Autolocking
by KingCori on 2016/05/27 09:18
Fix this bug. I'll be watching a video and my phone screen starts to dim and then it locks. It hasn't done this before this update. I know I can just tap and it won't lock but it shouldn't at all and I don't want to change my settings so that it never locks. Fix this please.
Old playlists
by Ethic debt on 2016/05/27 09:17

Videos won't load and nothing will play. I'm receiving messages that say 'video won't load'
Seriously?!?!
by Me1974jtw on 2016/05/27 04:19
Normally this app would be given a 5 star review...but after I got the update all this app does is freeze,crash,and at the moment it won't even load. Please fix it back to the way it was before because now the app doesn't even work.
Aweful
by JJ ain't gay on 2016/05/27 03:27

Can't see description or comments when viewing a video from watch later
What's up with this?
by Wolfa539 on 2016/05/26 23:27
I use this app all the time, but since the new update no videos will load. It just sits on a black buffering screen and I can't fix this no matter what I do. I tried reloading, closing YouTube then reopening it, and a I even uninstalled and reinstalled. It's quite an issue for me seeing as YouTube just doesn't load the videos, meaning it doesn't work at all, since videos are its main focus.
Sucks so bad
by Don't by bad app on 2016/05/26 23:14
This app sucks so bad it won't let me sign in and I am so irritated this really sucks and buffer takes forever I'm done
Great App / Suggestions
by DatPun on 2016/05/26 23:00
It's a great app, don't get me wrong, but I think you could add more things such as "Most recent videos" or "Most successful you tubers" The most recent videos will be where the most recent videos from anyone is there, and the most successful you tubers is based on subs, views, likes, or comments.
Bro foreal
by Tmhamerica on 2016/05/26 22:39
So apparently I can't change the quality of the video on phone because it's not supported fix this shit asap
Latest update
by AMoretra on 2016/05/26 22:18
I just downloaded the new update a couple of minutes ago and now I cannot watch any of the videos. It just says that there has been an error. The app was working perfectly fine right before I downloaded the update.
Needs a lot of updates
by j90skid on 2016/05/26 22:13
I would give this 2.5 if I could. The app itself is fast and easy but... it doesn't allow you to edit your profile at all or make a playlist which really drags it down! YouTube really needs to make this app the absolute best so people like me can enjoy it much more!
Almost there!
by Musiclover1680 on 2016/05/26 21:53
Getting better, still a couple playlists won't load but it's defiantly better.
Slow!
by drew369 on 2016/05/26 21:28
The last few updates with the new style interface leaves my iPad 2nd generation behind. Basically slower video loading and laggier movements. Plz fix or make a second YouTube app for older gen users. Definitely considering a new YouTube app or going in by Safari browser. This issue also applies to the chrome browser as well. Thanks for reading!
Shit

This fucking app doesn't work
Needs 4k upload option
by Mark Azali on 2016/05/26 20:42
Still needs 4k upload option
Kinda got worse
by MustacheSamurai on 2016/05/26 20:40
I love the YouTube app and I still do but it got worse with some of the new features like the next video button (that's right next to the pause button) and auto play turns on randomly. Fix or better yet get rid of them then I'll give 5 stars
🙄
by Utdutdhtdutdf on 2016/05/26 20:27
Used to actually load the videos now the ads or videos won't load and if they do it's horrible quality and it's not my wifi because I have all three bars pls have an update that actually works
Videos won't upload
by TristanXP on 2016/05/26 19:40
So normally the videos upload but now when ever I try to upload videos it just says error uploading you need to fix this I still love this app and the reason why I rated this app one star is because it won't let me upload videos please fix this
Issues on the iPhone 4
by Ryan Scheffert on 2016/05/26 19:04
Hey, so ever since a couple updates ago, I've been having a weird problem with the app on my old iPhone 4. The app often crashes when I try to open it (5/10 times actually) which is a bit annoying, but not as annoying as the next one. Sometimes when I'm watching a video, if I try to tap the screen to pause a playing video, it won't respond to touch or tilt, so I have to keep closing the app and opening it again.
Updated
by MR@G on 2016/05/26 19:04
Use this app all the time. Usually 5 stars. After recent update on iPad Pro 9.7, now says "error loading video"and no longer works. Please fix
can we get a dark mode? please?
by AmplifiedLife on 2016/05/26 18:52
the all white launch screen is so bright my eyes have to adjust before i can even watch a video. its ridiculous.

by trawest on 2016/05/26 17:44
Background play should be available without YouTube red.
Quality selection over network
by MoyuZ777 on 2016/05/26 17:29
I would love the ability to select the quality of my videos on the fly and not be connected to wifi to be able to do it. Thanks
Desync Issues
by asphyxiate20 on 2016/05/26 16:41
Audio/video desync happens fairly often when you switch between normal and full screen view while a video is playing. The audio keeps going normally but the video will skip back a few minutes. Extremely frustrating.
PLEASE FIX IT
by PreviouslySatisfied on 2016/05/26 16:29
This last update seems to have wrecked this app. I'm pretty sure I've gotten more errors in the past day than I have in the past six months. Loading errors, showing I have no connection even though other apps using the Internet still work, etc. This was one of the most seamless apps until the last few updates... Now it's one of the most frustrating...

Love YouTube hate the new update
by Stmbt. Bryan on 2016/05/26 14:09
I have been trying to watch videos since yesterday evening and I'm not available to look up how to videos or watch any of the suggested videos that are on the main screen of YouTube through my iPad. I see that there was recently an update and it is a piece of junk. Please fix it.
Latest Update
by JBrew_94 on 2016/05/26 13:42
The latest update caused a major issue. I can no longer even watch videos. Every time I try to play one, the app says, "Error Loading Video". I'm really hoping the problem is fixed soon. Thanks.
Update is simply confusing
by Desireepullerr16 on 2016/05/26 12:51
Nothing loads anymore I'm constantly refreshing my wifi because I think it's my connection but everything else works fine so it can't be. Videos will not load with 1080p setting has to be on 480 or lower. And still sometimes that doesn't even work.
should be better, a lot better - plus poor update documentation
by Slug Face on 2016/05/26 11:29
1. Too slow to load videos. Organization needs to invest in many, many, many servers local to customers, particularly in NY - NJ area. Maximum time to wait for a video to start playing should be 5 seconds. 2. Application should retain buffered videos across suspension or rewind. Why should viewers have to start over again just because they choose to use multitasking capabilities of their devices? 3. Too hard to find how to see subscriptions and favorites, also subscription view should default to video, not activity. 4. as always, too many ads. should be no more than four minutes of ads per hour of actual content. if i wanted to see advertisements more frequently, i'd watch television. 5. too many ads are scams, need ability to report them. 6. All updates should have complete descriptions of what bugs are being fixed, what changes have been made, and what enhancements and functionality has been changed. Without this, I will give the app a low rating.
App won't load at all !!!!

I like YouTube... Everyone does! But why is with the automatic start the next video thing? I hate it! Please take off that feature! I also dislike the plethora of commercials, but I at least understand that one. You guys gotta make money. But seriously the auto play for the next song is stupid!

Tv queue
by Aspire7 on 2016/05/26 02:04
I absolutely hate the mandatory tv queue. How do I close out a video when my app is connected to the tv? Think, YouTube! It's gay, get rid of it or at least give us the option to use tv queue or not.

