Good but I Can't Send Comments
I like everything about this app, from the design and interface to the video streaming speed. It is excellent. However, I cannot post comments on my 1st Gen. Surface Pro. I can switch to browser mode if I'm really inspired, but it's inconvenient and a stain on the excellence. I can't be certain how many people are having this problem, if any, but I do wish it was fixed.More
COMMENT SYSTEM BROKEN. POOR DEV SUPPORT
Comment system is broken. I've contacted developer but have yet to hear back. Constantly displays failed to add comment error message. Microsoft store's return policy is TERRIBLE. So I have to call a # just to return my purchase?! Are you kidding me?! I've emailed this developer TWICE and still have received no response. ITS BEEN 3 DAYS. Why is the comment system broken?! Videos and everything load fine but comment system is completely broken. If you going to take my money at least respond to my emails about a serious app error.More
we need what to watch option
as we know on you tube there is WHAT TO WATCH tab please work on it its good option for me and for other I think bcoz its easy to get recommended video thanks for this app and its very useful to useMore
Personally, I think the official YouTube app (if one ever emerges) should ask these guys how they made everything and just skip the basic design portion. The layout is very good, plus the download feature is excellent as always. There are minor improvements that could be made, just small things such as search suggestions when looking for a specific video title amongst a few other things to name just one. Other than those features (which is where the official YouTube people would come in) this is a fantastic YouTube app, and I have enjoyed using it ever since I bought Windows 8 when it came out.More
Best YT App Hands Down
The only app that lets you login to your account, download vids, change the vid quality, add to your own playlists and favorites, and doesn't randomly crash or not play videos. First app I've ever paid for--and worth itMore
Pretty cool w/ minor disadvantages
All it needs is to have annotations in the videos and a way to go to a youtuber's channel easier. Like in the very left where you have categories, you should have the option to put your subscriptions in there and when you click on it, you'll have different sections like uploads, playlist, that sort of thing. Because as it is right now, it makes it difficult to go to someone's channel just to watch a playlist.More
One of my favorite Windows 8 and Windows RT apps
I started using this on my Surface, but then found it's a million times better than the YouTube web site even on my desktop. Great app! Suggestions: Would like to see this app make better use of very large (low DPI, high resolution like my 2560x1600 30") screens by automatically showing the description and/or comments, allowing for a wider video view and moving the other videos further to the right. Also show commenter avatars.More
Everyone should have this
I love it. I just absolutely love it. It just gives me everything I want. I may sound like a spam robot but I'm not. Everything I do in Youtube is check what I'm subscribed to, and from time to time check the popular section. Big pros(for me): I can skip to next videos in my subscribed videos, UI, I can watch the like/dislike bar in the thumbnail and I can watch my videos as in a playlist. The only thing that I will change is the time it takes the Pause button to disappear, just one less secondMore
