Simply standalone perfect! - Love the simplicity of this app and that it runs independently of a web browser. I think it saves memory that way. It’s right there when I need it and it runs smoothly. Excellent app!

Review by Fliegenwulf

Frequent glitches, won’t stay on selected quality setting. - The app frequently changes my manually-selected quality setting to a much lower setting. There is no way to disable the auto video quality feature, and honestly, 360p videos are not even viewable on a 1680x1050 pixel screen. Using full screen does not prevent the app from switching quality settings either. The app changes quality setting when switching from Full Screen to Theater Mode, too. The other issues is, after browsing videos for a few minutes, the “Add to Playlist” button stops working, even though I’m still able to "Like/Dislike" videos and view my own private playlists, meaning that I’m obviously still logged in and didn’t lose my internet connection or anything. The only fix is to quit and restart the application.

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.

Great - If you enjoy watching youtube like you would online this is for you. But, if your looking for something different then not the place to be. Great for what it says it is.
