When you downloaded the new ios6 software, you might have noticed that the youtube app that used to come with the ipad disappeared. Poof! Right into thin air.

Watch the world’s videos and keep up with your favorite YouTube channels with the official YouTube app for iOS. Sign in to access your subscriptions, playlists, uploads and more.

✓ Enjoy YouTube’s vast video catalog
✓ Find videos and channels more easily with voice search and query autocomplete
✓ Subscribe to channels and instantly access your subscriptions with the channel guide UI
✓ Read comments, browse related videos, enable subtitles and more – all while watching

I do like Jasmine’s interface better, but I am a sucker for nice, clean white space. It is easy to use.
