HTC YouTube App Updated!

One of the cooler apps that HTC owners can enjoy is the "Higher Quality" YouTube app.  Besides getting higher quality videos when they are available (i.e. the source is high resolution), you also get the integrated look of WP7 as it employs the Metro UI.

One of the biggest compliant I have is that you cannot link it to you YouTube account.  With the new update, this is no longer a problem. 

Since there is no "change log", here are what I have noticed that's new with this HTC YouTube App (apologies to the Samsung and LG lot) in my brief time of playing with it.

  • Ability to sign on (and have it remember your sign on information) to your YouTube account
  • view your uploads and your favourites (via the "My Account" item - weird)
  • Integration with Zune Video/Music hub.
It's a little bit buggy.  And you cannot remove your videos via this app.  Hopefully HTC will add more features in the future.

Hit up the HTC Hub and grab this YouTube app (don't search for YouTube in the marketplace) if you haven't done so already.
