Fresh Android Apps for Dec. 10: Gmail update, YouTube update

Today’s Fresh Android apps features two very important updates for popular stand-alone apps Gmail and YouTube.

YouTube for Android has been given a pretty significant make over. These changes appear to be redesigned in order to mimic the experience you get when visiting the website via a desktop computer. Some of the changes include adjustments to the player itself, in-page playback, the ability to read the video description, browse related content or rate the video while it is playing, or rate and flag videos without interrupting video playback. There are also subscription updates that make it easier to access new videos right from the home screen of the app. The app now will work similarly to how the iPhone works — when you rotate your phone, the video will fill the screen. These updates only work for phones running Android 2.2 and above.
