CNET 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.

    "IT WORKS ON MY PDA (Fulitsu Siemens Pocket LOOX)"

    January 4, 2011  |   By crossbros

    Version: YouTube for Windows Mobile 2.2.6

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    The only complaint is that it is not made clear here that you need to go from the pda not your pc

    Summary

    Using the link is the mistake!
    The link is to 'm.youtube.com' the clue being the m. rather than www.
    This means you must go to the site direct from your pda there you can get the download direct to you apparatus and after a few seconds its up and running

    "Couldn't download it"

    February 25, 2010  |   By forward-vision

    Version: YouTube for Windows Mobile 2.2.6

    Pros

    Don't know, it wouldn't download

    Cons

    It wouldn't download. The "Download" link took me directly to YouTube.com rather than a download page.

    Summary

    NOTE TO WEBMASTERS FOR THIS SITE - THE DOWNLOAD LINK IS WRONG & SO THE APPLICATION CANNOT BE DOWNLOADED. PLEASE SORT IT OUT!!! :(

    "Good for Windows Mobile Users, HTC users, don't try !!"

    July 7, 2009  |   By MeanTee

    Version: YouTube for Windows Mobile 2.2.6

    Pros

    Better to have an App instead of browsing a mobile webpage.

    Cons

    Not as fast as expected

    Summary

    For people who have phones with inbuilt HTC YouTube players like the ones pre-installed on HTC Diamond or Touch Pro, don't switch to this.

    The HTC application is way too faster than this, better looking and has more options to offer such as "play HD videos only", which this application lacks. Considering the HD screen on these phones, SD YouTube videos would pixelate in fullscreen.

    Tried it, not at all satisfied.
    Better can be expected from Google, gear up guys !!!
