Proper youtube app

    The regular youtube app does not allow you to reply to comments, it only lets you post a comment on the video but not in reply to someones else's comment. It also doesn't show who's comment is in reply to who's, you don't get to see the "In reply to xxxx" button that you would normally click to see the conversation, all comments are presented to you while you read them as if they are in reply to the video.

    So I tried going to youtube in both Chrome and Dolphin browers and then I was allowed to reply to people comments, well sort of, not quite the proper way. You see, when you click a comment it opens up a reply box, but it does the @davidzzzz bullshit instead of replying to the comments the way youtube has them set up, so this way the person you are replying to does not get the email notification saying that someone replied to their comment, they have to go and search the videos comments to see if anyone posted "@You", which is not something I expect people to bother with.

    You also can't vote peoples comments up or down with the youtube app or the browser.

    So how do I see Youtube comments the same way I see them on a full size operating system and internet browser?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Not really sure actually. While the app is useful it is also limited as well.
    I have found that, but never really thought much of it. Maybe that can be part of there next update perhaps?

    What would be the best way to go about suggesting it to them?

    Until then I need an app that can show the comments properly, doesn't have to be from google.

    You could go to the Google Play store and see if you can email them. Is your Youtube app up to date? If not you could update it and see if it brings some of these features.
