Apple Removes YouTube from Latest iOS6 Software
This is interesting, Apple has decided that it is no longer going to include the very popular and probably very highly used youtube app in the newest iOS6 software. The app won’t come prepackaged like it does now but you can still download it from the app store. I don’t understand the reasoning behind this but maybe they are just trying to reduce the prepackage clutter? Or is it just another one of the Apple Vs. Google battles where Apple does not want to support Google in any way since they own YouTube. Here is what Apple had to say about it,
“Our license to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended. Customers can use YouTube in the Safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the app store.”
Also did anyone see that Google reported some higher numbers for this quarter than what analysts expected.
So, what are your thoughts on the reasoning behind this move? An app that has always been included with the iOS is now suddenly being pulled?
Vimeo? Everything changes.
Who uses YouTube besides tweens and those who want to rip the audio for a free MP3?
I am sure iTunes feels the loss of sales.
I will checkout vimeo. Is the content “family friendly” only, like YouTube?
I like Daily Motion for my less than family friendly content.
