm convinced all you did was add more bugs to it. Every day I try and watch a video but it wont rotate, then when it finally rotates midway through a video the screen won't let me access anything; I can't pause, I can't rotate the screen, it is so frustrating and looking over these other reviews it's not just me, fix your sh*t YouTube.
Too complicated/not user friendly
by Miguellito on 2015/08/04 21:32
They keep changing the format, it's not user friendly keeps asking for my login finally after login in, still can't see the comments on the videos.
Hdhdh
by Groan than on 2015/08/04 21:30
You guys need to update the app you can't watch videos right now
Help
by Gkhvt on 2015/08/04 21:27
Since the last update I haven't been able to watch an videos and I can't catch up on my miss videos
cmon bruh
by ThaBoii on 2015/08/04 21:22
anytime I leave the app and come back to my video, the video will start over but it won't start over time wise, just actual video wise.. yall need to fix bruh
Problems
by Funnycat01 on 2015/08/04 21:00
Lately, I have been having some problems with this app. One of those problems involves orientation issues. Whenever I change the orientation of my device, the audio continues to play but the video itself freezes. Because of this I have to continually replay the video. The other problem is that occasionally when I am watching a video, the screen goes black, and the video starts to play over. Along with this, the audio still continues from where it was originally. I thought the last update was supposed to fix these problems but it hasn't.
Really Google?!?!
by TjcrelatableHD on 2015/08/04 20:57
So glitchy for ever now. But then after the newest update, I can't even watch a video!! Seriously, are you even trying? My phone freezes when I try to, and I'm on an iPhone 6. Seriously, you need to design a new YouTube app from scratch. Do you even read your reviews?!?! If you listened to your customers, you would not have this problem! Stupid stupid Google only caring about stupid Google+.
Super buggy
by Crazynuget on 2015/08/04 20:39
This app has too many bugs to be great. With all the bugs, there are just so many issues, it's just annoying to use.
-_-
by Gjtckj on 2015/08/04 20:22
Every time I try to create a channel it just goes back to the home screen of the app like nothing happened
Don't know if it's a recent error...
by soandsosaysthis on 2015/08/04 20:20
But the app no longer works for me on my 5S. I use the app all the time to have background music or noise while I carry through chores or errands. The video and the audio desync mentioned in other reviews was already inconvenient, but I could work around it. Very recently, and I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced it, but the app will load all of my subscribed channels and recognize specific video content and comments, but fail to load the ads and videos themselves. Imagine a black loading screen where a video should be with everything else loaded underneath said loading screen, and you've essentially recreated my YouTube experience lately. I've logged out of accounts and even went as far as re-installing the app, but nothing I do will allow YouTube to function like... Well... YouTube. Again, I don't know if it's just me or if it's a YouTube related issue and not specific to this app, but the bottom line is that it does not work. Going along with the other reviews, I would recommend either waiting for an appropriate fix or consult a different app for your online video streaming perusal, especially if you use this kind of a site as much as I do.
Problems
by Marcoandfrankiegaming on 2015/08/04 20:14
Me and my friend have a YouTube channel. And this app always has problems. Saying that you don't have a channel and stuff like that. Sometimes the app even stops running.
I LOVE YouTube...BUT...
by Jason bluflyp on 2015/08/04 20:09
YouTube is a great app and I really appreciate the hard work that brings us this gift, but these days, the app had gotten awfully enraging lately due to its main issue: 😡 It glitches almost everyday. Every. Single. Day. What the heck. Do something about it! I've experienced more rage then ever when my screen is stuck froze with a quarter size video playing. Thanks.
New Update is broken
by Anonymous3.0 on 2015/08/04 19:56
What annoys me is that there are thousands of people who YouTube isn't working for them and then there's that one guy whose like,"it works for me, everyone else is a liar and a hater." Listen, the YouTube app doesn't let you comment, or reply, or like. When you rewind it, the audio doesn't sync. The app constantly crashes. And now it takes a lot longer to load a video. The newest update screwed the app. Someone else needs to make a YouTube app cuz this one doesn't work anymore.