Only problem I have is, about 5 hours of watching videos the video freezes but the red line extends (the one that says what time your at on the video). But that just means I need a break, besides that very little bug it's a perfect app
Video stops but ado keeps playing bug

The video will stop but the audio keeps going which is really annoying please fix.
Bug Fix Please
by Supertiman on 2016/05/25 22:23
Every time there is an ad at the start of the video, the video just does not load. It makes me really angry because if you try to close the video or click another video, the screen freezes. Even if you close the app and come back to the same video, the ad is still there and never loads. Will someone please fix this it is extremely irritating.

by All032905 on 2016/05/25 21:19
I absolutely love YouTube it's amazing except for one thing, and that is that I wish that we could turn off our devices and still listen to it because who wants to drain battery life. Otherwise I love the app and use it everyday.
Good, but bad
by Wild_Rushn on 2016/05/25 21:16
It has the potential, but if the app maker listens to the reviews here, it might get a better rating. Also, go back to the original layout before the huge thumbnail picture thing. I can't see all the videos in an area without scrolling more and more down. Or at least have an option to change the size of it.
Loading...

It used to work great but now I can't rewind cause the rewind button is blank, I even tried pressing done and it still blank, the only thing I can do is pause and fast forward, I also did this without the app but the rewind button isn't black like it's supposed to be, it's gray.

YouTube
by Piu-Viu on 2016/05/25 18:28
Отличное приложение, но чем дальше обновляется, тем чаще виснет. При просмотре видео, приложение может стать не активным, нельзя нажать на паузу или выбрать какую либо другую функцию, при этом видео может идти, а может и не идти, как-то работает на свое усмотрение, и тогда приходиться перегружать приложение! Так может повторятся еще несколько раз!
Needs to allow screen to lock
by ReetReetRat on 2016/05/25 18:03
Why must I sacrifice my phones life to listen to songs put on YouTube why would you design an app like this in the first place apps are supposed to be convenient
YouTube USED to be my fav app
by @ForTodayAlex on 2016/05/25 17:20
As if YouTube ain't rich enough you're asking us to pay monthly for these services without ads. Cool I get it. Yea I ain't paying monthly but still wanna watch my fav you tubers without ads playing every video. I played video after video constantly getting ads so I said f that and deleted the app. Start caring for your costumers again... Ya know the poor ones that can't affor your monthly utube red sh*t. #PissedOff@UTube
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!!!

