Superior App

This app performance is superior.
I use a Mini-Mac with a dedicated 80” TV for a monitor.
This allows me to use part of the screen watching Fox News video using less resources.
Especially like where you can quit the video & continue the sound - I mean seriously for a news feed video, the video is the least part of attention.
This way I can also read e-mail, set my Fantasy lineup & read sports news sites while listening to the news video simultaneously.

A Great Way to You Tube

This saves so much more time without havinng to go through your browser to get to You Tube and go where you want to go. But I’ve only I’ve only have had the app for a short time. I know this is a improvement put together by a company with a long successful commitment to people helping people.

Independence from the browser best feature

Running a minimized “Tube” is excellent. You can continue to work, while the Tube Viewer allows you to monitor a situation live on your active desktop. Bravo!
