Youku English or International Version?
Regretfully, Youku hasn't yet given a pure Youku English release or Youku International version of the app for inter-fans at the current. Although most people can search by the keyword "Youku" and then the Youku app would pop out of the App Store, this app is wrapped in Chinese which is certainly difficult for people who can't understand the Chinese language.
