Great Solution

The app works as expected and does the job perfectly. Yes it needs more features, but I believe it will get better as the app is very new. However, my main concern is the uncertainty and longevity of this app after I pay for it (though it’s just $2). How long would it take for Google to take some action? Although it’s extremely petty of Google to not enable the PiP feature anyway, because they believe it should be a “premium feature”. Overall, great work dev!

Update: I deducted a star because there is no option to select the quality of the video.

Don’t buy it.

Trial lasts 3 days, for me I was starting to consider it to be like winrar because for me at least it lasted over a month. I didn’t use it everyday though once-twice a week. Some videos would have problems and couldn’t work, some I needed to put the URL in manually, though it’s free can’t argue it does have flaws. Trial ended only $2 I went for it. Just paying for it was difficult I kept getting an application error when I’d try to buy it couldn’t even get far enough to pick a payment method or confirm the payment. Eventually I was able to pay for it and now after over a week I either get a domain error when I try to use it or it just flat out crashes.

Since I have purchased the app it has never successfully worked. Do not purchase this.

Does what it says, no gimmicks.

The app works exactly as you expect, and has helped me tremendously as of recently. Sure, the quality of the video can be inconsistent at times, but the fact alone that this works is enough to keep me using it. Plus, $1.99 isn’t a bad price to pay when the dev is generous enough to throw in a 3-day trial. There WAS a bit of an issue for a while where the videos wouldn’t play anymore, but the developers quickly worked on it. Overall, highly recommend this underrated app.
