Google has released a full-fledged YouTube app for iOS 6 nearly a month after Apple pulled out the app from its mobile operating system.
The online video streaming app was somewhat removed quickly from iOS 6 beta 4 version during its release early last month.
Apple said the app’s license term had run out, but added that YouTube could still be visited thru the iOS 6 native web browser, Safari.
“Our license to include the YouTube app in IOS has ended, customers can use YouTube in the Safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the App Store,” said an Apple representative.
After the removal of its app, Google just said it was working with Apple to offer the best possible YouTube experience for iOS users.
One month later, the search giant has now added a new version of the app on Apple’s marketplace, the iTunes App Store.
“For all you diehard YouTube fans out there who can’t get enough YouTube on your mobile, we’ve got some great news: 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,” says YouTube on its official blog.
“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.”
