YouTube ipad app

The YouTube app for iPad (and iPhone) was updated yesterday, to Version 1.3. One of the headline new features in the update is access to live streams – via a shiny new ‘Live’ link in the sidebar.

You can also now queue up videos for playing on TV.

Here’s the full change list for this latest update:

* Quick access to new uploads from subscriptions via “My Subscriptions” feed on the Guide
* Access to Live streams
* Queue up videos to play on TV
* One Channel branding for video creator channels
* Stability and performance improvements

The YouTube iOS app has really come back strong after being removed by Apple as a built-in app in iOS 6 last year.

  1. The updarde works with the iPad but not with the mini or iPhone 5. Interestingly, after re-loading on the iPhone I see the Live selection but after signing in it disappears. Suspect this bug will be addressed in the future.
