Updating your iPhone or your iPad to the latest iOS can be a bit of an ordeal at times and if you are new to the platform then you will realize that it is not always pretty smooth sailing. That has absolutely nothing to do with the operating system of course, as Apple delivers pretty well each time. The problem is largely with apps and in the recent past, that has been mostly centered around the ones dished out by Google.
There was a time when both Google and Apple got along absolutely fine, but those were the days before the advent of Android platform. Since then, from Google Maps to YouTube, the apps that we took for granted on the iPhone and the iPad slowly started disappearing. And with each iOS update, the one only saw things become a bit more difficult for those who used these apps extensively on Apple gadgets. While the latest upgrade to iOS 6 saw the disappearance of the YouTube app on both the iPhone and the iPad, Google launched a free YouTube app for iPhone and iPod Touch users very soon.
It has been a couple of months now and just ahead of the holiday season Google has unveiled the YouTube app that has been maximized for iPad and iPhone 5. The news is particularly sweet for the new iPad users as they saw the disappearance of YouTube from their tab after the latest OS upgrade. The new app is sure to top the charts once again in the App Store and with more than 25 percent of YouTube users watching videos ‘on the go’, the launch of the app sure makes plenty of sense.
With features like enhanced AirPlay support, videos that start faster and play more smoothly, and improved accessibility, it is just in time for some festive fun as you plan your trip around the Christmas and New Year time.
