YouTube for BB10, one of the deciding factors.
Everything I have read about the BB10 is idea for me. I am looking forward to leave Android and get myself a new BB. However, I love the YouTube app, it's my used app outside texting. I was curious how good will the BB YouTube app be?

To be determined. It should be pretty decent, and there would be the option of porting/sideloading the Android YouTube app, if all else fails.Bacon should be reclassified as meat candy.Devices: SPH-A620/VGA 1000, Sanyo Katana, BlackBerry 8330, 9630, 9670, MB855 Photon, SPH-L710 Galaxy SIII.

I do not know for sure...others will have better answers I am sure, but given the superior browser, and the inclusion of flash, I cannot imagine that youtube would be an issue at all.Bell Mobility WHITE Z 10

Not sure if this helps or not, but there is a little API available to 3rd party developers.

I caught this little goodie, in Parental Controls, there is an Upload To YouTube option which led me to believe that YouTube will be an out of the box experience or work well enough to be controlled.

BB10 browser is so good you can just go to youtube.com, even the playbook is almost perfect on the actual website. RIM has stated in the past its not about shrinking down the internet experience to get on mobile (thats what apps do), Its about bringing mobile up enough to get the full online experince.

If you notice, the current Android YouTube browser is mainly gesture controlled. It would run VERY slickly on BB10. I'm really hoping there will be a similar app...but since YouTube is owned by Google and there have been rumors that Google's services won't be supported on BB10 (is this still true? I might be out of the loop) then that might be something of concern.I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them. - Andy Bernard

BB 10 Browser has a feature that was demonstrated in one of the videos:
-> you go to a site (say, YouTube), open the page you want (for YouTube, I guess, this would be their homepage as it has search bar etc.)
-> Now, you can save this in "favorites" (as all browsers can) but you can also save it as a launcher (as an icon on your BlackBerry launcher)
so, next time you want to go to YouTube, you don't have to open the browser -> and go to YouTube from there. You can simply click on "YouTube" shortcut on your BlackBerry desktop (BlackBerry app launcher) and it'd straight away take you to YouTube
Now, if more and more sites start supporting HTML 5, you won't even need to download any apps as such. Just save those apps as icons on BB and it'd behave like an app!
So, even if YouTube has NO app for BlackBerry, you can have almost app like experience by simply saving YouTube (shortcut/icon) from your BB browser to your BlackBerry desktop (app launcher)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: YouTube for BB10, one of the deciding factors.
^^ Agreed. It is a web launcher that you make yourself for any web page you use often. I've done it for banking ,youtube, online movie sites like crackle, and much more. Native apps have their appeal, but when this is your only option you quickly realize it is just as good or better. Even for youtube, they changed their website layout which now works even better on the pb browser with ability to comment. Before it was glitchy and you couldn't comment or like/dislike videos. I posted about this before but nobody cared lol.
