Where you were once protected you now aren't. As a native app Google had to agree to Apple's terms, no ads and more privacy. Now each user has to agree to Google's term individually which means ads and less privacy.

A good amount of youtube videos are viewed on a mobile device and seeing as how there's no iTunes for Android I doubt they'd make a video app for it either.

It's Google. There's no privacy in the first place.

Seems like a good outcome for almost everyone.

 

Google get to sell scuzzy ads

Apple aren't associated with scuzzy ads

Users get to choose if they want to install an app that shows them scuzzy ads.

Users who don't give a carp about YouTube doesn't have to suffer it being on their device by default.

 

The only people who don't benefit are those who want a YouTube app with no ads.  But I don't have much sympathy for free-riders.

OK. Thanks for confirming that it was a stupid question you had asked in the first place.

I'm most likely in the minority, but once YouTube was taken out of iOS, I only watch their videos the the Apple TV app.  It's still ad free.  If the Apple TV app is ever done away with I'll just stop watching things on YouTube all together.  I have zero interest in watching ads.

AdBlock on the desktop blocks all YouTube ads, even the ones before videos, when combined with Click2Flash.

Kind of funny that this was posted the day before the PRISM scandal was leaked.

Changing the www. to nsfw. before a YouTube clip on the desktop means you don't have to log in to "verify your age" on age restricted clips

I logged out of everything Google and deleted all their programs on my MacBook months ago.
