What is it about?

With YouTube, it's easier than ever to share your favorite videos. You don't have to copy and paste links anymore, because that's so iOS 10.

Why we love it

YouTube has arguably the best collection of videos on the Internet. You can find everything from the most recent or classic music videos to footage of cats playing with laser pointers. It seems like so many people want to be YouTube stars, so you'll also find plenty of home video footage that's funny, sad, inspirational, and everything in between. If you aren't sure whether you've already watched a video, the YouTube app has a great feature to help. A recent update added the progress bar to search results, history, and more, making it easy to see how much of a video you've already viewed.
