With Apple just about to launch iOS6, Google decided to go ahead and makes its native YouTube app for iPhone (and iPod Touch) available now as a free download from the iOS App Store. Unfortunately, the native app for iPad is not yet included in this release. So, iPad owners will have to sit down, relax and wait for the app to become available, hopefully soon. According to the YouTube Blog, the iPad app will be available in the coming months.

In the meantime, here are the features of the YouTube iPhone/iPod Touch app worth checking out as you download and install the app;

  • Tens of thousands more videos – watch official music videos like Taylor’s latest hit
  • New YouTube channel guide – swipe your fingers from the left edge of the screen to reveal a guide with your subscribed channels
  • Find awesome videos faster –  get to videos like “Gangnam Style” faster with new search tools that give suggestions while you type, and let you sort through videos or channels. Flip through related videos, comments and more info, all while watching a video.
  • More ways to share with the people you love – share that incredible video you found on YouTube on Google+, Facebook or text message in the app, as well as from Twitter and email.

Via [YouTube Blog] and [iOS App Store]
