Last I saw there was a YouTube app! In fact, you can even SHARE videos directly to YouTube and it will upload it to your account.
I know I wasn't imagining things because a BlackBerry employee showed me the functionality.

I really don't think this would be high on the list of priorities for BlackBerry since the browser will play the videos just fine. Granted, an app would make accessing some features more user friendly on a small screen. Doesn't affect me much (or wont if I get a BB10 phone) as I don't use YouTube all that often but I can definitely see the benefit of a native app if you are a heavy user.
A native app will come down to two things. Either Google makes it or BlackBerry. If Google, they wont do it until there is enough of a user base that they can justify the time/money spent. This means you will likely have to wait a while (which while unfortunate is completely understandable for a new platform). If Blackberry, then again you will likely have to wait a while since they will have many other priorities on their list. As RIM/BlackBerry came out with a lot of great native apps for the old phones without waiting for companies to release them, there is hope there.
In either case, it will take time (again, unfortunate but nothing that can be done about it).
Anyone try sideloading the Android YouTube app to see if that works?Current phones: Z10 and Nexus 4

I know everyone says the browser experience is good enough for this.
I have an Android phone atm, and the YouTube app is great. One feature is the ability to preload videos on WiFi for viewing later. I have a 45min train journey to and from work with sketchy mobile coverage so this can be very useful.
Is there any way a mobile version can do this? I'm not trying to poke holes, just asking.
