Not just me then. Thought I was going mad.

iOS 6 Beta 4 Removes Dedicated YouTube App - Mac Rumors
I really couldn't care less if a stand-alone YouTube app is there or not... what little YT video I watch, it's embedded in a web page I'm viewing.

This may be part of Apple's ongoing battle to divorce itself from as much Google as possible. First Google Maps... now YouTube.
I personally think that it will be available shortly in the App store along with the other Google apps for iOS... just won't be bundled on the phone with the iOS any longer...

Well, Google will release the YouTube app and it should be available via the app store.
What I'm concerned about is that, will the lack of Google maps (Apple maps instead) and native YouTube app hinder iOS 5 users from upgrading to iOS 6?

Soon you wont be able to use Google! Better switch to Bing!
There's no reason to upgrade now. They've taken away too much.
I'm just going to stay on iOS5. There's nothing wrong with it. And actually, you could probably jailbreak your new iPhone and put iOS 5 on it.
IOS5 will be to iOS6 what Windows 7 is to Windows 8. Better. The funny thing is watching all of this, it has made me respect Google. They really know how to spook Apple, and they really are catching up.
But then that makes me think about why they get into all of these lawsuits anyway. They virtually sat back and let it happen. Why are they so scared now? I mean, Google went from nothing in the mobile sector to practically #1. Apple has no right to complain.
They had plenty of time to stop it.

Personally, I don't care that the YouTube app is no longer integrated with iOS: I quit using it a while ago once I found out that I could watch HQ videos through the Safari mobile site.

Yes, but if you watch a YouTube video in Safari that's ALL you're doing, you can't do anything else.
You guys are using your phones in a more old fashioned way than I thought.
I mean, even of they take away something like the iPod, you'll just say you never use it. On which case I wonder what you DO use on the phone....?

The YouTube app is not needed. You can get to it the browser or you can install the YouTube app as soon as Google releases it. It is no different than Safari, if you don't want to use that you can install Chrome, or anyone of the 1000 other browsers available.
If you feel that not having YouTube is a deal breaker then, switch to an Android device... That will still have a YouTube app

However if I'm watching a video on YouTube, why would I do anything else? I'm watching a video, not pressing play and walking away. If a text or email comes though, I wait until the video is over.
