Today's PlayStation Store update brings a free YouTube app to the Vita, with a style that puts other portable video playing devices to shame.

Streaming videos are sure to look amazing on the Vita's screen, and it definitely helps that YouTube and Sony came up with an application to view them looks to be ten times more functional than the sort of thing you get on the iPhone.

Videos will be viewable in two modes – full screen and small screen. In Full Screen mode, a control panel will be displayed on the screen, which will allow you to easily expand or minimize videos. Additionally, an HD button will appear when playing high definition (up to 720p) videos. Simply tap on the HD button to switch from HD to SD.

Isn't that pretty? If I actually carried my Vita anywhere this sure would come in handy.
