Following last year's launch of its dedicated YouTube Mobile client for Windows Mobile (and S60) smartphones, YouTube has recently updated its YouTube app for Windows Mobile and S60 phone. Since last March, 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. However, yesterday YouTube introduced version 2.4 which features search query suggestions, "My Account" support and a new homescreen user interface that is optimized for larger screens. The initial release sported a minimized set of features and focused on speed for things that matter: To find and play a video on your smartphone.
Now, when you log into your YouTube account on our phone, you can view your favorites, subscriptions and playlists from wherever you are. Another feature that the company have added is query suggestions. When you type into the YouTube search box, you get relevant suggestions. This saves on typing which is especially useful for mobile phones where text input may be difficult.
YouTube v2.4 is now available free of charge from YouTube and runs on Windows Mobile 5.0 Professional or better.
