Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Great and works fine.
Great App and works fine. I use it on the iPad and use AirPlay for sound on wifi speakers. Must be able to mirror it on Apple TV, haven't tried this yet. Works flawless. Read the previews reviews. The App is offered in the US Store coz of US Account holders who are in Europe can watch it as well. And with certain proxy apps it might work world wide.
Videos still not updated for iPhone X?!
5 months and still can’t watch the videos full screen on iPhone X! Even worse, the videos are cropped and the texts and subtitles are cutoff on the screen..
Needs your email address to make bookmarks
This is a great app but there’s one big bummer. Why do I need to register to use the bookmark function? There’s really no user justifiable reason for that. No, I do not want to sync my bookmarks. If I do, you can still use my iCloud account for that but please make that optional, not mandatory.
