YouTube phone app updated

Video sharing phenomenon YouTube has been available in app form for some time on various smartphone platforms, but now an update is available to bring a few new features to the table.

YouTube 2.4 has been streamlined to make sure that it starts up far more rapidly than before and this efficiency has bled into playback, which should be smoother and swifter as well.

The search function now provides common terms without the user having to fill in the entire word, which is something that has become a significant feature of the main YouTube site.

For those with YouTube accounts, the addition of account access via the mobile app will be a bonus. This will let users manage favourite videos on their mobiles and subsequently have the same favourites available on your PC or laptop.

Both Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 have had YouTube 2.4 modified for compatibility and you can download it directly to your phone from the mobile phone version of the YouTube website.
