We know now that with iOS 6 to be released on September 19th, there will no longer be a native YouTube icon on your device. There is no need as Google has created its own YouTube app which does a much better job than the old native app for many reasons. Sharing to social networks will be possible, and you'll be able to voice search your preferred videos. Just sign in as usual to access your information, lists and favorites. Some of the features included in Google's YouTube music and video app are:

- Enjoy YouTube’s vast video catalog, including official music videos
- Find videos and channels more easily with voice search and query autocomplete
- Subscribe to channels and instantly access your subscriptions with the channel guide UI
- Read comments, browse related videos, enable subtitles and more - all while watching
- Easy video sharing to Google+, E-mail, Facebook and Twitter

On opening the app, you will see a list of recommended videos (filling the screen nicely) with 2 per page which continues to scroll down. Search for your videos using the Search button on the top of the display. This will then produce the mic where you will speak your search terms. This is so much more preferable to typing which can be a drag and slower. The interface is much like Facebook where the main screen rolls to the right, away from the sidebar. In the sidebar, adjust your Settings, Add Channels, and enjoy the offerings of a host of categories From YouTube. This makes the YouTube videos nicely organized so you can readily find new and exciting clips to enjoy. Definitely, I am enjoying this new and polished Google YouTube app quite a bit more than the old, native iPhone app.
COOL CONCLUSION: Enjoy discovering and watching your old favorites plus new videos in all categories and genres on Google's new and improved YouTube app which makes sharing, searching and viewing a pleasure.
