YouTube app hitting PS Vita

I'm hoping it hits the EU store today, as America got it yesterday. Here's the word from the US blog for features. Hopefully it will sync to your Google or YouTube account for subscriptions and the like (although judging by the comments, you can't).
Hi everyone! Recently, we announced that YouTube would be coming to PS Vita. It’s the latest application to be added to PS Vita’s growing portfolio of applications and one that takes full advantage of PS Vita’s high-definition and 3G capabilities. Starting later today, the YouTube application will be available as a free download via the PS Vita Store on PSN.
With the YouTube application on PS Vita, you can watch millions of YouTube videos on PS Vita’s stunning 5” OLED screen. And with 3G, you can watch your favorite content – from comedy to gaming tips to viral videos – while you’re at home or on-the-go. The application itself is straightforward and easy to use.

Key features include: Recommended Videos: Displays videos recommended from YouTube
Search: Search for videos by typing a keyword
Viewing History : Displays the most recent videos you’ve viewed
Add to Favorites: Displays a list of videos you’ve added to your Favorites list. You must be signed into your account to add a video to your Favorites.

On the back of this, the browser will get an update too, seriously the weakest part of the Vita's arsenal (love the Twitter and Facebook apps).