Needs to fix video category for channels!!
by Urmomsbitch on 2016/02/04 06:30
I love the app, and i love all of the channels I am subscribed to and there content. However, when I go to a youtubers channel to see their list of videos on my ios it is just a blank screen. Sometimes I do not have time to watch all the videos in my sub box so later I would go to the individuals channel and look at their most recent videos to enjoy them. But just recently, for ios, it wont load, it doesnt say it cant load it is just blank, so i go to the channels home page, but not always are their most recent videos up in there. And if you still are unaware of the slight but bothering problem, when you click on a channel of anyone it loads everything just fine except the category that says VIDEOS. There are five categories on the ios the first being home, then videos, playlists, channels, then about. The videos category shows the most recent videos, but wont load. Have to go to the home everytime to watch the newest video. And it wouldnt be a problem except it sometimes only has the some of the new videos. But for the most part if i cant find it in my sub box then i can find the newest video from 6 months ago on the individuals channel. Thank you for reading, and please I would love for this to get fixed soon, and im glad that the playlist deletion glick that doesnt get deleted got fixed.
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.
Buggy, inconvenient mess
by Zombuddy on 2015/11/16 20:46
Somehow, someway, this app has just gotten worse and worse with each update. The last interface we were provided with was simple, easy-to-use, and not nearly as buggy, but Google has once again destroyed the app. As of now, the glitches are endless and the inconvenient layout just makes the experience worse. The playback error issue that won't play your video unless you shut your wifi persists. Visuals desync from the audio and start over from the beginning while the audio continues towards the end of nearly every video, which makes most videos unwatchable without closing the video and launching it again. The age-old issue of video quality randomly dropping has still not been fixed. For some reason, the search bar cuts out, making it impossible to search for something without rebooting the app. The function of going full screen by turning your phone doesn't work the majority of the time, and the controls often lock up while in windowed mode or attempting to check your inconveniently-placed subscriptions. Please, Google, just revert the format and fix all the aforementioned bugs and the numerous ones I had forgot. The majority of these issues have existed for years without any resolve. Also, where the **** is the back button? As for the readers, I strongly don't recommend this app in its current condition. There are a plethora of reasons for such low ratings on such a popular media platform.
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!
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.
Change it back!
by Omonkey 14 on 2015/12/28 06:04
I am very unhappy with the new layout. It does not fit my needs. My needs are very simple you have messed with them. You will not be forgiven until I get my old layout back. You know, the layout with the description of the video and the comments in separate columns. That layout gave me joy. That is what I was used to on my IPad. You are not fixing anything with the new layouts. I will now have to get friendly with a new one. It will take time to adapt but I guess I could do it. The problem you should be fixing is the constant reports of the app crashing. You don't need to change how the app looks every once in a while. I would say if you like to make these new layouts allow them to be made, but allow an option to let the user change back to its former layout. Do not take this power like an ad with constant notifications. I do not want it to be like my IPad; it enjoys notifying me whenever I am available to update it. I want the old layout back. It makes me sad. On a side note, you should use better photos for the advertising on the Appstore. They look grainy and make me uncomfortable. I will not thank you for your time because you are not forgiven until you change it back. Also, thanks for letting me write this to go to sleep. I must wake up tomorrow to shave so I can get to my favorite toy as soon as possible. Bye
Update is not worth your time.
by Kidomaru97 on 2013/08/22 18:04
The new update is not only terribly designed, and hard to navigate, but it's new "functionality" doesn't function well at all. It not only doesn't refresh the video when you leave (which in my terms, helped a lot when the video went blurry), but the new playlist buttons on the screen are (in my opinion) not welcome. When I use these, I happen to tap these icons and go on to the next video in the playlist. It also restarts the video when I switch back, forcing me to find my place if I don't remember. The only way to avoid this if you wish to check your time watched on the video, you have to click the very center of the screen only. Not only this, but where is my button option to add to favorites? And why is the video and/or ad caption removed from the screen? Why did you think this new like button, being much smaller than the first, as well as outside of the video, would be much better? And how does putting the youtuber's name on the bottom instead of the top make it more visible? And what on earth made you think this new system was better? The only good thing you honestly did, was add the video suggestion option in the video page. But even that wasn't necessary, as "What to Watch" allowed much better recommendations. If I didn't have to rate this, I would defiantly give it 0/5 stars. Just don't update it, you're better off.
Unnecessary Changes
by Greenjosh123 on 2014/03/18 04:49
I usually never write reviews but the update was so bad that I had to write one. In case you're used to the normal video layout, Google went ahead and changed it again. The pause button is now ON the video screen of where your watching the video. It also dims the screen while pausing/playing and the pause/play button shows every time you tap the screen. This makes it inconvenient for people who would just like to see what time they're at in their video or people who only use one hand to watch. And now the number of likes or dislikes are now shortened to using 'k' for the number or thousands. I don't see why Google is making such a step back from the play button being on the lower left to being where you happened to be looking at what content you are watching, or changing the perfectly fine numbers to be different. The playlist addition to the menu was a nice touch, though. Another thing I don't get is how the top comments work. Usually the first top comment should be the one with the most likes, but for some reason the VERY top comment is a couple scrolls down, but even then, there could be another comment with even more attention that you wouldn't know about. The first top comment usually only has about one or two likes. Overall this app used to be okay, but I'm starting to lose hope in Google "improving" their video service.
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.
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.
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...
Could be better
by J10nbomb on 2014/07/01 14:40
I used to have a big problem with videos randomly dropping in quality, sometimes to completely unwatchable levels, until I realized I could avoid this by turning off auto video quality but I wish I didn't need to go and change from auto to 720p every time I watch a new video (it would be nice to have an option somewhere to choose what quality videos automatically open in or even if the app remembered what you set the last video to play in). Even more annoying is that links now go to the browser instead of opening in app. If I'm watching a video in the app and I click a link to another video or channel I want to continue using the app, not switch to chrome. I like that you can reply to comments now but the commenting is still shotty. You can only reply to an original comment, not to someone's response to a comment, and as other people have said some comments at the beginning of a chain of replies won't show making it difficult to follow a conversation being held in the comments of a video. I did like the design of the app before this last update when it showed how recently a video in your subscriptions was uploaded but small style changes I can get over. Im on an ipad 2 by the way.
I never write reviews, but this is awful.
by Almansrule on 2015/10/06 02:07
From a company like Google, this app is an absolute piece of trash. It has problems with AirPlay, as in it will break and show a "playback error" after buffering for too long, After that will refuse to continue playing any subsequent videos to the Apple TV once the app is switched out of, or the phone is locked until the app is restarted. The next problem is the fact that while the app may look pretty, it organizes information terribly, giving very little in the way of what your subscriptions are putting out. Another problem to do with subscriptions is that it reorders and removes them all the time, with no option to do it manually or disable this "feature". There is no way to organize subscriptions in folders like there is online, and overall the subscription experience is lacking. The final gripe that I have with this app is that it is slow, for no apparent reason the video will not begin to play, nor will any video until the app is restarted. This happens often as well. It's just an overall choppy and unpleasant experience. A lot of this may sound like nit picking, but if you use the app frequently this can make the experience unbearably slow, and besides this is Google, a company that I respect greatly, yet they release this garbage and deserve to be called out on it.
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
New update
by Goblahcuzthersnomorenicknames on 2015/08/25 21:29
I always come on here after every update to explain my difficulties, so here we go again. The slick/ thin look of the video at the bottom looks nice but it is a total nightmare, I try to rewind and I can't even touch it cause it's so small, so please we need the old one back. Also when I leave the app to check a text the whole video starts at the beginning which aggravates the crap out of me. I liked the old times where it would hold your spot, maybe take you back a few seconds but still it held your spot. I sometimes watch let's plays that are 1-2 hours long and when that happens it drives me insane and even if I leave my room to go to the bathroom and my phone falls asleep it does it. Not cool man not cool. I also really don't like the subscription box, it looks nice but it takes me forever to actually find something cause the icons are so big, what happened to just having us read it ... It was a lot better that way. All in all this is probably the worst update ever, sorry it just is. You guys are now focusing on looks instead of function which NO ONE CARES ABOUT LOOKS! We just want to watch videos that youtubers create. We want to watch art. But we can't if we get a message during a video... Sorry big rant this time ... Probably will be another for the next update so see you later.
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.
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...
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.
Never again!
by TheD1VA on 2015/11/18 04:21
What the heck??? You want to charge $14 now for a still unfixed app! It's even worse now, it doesn't pop up with my recommended favorites then the advertised ones or vice versa even. Fav list you have to pay for. The video-sound syncing is off now. Rebooting video &/or app if I have to pause for a minute. I can't believe you don't listen to your customers! Please at least give a revision to go from the white/red version back to the red/white! As buggy as that was, it was a dream compared to this! Don't update if you don't have to!!! While you rake in billions or trillions of $$$ why make us pay more??? Is it less buggy? NO! Due to this alone I cancelled this, and anything related to google in any shape or form! Going to join a "you-tube-google" boycott until you at least give us the option of reverting back to more stable versions! And should I need a "tube" fix? I will pay a 1 time 1-3$ fee for an app that allows that to be viewed in an easier format! You'll never get the google+ fee again, nor the $14 fees requested for you tube EVER! I have a working antiquated version on an equally antiquated computer, that I will enjoy all the same without the ads IF I ever decide I need to watch but til then I am joining the google services boycott 4ever!
Great way to get my videos.
by The hobbit eman on 2016/05/11 21:10
This is really good. I love how easy it is to watch my videos, upload videos, and subscribe. I also love how easy it is to add things to playlists and watch later. One problem is sometimes when it updates the watched thing that comes up overtop of the video if you have already watched it disappears. One thing that would make this app the best thing in the world is if you could record your screen threw the app. A lot of people who have this app would want to make gaming videos. It would be really cool if you could. Other then that best app ever. Update: Ever since the new version of the app has come out I have been experiencing some troubles with the watched feature on my subscriptions feed. basically it says that I have watched some of the videos from channels I am subscribed to before I have even tapped to watch them. this is kinda annoying because I am subscribed to a lot of channels and I don't like having the app tell me that I've watched videos that I haven't. please fix this and I'll change my rating back to 5.
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.
Needs some fixing
by amanda_noelle2010 on 2012/10/02 15:36
