HTC YouTube App for Windows Phone 7 Hacked For Use On Other Handsets – Download NOW !

Available for download here, Hounsell made the announcement in a tweet today while adding ‘Seems HTC did the kind thing and removed all the breaking code from the old version’.

WPCentral installed the app on their LG Quantum with no issues and there is no doubt HTC’s app is one of the best implementations of YouTube around for Windows Phone 7.
