This is the screen that displays when a user taps on the Videos icon in the main lower navigation bar. The user can select from one of the video categories, which causes the app to display the screen in the middle. This is a list view of all the videos in that playlist. Next, the user can tap on the video they want to play. In addition to playing back the video in the app, the user can also subscribe to the YouTube channel, share the video via email, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as bookmark the video in the app so that they can find it easily later.