Overall I like the look and the setup and how it's similar to the Facebook app. However, before on the other app, when wi-fi was enabled, the video played in amazing quality. Now the videos stay in a more pixelated quality regardless. It only loads so many comments and if you're looking for one that happened over an hour ago on one like say...the terrible call made during the Greenbay Packers vs. the Seattle Seahawks, then you're screwed. You don't have the ability to click on a user's name from their comment, or better yet, even their comment if you wanted to go to a link they provided. You also cannot like or dislike or really do anything pertaining to any comments made on the video. Does have more such results than the original app, though. There are some videos that only showed up on the desktop version, and if you tried to do this on the phone, it wouldn't work without flash. This app finds that video. For example the OFFICIAL music videos actually show up as the top result for songs on this one. I swear the old one was ONLY the "alternate" results. Just needs some improvement!
AWESOME, but one big problem...
by awesomenes42 on 2015/03/03 22:12
I use this app literally every single day! There's nothing wrong with the app besides some videos taking a long time to load here and there, but as you saw in the title, there's one big problem with it! (Or, at least in my opinion anyway.) like I said, some videos will take a while to load, but this is what leads to this big problem most of the time it happens. I use the app for so long during my free time, and after using it for about 45 minutes to an hour or so, the next video says it couldn't load! I always keep hitting the the screen to refresh it, but half a second after, it says the same thing! Sometimes it won't load because I lost Internet connection to my home for some reason, (not sure why that happens), but even when I get back on Internet, it still won't load any videos! The only way I can get it to start working isn't by sliding the page up, but by sliding off, (if you know what I mean), my phone! The only problem with that is the iPhone takes a while to turn back on completely! Please fix this problem! It's driving me insane!!!
Horrible version
by Vince Twu on 2015/09/22 15:31
1. Scrolling through subscribed channels means going horizontally, which is the shortest side of the phone. Can't see as many in one view unless you click the one tab to open them up in a whole new screen. This is less intuitive, not as convenient as the old way, and an ugly design. 2. User account gets its own page? I don't upload videos like thousands of other users, and this page is a waste. The only thing useful on there is the subscribed playlists. Wait, why is that in my account and not with the other subscriptions? Doesn't make any sense. 3. In the old version you could swipe to the right and pull out a menu/list of everything you need, like all your subscriptions and playlists and settings, and you could scroll through this, while the main focus of the app was on still the videos. It was nice and it felt like an advanced feature that more apps started adopting, seemingly after you introduced it (Facebook for example? Maybe? Can't remember exactly) but it seemed like you had something cool that worked really well, and it was intuitive and quick to use. Now everything takes more steps just to browse and easily see the videos I'm interested in.
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 Tyrell.Rawls on 2012/09/24 18:02
This is an amazing app. I love how user-friendly it is and I also love the layout. But, there are a few things that I believe will help improve this app and increase positive feedback, which in turn will increase downloads. Firstly, I think you should allow users to pause and play videos/audios by using their Apple headset. That way they could quickly pause or play a video/audio more rapidly. Another improvement that people would enjoy is the ability to play videos/audios in the background while navigating in other apps on your iPhone. This would be awesome! Lastly, it will be terrific if you could somehow enable users to scroll through a video/audio at different speed/tuning rates so that they could accurately get to the part of the video/audio that they desire most. With the slight modifications added onto what you already have, I would rate you guys 5 stars. Like I said before you guys did a great job with this app and I know you want it to be greater. Hope my feedback could be of some assistance. Take care. - Ty Rawls
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.
Problems with Videos/Quality
by SomeoneTellin on 2016/02/25 01:15
The main problem I'm having with this app is that my video will be, say, 9 minutes in, but for some reason, it starts playing the beginning of the video again, though keeping the correct audio for that portion of the video. This happens very often, and it's frustrating. Rewinding doesn't help. All you can do is close out the video and then pull it back up again. Having to do this for about every other video is irritating. Other than that, maybe making rewinding and fast forwarding videos more smooth would be much appreciated. As I just watch videos with this app, I like it very much, and would be happy to give it 5 stars if I could actually watch videos without so many hindrances. Thank you. Actually, I just wanted to add something that I appreciated. I like the "not interested" option on the home screen, because some of the things I'm recommended I am really not interested in, or I have no idea why it was recommended to me because it seems so random/weird/disturbing. So I like that feature, please keep it. Thanks again!
A decent replacement, but a sidegrade at best.
by Ratchet77 on 2012/10/01 17:29
This version is much prettier to look at and operates more like the site itself, making videos easier to find. It's also nice to have videos that don't end themselves when they're over, and more development on checking your subscriptions. However moving to different parts of videos can be difficult at times as the scrubbing bar does not respond. Videos also opt to drop their quality on their own should they fail to load fast enough, which is irritating as I'd rather just wait than stare at a low-FPS blur. And for those that made use of it, this one no longer overtakes the audio channel. That means no more playing videos, then closing the phone and double-tapping the home button to resume them with just audio, which saves battery immensely. I usually used this method to listen to Retsupuraes while at work... not anymore I guess. Overall, a decent app, but would much rather see the return of the old one along side this to give the people an option, or at least feature adaptation of the old app to this one.
Recent problems
by me in Alabama on 2015/04/15 00:35
I have used this app for quite a while without many problems but recently this app has stopped working almost completely. It freezes up constantly and when I try to play videos, there is a black screen every single time and the video never shows. The audio works sometimes. I have restarted my iPhone, deleted the app, and re-downloaded it but this problem still exists. Even before these problems, if I fast forward or rewind during a video it buffers and freezes and I end up having to exit the app and restart. I have also had an extremely annoying problem where it won't let me lock my iPhone with a video playing. Now I cannot go jogging and listen to music with earphones because it won't let me play it in the background on the lock screen! It used to let me do this and I don't know what happened. The constant freezing and black screen has only been happening in the past week. Everything is up to date and this could be a result of a recent software or app update, I don't know. This problem NEEDS to be fixed!!! I cannot even watch videos anymore.
Almost Broke My Phone
by Nice Going YouTube on 2016/01/06 06:01
He's how it went ok, I was just searching threw my subscription box and I clicked on a video. It sounds ok right? Nothing wrong at all. Until it took a bit to load and the video popped up and I could only see half of the screen on my phone so I could barely see what I was watching. Then the rest of the screen was completely black. It was very laggy and glitchy and it didn't let me back out of the video or press the home button. Then I tried restarting my phone and that didn't work. So it turned off but it would let me turn my phone back on, nothing was working and my phone was completely off and wouldn't turn on. At this point I didn't know what to do. Just a reminder it's 2:00 in the morning and I'm not going no where. So I tried waiting until my phone died so I can charge it and maybe it will turn back on but no. It ain't happening. So I waited around 15 mins and had to hold the home button and the power button for 15 secs and then it restarted my phone. Now I am happy that I can finally look at my beautiful phone and not a black screen. Surprised you've read this far, but thanks for reading. I just wanted to put this out there.
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.
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.
Terrible...
by Anthony221121 on 2015/08/17 03:49
This app is terrible. It's slow, it crashes, there's no multitasking, weird spot for the play/pause button since new update, no annotations, you can't choose quality on cellular networks, even over LTE which is the same speed as my WI-FI network, and during every video I watch the pixelation happens, ON A 80 MBPS WIFI NETWORK SPEED! Also on the menus it randomly sorts your subscribers so it is hard to find who you are looking for if you have a lot. Also, I really hate the positioning of the forward and back buttons when watching a playlist. I always tap them on accident and it's very annoying. Oh yeah and one last thing, they took out the scroll to top feature so If you were scrolling down to view the comments and want to look back at the description, you have to manually scroll all the way up. This needs a MAJOR update. Just terrible... Why google... Why... EDIT: Hey they released an update with more bugs! Now when you are in the middle of watching a video, the video randomly goes to the beginning and the audio continues. The only way to fix it is to completely close the video and open it again. Great. Thanks for providing more bugs Google.
...really, Google?!
by RagingBattles on 2015/10/13 04:08
"Why?" Is my only question. The app was great before. I could be watching a video while scrolling through my subbed channels and look at my history and channel without having to exit an entire video. Who do you think you're impressing? Because whoever it is, you've failed them. The colors are blinding, there's TONS of unneeded space and the overall design is lazy. I could've come up with a better one. The dropdown menu was great, as stated above, and the interface was much more user friendly. I cringe every time I see an update and hope you fix the problems. But no. "Bug fixes" and "full iOS 9 compatibility" is all I get. Don't even get me started on the crashing! I feel like you haven't been to the review section in a while, because your current rating is 1 and a half stars. You went to one of the best apps on the market to one of the worst and I doubt you even care. This has been going on for far too long and you need to listen to us. Change the app back. Make it good again. I'm tired of uninstalling and reinstalling to get the old version back and I'm sure everyone else is, too. So just do everyone a favor and CHANGE IT BACK.
Can see more potential
by Southern Fox on 2012/09/20 15:47
I would like if this had a history function so if I had to cut a video or two short, then I could go back and watch it. If it does, then it's really out of sight. Also, if it had the ability to view the youtuber's inbox. I'm getting too many spam videos and also respond to messages people send me or comment on their comment. And maybe, the ability to upload videos from the phone. Although better (using the term loosely) than the old built-in app, it needs a few more tweaking. But overall positive aspects is: That I can see ALL the people I'm subscribed to, and not just the hand full that the built-in app gave me (that's big to me). The pull down to update the video feed is needed, I hated having to go back and forth between videos or subscriptions to see new things. It's fairly quick to load up the people's video pages. I'm only having small problems so far, but I'm glad I downloaded this app. Because the iOS 6 update removed the old built-in app for me.
PLEASE FIX BLURRED VIDEO QUALITY
by Alpha 5000 on 2014/01/23 15:17
I for one love this app but it's frustrating and very annoying to see video quality degrade like this does. On my iPhone 4S it can go from super clear to where it's useless to even watch a video the way it blurs out which makes NO scenes to me to degrade a video quality to where it renders it useless. I always have to go to safari watch it there instead but much rather watch from the app while it's working right and ultra clear. I've downloaded update after update hoping it's an update to the my particular problem but always for some reason gets ignored. I assume this isn't an isolated issue? Please fix with next update. I can handle a little quality degradation but not when it's so blurry it hurts my eyes to even watch a video and can't make out anything on the video which all it's good for is listening to the sound which btw also goes down in quality but anyway please fix this and I'll give it 10 stars if I had that option but 5 for sure. Thanks
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!
Good app TERRIBLE update
by Itunesisthisnicknamegoodenough on 2016/05/11 12:11
I like the app but the new update has ruined many things. In my subscriptions tab all the videos say I have watched them even though I have not clicked on many of the videos. Videos freeze at a certain frame and the audio continues on. Then if I try rewinding the video to fix this the video skips to a random point much later in the video (ex: I was watching a video that froze around two minutes in the video. I tried rewinding to about 1:30. The video then skipped to around four minutes into the video and refused to rewind or fast forward to any other point until I closed the video). These didn't happen before I updated the app. Also autotube is a good thing if I choose to watch a playlist. I'm not watching a playlist. I am clicking on singular videos. It is good you can turn this feature off, but the arrows remain. It is easy to accidentally press these buttons and skip the video I actually chose to watch. This is extremely enraging. If you refuse to completely get rid of this feature at least make it optional in settings to remove it. Based on similar reviews I've read many people would like this option.
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!

