Clean and Easy


I love this for it's simplicity. All I want to do is check the day's most popular videos and search for videos on a subject or posted by a particular user. This lets me do all of that without even logging in, and lets me send the link to another app if I want to share it. The independent volume control at the bottom of the video screen is especially useful for vids that are unusually soft or loud, and it doesn't muck up the system volume.

I don't want or need all kinds of bells and whistles. This app is simple, clean, easy, just right.

Piece of Junk


At first it was fine. No random commercials or surveys before the video started. It also had your favorites tucked away. And it played in the background, which was nice.

After about three years, the dumb thing kept crashing, it wouldn't play any videos, it forced me to buy and outrageous price if I wanted to upgrade. The people behind this app tried to fix bugs in the system, but ever time they did this, the app would get even more messed up than it was before.
I really liked this app, because I could watch videos without the age restrictions.
Don't bother even looking at this app, it's a pice of garbage😡😤👿👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

The only reason that, after two years, I stuck with this abominable piece of trash, suffering through forced, unavoidable app closes for advertisements and terrible playback quality, is that I could run it in the background. No app should have such aggressive advertising (two ads in ten seconds!) and now that they have removed background playback, they will never be seeing my patronage again. I'm just glad I never paid for this garbage while it lasted.
