9.5 Awesome

If you’ve ever watched a video online, chances are, you’ve used Youtube. It’s the best place to find viral videos and other entertaining movies, and share your special moments with others. Before Youtube got bought by Google, the app was not so great, but Google has done a lot to improve it. Now, it’s a pretty useful app, which works seamlessly with your Google login.

In the latest edition, there is a great new feature that allows users to load videos in the background while multitasking in other apps, which sort of makes up for the sometimes long load times. Whether you’re using Youtube’s app to find a funny clip or a great song, Google is updating it every few weeks to make it even easier to watch videos on your mobile device.
