YouTube Pushes Ad Supported iOS App

Google has just released a new version of its YouTube video app for iPhones today.

This marks the first time that the YouTube app will feature advertising. On the other hand, the app will no longer come pre-loaded on new iPhones as part of iOS 6.

Starting today, you can download the official YouTube app for iPhone and iPod touch from the App Store, bringing you more of the videos you love and more ways to share them with the people you care about.

The new YouTube app is available for download now at Apple’s App Store.

“There’s even more to explore with the new YouTube app for iPhone and iPod touch, available for download from the App Store today,” Said Andrey Doronichev, head of YouTube mobile. “We’re working on an optimized version of the YouTube app for iPad in the coming months, and stay tuned for more details.

“You’ve already shown us you love YouTube on mobile—to the tune of 1 billion mobile views a day—so we can’t wait to see what you think about this new experience,” the post concluded.
