YouTube for iOS was updated with an annoyance-fixer on Wednesday that improved the ability to view long comment strings, along with a bug fix for headphone video control.

As shown above, opening lengthy comment strings now bring up a new dialogue for viewing that isolated conversation. You can scroll up and down to your hearts content, and when you’ve finished you can tap the X in the upper right hand corner to return to the main comment view. The same scroll view is now shown when replying to singular comments, too.
