Apple Well, this is interesting. Apple has released iOS 6 beta 4, and it removes one of the staples of iOS, included since its very first release with the first iPhone: beta 4 does not include the YouTube application. YouTube is owned by Google, so that could be an explanation. However, unless Google has its own iOS YouTube application ready, iOS 6 could lead to a lot of unhappy iPhone and iPad users. The large websites with sources inside Apple are probably hard at work trying to find out what's going on here - could just be a bug, or maybe a way to gauge public response by causing news sites and blogs to post about it. Huh. Update: thank god for sites with clout: The Verge confirms that Google is working on a stand-alone iOS YouTube application. Good news for users, since the stock one wasn't particularly good to begin with.

Didn't VLC support all kinds of codes? They were allowed in the app store before getting pulled because of GPL stuff.

VLC is still on my iDevices and still supports lots of codecs :-) You just needed to buy it before it was pulled (g)

Yes, I have it too although I must admit I never used it.

I have a number of kicked apps, maybe I should start a museum.
