Viewer reviews from iTunes

It’s amazing! (4/5)

YouTube is the best place for me to relieve stress and many relieves me. But there are lots of clickbaiters. (which I don’t mind btw) Other than that, sometimes many screens just come at once and it just gets annoying a lot. Usually my phone likes to play games and press the wrong video I want to watch. Overall, this app is great! 👍👍 - Extractor_GamingYT

Please add the shuffle button again (5/5)

Please lol - Fisde



New bug discovered on IOS YouTube (3/5)

A new bug that has recently started appearing is when you leave your IOS device off and unattended for a few seconds or minutes, YouTube closes for no reason. This issue has happened many times but it never bothered me before - SavPlayzGames

Dark mode/Theater mode (4/5)

This would make the app 10 Times better for night time and just for the look of the UI. - Matthewvideos1



Fix this problem please!! (4/5)

I use the app all the time it’s really good, but recently it’s been lagging a lot for example the video that I’m watching with suddenly ‏Be really sped up or really slowed down and The audio‏ won’t be moving with the video and the video will go back (if that makes sense I don’t know how to explain it well) so it should be fixed. - Sara_st5

Good (5/5)

Good - almoog_14

Please Read (3/5)

I used to love YouTube, but the updates keep getting worse and worse. When I search for a channel, it only shows videos unless you filter it to channels only. There used to be a bar at the top, so you could easily switch. Another thing, is when I'm watching a video, the suggestion video thumbnails below just got bigger. The worst update of all is that I CAN'T LEAVE THE APP when I'm watching a video. If I do, it'll refresh when I come back and lose my progress. Please fix this, I think everyone would appreciate it. - animalover1156

Y YouTube. WHY (1/5)

For some reason YouTube SAYS its available but when I open it it does not work. I tapped open multiple times but it still won’t open. WTH - Punch_Master

Playing music (2/5)

need an update that will allow music to continue to play in the background when you exit out of the app. it is really annoying and wastes so much battery because you can’t turn off your screen. we aren’t all watching the videos all the time, just trying to enjoy some music! - beccccax4

I like it but there is a lot to work on (4/5)

I love YouTube and I watch videos on it every day but I’m a small youtube channel and I want to stream on my phone but I NEED MORE SUBSCRIBERS. I would like it if everyone could live stream on mobile. - XxgamingdragonxX

From lefties everywhere (3/5)

Why did you make it so that when you scroll on the left side of your watch later playlist, it rearranges the videos?? It's so annoying for us lefties! Please go back to the way it was before it's driving me up the wall - Lissi💗

Sound issue (1/5)

When I watch a video, it plays just fine then the sound makes people sound like chipmunks or really slowed down. What’s up with that? The voices sound super sped up or super slow like they’re talking in slow motion but the video is playing normally. It’s annoying and very strange - Nicole7075kj

Something is wrong with the speed (4/5)

So Today I was Gonna watch youtube..To watch youtube and then the video was normal later on the video the audio was so slow and deep so I Started the video all over and then it was going super fast.. - xx gamer boy

Change this please (4/5)

I have a new bug when I click on videos it is extremely sped up and I cant understand anything that is being said. Also I wish I would stop being recommend videos that I have already watched it gets really annoying to keep seeing the same videos on my homepage. - marnii727

YouTube (3/5)

One thing YouTube great but many youtubers are struggling. YouTube goes down people have the job there and the creators are trying to you know work hard?! - Jessiejoey2005

NO STARS! (1/5)

Screen freezes even more with the latest update. I would gladly give this app five stars except for the crashing! I reinstalled, didn’t help. Please fix! - Ramslo Quartet

Great, but the same issue for a long time (3/5)

I’ve been experiencing some issues with playing a video it skips 1-3 mins and it plays it with a slow motion voice without me touching anything. This happened to me 3 times so far and it annoys me so much. Please find a solution - Gbfhvgcb

NEEDS FIX NOW!!! (1/5)

