WHY?!?  Egyptianvampire  2 star


KKB Awesome

Why?!  KKB Awesome  1 star

I thought I’d get used to it, but now it’s really annoying. I don’t understand the need to have updated the video format when searching or doing other things off the video while keeping it open. The way it was in the bottom corner where you could swipe to stop it anytime was PERFECT. Now we have this unnecessary bar covering the bottom part of the screen with the title of the video and yada yada USELESS INFORMATION WE COULD EASILY CHECK IF WE EXPAND THE WINDOW... with an x in the corner to quit the video. Why is it so complicated now? Even the video is much smaller when in windowed mode! What is this?!?! I’m incredibly disappointed. The more I have to use this feature, the more I want to just use YouTube from my browser instead of the app. But that’s not all! How come with videos that aren’t in landscape format, they’re scaled up to cover 90% of the screen now? It’s a pain to scroll through comments and have the (let’s say portrait mode) video cropped off the top and the bottom when you scroll down? I’d rather have the black bars than this weird, annoying format. Youtube is a pain, at least for me, to use on mobile. Especially since I almost never have access to desktop! I’m outraged. At least give us an option in settings to switch back to the original format! This is atrocious. I’m not changing my review until some type of solution is formed.

Dec 2017 Update UI Change  pismodude  1 star

Not a fan. Hard to see anything in minimized videos now because they’ve been made much smaller. Also can’t swipe to close any more, you have to hit the tiny little “x” instead. Feels like a move backwards, could have probably lived without a pause button on the minimized videos if this was the price to pay.

Review  Butter Cream Crock Skin  3 star

Videos freeze and I don’t like how when the video is about to end all the recommended videos pop up, you can’t finish watching the rest of the video.

The app is not good if you have an iPhone X. Very very slow.


Age restriction  LALA1236  3 star

Hello YouTube you guy were great when you first started everyone who made content made money and made everyone happy or sad or mad but it’s ok but when you guys added the age restriction everyone was kinda ok with it but when you had the ad apocalypse we’re people can’t say bad words it was unfair I seen people lose their channel or had every single one of there uploads age restriction or people being stressed out about there channel like Super Mario Logan being stressed you don’t have to be like this parents can see what there child is doing or they can put age restriction mode for them. pls at the bottom of my hart stop putting age restriction because some people don’t have account but still stop putting age restrictions for YouTube it’s annoying and mean you guys have all these other YouTube apps stop being childish and wake up everyone swears. I hope you read this message YouTube or a reader thank you and have a wonderful day.


Please stop the preview while scrolling!  Aoithedreamer  3 star

With the new update you can see a preview of the videos with hilariously incorrect subtitles. However, I don’t want to see those so I went into the settings and turned them off. But every. Single. Time. I open the app the previews keep going! Please make it stop.

Too many ads/ latest update  Codhsgb  1 star

I know YouTube is going through an adpocalypse but literally every single video I watch I get an ad. Some are just 5 second ones but others are 30 second ones that you can’t skip. Look I know that means that I’m helping the creator or whatever but it is really inconvenient and honestly aggravating. I’m fine with ads every now and then but when it’s the same ads non stop... well you get my drift. Also when you slide your video down to the bottom of the screen (I’m sorry I don’t know what that means) the new design is... ugly and inconvenient. I understand what you guys were trying to do, but no just no.


Not a good change  karenakan  1 star

I hate the latest version. I like how it used to be, just simply swipe to the left to remove the video that is playing. Please change it back.

Minimised screen  Joy_lautner  1 star

Why did you change the minimised screen feature on mobile???? Now when you minimise the screen it's too small and you can't swipe to close it, you have to press the 'x' Why do you guys love making useless changes that just makes things more difficult. Why can't you improve features instead of wasting time ruining them. FIX IT PLEASE IT'S ANNOYINGGGGGGGGGGGGG

Buggier and more bloated than ever  ex0dus1985  1 star

The YouTube app has been getting more and more bloated and slow with every version. Even on the iPhone X the UI stutters and rotating the video glitches using up a corner of the screen. Simply scrolling the comments causes stutter which is ridiculous for what is the fastest phone on the market. Stop adding features and work on actually optimising your code!


Won’t automatically repeat  Bobosupgaming  1 star

I love this app and I even have YouTube red. I mainly use it to listen to music, but ever since the recent update whenever I go to one of my play list and listen to all the songs (there’s like 5) it won’t repeat them, I even put the repeat button on so it would continue but it wouldn’t work every time the song would end I would have to stop what I’m doing go into the app and tap on the next song. The songs I listen to are only about a 1:50 long so I’m constantly having to open my phone and rewind it.

Some movies I really want to watch but I can’t because it says morons took it off but there was nothing wrong with them. You just want money, not going to happen anymore.

Playback issue.  TRapter BOSS  3 star

Don’t get me wrong, YouTube is great, but I’m getting this issue where it’s stopping unexpectedly like every 15 seconds and then 5 seconds later it resumes.

It WAS good  Create Nickname 111122368  1 star

I used to LOVE YouTube but then they got an update and if you don’t want to flip your screen sideways the video takes up 3/4 of your screen and you can’t read comments at the same time your watching the video because you can’t see it. Please fix. I am no longer using it.

One thing that ruins YouTube..  Jack the brave  1 star

One thing... WTH IS WITH YOU PEOPLE. You’re just going to age restrict every video? YouTube: Oh look a channel is flagged because there was a baby under a blanket for 2 SECONDS! And look! A puppy sat down! Let’s flag it because we are flatheaded oafs! I’m sorry (not) because we “accidentally” don’t know how to use a computer! All we do is spam buttons to flag someone. That’s you right now! I understand you’re trying to make your website family-friendly, but basically you’re trying to end your job. So I hope you just learn what the difference of a compliment and sarcasm is or else you probably don’t know what flagged means. Have fun ruining your business! :)
