Ratings and Reviews
Download banner issue
When trying to download video, there is a huge banner that pops up on the middle of the display that obscures the entire display and prevents interacting with the app.
Solution: a banner that appears at the bottom or top of the display with the progress bar that also allows interacting with the app while the video is being downloaded.
Fantastic resource for health education
