iOS App Display YouTube Videos

In the iPhone app above, multiple video playlists are displayed on the screen on the left. This is the screen that displays when a user taps on the Videos icon in the main lower navigation bar. The user can select from one of the video categories to navigate to the video list. Next, the user can tap on the specific video that they want to view, which brings them to the detail view. On the detail view (right hand side), in addition to being able to play the view, users can share the video via email, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as bookmark the video in the app so that they can find it easily later.

Users can also click on the subscribe button to subscribe to the channel on YouTube.