ONE SUGGESTION:
by GTOaky on 2015/08/04 19:56
It would be cool to have the speed adjustment feature as available on desktop computers. I often use that feature to get through videos faster
Safari and app
by Govannak on 2015/08/04 19:37
Every time I try to open YouTube on safari it opens the app even tho I am wanting to open the safari page not the app! It is annoying especially when I am trying to connect YouTube to my tv off of my iPhone! I get so annoyed and every time I have to delete the app and reinstall it which is super annoying YouTube fix this now! Plz!
Great organization, but please improve convenience
by Kitty🐯 on 2015/08/04 19:17
I really like the way the sidebar is arranged because it shows all your playlists and also subscriptions, much like the format seen on the computer. However, when watching a video, it gets annoying sometimes when adjusting the volume for it, especially if you are leaning your phone against something. If you could format the volume adjuster like how it is on Safari, that would be great.
I accidentally deleted it and can't get it back
by Sports kid 😜😀 on 2015/08/04 19:09
I was messing around with it and deleted and I can't get back and I have been looking to see if it is a glitch or not and I still can't get it back. And I liked this app a lot I used this app the most out of a lot of apps
Great App but views
by Aaron15MC on 2015/08/04 19:02
This app is perfect others just complain, but only thing I don't like is when I watch a video with 0 views it stays, I'm worried if my uploaded videos get the same.
Fix the Bugs Please
by Ghukikkjh on 2015/08/04 19:00
I am having so many issues with this app. Pleas make an update, I cannot even watch a video! Come on youtube
Fix this already!
by Bearorgans on 2015/08/04 18:58
There is a bug which causes the app to freeze and lock up completely. The only way to fix it is to delete the app and redownload it or restart your phone. ... This has been a problem since your screen fix update, there has been 2 updates since ...and you still haven't fixed it. This bug makes your app useless. I can only watch about 3-4 videos before it happens.
I love YouTube, but...😫😫😫
by Angels animals space on 2015/08/04 18:58
I have loved this app for a really long time. BUT sometimes when I am watching a video it stops at a certain point and then plays the whole video again. Please fix the issues!!!!
Lol
by Mr Mississippi on 2015/08/04 18:57
Lol lol Lol
I never have the problems anyone else has
by Feet165 on 2015/08/04 18:32
The stuff everyone is talking about never happens to me aside from delayed screen orientation(but that is only because I have an older phone iPhone 4s). on my friends iPhone 6 it rotates immediately and everything works amazing on his phone and my phone. You guys either have really crappy phones or you have really crappy Internet. The rewinding thing does happen to me but all you have to do is change the quality from auto to 720p. Unless you have crappy Internet and have 240p or something. But all in all I rarely have problems with the app at all.(But the update is a bit weird.)
Sucky update
by Me mother f*ckers on 2015/08/04 18:31
The videos don't play. Screen orientation issues, do you guys try anymore k just started a YouTube channel and I can't even watch my own Vids!
Read This!!!
by JJMAYFIELD74 on 2015/08/04 18:28
I love this app but it was crashing so I had to delete but now it won't let me download it again because I'm on IOS6 and it requires IOS7. Please change this I love using this app!
Why😩😢
by Est19XXltfu on 2015/08/04 17:47
It won't let me open my app for some reason😩 please fix!!!
Thank you!
by Djfvnk on 2015/08/04 17:23
Thanks so much for reverting back to the original format. That new format had many problems and it's not quite ready to see the light of day. I'll happily download the update when there are no bugs
Love it, hate it.
by RedEveTillDawn on 2015/08/04 17:18
I love this app. I use it every single day. But for some reason it'll let me watch one video and then I click to watch another one and it'll say there is an error. I thought maybe it was my wifi so I kinda ignored it but then I realized all my other apps were working fine and it was just this app messing up. I'm not too upset I am able to entertain myself with movies, but sometimes I need to look things up on YouTube or watch my subscriptions and it just won't work. I'm constantly closing out the app and going back in just to watch my videos. Other than that I love YouTube, best thing ever.
