YouTube Arrives as Standalone App in Android Market (Froyo Only)

Google continues to pull applications out of Android and release them as standalone titles.  Following hot on the tail of last month’s Gmail client is YouTube.  The app entered the Android Market last night as v2.0.26 for Android 2.2 handsets and higher.  And rather than just extracting the same old video player, they’ve made some great adjustments.  Features include a new UI design, the ability to read comments while videos play, rotate-for-fullscreen, and personalized home screens!  If you have a Froyo-powered device, you’ll want to download YouTube immediately.
