Many of you were skeptics regarding information we let out regarding the forthcoming upgrade for Android – Gingerbread. One piece of info we told you guys about was a new YouTube app – version 2.0 – that got a significant overhaul in terms of looks to bring it up to par with the rest of the OS. Sure enough, YouTube just hit the Android market today, and it’s everything we heard it would be.
The app has been updated with the ability to like and dislike videos, play videos in portrait mode while taking a gander at other information, and more tidbits we have yet to take a dive into.
I don’t want to say I told you so, but if you don’t believe that we have some hardcore information on Gingerbread now, then this should be our first step to proving just that. We are still digging for more on Gingerbread to share with you in the near future, but for now, just know that that YouTube app we talked about back then is now available for anyone and everyone to download.
[Update]: As far as we can tell, this looks to be for devices running Android 2.2 (and higher). We can’t find it on our 2.1-enabled Fascinate and I’ve checked in with a few friends to see if their Eclair phones could find it. No sale.
