YouTube Gaming app goes live for iPhone and iPad

Google is finally making its move to battle Twitch in the popular live game streaming market with the previously announced launch of YouTube Gaming. The new service aims to put the power and reach of YouTube into the hands of game streaming content creators and fans.

The service has now released its YouTube Gaming app for the iPhone and iPad, along with its web portal and Android apps. Google has already announced that fans of watching live game streams will be able to check out 25,000 individual titles with dedicated YouTube Gaming pages. Content creators will have access to 60fps stream support, along with DVR features and a way to convert their live streams quickly into regular YouTube videos.

We have already posted our early impressions of the YouTube Gaming Android app, based on playing an older beta version.
