Never had this happen before

This app was working perfectly fine a few days ago. It was running smoothly as usual until I tried to search for a video. Out of the blue I became unable to search for anything. ‘No results found’ was the search result without loading any results. Please fix this.

Piece of Junk

At first it was fine. No random commercials or surveys before the video started. It also had your favorites tucked away. And it played in the background, which was nice.

After about three years, the dumb thing kept crashing, it wouldn't play any videos, it forced me to buy and outrageous price if I wanted to upgrade. The people behind this app tried to fix bugs in the system, but ever time they did this, the app would get even more messed up than it was before.
I really liked this app, because I could watch videos without the age restrictions.
Don't bother even looking at this app, it's a pice of garbage😡😤👿👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

The only reason that, after two years, I stuck with this abominable piece of trash, suffering through forced, unavoidable app closes for advertisements and terrible playback quality, is that I could run it in the background. No app should have such aggressive advertising (two ads in ten seconds!) and now that they have removed background playback, they will never be seeing my patronage again. I'm just glad I never paid for this garbage while it lasted.
