I wish I've gotten this sooner!

I read about this app on 9to5Mac but for some reason I didn't immediately download it. A few weeks ago I redownloaded it and oh my god why didn't I do this sooner?! I *needed* an app like this for so long!!! The tagging features, the ability to add notes, the ability to quickly add a video I come across without filling up my playlists, being able to search, being able to add multiple at once...I cannot stress how much of a life saver this app is. I'm ecstatic someone finally made it! Thank you!!!

Could improve usability

It's a good example of an app designed to do one thing. Whether or not it is doing its one thing *well* depends a lot on your workflow. Don't expect to be able to add tags to video when adding them; don't expect any kind of advanced filtering or sorting.

For example, you definitely can't filter/sort items that *do* have X tag(s) but *do not* have Y tag(s). You can't display items with X tag(s) but then sort or group items together with Y tag(s).

Applying tags to items is probably one of the most annoying problems: You cannot select multiple items and assign tag(s) to all of them at once. It's even more frustrating that you cannot add tags while importing/adding items.

It would be extremely nice to be able to select tags during import. It would be even nicer to have the option to automatically apply whatever tags are currently used as a filter when adding new items so that users don't have to reset their filters, go back to the full list of items, apply tags to items (one by one), and then set up filters again. That isn't a great user experience.

However, the app is new and the developer seems eager to keep adding features and improving the app. It really is useful, and the many features that *are* implemented are pretty well thought out.

I'll definitely be adjust my rating as the app continues to improve. Thankfully, this is exactly the kind of app I feel confident *will* continue to improve.

This app is a gem

I'm so impressed not only by the app itself, but the rapid pace of development of the app with key new features. Lovely and easy to use.

One reviewer complained about not being able to resize Play to be 1/3 of their screen. Yet I can easily do that on my laptop to accomplish just what they wanted.

Thoughtful, clean design without bloat. I wish all apps were as useful and easy to use.
