Clicking on websites provided by Youtubers!  Sureno13awsome  2 star

😤 So........ some Youtubers provide websites to click on and when you click on them, the screen goes pure white. But you still hear there video playing in the background and there’s no way to click back or exit the white screen... the only way to get out is to close the app and get back on... 😤😡 Fix this crap.

DESPERATELY needs bug fixes  Kimmyrump  4 star

The YouTube App has become intolerabley glitchy. And needs bug fixes


Too many bugs  Monkeyviper12  2 star

I try to hit play and YouTube freezes for like a whole minute and also freezes up my phone. I have a iPhone 7 and nothing else freezes my phone. Fix this


Bad update  PongzeLor  1 star

Crashed for the first time and now locked touchscreen.

Oh what

Good app love it but there’s issues with these updates  Oh what  1 star

It gets stuck in full screen and I have to restart the app, also often the comment section and whole description, channel name, and rating section disappears when you leave full screen, all that’s left is the next recommended videos. This app deserves more than one star but I just would like these bugs fixed. Also what’s with the demonitsation stuff guys c’mon get yo life together


Weird commenting bug  Difmb  4 star

When you try to comment on a video, the screen freezes up but the sound still plays. The only way to prevent this was to exit and re enter(which is a hassle) or waiting a long time for the video to reload.

Geo Caterpillar

Great But Most Recent Update Annoying  Geo Caterpillar  4 star

I love the YouTube app a lot, but the most recent update has changed the it slightly, and on my iPod touch, the thumbnails of the videos are bigger and you can see less of the title and the channel name which is kinda annoying. Anyways YouTube has always been good and I haven’t experienced any glitches very often.

One glitch  Lucas O'Connell  5 star

When I go into landscape mode, the escape button disappears. Don’t now if it’s just my phone but if it is could you please fix that. Otherwise it was fantastic


Youtube Please Ad This  OkOkOkOkJJ  5 star

Can there be a way to clear your recommended page Or can their be a way not to have a recommended page. Thank you for the best app ever 😆😆


Don’t send me to a browser I don’t use  kiwiholden  1 star

The app keeps sending me to safari then safari sends me back to the app or just fails to do anything because it’s not setup. Email/3rd part app sends me to YouTube app then YouTube app (the place I want to be) sends me to safari then dead end you lose there’s nothing here try again I don’t use safari so why isn’t their an option in settings to never be sent away from the app. I only want to use the app no browsers


What is up with the quality settings??  Jaco_01  1 star

I remember when I used to click the quality settings on a video and set it to a higher definition it used to load straight away but now when you click it nothing changes/happens. When you go back into the quality menu it’s always set to the original quality it was on before and then eventually it switches to the one that I actually want. I understand that this may be an attempt at trying to make the transition more smooth but i’m certainly not a fan at all and like my videos to load the selected quality straight away. I would like this fixed and made the way it used to be.

Stop Censoring Non-Far left political content  Andynsuzm  2 star

You are actively censoring and hiding libertarian, classically liberal, conservative, and other content. You “explain” that it is violent or too sexual. That is insane. Prager University and many others aren’t violent or sexual, they just disagree with your extremist politics. Stop censoring. Otherwise, love the app and the platform


Bugs  SwagThing  4 star

Hey YouTube I love watching the videos but every time I watch a video it pauses by itself and loads forever! Although it sometimes works when you tap the screen to go back of forth but that’s it! If you get this please try and fix it because it is really annoying for me and other people. Thanks👍💪🏻

Slight problem  Jay Playa  3 star

App is great but I got one issue: Whenever I’m in the middle of a video, it freezes but the audio is playing in the background and I’m not able to exit out the app. I have to wait for 10+ seconds for it to get back to normal. Please fix this thanks!

Performance Problems with iOS 11  KyleH9  3 star

It takes the iMessage app a long time to load recently played videos. And YouTube should switch to the Native iOS Share Sheet.

Coca Cola,Pepsi and other companies Left You advertising for News on Las Vegas shooting. PewDiePie cussing is "*supposedly*" WORSE than a tragedy in Vegas. Literally there AD popping up every 5 min. Casey Neistat in Preview Pic for App. You Demonetize HiM 4 Nothing. Don't get ticked off at Creators for your AD Loss. Making it worse for New|Rookies in the YouTube System. Can't monetize creators but advertise them in ur 'SpotLight'. Overall; Don't Expect to get Fame|Money from this Website|App (that was 2005-2015) after the HēLł (Bible) Year (2016) Sub-boxes not getting subscription (Bell is more of a subscription and subscribing is JUST-4-SHOW) Content Creators going for Vimeo|Vid.Me. YOUTUBE is a BiG|HuGe App of endless entertainment (don't go to Trending. YouTube puts random irrelevant content in there.) The ONLY thing to take it down is a Bad Rated company buying it•
