I picked up my xoom earlier tonight and have been playing with it but I cant seem to find the YouTube app. It says it is installed when I go in settings, but it doesn't show up in the app list. Am i alone on this one?
thanks!

Make sure you click "All" in apps (upper left corner).

If you're in "My Apps", you won't see YouTube, as well as many other apps that are pre-installed.

I'm also missing "Books"

When i click "All" the apps are not there

Also

When i click the
Books" icon it says "Application is not installed"

So i went to Settings | Applications |Manage applications |All

Books has 0.00B

Youtube 8.00KB

i factory reset about 3 times... 1st 2 becasue i was under impression that my google settings were syncing and try to download that apps from my phone to my xoom.

3rd time i didnt use a google account and still happening....

Did you buy your Xoom from UK? I bought mine from US and I also don't see featured apps for tablets.

About Youtube, it didn't show up under the apps for me too at first, but when I connected to internet and added a google account it magically appeared. It still shows only 8kb in system settings, so this is normal.

Sorry to go off topic but where did you get your zoom from?

Do a factory reset. This fixed it for several of us.

Settings -> privacy -> factory data reset

Missing YouTube Also
I had to exchange for a new Xoom yesterday. I bought it from Costco and cannot get the YouTube app to download. It shows that it is in my system, but it isn't under the apps.
The YouTube app did work on the original Xoom I had, but I can't get it to work on this one. I'm on my 3rd factory reset.

Side note, my 'Books' don't work either...like EL_G15, it says 'Application is not Installed'

They're not missing. They're corrupted. If you go to manage apps you'll see that they'll show 0kb size. Not sure what else we tried but I know specifically that after I rooted mine the youtube and books app were at 0kb. Factory reset fixed it.