Good
by Mohamadgaith92 on 2015/08/04 17:10

Screen rotation issues
by ogcapone on 2015/08/04 17:10
Every time I turn my phone sideways to get the full screen the video stops loading & once the marker hits that point where the video stopped, the audio continues but the video itself starts from the beginning. I thought it was only happening to this one interview I was trying to watch but it's happened with every video since. Fix it. Please.
IT WONT LET ME MAKE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?!?!?!
by MaryIsCrazyLikeAlways!!!!!! on 2015/08/04 17:06
Ive wanted to make a youtube channel for a long time but it just makes youtube glitch everytime i want the option i even tried it on my mac and te same thing is happening... FIX THIS!!!!!
Change it back!
by Add bigger maps on 2015/08/04 17:03
What did you do with the new update?! Change it back! This is terrible!
SPEED IS KEY
by Videogamekingdom1 on 2015/08/04 16:55
the app has been running fine for me but why isn't there a speed button? I'm trying to watch a whole series but if I'm on my iPad or iPhone I can't speed up the videos so I can get it done TWO TIMES FASTER! But anyways it's still a good app
You're a joke
by AkiliTheAwesome on 2015/08/04 16:46
When I'm watching a video and I try to pause or tap the video it won't work, the video keeps on going. I can't do crap about it
Excelente aplicación
by zramosp on 2015/08/04 16:39
Es una excelente aplicación, permite oír música, disfrutar de mantras y meditación, encontrar cómo reparar algo o hacerlo. Aprender idiomas y mucho mas. Es grandioso
Video, Rotation, and Glitch.
by TiphTMD on 2015/08/04 16:34
- video doesn't let me skip to the part I want most of the time // it then suddenly restarts the video - screen rotates randomly when I am watching - sometimes my browsers will take me to the app and won't let me double click out and swipe up only when I click home one time will it let me out of the YouTube app This glitch is annoying. Fix it please ~ Thanks @Brxthx
Playback Issues
by JacobSchmel on 2015/08/04 16:34
Video will repeat to the beginning halfway through, while the audio continues as normal and this problem persists until you close out of the video completely and start it all over again. Pretty annoying as it happens almost every time I load a video.
Great!
by App experts on 2015/08/04 16:26
This app has high quality and great sound I like It better than YouTube on my computer
What happened?
by Rosepool123 on 2015/08/04 16:00
I used to love this app. But now I can't even watch videos anymore. Whenever I click on a video it just freezes. Then I deleted the app and now I can't even download it no more.
Crashes/Glitches like Srsly

Fix the Audio Sync Bug
by adamdodson on 2015/08/04 15:15
About halfway through a video, the video will start over but the audio continues.
Just start from scratch
by Dotplayer on 2015/08/04 15:13
This app needs to reimplement the ordered sub notification and fix the sub feed issues (they both literally take money out of the pockets of people i sub to) and fix the issues with video pausing on the turn of the phone before i can recommend this app at all.
What's going on?!?!?
by lalalovemusic on 2015/08/04 14:45
I love this app but for the past two days none of the videos have been playing!!! Everything loads when I search up something but when I click on a video it doesn't play, it's just loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads😑😑😑😑😑
Reallly
by MineFan123 on 2015/08/04 14:42
The audio keeps going and video goes to beginning. Right now i think all u guys do is update smalll things
One MAJOR bug
by Johnnyd007 on 2015/08/04 14:40
This app runs pretty decent but I can't go 3+ videos in a row without it having to render the video to the point where I have to restart the app completely... ITS SO ANNOYING
Please Add More Options
by xXGHOSTFAVAXx on 2015/08/04 14:32
It would be nice if the makers of the app would put more detail and options into the app, I do not have a computer anymore and I can't edit my "banner" or "profile photo" through the app, I think by adding these simple options into the app would help many people out, also add more options into the edit tool, like "thumb nails" I upload from my PS4 until I soon get a new computer but when I upload, it makes a random thumb nail for the video and I can't change it. Also for the makers maybe work on new YouTube related apps like "Banner Maker" where you can go and edit or make your own YouTube banner and link your channel to the app so it can upload your new or improved banner to your channel instantly.
