    So after the Youtube app is gone is some places (guess I can't watch Youtube videos right out of the browser unless I switch back to Nodo with the app in the backup...) and all the WP support has to say about it is: No information, I just noticed that the MS Tag app is gone too. Pretty useless once Mango rolls around but right now, they redirect you to the marketplace and there it just says you can't download.

    So, question, who else doesn't have the app on their Marketplace? Probably about the same countries as the Youtube app and I think this is one of MS biggest problems. Things just go away and no one even mentions them. And since there's no real download history you can't even redownload the apps.

    Guess I'll see if all the apps return once Mango rolls around. I'm not holding my breath though... :/

    I have both the MS Tag reader and Microsoft You Tube apps showing in the UK marketplace.

    And I'm seeing both in the US Marketplace as well (NoDo).

    They're both pointless with Mango. IE9 can browse youtube's HTML5 just fine, and Bing Vision can read HCCBs.

    Granted, not everybody has it, but it's expected for most devices in a couple of weeks. It would be slightly strange updating/maintaining the apps. Time and money better spent elsewhere! Pulling them is a spot odd, though.

    They're both still showing for me, on handset (Mango B2) and in Zune, UK.

    Yeah can't wait to get Mango back, hopefully as you say, in the next couple of weeks. (The official way!) :)

    It's not about the fact that they're gone, it's why they're gone only in some countries. Microsoft makes really no sense most of the time.
