New update gets rid of even the most basic of things, like clicking on the slider to jump ahead. You literally have to tap the video, then grab the slider and move that vs just clicking where you want on the video timeline. It's also much larger on the search screen with it only showing 2 videos on my 6.5" screen... ridiculous. Of course Google can do no wrong and won't actually fix these issues. Prove me wrong Google. Update to this review... they've made it worse...

This is one of my favorite apps. But I can't give it 5 stars due to a few bugs. The comments section of videos freeze up and I cannot scroll up and down them if I have the app open too long. Also, I'll open a video and there'll be no sound. And rarely, the video screen blacks out. I have to close and reopen the app or video to restore these. It shouldn't be happening at all though. You should also implement a way to play playlists in reverse.

The double tap to go forward or backward has gotten much worse since the last update. The area that can be used for it is much smaller. Its so close to the skip video forward or back thats its hard to not just skip the video. Thats starts the ads you have inbetween videos. So i have to watch an ad and then go back to the video, then attempt to use the double tap again without skipping and watching another ad. I used to be able to use most of the screen for double tap. Please bring that back.