FIX THE “ASK FOR NOTIFICATIONS” FOR YOUTUBE!!! Ever time I use youtube for a while after I install it, it eventually has this UNFIXABLE bug that REPEATEDLY ASKS FOR YOU TO ENABLE NOTIFICATIONS. I tried everything to fix this and there is no solution for this. please fix I beg you. - GreenPeace1912

Shuffle (1/5)

I like to listen to music on YouTube but they disabled the shuffle feature and it’s not the same. Please add that back - DoctorLegos

Audio not caught up with video itself (4/5)

So when I watch a video on YouTube it sometimes would have the audio randomly behind the video. I don’t know why mine does it. Just now the audio actually sped up and had a high pitched sound and the video was the same. It was a video of Shane Dawson recent video “ASKING PERMISSION TO MARRY HER SON”. I wanted to add it in there just in case. To fix it I would have to pass the video and then replay it or when the video jut started it would do that after the loading screen was finished. So I would start it from the beginning. I wanted to let you know for the issue I’m having. It’s not a big problem I can’t deal with I just wanted for who ever is reading this to be able to fix the problem so it won’t get worse. Thank you for YOUTUBE btw😇. - Kyla R.

Cannot play video after search, please fix! (1/5)

Why allow a search feature if you cannot play them once you’ve done a search?!?! I have an iPad air2. This is annoying. Please fix! - Frustrated FB user

Lots of problems (2/5)

Lots of things about this app don’t work right or at all. Obviously Google didn’t put much effort into the iOS version. Item cleared from a queue come back later. Items added to a queue are added to the top rather than the bottom (that’s how a STACK works, not a queue). Can’t reliably pause or fast forward. Navigation is illogical. It’s a mess. Two stars. - RJH 760

Can you add something (5/5)

Please add disable reply. - penguinREC

Newest version needs work (3/5)

I’ve never had a problem with the YouTube app until this latest version. Both my iPad Pro and iPhone X will experience lag in the sound quite often. What often happens is the video will start fine but you can tell about 5 seconds in or so the sound will revert back to the beginning. It can be very frustrating sometimes. Otherwise, the app is fine. - Anamosa41

Beware of YouTube. (1/5)

Yes, we all use it a lot. WAY TO MANY COMMERCIALS, plus they are limiting freedom of popular YouTube creators. - No dictation

Where is night mode? (1/5)

Good app, has seen better days. However there is one main problem. I watch YouTube mainly at night, and the red on white is really bright on the eyes. It would be nice if Google made an update where they added night mode that adjusts based on time (like in google maps). Also there are a lot of player bugs where it freezes on one point in a video and every video I click on the volume plays but it’s a still image where it froze. Also sometimes the audio keeps laying but there’s a still image and I can’t click off the video or even shut off my phone. - Steven mcvabsalier

Thieves (1/5)

Constantly stealing and freezing views from you tube video uploaders. What the Hell is your problem??? MORONS!!! - Hccucdhchcxyc

Dark mode (4/5)

There is no dark mode? - tudud

Has one big glitch (4/5)

I have an ipad Air2 and if I search for a video I can't click on it. Instead I have to search through he internet and then open in youtube. It's really inconvenient. Also, let's talk about ads for a second - I am not against people making a living, but since these ads are *supposed* to be based on what I might possibly actually be interested in I just wanna say "Yeah right!!" There should be some way for if I really REALLY despise Fifty Shades of crap to be able to turn it off. - Nova7o9

Annoying (3/5)

You changed the smaller video layout. Instead of a small box in the bottom right of your screen when you swiped down on the video, it is now an even smaller screen in the bottom left with a pause button and an x. I find this extremely annoying; the older layout when you could just swipe to get rid of the video was much better. - adcdefgicantspellsostickwithme

youtube red (2/5)

kicks you off when another user gets on from the same account. should be $4.99 for a basic for just one person to watch and $12.99 for mult. people to watch from the same account - blahhh blahh blah blah

