Good viewing experience, but NO Download option

A decent viewing experience overall, but unlike the version purchased directly from the developer's website, this version has NO Download option for videos. It's only meant as a pure watching experience.

Had I known this I would have opted for the non-App Store version, I love to save any nifty videos I come across for small projects and such, but now I've spent the money I had in reserve for a pretty obsolete app, when it comes to my specific needs.

I do understand App Store restrictions limited the addition of this feature, but there should have been a disclaimer somewhere in the description stating so. With a product that shares the same exact name as the other, one can only expect the same features, but this is clearly not the case here.

The only place where it is noted that this version includes No Download option is in a small strip of text found on the download page of the product, under a small download button. Not very conspicuous to consumers if you ask me.

ONLY for watching, NOT for downloading. Be forewarned.

Are you blind or what?

Really feel like you can't get a better understanding with that coding talent of yours. Most minitube applications are still malfunctioning for no reason and you can't even take a better look as too why that is. Come on Flavio, Dissect the bloody application and update it to where it is functional perfectly on Big Sur already.

Keeps Crashing

This app was made for some other country, not the USA. It must be incompatible with US computers. It worked for the first couple weeks Ive had it. Also, when i bought the app it was advertised as $5.99 but on my Apple reciept it showed 8.99. Just an awful download.
