Interestingly, the app is at top of the free to download apps of Google. Apple launched the iPhone app in 2012 for all the iOS operated devices. The reason behind the app launch was lacking support of built-in YouTube app in the new iOS 6 software.

With the trend of uploading more videos onto this most popular video platform, the app received more popularity. After Google’s release of YouTube capture for Apple’s iPhone, the app came to help those fond of sharing interesting videos with friends and other contacts. The app also allows a user to share YouTube videos for other social channels like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. All this is a matter of just a few clicks.

Following are the apps picked by the Editor at App Store:

  • Action Movie FX is the best iPhone app

The list seems interesting, particularly for YouTube, as its fans always hunt for the website wherever they are.

It has helped those who upload videos on this platform and want to increase YouTube views. The more people could access YouTube at ease, the more videos will get the views, simple is the logic.

    In fact several “analysts” reported that iOS6 adoption rate wasn’t affected by Google Maps being realised–In fact, two of them retracted their statements after evidence was shown that the figures were altered due to the release of the iPhone 5 in markets like China.

    Do you serious expect iDB to “correct or retract” every time something is reported based on facts available at the time? Get real…
