Sleeping worms apparently find the best videos
YouTube by Lazyworm Review
by on December 7, 2010
All the way back at the start of Windows Phone 7 apps, when the phones were shiny and new and the mere thought of Nokia joining up was laughable, the best YouTube application out there was LazyWorm’s version.
Admittedly, it was the best thanks to simply being a native application and not a simple jump to the mobile site, but now it’s been rebooted to be all proper and that.
This means a whole host of new functionality, such as the ability to comment on videos, rate them up or down via the power of ‘Liking’ and ‘Disliking’ and now see how well-rated a video is through a coloured bar: more green is better, just like real YouTube.
Once you’ve logged in, you can access your subscribed channels as well as see your favourites; the latter relies on the video being on the mobile site, but it’s pretty well-stocked these days.
We wouldn’t have dreamed of calling this a negative before, but the fact we can’t see our playlists is now grating as we can do pretty much everything else with this app.
High quality streaming is now available over 3G for those that love to suck down data, and slider mute and seek controls make this almost as good as Google’s Android app.
An easy five stars to give – the creators could charge a couple of quid for this and we’d still think it was top notch.
