Google is on a serious roll lately - after releasing standalone Gmail, Maps, Navigation, Street View, and Car Home apps, today the company continued to decouple its applications from the core of the Android OS with the release of the standalone YouTube app.

Not only is the app now updateable using the Market, which means we'll get updates faster and without requiring OTAs, but it also comes with a shiny new UI, ability to vote, view and leave comments, and play videos in portrait mode. Check out the screenshots I took below and hit up the direct Market download link.

    I love the new Gapps, but isn't about time for the new Clock app? I mean, why would Google release the new Voice Search when a feature is broken?