App (1/5)

Fix your app - Noahb19

Not opening (3/5)

Hi, I just updated my app and now it won't even open. I watch YouTube videos every day and I'm upset that that it's not working. I have other apps and they all open fine. Please try to fix this issue. Thanks in advance, Dona - silvrlvr131

Fix it already! (1/5)

Without fail at least once a week I have to delete and re-download the app. Please fix it already. - Psmtz

Revert the latest update (1/5)

This update completely destroyed the buttons in the app. The options menu never comes. - kapa102345

Please bug fix (3/5)

I keep getting a bug where when I go into full screen it goes into the bottom left of the screen which sometimes leads to the full screen not being able to go away. Also sometimes the video will play high pitched sped up audio even though the playback speed is at normal. - The m4assive


YouTube for iOS is a grand slam in my not so humble (iOS) opinion. You see, I’ve been using iPhones and Apps for almost 11 years now. I bought my first iPhone the first day the first iPhone (or the iPhone 1) was released for sale in the US. I know this next bit might scare or even be too much to believe for some of you out there, but I must share the hardship we iOS pioneers endured 😆. Imagine a world where you own an iPhone - but there’s no App Store yet! I know it’s frightening, but yes, oh yes ... the stories we elders tell are true. So you can imagine having ability to watch YouTube anywhere & anytime or everywhere & all the time is a pretty huge thing! As long as Google (FYI just in case you’ve been on Mars; they own YouTube too) doesn’t bring back mandatory Google+ accounts and throw YouTubers into a state of panic, I’m loving the fact I have this App. By the way, for the best possible performance; I suggest you restart your device after every hour or so of watching. This is simply due to the amount of data your device is processing and I’ve found it to be helpful. And this also give your brain, eyes and ears a little break . And remember, they’ve been processing it all too. Highest Recommendation!! - America's App Advisor

Homepage algorithm (2/5)

The only videos I ever see on my homepage are ones I’ve already watched. Literally nothing else. Like I’ve seen them, why would I watch them again? - suggest new similar content so I’m not sitting bored in an endlessly looping echo chamber. I guess it’s not a criticism of the app itself, but rather a YouTube algorithm. Still, there’s so much new interesting content being added all the time - show me that please. - xXDarkdragon7Xx

YouTube used to be amazing (1/5)

Now YouTube is much too controlled by money and the user has extremely limited say in what they watch. It has become a system controlled by supposed “trending” videos which are actually just videos chosen by the company depending on what will make them the most money. I’m using other sites instead now. YouTube creativity is dying fast. - A&BThompson

What happened? Yuck (2/5)

I remember when you could watch a video without 5 commercials, there's one rolling as I scroll for what I want to watch there's Ad's being shoved down my throat with option to click before I choose my video then there's and AD before my video starts sometimes 5sec and skip sometimes 20sec suffer and watch. Then here's the kicker.... y'all ready there's commercials Ads during the video sometimes 7 or more depending on what your watching. What in the world is going on. I understand your excitement about have YoutubeTv so do us all a favor and keep the commercials for TV, because that were people go when the want commercials. It's disrespectful and disgusting. It's Greed! - Bk_stroll804

Total mess (1/5)

Honestly what the hell Google. Why does it take like 2 seconds for the video controls to come up when I tap the screen??!! Not to mention every single bug I encountered on this app since months ago are still here. And please give us the option to block ads that we don’t like. I constantly get ads for scary story apps and there’s nothing I can do to get rid of them. I can tweak as preferences but that doesn’t seem to block them. - alex91008

Video speeds up for no reason (1/5)

My video is sped up even thou it’s on normal on speed option i don’t know what’s going on - This app need a fix

Code loop thing appears to be fixed (3/5)

It is not devouring my battery! Good work Youtube team. - TradArcher

Audio issue (3/5)

Since the last update some videos sound like Mickey Mouse!?!?!? - Jedi$1138

Much better now (5/5)

Good job. - Mad me angry