My Subscription feed will not load
by User1136 on 2015/08/04 14:28
I've tried everything, but it will not load.
Terrible
by Christian250 on 2015/08/04 14:24
Why is it that whenever you guys update this app it causes more problems than it fixes? Seriously, I can't open this app without encountering at least 2 bugs. Almost every time I'm watching a video and want to change the orientation of the screen the audio becomes out of sync with the video or I could get about half way through the video then it starts from the beginning but the audio keeps going. It seems like with every update you just seem to find a way to make the app more frustrating. I suggest you update it soon and this time do it right!
Videos don't load
by Trevor Burns on 2015/08/04 13:28
Video plays for one second before pausing, no matter how much it's buffered. Doesn't work on the chrome or safari app either. Good job YouTube. You did it!
Really?!
by Hazerddex on 2015/08/04 13:03
You removed the shuffle button on playlists?! Give it back also still can't see anotations

Wayy to many problems now
by _a_n_k_i_t_h_a_ on 2015/08/04 10:53
I used to love this app. Now it doesn't even try anymore... It keeps saying playback error even though my wifi is full and runs properly. Youtube please fix this!
Horrible

Just plain awful
Great app, suffers from minor glitches
by lifter5000 on 2015/08/04 09:36
I'm so grateful for 60 fps videos! The best update that has come out for mobile so far. However many glitches still remain which means still a 3 star rating. Also, something I found really annoying is how the mobile youtube site on safari insists switching to this app even though the app doesn't have all the features of the mobile site. It gets annoying when you have to delete the app just to use the site on safari.
Not liking the update
by Odalisc1 on 2015/08/04 09:32
As I watch my videos its start to black out every few seconds and I don't like the fact I have to keep clicking on the screen so it doesn't take me back to my lock screen
Not good. Just bad
by glazethedounut on 2015/08/04 08:34
I used to love YouTube before. But now it's just really really bad. I use YouTube every day and watch a lot of videos. But now with the new updates it crashes all the time. I love you YouTube today and it crashed more than 10 times. (This is pretty common when I use YouTube) sometimes when I'm watching videos the video slows down with the audio is still normal. It makes me mad because I have to slowly start the app all over again. And when I leave you two for a few seconds to check on notification such as Instagram or iMessage, YouTube will restart itself and it's just really annoying! Please fix this problem or I will find something else
Complete trash
by JealousBishop on 2015/08/04 08:25
There has been so much problems since this update. It's become so unreliable due to constant screen orientation bugs. I'm watching a video and pause it for whatever reason in full screen and when I try to in pause again, it becomes unresponsive. This means constant exiting out of the app and restarting it. It happens all the time. Do you guys even pay attention to the reviews? This app is horrible, almost unusable.
Can't watch any videos
by Plane landing on 2015/08/04 07:56
I went to watch a video after update now it won't work can't even watch shot videos it just won't load and I have it sitting their for an hour nothing so I am questioning why I even have the app if I can't even use it
Come on really?
by Lemonaidxoxo on 2015/08/04 07:34

YouTube crash
by Jesse pichardo on 2015/08/04 06:16
Pretty much every time I watch a video it crashes and goes to main menu
Worst official app
by Abounded khan on 2015/08/04 06:07
I cannot believe that the app is really that bad, it's sad to use it.
Glitches!!
by Empire Rocks! on 2015/08/04 05:55
Every time I'm watching a video and have to back out or want to fast forward. For some reason the audio will be fine and in sync with the time but the video feed will go back to the beginning and if I try to rewind or fast forward, at the time where the glitch started the new time becomes the beginning of the video.
