The iPhone You Tube Application lets you browse and view videos at the popular video sharing site YouTube.com. You can do this several ways: by using the Featured and Most Viewed lists, searching or viewing your video bookmarks or history. You can select from these options at the bottom of the screen. Press More to see other options, such as the Most Recently uploaded video, Top Rated videos. and your viewing history.
The Featured list shows picks from the You Tube editors. You can scroll up and down the list, and click on a video to view it.
The Most Viewed list is similar, except that you can choose to see Today’s top videos, This Week’s top videos, of the All-time top videos.
The other screens show a similar list of videos. When viewing a video, you can tap the screen to see a timeline and some playback controls. These controls also have a bookmark button on the left and an email button on the right. Just tap the bookmark button to add the video to your bookmarks. The email button will open up the email application and allow you to send an email with a link to the video.
After you have bookmarked a video, you can go to the Bookmarks screen to see them. There, you can delete videos with the Edit button and view information about them by clicking on the blue arrow button to the right. Clicking on any other part of the listing will play the video.
The video information screen shows the number of views, rating, description, date, category and tags. You also get a Share button that opens up the Mail application. If you are looking at the information screen for a video that you haven’t bookmarked yet, you also get a Bookmark button.
You also get the information screen when a video ends, or if you press the Done button while a video is playing. At the bottom of the information screen you will get a list of related videos, although this might take some time to load.
You can use the Search screen to search for videos by keyword.
