Last night I was taking a look through the CrackBerry app store to see what new apps had been released and updated. I happened to notice a YouTube player that was listed as free so decided I should give it a look. There has been a few YouTube apps made available in the past but most are either no longer supported, only available on certain devices or just plain suck. Simply named Player for YouTube, this one is free and looks nice.

That is a rather large feature list for an app that is available for free. After testing the app out for a few videos I can surely say it beats firing up YouTubes mobile version all the time. Currently, OS 4.6 and up is the umbrella for supported devices and this includes the BlackBerry Storm. If you find yourself using YouTube a lot you may find this to be a better option.