Autolocking
by KingCori on 2016/05/27 09:18
Fix this bug. I'll be watching a video and my phone screen starts to dim and then it locks. It hasn't done this before this update. I know I can just tap and it won't lock but it shouldn't at all and I don't want to change my settings so that it never locks. Fix this please.

Seriously?!?!
by Me1974jtw on 2016/05/27 04:19
Normally this app would be given a 5 star review...but after I got the update all this app does is freeze,crash,and at the moment it won't even load. Please fix it back to the way it was before because now the app doesn't even work.

Can't see description or comments when viewing a video from watch later
What's up with this?
by Wolfa539 on 2016/05/26 23:27
I use this app all the time, but since the new update no videos will load. It just sits on a black buffering screen and I can't fix this no matter what I do. I tried reloading, closing YouTube then reopening it, and a I even uninstalled and reinstalled. It's quite an issue for me seeing as YouTube just doesn't load the videos, meaning it doesn't work at all, since videos are its main focus.
Sucks so bad
by Don't by bad app on 2016/05/26 23:14
This app sucks so bad it won't let me sign in and I am so irritated this really sucks and buffer takes forever I'm done
Great App / Suggestions
by DatPun on 2016/05/26 23:00
It's a great app, don't get me wrong, but I think you could add more things such as "Most recent videos" or "Most successful you tubers" The most recent videos will be where the most recent videos from anyone is there, and the most successful you tubers is based on subs, views, likes, or comments.

by Tmhamerica on 2016/05/26 22:39
So apparently I can't change the quality of the video on phone because it's not supported fix this shit asap
Latest update
by AMoretra on 2016/05/26 22:18
I just downloaded the new update a couple of minutes ago and now I cannot watch any of the videos. It just says that there has been an error. The app was working perfectly fine right before I downloaded the update.
Needs a lot of updates
by j90skid on 2016/05/26 22:13
I would give this 2.5 if I could. The app itself is fast and easy but... it doesn't allow you to edit your profile at all or make a playlist which really drags it down! YouTube really needs to make this app the absolute best so people like me can enjoy it much more!
Almost there!
by Musiclover1680 on 2016/05/26 21:53
Getting better, still a couple playlists won't load but it's defiantly better.
Slow!
by drew369 on 2016/05/26 21:28
The last few updates with the new style interface leaves my iPad 2nd generation behind. Basically slower video loading and laggier movements. Plz fix or make a second YouTube app for older gen users. Definitely considering a new YouTube app or going in by Safari browser. This issue also applies to the chrome browser as well. Thanks for reading!

Kinda got worse
by MustacheSamurai on 2016/05/26 20:40
I love the YouTube app and I still do but it got worse with some of the new features like the next video button (that's right next to the pause button) and auto play turns on randomly. Fix or better yet get rid of them then I'll give 5 stars
🙄
by Utdutdhtdutdf on 2016/05/26 20:27
Used to actually load the videos now the ads or videos won't load and if they do it's horrible quality and it's not my wifi because I have all three bars pls have an update that actually works
Videos won't upload
by TristanXP on 2016/05/26 19:40
So normally the videos upload but now when ever I try to upload videos it just says error uploading you need to fix this I still love this app and the reason why I rated this app one star is because it won't let me upload videos please fix this
Issues on the iPhone 4
by Ryan Scheffert on 2016/05/26 19:04
Hey, so ever since a couple updates ago, I've been having a weird problem with the app on my old iPhone 4. The app often crashes when I try to open it (5/10 times actually) which is a bit annoying, but not as annoying as the next one. Sometimes when I'm watching a video, if I try to tap the screen to pause a playing video, it won't respond to touch or tilt, so I have to keep closing the app and opening it again.
Updated
by MR@G on 2016/05/26 19:04
Use this app all the time. Usually 5 stars. After recent update on iPad Pro 9.7, now says "error loading video"and no longer works. Please fix
can we get a dark mode? please?
by AmplifiedLife on 2016/05/26 18:52
the all white launch screen is so bright my eyes have to adjust before i can even watch a video. its ridiculous.

Desync Issues
by asphyxiate20 on 2016/05/26 16:41
Audio/video desync happens fairly often when you switch between normal and full screen view while a video is playing. The audio keeps going normally but the video will skip back a few minutes. Extremely frustrating.
PLEASE FIX IT
by PreviouslySatisfied on 2016/05/26 16:29
This last update seems to have wrecked this app. I'm pretty sure I've gotten more errors in the past day than I have in the past six months. Loading errors, showing I have no connection even though other apps using the Internet still work, etc. This was one of the most seamless apps until the last few updates... Now it's one of the most frustrating...

I have been trying to watch videos since yesterday evening and I'm not available to look up how to videos or watch any of the suggested videos that are on the main screen of YouTube through my iPad. I see that there was recently an update and it is a piece of junk. Please fix it.
Latest Update
by JBrew_94 on 2016/05/26 13:42
The latest update caused a major issue. I can no longer even watch videos. Every time I try to play one, the app says, "Error Loading Video". I'm really hoping the problem is fixed soon. Thanks.
Update is simply confusing
by Desireepullerr16 on 2016/05/26 12:51
Nothing loads anymore I'm constantly refreshing my wifi because I think it's my connection but everything else works fine so it can't be. Videos will not load with 1080p setting has to be on 480 or lower. And still sometimes that doesn't even work.
should be better, a lot better - plus poor update documentation
by Slug Face on 2016/05/26 11:29
1. Too slow to load videos. Organization needs to invest in many, many, many servers local to customers, particularly in NY - NJ area. Maximum time to wait for a video to start playing should be 5 seconds. 2. Application should retain buffered videos across suspension or rewind. Why should viewers have to start over again just because they choose to use multitasking capabilities of their devices? 3. Too hard to find how to see subscriptions and favorites, also subscription view should default to video, not activity. 4. as always, too many ads. should be no more than four minutes of ads per hour of actual content. if i wanted to see advertisements more frequently, i'd watch television. 5. too many ads are scams, need ability to report them. 6. All updates should have complete descriptions of what bugs are being fixed, what changes have been made, and what enhancements and functionality has been changed. Without this, I will give the app a low rating.

Every time there is an ad at the start of the video, the video just does not load. It makes me really angry because if you try to close the video or click another video, the screen freezes. Even if you close the app and come back to the same video, the ad is still there and never loads. Will someone please fix this it is extremely irritating.

