I am wondering, normally if a feature is removed from a product, the consumer has the right to complain. in this case officially Apple surely has a disclaimer someplace saying that it can always change the specs, still I believe this is customer rights issue. Just as new additions are announced when an iOS is introduced, deletions should be announced as well. Then it should be up to the consumer to choose whether to upgrade or not.
I believe this whole iOS 6 scam is a game to get rid of all sorts of G connection. We are tricked and thats what it is.
That's three reviews right there all dated before the public release of iOS 6 and all saying the YouTube app will be removed. How much more advanced warning do you need?
So we are supposed to do a search of all of the articles in cyberspace before we upgrade? Sorry I don't consider that advanced warning. Now if apple said they were removing YouTube in plain language, I would consider that advanced warning.
No one read the 36 pages that you have to agree to in any program before you can click the button to install it.
The word upgrade means improved to me.

There;s an app called Vdownloader. It has an orange icon and is free to download from the appstore. It works exactly like youtube except you can't sign in. Allthough this might be a complication, you can download the vidoes to your iPad. This makes it totally worth it.
I did not think, until so far, that I had to do a background check on whatever Apple was doing. I always thought a new iOS will bring improvement. Never questioned Apple's unwavering customer focus. Now I understand that this focus is on politics. What's more, I liked the strict control that Apple is imposing on its users and decided to switch to Apple products because I thought with such control, you will never have virus or incompatibility issues. I NEVER in my life thought this control could be dared to be used to CONTROL the users themselves and against their wishes. Now that is the issue.
Of course there can be many applications that can do better than the original Youtube or Google Maps apps, that is not the issue.

It's just awful, taking out applications people use all the time! Then not letting us downgrade back to how we like to use the products we own. When I goto YouTube on safari and play in full screen, not only is it not full screen but the play button is still in the video while the video is playing. Very upset with Apple... Took functionality away from an awesome device. Might as well just buy an android tablet next time around...where I won't have to sync via iTunes for every piece of media and have more control over the device I purchased.
its not that if you go to IOS 6 they have what its compatible with on each device. i know this doesnt help but its just a little fyi. but i have the iPhone 5 and its amazing. not sure if you have an update but i would definitly recomend getting it. It blows the galaxy s3 out of the picture user wise, and statistically. I have had an android before and wouldnt go back to it. I love my 5 and its the best phone out.
