Works fine for a limited amt of movies. Once you get over, say 50 or so half hour movies, the app begins to crash regularly both while downloading or when trying to play back or even when just scrolling through the thumbnails. I have over 100 movies loaded and can't scroll more than a quarter ways down without crash after crash. Sometimes takes as many as 10 tries to load a single movie for later viewing. This happens across all websites I try to download from. Also, you can't output to a tv, only view on the device.
If it wasn't for the fact that I cannot find another app that has the functionality of this one ( when it does actually work ), I'd dump it even though I paid for it.
I'm giving it 2 stars only because it will work for some people who use it to watch vids later and then delete them and don't build up a big library.
Based on feedback from the creator I erased it and reloaded it and hen upgraded to the full version, again. Now it just crashes more frequently!
Nice app...could definitely use some upgrades though...
I wish you guys would create a way to back up videos off site, as you can do with regular videos n pics through drop box and other applications. Since videos take up so much space, it's hard to download many. It would be nice if this feature was added to unlocked roadshow users.
Another nice option would be the ability to at least place videos in folders within the app, as well as a locked folder option to keep people from snooping.
This is a really nice app in general, but I do not like how it cancels a download if you switch screens. Running in the background would be another amazing upgrade to a currently good app.
Was the best.....
I would have given this a 5 stars if after about a month it still worked. I contacted support they said to delete my app then reinstall, only I would lose my videos. But that was ok as long as I was able to get them back it was going to be fine. I deleted and what do you know it still didn't work! I even tried it on my wife's iPad for hers and it still didn't work. Then my mothers and fathers and all of them stopped. I contacted support once again. "It works fine for me just delete and reinstall but you will lose your music" No crap! Thanks for nothing and a waste of money. Get better contact support. They are rude and just make you want to scream. If I tell them a site doesn't work for more than 4 people you think you would respond with someone better than "well I was able to save a video from there" yeah what ever. I hope this app and its developers get it together.