Good, but bad
by Wild_Rushn on 2016/05/25 21:16
It has the potential, but if the app maker listens to the reviews here, it might get a better rating. Also, go back to the original layout before the huge thumbnail picture thing. I can't see all the videos in an area without scrolling more and more down. Or at least have an option to change the size of it.

by Piu-Viu on 2016/05/25 18:28
Отличное приложение, но чем дальше обновляется, тем чаще виснет. При просмотре видео, приложение может стать не активным, нельзя нажать на паузу или выбрать какую либо другую функцию, при этом видео может идти, а может и не идти, как-то работает на свое усмотрение, и тогда приходиться перегружать приложение! Так может повторятся еще несколько раз!

by @ForTodayAlex on 2016/05/25 17:20
As if YouTube ain't rich enough you're asking us to pay monthly for these services without ads. Cool I get it. Yea I ain't paying monthly but still wanna watch my fav you tubers without ads playing every video. I played video after video constantly getting ads so I said f that and deleted the app. Start caring for your costumers again... Ya know the poor ones that can't affor your monthly utube red sh*t. #PissedOff@UTube
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!
Needs to fix video category for channels!!
by Urmomsbitch on 2016/02/04 06:30
I love the app, and i love all of the channels I am subscribed to and there content. However, when I go to a youtubers channel to see their list of videos on my ios it is just a blank screen. Sometimes I do not have time to watch all the videos in my sub box so later I would go to the individuals channel and look at their most recent videos to enjoy them. But just recently, for ios, it wont load, it doesnt say it cant load it is just blank, so i go to the channels home page, but not always are their most recent videos up in there. And if you still are unaware of the slight but bothering problem, when you click on a channel of anyone it loads everything just fine except the category that says VIDEOS. There are five categories on the ios the first being home, then videos, playlists, channels, then about. The videos category shows the most recent videos, but wont load. Have to go to the home everytime to watch the newest video. And it wouldnt be a problem except it sometimes only has the some of the new videos. But for the most part if i cant find it in my sub box then i can find the newest video from 6 months ago on the individuals channel. Thank you for reading, and please I would love for this to get fixed soon, and im glad that the playlist deletion glick that doesnt get deleted got fixed.
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.
Buggy, inconvenient mess
by Zombuddy on 2015/11/16 20:46
Somehow, someway, this app has just gotten worse and worse with each update. The last interface we were provided with was simple, easy-to-use, and not nearly as buggy, but Google has once again destroyed the app. As of now, the glitches are endless and the inconvenient layout just makes the experience worse. The playback error issue that won't play your video unless you shut your wifi persists. Visuals desync from the audio and start over from the beginning while the audio continues towards the end of nearly every video, which makes most videos unwatchable without closing the video and launching it again. The age-old issue of video quality randomly dropping has still not been fixed. For some reason, the search bar cuts out, making it impossible to search for something without rebooting the app. The function of going full screen by turning your phone doesn't work the majority of the time, and the controls often lock up while in windowed mode or attempting to check your inconveniently-placed subscriptions. Please, Google, just revert the format and fix all the aforementioned bugs and the numerous ones I had forgot. The majority of these issues have existed for years without any resolve. Also, where the **** is the back button? As for the readers, I strongly don't recommend this app in its current condition. There are a plethora of reasons for such low ratings on such a popular media platform.
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!
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.
Change it back!
by Omonkey 14 on 2015/12/28 06:04
I am very unhappy with the new layout. It does not fit my needs. My needs are very simple you have messed with them. You will not be forgiven until I get my old layout back. You know, the layout with the description of the video and the comments in separate columns. That layout gave me joy. That is what I was used to on my IPad. You are not fixing anything with the new layouts. I will now have to get friendly with a new one. It will take time to adapt but I guess I could do it. The problem you should be fixing is the constant reports of the app crashing. You don't need to change how the app looks every once in a while. I would say if you like to make these new layouts allow them to be made, but allow an option to let the user change back to its former layout. Do not take this power like an ad with constant notifications. I do not want it to be like my IPad; it enjoys notifying me whenever I am available to update it. I want the old layout back. It makes me sad. On a side note, you should use better photos for the advertising on the Appstore. They look grainy and make me uncomfortable. I will not thank you for your time because you are not forgiven until you change it back. Also, thanks for letting me write this to go to sleep. I must wake up tomorrow to shave so I can get to my favorite toy as soon as possible. Bye
Update is not worth your time.
by Kidomaru97 on 2013/08/22 18:04
The new update is not only terribly designed, and hard to navigate, but it's new "functionality" doesn't function well at all. It not only doesn't refresh the video when you leave (which in my terms, helped a lot when the video went blurry), but the new playlist buttons on the screen are (in my opinion) not welcome. When I use these, I happen to tap these icons and go on to the next video in the playlist. It also restarts the video when I switch back, forcing me to find my place if I don't remember. The only way to avoid this if you wish to check your time watched on the video, you have to click the very center of the screen only. Not only this, but where is my button option to add to favorites? And why is the video and/or ad caption removed from the screen? Why did you think this new like button, being much smaller than the first, as well as outside of the video, would be much better? And how does putting the youtuber's name on the bottom instead of the top make it more visible? And what on earth made you think this new system was better? The only good thing you honestly did, was add the video suggestion option in the video page. But even that wasn't necessary, as "What to Watch" allowed much better recommendations. If I didn't have to rate this, I would defiantly give it 0/5 stars. Just don't update it, you're better off.
Unnecessary Changes
by Greenjosh123 on 2014/03/18 04:49
I usually never write reviews but the update was so bad that I had to write one. In case you're used to the normal video layout, Google went ahead and changed it again. The pause button is now ON the video screen of where your watching the video. It also dims the screen while pausing/playing and the pause/play button shows every time you tap the screen. This makes it inconvenient for people who would just like to see what time they're at in their video or people who only use one hand to watch. And now the number of likes or dislikes are now shortened to using 'k' for the number or thousands. I don't see why Google is making such a step back from the play button being on the lower left to being where you happened to be looking at what content you are watching, or changing the perfectly fine numbers to be different. The playlist addition to the menu was a nice touch, though. Another thing I don't get is how the top comments work. Usually the first top comment should be the one with the most likes, but for some reason the VERY top comment is a couple scrolls down, but even then, there could be another comment with even more attention that you wouldn't know about. The first top comment usually only has about one or two likes. Overall this app used to be okay, but I'm starting to lose hope in Google "improving" their video service.
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.
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.
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...
Could be better
by J10nbomb on 2014/07/01 14:40
I used to have a big problem with videos randomly dropping in quality, sometimes to completely unwatchable levels, until I realized I could avoid this by turning off auto video quality but I wish I didn't need to go and change from auto to 720p every time I watch a new video (it would be nice to have an option somewhere to choose what quality videos automatically open in or even if the app remembered what you set the last video to play in). Even more annoying is that links now go to the browser instead of opening in app. If I'm watching a video in the app and I click a link to another video or channel I want to continue using the app, not switch to chrome. I like that you can reply to comments now but the commenting is still shotty. You can only reply to an original comment, not to someone's response to a comment, and as other people have said some comments at the beginning of a chain of replies won't show making it difficult to follow a conversation being held in the comments of a video. I did like the design of the app before this last update when it showed how recently a video in your subscriptions was uploaded but small style changes I can get over. Im on an ipad 2 by the way.
I never write reviews, but this is awful.
by Almansrule on 2015/10/06 02:07
