Also new is the addition of gestures to assist with searching during playback of videos. Just swipe down to bring the current video to the bottom right. This brings back the main page to allow searching for new videos. You can also swipe the thumbnail video to the left or right to make it disappear. To bring up the main menu, swipe in from the left of the screen.

These new features are aimed at bringing more eyeballs to YouTube views for Google and it appears like it’ll work. Click here to download YouTube for iOS, it’s free.