Update broke
by Dhkthkdjcigjsi on 2015/08/04 05:48
I have been using YouTube for a while and have had few problems until your latest update. What will happen is randomly, my phone won't let do anything with the video I'm watching. That means it won't let me pause it, play it, exit it, and etc. The only I can fix this us by resetting my phone and it does this 5 times a day. Fix this now! Omega signing off.
Annoying glitch
by 123:( :( etc on 2015/08/04 05:42
Whenever I am watching a video the videos audio working but it's the video is pretty much restarting because it's showing the video from that start
I love the update!
by Nali Phommavong on 2013/08/23 01:22
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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 2015/01/10 03:53
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.
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
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
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.
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...
An piece of trash
by thatdumpster on 2015/01/03 04:15
There is nothing more annoying than this app. It has so many bugs and glitches that you will throw your device across the room because this piece of trash crashes so much for no reason. You scroll down a long description, it goes blank and crashes. You watch a video in not full screen, it crashes. You open the app, it crashes. This piece of garbage also has an immeasurable amount if bugs and glitches that you can have fun finding them your self, it's not hard. Google spent like 4 bucks on this app and I could make a better app off welfare. If you want an app that had more than a 3 minute development, play ANY other app ever, I can almost ensure that you'll have a better experience. If you have a day without this app glitching on you in any way, tell me. All in all, the billion dollar company google needs to spend more than 3 minutes on their apps. Worst of all is that no matter how good you wifi connection is, this app will almost always buffer for a millennium and then go to 144p for no reason. I thought I would have a better experience on the 3DS and it managed to crash on that. I never knew that was possible. If you want an app that deserves -3 stars, God bless your soul and download this.
Nice improvement
by Fawkzzzzz on 2014/03/22 20:00
Wow google really improved this app since last time I downloaded it and it kept crashing before I could even use it. I really like the UI layout and all the different options. So far I've only encountered a minor problem with the app, sometimes it doesn't show some comments. For example, I see a comment and I tap more replies or whatever it's called, and it basically shows one or more blank comments with usernames and other people replies to those blank comments. I see people complaining about the play button in the middle of the screen, to be honest I thought it's gonna be a huge problem for me, but so far it hasn't been a problem at all, also you can just tap anywhere on the video screen and it will go away and you can see the video clearly while its paused. Overall it's a pretty good app, now the only thing that would make it the best is if google added offline viewing option. Make it unable to save to camera roll or to use it anywhere else other than the app or something, that would be really cool.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
Great App But It Can Be Greater!
by TY_DaSmartGuy 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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a joke
by Blob of vomit on 2015/07/31 01:34
Now I love the way the app is designed and how it runs but first off, WHY DID YOU TAKE DOWN OVER 30 OF MY VIDEOS!? Do you even know the amount of time I put into each and every one of them? Even my most popular videos were taken down due to misleading title or tags when I clearly did not do anything like that! Another thing is that if you try to rewind the video your watching the whole thing gets messed up and you have to wait years just for it to play a downscaled quality than the one I already selected. There are constant playback errors and if you try to upload a video from the app it just says pending upload and never completes! Sometimes the screen gets screwed up so bad that you have to restart the app completely just to get back to the video screen. Also when the video auto changes quality the audio skips like 400 times and makes the video not enjoyable. The only reason why I give this 2 stars instead of one is because I do like the layout of the app but until there is a major update that fixes this crap you won't be seeing a 4 star or 5 star review anytime soon.
