Accessing popular video-sharing site YouTube is a piece of cake if you’re using a desktop computer. All you have to do is fire up your web browser and go to YouTube.com – that’s all there is. To make accessing YouTube just as easy on Windows Mobile-powered devices (and Nokia S60 smartphones), the development team behind the video-sharing site rolled out the YouTube Mobile app for Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile phones back in March, 2009.

“Since then, the application was translated to 12 languages, installed on millions of devices around the world, and has been chosen as a Nokia Ovi Top App of 2009,” explained Product Manager, Andrey Doronichev.

The latest release of the YouTube Mobile app for Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile phones is version 2.4 – it was released last week. According to the YouTube team, the app is meant to be the fastest way to find and play a video hosted on YouTube on your smartphone. The focus has always been on making the app start fast, help you find a video in a speedy manner, and start playback in a blink.

Version 2.4 comes with several new features:
  • New Homescreen user interface – the UI has been optimized for larger screens.
  • Added support for “My Account” – from now on if you add a video as one of your favorites on your PC, it will show up in “Favorites” when you launch the YouTube Mobile app. From the app you can view your favorites, subscriptions and playlists just like on your desktop computer.
  • Query suggestions – the YouTube Mobile app throws suggestions your way when you type in stuff in the YouTube search box (just like you get while using YouTube on your desktop computer). This feature is especially useful for mobile users as it saves them from typing a long query – which can be a bother on devices where text input is difficult.

Additional information on the YouTube Mobile app for Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile phones is available on the YouTube Help Center.
