Youtube app now optimized for iPad and iPhone 5

Shortly after Google added the ability to setup multiple accounts to the official Gmail app, their standalone YouTube app for iOS was also updated with support for the iPad and iPhone 5. Now users can comfortably get their YouTube fix on the iPad or iPad mini and iPhone 5. About time too as it’s been almost 3 months since it was first released and users had to resort to other apps like Jasmine (a great app itself) or mobile Safari while browsing through videos on the iPad or latest iPhone. Other new features in the update include AirPlay support, adding and removing videos from your playlists, clickable links in video descriptions and improved accessibility with VoiceOver.

Watch all the Apple TV ads ever made

Did you know Will Ferrell was in an Apple TV ad?

Quick. How many Apple TV ads have ever been made? If you said 485, that’d be correct. Well, according to someone with way too much time on their hands anyway. Found under the Youtube channel EveryAppleAds (via The Next Web), you can now watch all the classics in one place. From the very first Apple TV ad (1977) to the recent iPad mini adverts, it’s (supposedly) all there. Yes, you can re-watch all the Mac vs. PC ads starring Justin Long and the ‘other guy’ (John Hodgman). Below are but a few of the ones I’ve enjoyed from a number of years ago. For the full playlist, head over to the Youtube page.

Jasmine is a great looking (and free) YouTube client for the iPhone and iPad

Jasmine youtube player on the iPad

Watching YouTube videos on your iDevice has just gotten a whole lot prettier thanks to the recently released Jasmine app. Brought to you by Jason Morrissey, the developer of Alien Blue (a client for Reddit that looks equally clean and well designed), Jasmine is a YouTube client that not only looks great, but is fully featured. It has a day/night theme, supports Playlists/Favourites/Subscriptions (login to your YouTube account), and you can also play audio from music videos in the background while you check your emails/iMessages.

Standalone YouTube app released for iPhone

A little over a month ago, Apple confirmed that YouTube would no longer be pre-installed in their new upcoming OS. “Our license to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended. Customers can use YouTube in the safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the app store”. And with just a day to go before the iPhone 5 running iOS 6 is unveiled, the standalone YouTube app for the iPhone has been released.

Steve Ballmer reviews the iPad

Redmon Pie pointed out the cute iPad review by Microsoft’s brash CEO himself, Steve Ballmer. Succinct as ever, he riddles the iPad with holes of its own making and adds the cleverest of quips. Look out for Microsoft’s big next best thing soon enough! YouTube, I love you.

The iPad – an oversized iPod Touch

If you build it, they will come. The birth of the iPad from Apple’s womb brought mixed results from the fanboy/girl community. While some find the iPad as merely an eBook reader on steroids, some find it a bloated iPod Touch that brings nothing new to the table.

Call it what you will, one can’t deny a chuckle from the rather cheesy name. In fact, the “magical” iPad has spawned several comedic parodies amongst popular YouTubers like jacksfilms.

Whether you hate it or can’t get enough of it, the iPad is most definitely going to change the AppStore as we know it, and be a part of our joke arsenal for years to come.

Gameloft’s Asphalt 5 Gameplay trailer

I’ll make no secret of the fact that the venerable arcade hit, Asphalt 4: Elite Racing ranks highly among my favourite iDevice racers. Its combination of good graphics, playable physics, and selection of racetracks and cars is still a well-ordered kind of good. Well, its successor, whose beautiful fps you see above should be hitting the same store this week or when Apple’s arbitrary publishing arm hits the coveted ‘yes’ button. Asphalt 5 preserves the same great arcade feel while upping the race and graphics engine to 11.

If you have an questions, you won’t get answers from me till about a week after its debut – till then I’ll be snowed under a great rubbery deluge of burning tyres!