A Complete Failure
by rommel45 on 2014/06/12 02:03
The newest version, 2.7.0, is even worse than I expected it to be. The "bug fixes" this time around involved breaking the search function. Now, instead of a list of ten or so items ghat appear as you type, there are three, which include previous searches no matter what you have typed. Auto-completion of search queries have been removed in favor of filling my feed with channels I don't want to watch. Luckily, however, the app crashes every fifteen minutes, so there is a way to clear the search history. I'm still waiting for the delete playlist button to be on the playlist's menu, not on my channel. Until there's a way to remove unwanted "recommendations" from my feed, I will never know when my friends upload videos. This app was barely functional to begin with, but the navigation and layout is broken so far beyond repair that watching a two-minute video becomes akin to scaling a mountain. Until more emphasis is placed on the videos and less on making the layout as user-unfriendly as possible, this will remain one of the worst apps I've ever used. Just get AdBlock and stick with a computer. At least there you'll have some control.
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
Better Off Using Safari
by Random Rater's Random Reviews on 2014/07/04 20:17
As the title states, Safari does a lot better at showing videos than this. First, the quality for most videos become so terrible that I must change the quality so that it has to work. ALL THE DARN TIME. Second, your history is not fully recorded thus it being difficult finding really old videos you would like to watch again. To add, (even though this isn't just the App) most videos are un viewable because they aren't set to your platform? I understand one or two videos are fine, but when the only black veil brides video you can watch on mobile is the official single video itself while 9000 others aren't, there's a problem. It's not only annoying, but stupid since everyone will see these videos despite what they use. Finally, commenting is the worst to do on my device. Even reading older comments is a hassle! I can reply to some of them, while others, I can just report. Overall, while some good features, most of it is pointless since it's only job is to allow a decent watching experience that can be accomplished on any browser or app.
Needs rewind buttons and background playing
by Linguini15 on 2015/07/02 18:48
I haven't had many problems with this app. But, whenever I try to rewind a video, I either pass the place I wanted it or it freezes. One thing I would like is to make scrubbing easier or add a rewind button to make going back in a video easier. Another thing I would like added is a "continue playing in background" or "play while locked" option. I like listening to music on the app. But, when I want to lock my phone, it stops the music and I have to keep the app unlocked and open at all times. It's really annoying when I don't want my phone on in my pocket, but I want to listen to music with my headphones. Please make it possible to keep videos and music playing after locking the phone or going into multitasking. It would really help me and a lot of other people who are probably having the same problem. I would rate 4.5, but 4 is all I can currently give. Thank you if you read this review and please consider adding the suggested items to your update list. Then it will be worth a full five stars. UPDATE: The app is wonderful with the 60fps option! Pc gaming videos have never been more clear! But, it's only in 720p and there's a lot of pixelation. If it's possible to add a 1080p with 60fps, that would be fantastic! There's already an app that has a great 1080p option, but not with 60fps. So, only because of the 60fps is why I'm not deleting this app straight off my phone. Please consider updating!
The app if fine, people are just ignorant
by Reygarzajunior on 2014/12/12 00:48
The app if great, the people here are just complaining over features they can do on their own but are complaining over the fact they have to do it themselves, the only problem I have, the ONLY I've ever had, is the fact comments are impossible to reply with because when the screen to rep,y shows up, I can't see what I'm typing and most of the time, if I hit cancel or reply, the app crashes. One thing that needs to be added however if replying to comments that are replies to the main comment. I don't want to reply to the main comment when I want to respond to the reply for the main comment. Just a small thing nothing major. Seriously though, I have no problem with this app whatsoever, if you have a problem with it, then too bad, don't come on here and hate the creators, what if it's your device? Anyways if you are depnding on these "reviews" to make you decide wether downloading the app or not, ignore them and try it out yourself.
You are all correct!!!
by odedo1 on 2015/07/13 23:07
I've discovered those problems that you complain about years ago and it's on like 2 third of all Apps, so I came out with a solution. With today hard drive prices keep dropping and the capacity of memory is growing so I bought myself a 3 TERA USB HD, and I back up all my Apps (especially the old ones ), I've discovered that if you open iTunes while holding the shift button you get options like creating a new iTunes library or choosing one of many that you already created, I can creat as many iTunes library's with my choice of names which I usually choose the date as the new iTunes library and place them anywhere I wish just like on my 3 TERA USB HARD DRIVE and this lets me keep all versions of all Apps and in a dated order, it's also good for installing Apps on older devices because as you all know many Apps today won't install unless you upgrade to the latest iOS but older devices won't upgrade any more so it's always good to have a collection of older dated Apps. Hope this will help you guys in the future!
