Here’s a bit of shocking news: Google has released a new YouTube app today for the iPhone, but somehow it slipped their mind to do an iPad version.
A similar thing happened with their Google+ app for iOS – it took over a year to see an iPad version.
The release of the YouTube iPhone app is thought to be in response to the disappearance of the built-in YouTube app in the latest iOS 6 betas, and to be part of the ever so entertaining tit for tat battles between Apple and Google.
As I said about the Google+ app, the lack of an iPad version of this new YouTube app seems more Google’s loss than Apple’s. For my money, the YouTube app has never been much good anyway and I far prefer using a number of good 3rd party video apps, like Vodio and Frequency and Squrl.
Here’s an App Store link for YouTube for iPhone – just in case you want to see how goofy it looks on your iPad.
