YouTube update brings a fresh coat of paint and new editing tools

The official YouTube app has been updated this evening, bringing a fresh redesign to all, along with some new editing tools right in the app. The fresh coat of paint has been in testing for a while, but it's now available for all users. Here's how Google describes what's new:

The redesigned YouTube app makes it easier to find what you love. Now your recommended videos, favorite channels, and subscriptions can be accessed by tapping each icon or swiping your screen. You can also create fun videos on the fly with new in-app editing tools.

Overall, the redesign brings the app up to par with its Android counterpart, featuring more color and tabbed navigation between your Home, Subscriptions, and Account pages. Also included are some new editing tools that should let you more easily prep clips from your iPhone.
