I've been researching for over an hour and a half, thinking I've found the answer, only for it to fail.  I'm a bit aggravated, and this is my first post here, so forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong area.


Okay... deep breath.  Here it goes.


I'm attempting to log in to the YouTube app on my iPhone 4S (with iOS 6.1.2).  Every single time I log in, I get that dreadful "Authentication Error" message pop up.  I found that apparently I needed to set up a 2-step verification process via my Google account.  I did.  I then added the YouTube app to the "Application-specific passwords" section.  When I attempt to log into the app, it tells me I need to log in with my Google account password - not the password I was just given.


The thing is, I can log in via the mobile site on my iPhone - minus the pesky authentication error!  So what's the problem here?  What am I missing?
