Editors' Review

YouTube for Mobile is a simple, fairly fast, and well-designed application for a variety of Windows Mobile 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. YouTube's community aspect and saving favorites are missing from the mobile version. Here's another missed opportunity: search suggestions to keep mobile watchers from invariably awkward typing (and typos.) However, it's good enough as it is that any YouTube fan will find Google's mobile application an easy way to get a video fix.
