Customer Reviews

It's great!

If I had to request anything, if you can get scrolling to be faster and lag less, that would be great.

Thank you for your work on this amazing app! Now I don't have to search for my playlist in my hundreds of google chrome tabs!

Very Good Stable APP

I have been using this App to whatch and listen to youtbue every day. I love having it running bit being able to use my main browser in another screen. The only function that I wanted was support for 360 video, but Safari does not support it either, so I guess it is on par with it.

Great app!

It does what it should basically. All works as expected, no annoying ads or something! And it’s completely free! Keep it up guys!
