Google releases official YouTube app for iPhone

iOS 6 should be out soon, and ahead of its arrival Google has released their official app for YouTube. That's because iOS 6 will no longer have a built-in YouTube app. This initial offering is tailored for the iPhone and iPod touch, and there's not yet a version tailored for the iPad. I like it better than the original app because it uses a different category structure. But I still don't see that there's a way to watch YouTube's movies. Also, i doesn't appear to support AirPlay. In general, user ratings are giving it high marks.
