CNET Editors' review

YouTube for Mobile is a simple, fairly fast, and well-designed application for a variety of Windows Mobile and Symbian phones that support landscape and portrait views. You'll search for videos through the search bar at the top of the screen, or through Top Rated, Most Viewed, or Most Recent categories. The results are displayed in a horizontal ticker, where you'll view a thumbnail image from each video and read the blurb and ratings below. In the Menu options, you'll find a shortcut key to return to the Home page, a shortcut to search for videos related to your current pick, and tips tucked away in a help menu.

YouTube videos loaded quickly in our tests and played in landscape mode. You can tap to call up the Back button and controls to pause, skip, and, adjust the volume; otherwise the video will play full screen. Note that playback quality will vary by device and your connection strength. YouTube's videos will chew through data, so having a monthly data subscription is strongly recommended before downloading the application. So long as that applies to you, any YouTube fan with find YouTube's mobile application an easy way to get a quick video fix--although the community aspect and saving favorites are missing from the mobile version.

    "useless for a non-junkie"

    July 29, 2009  |   By df_fb

    Version: YouTube for Mobile (Symbian) 2.2

    Pros

    nice UI, good streaming quality

    Cons

    no access to the youtube account, this means no favorites, no subscription channels

    Summary

    If you a youtube junkie and don't mind going through thousands videos to find something worth watching then this product is for you.

    But if you value you time and you data account, as well as do not share "top" lists taste (meaning you're older that 12) it is pretty much useless.

    IMO this product Product Management made a very bad judgement with current set of features.

    "Wow..Very Cool..!"

    May 31, 2009  |   By ragzi

    Version: YouTube for Mobile (Symbian) 2.2

    Pros

    Does what it says.! :-)

    Cons

    None that I can think of at present..! :-|

    Summary

    I use a nokia E71. I really wanted to watch youtube videos on my E71 but I couldn't. Yesterday, i found out from the e71 fanatics website that you could also download a separate youtube application from the youtube website. I did, and now I can watch you tube videos playing at a decent pace. When you start a video it is on a rare occasion that it stops playing in between. Therefore I give this application a 4 on 5. "Nice to see that companies like google are recognizing the importance of Symbian applications" is what I saw on the e71 fanatics website. True..Very True.. :-)