From a company like Google, this app is an absolute piece of trash. It has problems with AirPlay, as in it will break and show a "playback error" after buffering for too long, After that will refuse to continue playing any subsequent videos to the Apple TV once the app is switched out of, or the phone is locked until the app is restarted. The next problem is the fact that while the app may look pretty, it organizes information terribly, giving very little in the way of what your subscriptions are putting out. Another problem to do with subscriptions is that it reorders and removes them all the time, with no option to do it manually or disable this "feature". There is no way to organize subscriptions in folders like there is online, and overall the subscription experience is lacking. The final gripe that I have with this app is that it is slow, for no apparent reason the video will not begin to play, nor will any video until the app is restarted. This happens often as well. It's just an overall choppy and unpleasant experience. A lot of this may sound like nit picking, but if you use the app frequently this can make the experience unbearably slow, and besides this is Google, a company that I respect greatly, yet they release this garbage and deserve to be called out on it.
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
New update
by Goblahcuzthersnomorenicknames on 2015/08/25 21:29
I always come on here after every update to explain my difficulties, so here we go again. The slick/ thin look of the video at the bottom looks nice but it is a total nightmare, I try to rewind and I can't even touch it cause it's so small, so please we need the old one back. Also when I leave the app to check a text the whole video starts at the beginning which aggravates the crap out of me. I liked the old times where it would hold your spot, maybe take you back a few seconds but still it held your spot. I sometimes watch let's plays that are 1-2 hours long and when that happens it drives me insane and even if I leave my room to go to the bathroom and my phone falls asleep it does it. Not cool man not cool. I also really don't like the subscription box, it looks nice but it takes me forever to actually find something cause the icons are so big, what happened to just having us read it ... It was a lot better that way. All in all this is probably the worst update ever, sorry it just is. You guys are now focusing on looks instead of function which NO ONE CARES ABOUT LOOKS! We just want to watch videos that youtubers create. We want to watch art. But we can't if we get a message during a video... Sorry big rant this time ... Probably will be another for the next update so see you later.
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.
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...
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.
Never again!
by TheD1VA on 2015/11/18 04:21
What the heck??? You want to charge $14 now for a still unfixed app! It's even worse now, it doesn't pop up with my recommended favorites then the advertised ones or vice versa even. Fav list you have to pay for. The video-sound syncing is off now. Rebooting video &/or app if I have to pause for a minute. I can't believe you don't listen to your customers! Please at least give a revision to go from the white/red version back to the red/white! As buggy as that was, it was a dream compared to this! Don't update if you don't have to!!! While you rake in billions or trillions of $$$ why make us pay more??? Is it less buggy? NO! Due to this alone I cancelled this, and anything related to google in any shape or form! Going to join a "you-tube-google" boycott until you at least give us the option of reverting back to more stable versions! And should I need a "tube" fix? I will pay a 1 time 1-3$ fee for an app that allows that to be viewed in an easier format! You'll never get the google+ fee again, nor the $14 fees requested for you tube EVER! I have a working antiquated version on an equally antiquated computer, that I will enjoy all the same without the ads IF I ever decide I need to watch but til then I am joining the google services boycott 4ever!
Great way to get my videos.
by The hobbit eman on 2016/05/11 21:10
This is really good. I love how easy it is to watch my videos, upload videos, and subscribe. I also love how easy it is to add things to playlists and watch later. One problem is sometimes when it updates the watched thing that comes up overtop of the video if you have already watched it disappears. One thing that would make this app the best thing in the world is if you could record your screen threw the app. A lot of people who have this app would want to make gaming videos. It would be really cool if you could. Other then that best app ever. Update: Ever since the new version of the app has come out I have been experiencing some troubles with the watched feature on my subscriptions feed. basically it says that I have watched some of the videos from channels I am subscribed to before I have even tapped to watch them. this is kinda annoying because I am subscribed to a lot of channels and I don't like having the app tell me that I've watched videos that I haven't. please fix this and I'll change my rating back to 5.
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.
Needs some fixing
by amanda_noelle2010 on 2012/10/02 15:36
Overall I like the look and the setup and how it's similar to the Facebook app. However, before on the other app, when wi-fi was enabled, the video played in amazing quality. Now the videos stay in a more pixelated quality regardless. It only loads so many comments and if you're looking for one that happened over an hour ago on one like say...the terrible call made during the Greenbay Packers vs. the Seattle Seahawks, then you're screwed. You don't have the ability to click on a user's name from their comment, or better yet, even their comment if you wanted to go to a link they provided. You also cannot like or dislike or really do anything pertaining to any comments made on the video. Does have more such results than the original app, though. There are some videos that only showed up on the desktop version, and if you tried to do this on the phone, it wouldn't work without flash. This app finds that video. For example the OFFICIAL music videos actually show up as the top result for songs on this one. I swear the old one was ONLY the "alternate" results. Just needs some improvement!
AWESOME, but one big problem...
by awesomenes42 on 2015/03/03 22:12
I use this app literally every single day! There's nothing wrong with the app besides some videos taking a long time to load here and there, but as you saw in the title, there's one big problem with it! (Or, at least in my opinion anyway.) like I said, some videos will take a while to load, but this is what leads to this big problem most of the time it happens. I use the app for so long during my free time, and after using it for about 45 minutes to an hour or so, the next video says it couldn't load! I always keep hitting the the screen to refresh it, but half a second after, it says the same thing! Sometimes it won't load because I lost Internet connection to my home for some reason, (not sure why that happens), but even when I get back on Internet, it still won't load any videos! The only way I can get it to start working isn't by sliding the page up, but by sliding off, (if you know what I mean), my phone! The only problem with that is the iPhone takes a while to turn back on completely! Please fix this problem! It's driving me insane!!!
Horrible version
by Vince Twu on 2015/09/22 15:31
1. Scrolling through subscribed channels means going horizontally, which is the shortest side of the phone. Can't see as many in one view unless you click the one tab to open them up in a whole new screen. This is less intuitive, not as convenient as the old way, and an ugly design. 2. User account gets its own page? I don't upload videos like thousands of other users, and this page is a waste. The only thing useful on there is the subscribed playlists. Wait, why is that in my account and not with the other subscriptions? Doesn't make any sense. 3. In the old version you could swipe to the right and pull out a menu/list of everything you need, like all your subscriptions and playlists and settings, and you could scroll through this, while the main focus of the app was on still the videos. It was nice and it felt like an advanced feature that more apps started adopting, seemingly after you introduced it (Facebook for example? Maybe? Can't remember exactly) but it seemed like you had something cool that worked really well, and it was intuitive and quick to use. Now everything takes more steps just to browse and easily see the videos I'm interested in.
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 Tyrell.Rawls on 2012/09/24 18:02
This is an amazing app. I love how user-friendly it is and I also love the layout. But, there are a few things that I believe will help improve this app and increase positive feedback, which in turn will increase downloads. Firstly, I think you should allow users to pause and play videos/audios by using their Apple headset. That way they could quickly pause or play a video/audio more rapidly. Another improvement that people would enjoy is the ability to play videos/audios in the background while navigating in other apps on your iPhone. This would be awesome! Lastly, it will be terrific if you could somehow enable users to scroll through a video/audio at different speed/tuning rates so that they could accurately get to the part of the video/audio that they desire most. With the slight modifications added onto what you already have, I would rate you guys 5 stars. Like I said before you guys did a great job with this app and I know you want it to be greater. Hope my feedback could be of some assistance. Take care. - Ty Rawls
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.
Problems with Videos/Quality
by SomeoneTellin on 2016/02/25 01:15
