What's New in Version 10.38
The redesigned YouTube app makes it easier to find what you love. Now your recommended videos, favorite channels, and subscriptions can be accessed by tapping each icon or swiping your screen. You can also create fun videos on the fly with new in-app editing tools.
Unnecessary redesign and no back button
Update 10/15: Well, they took away the back button which makes it easier to go immediately back to the last video you just watched. As you can tell from an earlier review they have it there for a short time and then took it away again. Now to go to the most recent viewed video you have to close down the one you're watching click over to history and try to find it there. Also, this new design makes it harder and takes longer to do the things you used to do in the app's most recent iteration. Google screws up again.
Update 11/14: They finally gave me back my 'Back' button! Huzzah! I can deal with the silly swipe down and away now that I can return to the previous video easily. Thanks, Google.
I've skipped every update to this app since they took away the simple 'back' button and implemented their idiotic swipe down and then swipe away design. C'mon, Google. I check back with each new update and read the reviews. It seems that they keep messing it up more and more. Oh well, I'll hold on to my old, old version until they get it right. At this rate, it's never going to be right.
Once again, another unnecessary, updated design.
Not to be offensive, but who thought that the new update was a good idea? Everything was fine before the update. It's very inconvenient and tedious to have to go back, and back, and back, and back, and so forth just to go to my sub feed. The previous layout was fine as I could just swipe and all of my playlists, sub feed, and everything else was in one place without having to actually go back so many times. Very annoying. The update is bad and you should feel bad. Please change it back.
Once again the app took a turn for the worst. Please, stop "fixing" things that aren't broken. The new look is nice and all, but it repeats its last mistake. That being, having to repeatedly click the Back button in order to view either the home page, sub feed, or account which again, is very frustrating. If you're going to update something, just change it back to its previous state and change the color or something if you really feel the need that it needs "fixing" or "updating." It was fine the way it was. Stop making it worse.
How not to design an interface
This new update manages to completely obfuscate the otherwise simple navigation of the app. Subscribed channels lists are now reduced to "pearls" containing the cover image for the channel. The pearl bar scrolls left to right under the "Subscribed" header, without any indication of where you are in the list (better remember who selected which header image). New content is indicated by a blue dot under the pearl, which is not bad.
Now for the full-on stupidity: tapping a pearl navigates you to a new screen with the channel features, but the pearl bar disappears. Navigation back is solely possible through a back-arrow, so it is no longer possible to quickly browse your subscribed channels outside of the "home screen", which only shows a date-ordered list of all new content. Further, the new-content detection is, as always, broken, so it is also impossible to tell if the "blue dot" indicates recent new content or just content added since the last update.
While this interface may make sense on an smartphone, it makes no sense whatsoever on an iPad or, I might add, any tablet. A terrible blow to usability.
