Fine app with small glitches (Downgraded) Not sure why new version of the app is not coming up.This has become too buggy off late. After upgrading to Android 4.4, am facing a lot of issues. For a start, the movie timeline shows a garbage start and and time and progress bar is always at the end. I don't know for sure what is the time of the current moment on the video. There are many others, I don't wanna go into depth of all those.. But earnestly, as I have contributed towards your rent payment, Mr. Developer, I really hope better services frm u

Makes chrome unusable When I got this app it seems great and work flawlessly. However, my computer started having all kinds of pop ups. Google search even had trouble working. I deleted the app off my computer just to see if it would change, and it did. DO NOT DOWNLOAD

Too Buggy I bought this for my iPhone awhile back and loved it, so I decided to get the android version as well when I upgraded to a Galaxy S5. The Apple version has better features and is less buggy. There are no swipe gestures to fast forward/rewind, if the video is exited during playback, I cannot start from the beginning, the overlay gets stuck if I seek through the video, and if I choose the highest quality audio from advanced settings, there is no audio output at all.