Good, but needs some improvements
by DanieltheGreat4 on 2013/08/20 19:18
I like the way you can minimize the video in a multitasking way! Unfortunately, that seems to be the only improvement. The new interface seems really messy. The description box doesn't load fully, and you have to scroll through the suggested vids in order to get to the comments. And one problem with the comment section is that you can't reply to a specific comment and you can't click and access a commenter's channel. However, the most annoying thing about this app is that there is no back button. In order to go back to your search results, YOU HAVE to minimize the video and pause it if you thought it was annoying. I liked the tabs style, where you can click for either the description box, comments, or suggested video. It was much cleaner. I pretty much wished they added the option to minimize video but kept the old interface the same. Again, way too crowded on an iPod/iPhone, but probably fine on iPad.
I'm really sick of this.
by Lcc227 on 2014/07/11 14:59
I've honestly had enough of this app. I watch videos on safari now instead. There are so many problems with every video that I watch! (I'm on an iPhone 5s by the way) I'll open a video and after 10 seconds the video will freeze and buffer for another 10 seconds. And when it finally starts playing again, the quality is terrible, and if I try to turn the quality. up, it freezes the video again, so I have to wait there for the video to play again. And once it starts playing again, usually it restores itself to a better quality, but then 10 seconds later it freezes again, and the cycle continues through the whole video. There are also times where the video will start buffering, but won't fix itself, so I have to go back in the video, but if I try to go forward or backward in the video at all, it just freezes the video even more, and then the app crashes! There are lots of other issues that I've experienced, but none that have really bothered me. It's all the playback issues that annoy me. Hopefully they fix these issues so I can stop watching my videos on safari.
Screen rotation issues (sometimes)
by Shiz_Kababz on 2015/07/30 05:56
I really like this app but this one bug makes me so mad. Say I'm watching a video and, it happens randomly, when I tap the screen while in full screen to see how much time is left in the video the icons don't show up and that's when I know something's wrong. The video keeps playing and I turn my phone to portrait view and the screen doesn't respond to anything. I tap and nothing happens. So I decide to turn it back to landscape and it rotates but doesn't go full screen. So imagine the screen cut into three rectangles. The biggest one on the bottom and the other two on top side by side. In the top left hand corner is the video and the one next to it is just black. The bottom larger rectangle is the video name and all of that jazz. The screen still won't respond so I double click the home button to bring up multitasking and swipe it away. I go back into the app and I have to find the same video again. When I click on it it brings it up and luckily to the same spot most of the time. So sometimes I have to find my spot and I could have already finished the video. This the only bug I have too.
The latest update changed the whole app and is terrible!!!
by Jared V. on 2013/09/06 23:13
Do NOT get the latest update of this app. The last version was wonderful, and I would rate it 5 stars. The latest version that just came out is glitchy, subscriptions don't update unless you force quit the app and come back in, the ability to navigate is diminished from the previous version in favor of a kind of picture-in-picture multitasking pane. Commenting on videos is horrible where you can easily delete what you've written if you try to move back and forth with your finger to review what you've written. The panes move also and there is an X that deletes what you've written that you can easily hit with your finger. The actual video page for each video is now all over the place in terms of the important elements. The whole thing is awkward, clunky, and in many ways counterintuitive in terms of natural usage. I've already provided their developers with some feedback about things, particularly the subscriptions not updating properly. Let's hope they get this mess fixed quickly. I have confidence they will. In the meantime, steer clear of the Update button on this app.
