Viewer reviews from iTunes

Good (4/5)

Would be cool if you could lock the screen and the vid still plays! - Tortugamane321

Search and Settings (5/5)

So I love the app. Usually no issues but since the last update, whenever I look up a video, the search icon and settings icon go up where the WiFi indicator and battery level indicator are. They are non touch sensitive so it stops working. Once I close the app and stop running it, it works fine but it’s a bit of a hassle. I don’t know if it’s because I’m using an iPhone X and it’s just a phone issue but it’s quite a problem. Apart from that, there are no real issues that need to be resolved. - Chris Abernathy

Bugs in iPhone X full screen,cant search and cant go back .please fix (1/5)

Bugs in iPhone X full screen,cant search and cant go back .please fix - nzrub

bug (5/5)

need to fix the ad bug where the ad doesn’t load - You're friendly Spider-Man

Comment Section Not Working (4/5)

Every time I comment on a video and then I log into another youtube account, my comment from my other account is not there. It’s extremely frustrating. No matter where I look or how far I scroll, it’s not there! please fix this! I want to comment on my favorite youtuber’s videos and tell them I enjoy their videos but I can’t! - Abbotton

Search problems (1/5)

The latest update obscured the the search bar in an iPhone X. This doesn’t happen right away. Launching the app, the search bar is fine. After watching a video or two, you have to close and relaunch the app because the search bar at the top is not clickable. - sjpro

Youtube is good but ads are trash (1/5)

Too many ridculous ads no one wants to see, and the fact i cant listen to youtube videos while leaving the app is stupid. why cant we go back in time to old youtube? this is cancer - Ps3master99

iPhone X search bar issue (4/5)

Hello, I tried to go to the app support but couldn’t find the option that links to my issue. So here it is, I own an iPhone X and the search bar on YouTube after a while goes up and is hidden by the middle breaker where the camera is on the iPhone X and can’t be pressed, the only way to solve it is to force close the app, and reopen in, I hope you can fix this issue. - MajedKewais

It pauses my face when I go live (1/5)

Everytime - Bih hihhhh

Youtube is amazing. (5/5)

Youtube is amazing - Artuhrrilley

Garbage (1/5)

Search bar is now overlayed at the very top with the status bar making it impossible to actually hit the search icon without going back to the home screen. Is there no quality control when releasing “updates”? It would take any person about 5 minutes of usage to find this. - Antonove

Issues on iPhone X (1/5)

Have been having issues recently where I tilt the phone upright but it even though the screen adjusts the bar used to get home stays on the side so I have to restart my phone to get out of YouTube. Please fix as soon as possible it happens at least once a day. - md3436

Update 13.14 killed the UI on iPhone X (2/5)

Woohoo, now I can't use YT on my $999 smartphone cause you glitched the UI in searching, subscriptions, and accessing account info. The entire top section of the app isn't scaled correctly (which is what's causing the issues). Please fix. - _____llama_

New app (2/5)

Old yet app had connect to device were is the one for this version - no small screens

Incessant Advertising Ruins YouTube Experience (1/5)

Advertisement after advertisement with each and every song ruins the playlist listening experience. Google or Alphabet or whatever “it” wants to be called these days has lost my respect. - clp2u

Terrible updates (1/5)

This latest update they’ve did is horrible. I can’t search up videos anymore - Djwhat5

Recent update issue (1/5)

Losing the search bar at the top when switching between tabs on iPhone X. - TheLastAfro

Shorter adds (3/5)

Shorter adds for mobile .... - XXSILENTDEAD

Why (4/5)

I keep getting a sega America add and it bugs me out of an episode - NICEASRICE06

YouTube must (4/5)

YouTube need to let us play music even when aren’t on the app, otherwise the app is amazing, just too much ads - yasssggg

Needs to be fixed (2/5)

All in all the app is good, however for some reason when I play a video. It would play for a while then it would stop and won’t not aloud me to play the video. I keep having to exit out the app. Then once I open it aging the video would play for a while then stop playing. - Fhjdhfj

Would be great if it actually played stuff consistently. (2/5)

It's constantly not loading the ad before videos so I have to choose a different video and playlists with any videos that have ads are useless. Fix this, it's been a problem for months now. - Cooper Pie

Full screen landscape gets stuck (1/5)

When rotating back to portrait the video often remains in landscape position making it a pain to navigate the app. This often happens when watching in landscape for a prolonged period of time with a YouTube red subscription with the app in the background. Paying 10$ a month that for this buggy crap. - CyberData4

YouTube ratieng (5/5)

Oh my gosh I 100% love YouTube! It’s the best app/website ever!!!!!! - Mr.Austino

Seems to keep getting worse. (3/5)

Subscribe to a channel and ring the bell if you maybe want to know about a new video. There’s a good chance you won’t find out anyway because YouTube is run by robots with no idea what they’re doing. If you’re on an iPhone X, get ready for overlapping UI elements. I regularly have to force close the app just to be able to use it. The app can’t seem to decide if it wants to use the iPhone media controls or not. - BBQSox

Comments section doesn’t work well with iPhone X (3/5)

The app works well, occasionally the search bar will glitch into the top section where the notch is, but the comments section is the main problem: Unless someone makes a comment, I can’t scroll down to the part where it says “add a comment”, therefore I can’t add comments. I suggest you fix this problem soon - NEM309

I love it but (5/5)

Their is a glitch where the search box gets compacted with the time on iPhone X - Techno Dude!!!!!

