YouTube on the iPad

image by webtreats

The iPad is a device that encourages multimedia consumption. I read more tweets, play more With Friends and watch more videos ... well, at least, until recently. Video on the iPad just isn't the same since iOS 6. With the Apple's native YouTube app gone and Google's YouTube app only optimized for smaller screens, iPad owners have been left to fend for themselves. Dissatisfied with the new normal, I started searching for better apps to watch YouTube on the iPad.

Wandering through the App Store, I found that I'm not alone. With so many iPad owners surprised to find the video app missing from their home screen, there are a lot people searching for a replacement. As long as you're downloading a new app, don't just settle for a YouTube alternative. Get something better! We found some iPad apps that improve the YouTube experience.