Orientation problems
by 2626262626262626 on 2015/07/25 05:55
Since the update I've been having orientation problems. This would happen randomly but has happened many times over. As I flip my screen sideways or tap the fullscreen button, it would flip the screen off into a corner, minimizing or cutting off the screen. Everything around it is black and would continue minimizing or going off screen as I flip it. I've tried flipping it many times to see if I could fix it, it only worked once so far but flipping it once more would mess it up again. It can also go to the point of going completely off screen. Note, the video plays normally during all this. The only way of fixing it would be to restart the app, but that is temporary. There are many other bugs such as a frozen screen while audio plays, but I'm guessing those are just connection problems. This bug is bugging me to the point of just wanting to watch it off the web. It's like trying to open a fridge that always jerks back closed when you're halfway.
Google aint the problem the app is
by rolfchoppa007 on 2014/03/30 12:03
Look we can all complain about the changes on the app. To me when I review I review if there are bugs and crashes and makes it not user friendly through said bugs and glitches. Just recently was watching a commentary over Alan Wake, something almost ritual for my weekend nights. Never before has the thing crashed DURING a video for no reason. It's not the playlist, the Internet is flawless on my end, nothing but this iPod is connected wirelessly. But it's the fact I can't watch this video for 5 mins is why I'm writing the review. Ill roll with googles punches but if they are gonna have an app they need to make it not crash. Sure safari crashes but that's if you go to a site riddled with ads and interfaces designed for mobiles and not for the typical desktop. But three crashes back to back for no reason. Not even a buffer signal, too! Google do whatever the heck you want, but please... If you can have the balls to make Google Glass you can invest a buck or two not making this thing crash. It wasn't like a lot of stuff happens on my screens.
Outright terrible
by Auggnation on 2015/05/20 01:51
Watching any video over 10 minutes I get subjected to at least 1 ad at beginning and then atleast 1 if not more ads during the video. The longer the video the more ads. Watched a 45 minute video tonight and then had 60 minutes of ads if I didn't skip them. Used to be ok with ads but as of right not I do not recommend this app in any way. By here is no excuse beside outright greed that would cause this. So ugly of an app I am ashamed to actually put it on any device. Please stop using us to make an extra billion. Beyond that super annoying that I can not send video quality lower than high def. I would love to have ability to set permanent video quality on network wifi so I can stream at the lower resolution I am comfortable with. I am on a college campus where streaming hD videos is near impossible but it's just as good of quality on my little 8 in screen if I choose 360 p and I don't get the constant buffering. The ads are beyond acceptable. 10 minutes then an ad up to 5 minutes long. Besides the same 2 ads showing every time it's more and more difficult to want to watch anything on any of this app.
Meh. Could be a lot better
by love18pink on 2014/07/18 21:50
I'm honestly very disappointed with this app. I've noticed recently that it automatically unsubscribes me from channels that I regularly watch. For example, I am subscribed to quite a few channels. But I guess I'm subscribed to what the app thinks is too many and will unsubscribe me from one channel in order to subscribe me to another. I was wondering why one of my favorite youtubers hadn't uploaded anything and that it didn't show up in my subscribed feed only to look up the youtuber in the search option and find that I was unsubscribed. This app has done this multiple times to me not to just one channel but to many others. I also really hate the organization format of this app. I don't know what it is but it just doesn't feel easy to use and is cluttered. I also hate the stupid "not available in this format" message. If it wasn't available then make it an option to not have videos that we can't watch anyway show up. Honestly wish they would fix some things and make the app easier to use and less stressful. Use safari instead.
subscription & playlist
by Q 3.0 on 2014/07/19 22:48
- It's fine but there's a few problems I have about 150 subscriptions it might be a little much but I scroll down the side menu and I can't get to all of my subscriptions. I like that it is in alphabetical order but it's very inconvenient that I have to search for the channel that I want to browse I should be able to scroll from a channel that starts with A to one that starts with Z if I were to subscribe to a channel like that. I might just need a newer iPhone but that's besides the point. - Also you should make it that I can listen to playlist while your not on the app you could update it so you can label the playlist music or video so if it's labeled music you'll be able to listen to it while your phone is off or your not on the app something along those Lines or at least my own playlist at least .