I think YouTube is the best (5/5)

I use this app for long periods of time but once I get on it again it reloads the page :/ - doldole

It’s amazing! (5/5)

It sooooooo gud - Mickey Miata

Search bar is hidden away (1/5)

Fix the search bar. I can’t search anything since it’s hidden up there with the time and everything else after you click on a video. - Ortiz83

doesn’t work (1/5)

doesn’t work on my iphone at last three days. is not the cell data, is not wifi, just doesn’t work!!!!💔💔💔💔 - gmoyad

update needs patched (4/5)

i am on the iphone x, i use youtube very often, i love youtube but i just wanted to let you guys know the new update needs patched. after i search the first video i can’t hit the search button at the top or any of the navigation or filter buttons at the top of the screen due to it overlapping with everything at the top of my screen such as my battery percentage, time, wifi connection “gauge” etc. unfortunately the only way i can search something else is by killing the app and reopening it, and doing another search from the homepage. i’m still using it but i’ve been having to stick to more suggested videos than usual because i’m multitasking and i can’t reopen it every few minutes. no hate, just a heads up on a small issue. hopefully you don’t take it the wrong way like Enzo Ferrari did to Ferruccio Lamborghini - princessz2000

What's up with the activity tab (1/5)

Why does it take you to some idiotic 'shared' thing? Is youtube desperately trying to make their app more impractical? How about making it so that the NOTIFICATIONS show up first? Common sense is hard for incompetent people. - ThereWillBeNoWorries

What is happening (1/5)

I try to use the app and it’s taking minutes for it to even attempt to load the adds right now. I honestly have no clue what’s wrong the app now, it worked fine before this last update - Tempchanja

Why can't I delete videos?! (4/5)

YouTube let me delete vids in mobile🤦🏻‍♂️ - Awesomekid867

Fix the bugs (3/5)

Youtube as a platform is the most used and the most popular and the best platform across social media. But I think there are some bugs specially on iOS and I think you should perhaps make an update to solve this problem asap. Thank for your efforts in making connections easier and making live more interesting and I think you should also work on ads on YouTube and I hope we could get the same freedom that was on youtube years ago because today it is locked up like the youtubers are living in a prison I mean a lot of them can’t express themselves,So please if you can solve these problems asap ,Not only me but a lot of people would be grateful. - themasterdon

My opinion (2/5)

This is great but much more time is used on this site, sometimes I feel that I’m addict on this - baejid

Problem on Iphone X (2/5)

The last update has made the app unusable on the IPhone X. The search button and other stuff appears next to the ‘notch’ and you can’t use any of those buttons because they don’g respond when pressed. So I effectively can’t search for a video from within the app. Please fix it. - VikTheWicked

New update confusing (1/5)

New update changed how new episodes were displayed. Now they are shown by show? This is stupid. Please change it back to displaying all newly recorded episodes and events from most recent on. I shouldn’t have to click through a show page. Also now they are forcing us to watch ad versions of DVR shows. Whereas before it was easy to find the live DVR version that we could fast forward commercials. - Justenb31

Bugs (2/5)

I love this app, but lately I’ve had CONSTANT bugs where I can’t search any thing of go back to the home screen. Pleeeeease fix the bugs. - Posh guy

Connect to TV (5/5)

@devs as a user, when I connect to my Xbox YouTube app with my iPhone YouTube app and I have a video open on my iPhone, I want a prompt asking if I want to play that video now, add to queue or ignore. Currently when I connect, I lose the video I just opened up and I see the current playlist. - Itotzke

Search bar issues on iPhone X (1/5)

Please fix! After update the search bar is nested in videos after going to landscape mode then back to portrait. Force closing the app fixes temporarily.. - helppp321

Mistakes at iPhone X (1/5)

We need to fix some mistakes for the sizes at iPhone X - Bajhanam


I really appreciate all that YOUTUBE has to offer. Education on all things that I need to learn as well as want to learn! Where was this when I needed you in college! - Divafashionista

Dark mode (5/5)

Yall should add a dark mode dont u know how many times ive been blinded by the white in du middle of the night ? - Tmgop

its a great app..but (2/5)

okay well i lov youtube but now today i recently tried to get on youtube and it will click out of it and go to my home screen - kekealldaii

Broken (1/5)

Why is the status bar and the top bar stacked together, making it impossible to hit the search icon. This is unacceptable. - hl2master

Constantly forgets where I was (3/5)

I mostly watch videos of 20-50 minutes throughout the day. This app used to remember where I hit reliably, even if I left the app for a day or more. For several months now it has forgotten my pause point most of the time, and even which video I was watching, even if I left the app for as little as half an hour. Now I have to spend 5-10 minutes each day re-finding videos I've watched half of, and then scrubbing until I find where I left off. Stop working on self-driving cars until you figure out a technology for reliably pausing a video, Google! This is the thing I actually need from you! Thanks! - CVASchmidt

Swearing (5/5)

To many swearing videos - Blissfulmom

Unusable (5/5)

New update has so many visual glitches it’s almost unusable. - Bencoop20