The main problem I'm having with this app is that my video will be, say, 9 minutes in, but for some reason, it starts playing the beginning of the video again, though keeping the correct audio for that portion of the video. This happens very often, and it's frustrating. Rewinding doesn't help. All you can do is close out the video and then pull it back up again. Having to do this for about every other video is irritating. Other than that, maybe making rewinding and fast forwarding videos more smooth would be much appreciated. As I just watch videos with this app, I like it very much, and would be happy to give it 5 stars if I could actually watch videos without so many hindrances. Thank you. Actually, I just wanted to add something that I appreciated. I like the "not interested" option on the home screen, because some of the things I'm recommended I am really not interested in, or I have no idea why it was recommended to me because it seems so random/weird/disturbing. So I like that feature, please keep it. Thanks again!
A decent replacement, but a sidegrade at best.
by Ratchet77 on 2012/10/01 17:29
This version is much prettier to look at and operates more like the site itself, making videos easier to find. It's also nice to have videos that don't end themselves when they're over, and more development on checking your subscriptions. However moving to different parts of videos can be difficult at times as the scrubbing bar does not respond. Videos also opt to drop their quality on their own should they fail to load fast enough, which is irritating as I'd rather just wait than stare at a low-FPS blur. And for those that made use of it, this one no longer overtakes the audio channel. That means no more playing videos, then closing the phone and double-tapping the home button to resume them with just audio, which saves battery immensely. I usually used this method to listen to Retsupuraes while at work... not anymore I guess. Overall, a decent app, but would much rather see the return of the old one along side this to give the people an option, or at least feature adaptation of the old app to this one.
Recent problems
by me in Alabama on 2015/04/15 00:35
I have used this app for quite a while without many problems but recently this app has stopped working almost completely. It freezes up constantly and when I try to play videos, there is a black screen every single time and the video never shows. The audio works sometimes. I have restarted my iPhone, deleted the app, and re-downloaded it but this problem still exists. Even before these problems, if I fast forward or rewind during a video it buffers and freezes and I end up having to exit the app and restart. I have also had an extremely annoying problem where it won't let me lock my iPhone with a video playing. Now I cannot go jogging and listen to music with earphones because it won't let me play it in the background on the lock screen! It used to let me do this and I don't know what happened. The constant freezing and black screen has only been happening in the past week. Everything is up to date and this could be a result of a recent software or app update, I don't know. This problem NEEDS to be fixed!!! I cannot even watch videos anymore.
Almost Broke My Phone
by Nice Going YouTube on 2016/01/06 06:01
He's how it went ok, I was just searching threw my subscription box and I clicked on a video. It sounds ok right? Nothing wrong at all. Until it took a bit to load and the video popped up and I could only see half of the screen on my phone so I could barely see what I was watching. Then the rest of the screen was completely black. It was very laggy and glitchy and it didn't let me back out of the video or press the home button. Then I tried restarting my phone and that didn't work. So it turned off but it would let me turn my phone back on, nothing was working and my phone was completely off and wouldn't turn on. At this point I didn't know what to do. Just a reminder it's 2:00 in the morning and I'm not going no where. So I tried waiting until my phone died so I can charge it and maybe it will turn back on but no. It ain't happening. So I waited around 15 mins and had to hold the home button and the power button for 15 secs and then it restarted my phone. Now I am happy that I can finally look at my beautiful phone and not a black screen. Surprised you've read this far, but thanks for reading. I just wanted to put this out there.
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.
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.
Terrible...
by Anthony221121 on 2015/08/17 03:49
This app is terrible. It's slow, it crashes, there's no multitasking, weird spot for the play/pause button since new update, no annotations, you can't choose quality on cellular networks, even over LTE which is the same speed as my WI-FI network, and during every video I watch the pixelation happens, ON A 80 MBPS WIFI NETWORK SPEED! Also on the menus it randomly sorts your subscribers so it is hard to find who you are looking for if you have a lot. Also, I really hate the positioning of the forward and back buttons when watching a playlist. I always tap them on accident and it's very annoying. Oh yeah and one last thing, they took out the scroll to top feature so If you were scrolling down to view the comments and want to look back at the description, you have to manually scroll all the way up. This needs a MAJOR update. Just terrible... Why google... Why... EDIT: Hey they released an update with more bugs! Now when you are in the middle of watching a video, the video randomly goes to the beginning and the audio continues. The only way to fix it is to completely close the video and open it again. Great. Thanks for providing more bugs Google.
...really, Google?!
by RagingBattles on 2015/10/13 04:08
"Why?" Is my only question. The app was great before. I could be watching a video while scrolling through my subbed channels and look at my history and channel without having to exit an entire video. Who do you think you're impressing? Because whoever it is, you've failed them. The colors are blinding, there's TONS of unneeded space and the overall design is lazy. I could've come up with a better one. The dropdown menu was great, as stated above, and the interface was much more user friendly. I cringe every time I see an update and hope you fix the problems. But no. "Bug fixes" and "full iOS 9 compatibility" is all I get. Don't even get me started on the crashing! I feel like you haven't been to the review section in a while, because your current rating is 1 and a half stars. You went to one of the best apps on the market to one of the worst and I doubt you even care. This has been going on for far too long and you need to listen to us. Change the app back. Make it good again. I'm tired of uninstalling and reinstalling to get the old version back and I'm sure everyone else is, too. So just do everyone a favor and CHANGE IT BACK.
Can see more potential
by Southern Fox on 2012/09/20 15:47
I would like if this had a history function so if I had to cut a video or two short, then I could go back and watch it. If it does, then it's really out of sight. Also, if it had the ability to view the youtuber's inbox. I'm getting too many spam videos and also respond to messages people send me or comment on their comment. And maybe, the ability to upload videos from the phone. Although better (using the term loosely) than the old built-in app, it needs a few more tweaking. But overall positive aspects is: That I can see ALL the people I'm subscribed to, and not just the hand full that the built-in app gave me (that's big to me). The pull down to update the video feed is needed, I hated having to go back and forth between videos or subscriptions to see new things. It's fairly quick to load up the people's video pages. I'm only having small problems so far, but I'm glad I downloaded this app. Because the iOS 6 update removed the old built-in app for me.
PLEASE FIX BLURRED VIDEO QUALITY
by Alpha 5000 on 2014/01/23 15:17
I for one love this app but it's frustrating and very annoying to see video quality degrade like this does. On my iPhone 4S it can go from super clear to where it's useless to even watch a video the way it blurs out which makes NO scenes to me to degrade a video quality to where it renders it useless. I always have to go to safari watch it there instead but much rather watch from the app while it's working right and ultra clear. I've downloaded update after update hoping it's an update to the my particular problem but always for some reason gets ignored. I assume this isn't an isolated issue? Please fix with next update. I can handle a little quality degradation but not when it's so blurry it hurts my eyes to even watch a video and can't make out anything on the video which all it's good for is listening to the sound which btw also goes down in quality but anyway please fix this and I'll give it 10 stars if I had that option but 5 for sure. Thanks
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!
Good app TERRIBLE update
by Itunesisthisnicknamegoodenough on 2016/05/11 12:11
I like the app but the new update has ruined many things. In my subscriptions tab all the videos say I have watched them even though I have not clicked on many of the videos. Videos freeze at a certain frame and the audio continues on. Then if I try rewinding the video to fix this the video skips to a random point much later in the video (ex: I was watching a video that froze around two minutes in the video. I tried rewinding to about 1:30. The video then skipped to around four minutes into the video and refused to rewind or fast forward to any other point until I closed the video). These didn't happen before I updated the app. Also autotube is a good thing if I choose to watch a playlist. I'm not watching a playlist. I am clicking on singular videos. It is good you can turn this feature off, but the arrows remain. It is easy to accidentally press these buttons and skip the video I actually chose to watch. This is extremely enraging. If you refuse to completely get rid of this feature at least make it optional in settings to remove it. Based on similar reviews I've read many people would like this option.
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!
