Ratings and Reviews

To upgrade to full ver. is no brainer.


Keep up the good work!
Update: well, i originally thought it's a no brainer 5 stars but I just found that the app won't remember where I was at when watching uploaded files. This is a deal breaker for me since I watch movies a lot and it's really annoying every time it'll start from the beginning. I take 2 stars off just because of this simple yet very important feature. Hope it'll be fixed in next version.
Update2:mailed to the author and got solution in 2 hours. It turns out its by design. It always plays from the beginning if play from "uploaded files from PC" but if the file is added to a playlist, it can play from where it stopped last time.

Back to 5 stars.

Useful, if learning English


I am a native English speaker and I downloaded this app to improve my vocabulary and understanding in other languages. This works well when I watch the TED videos that I am able to download with different subtitles, but other than that, everything is very limited for learning other languages, especially for me as I am studying Polish, which doesn't have a lot of programs made for it. I would love to see some additions to this app with a wider range of audiobooks in different languages, and an easier way to get new subtitles on existing videos and audiobooks, as I don't even think that's possible now.

Very good app, but need some improvment - for example:
Do pause when tapping on sentence two times.

And can you give some advise - where can i take audoibooks with subtitles?
