    I use metrotube, but that's no longer available. Supertube is pretty good.

    I thought Lazytube became Metrotube but since then has been discontinued.

    Google owns Youtube for quite some time but doesn't allow Microsoft to make an official Youtube app for God knows what reason. ( Youtube has an official app on Xbox so it's not like they hate each other )

    All joking aside, I think it's a function of marketshare. I would not be surprised to find out that it's on their list of **** to do, but Windows Phone users are few and far between, so it's likely just low priority.

    I think HTC Youtube app broke because when API changes on Google's end, HTC was too lazy to update the app. My HTC Youtube app wasn't working for the past few days or weeks. So I just uninstalled it.

    where did you find the htc youtube app ? and how did you side load it? i knew how to do that on android but not on wp7... i loved that app, it meshed well with the metro UI , kinda looked like zune... plus the tile looked good. so evidently HTC pulled the app and the only people with it now had it previously downloaded, which means it will no longer be updated either...
