It's okay. Nothing more. Nothing less
It does download fast even with multiple downloads. Only problems I have are:
1.) The files that you download are named by the source and size. Which isn't a problem until you've downloaded 50 videos and find yourself looking for a specific video with only the Megabyte size to distinguish them. Now you find yourself choosing the same videos over and over. It's exactly like looking for a needle in a haystack once you've downloaded over 20 videos. They're not sorted by size or date. So finding a specific videos is really nerve racking.
2.) If your downloading this app to an Iphone then things can get a little sticky. It downloads fast, However if you receive a phone call while downloading a video...CRASH!!
This app would be PERFECT if:
It offered a picture preview of the video downloaded to prevent counterproductive searching.
Along with the random crashes due to phone calls or notifications. I've had the app for two years and I'm satisfied overall. But if there was a download manager that offered a picture preview of the downloaded videos. It would have this app beat hands down
Good app, but could be great
Downgraded to 1 star. Doesn't work at all on iPhone 5 with iOS 6. Get iDownloader Pro, it's far better.
Original Review: This app does what it says it does but needs 1 fix and one feature to be great. First, it has a passcode option to keep prying eyes out of your video collection, but when you open the app, the last thing you were doing flashes on the screen for a second before the password prompt comes up. So, if you were using the built in browser to search for watermelon videos when you closed the app last, the snoop looking through your iPhone will get a facefull of melons when they open the app, then they'll get the password prompt next. That pretty much defeats the purpose of having password protection in the first place. The feature it needs is user-agent switching on the browser. Many adult video sites redirect iPhone traffic to pay sites even though it's all free for iPad users.
Overall, this app is pretty darn good. I would have given it 4 stars if it had been $2 or less.
Does The Job
Works just fine on my 4th Gen iPod on iOS 6. It downloads multiple videos but can be slow depending on your bandwidth. Not only that but its easy to navigate everything.
However, the app does seem to crash a lot. Particularly when watching a just downloaded video, it crashes at the end of the video so I always have to close the video before it completely ends to prevent it.
Not only that but it would be nice to rename the videos before downloading so that they're easier to tell apart. Instead we're kind of left with a bunch of videos that can only be differentiated by their numbers.
Otherwise this app works just fine for what I need it for, to download videos.
