It works great!!! - Some people may experience difficulties, if they don’t know how to copy and provide the link to iPull. For example, if you try to download a news video and just give it the URL of the page that the video is on it might not work. So, you might try the following (which worked for me): click on the video as it is playing (after any initial ads), click open menu, click share video, copy link, and then paste into the iPull address bar. Thank you for a great app that delivered as promised and downloaded a high quality video.
Not so simple - After reading the reviews, I knew there would be some difficulty downloading videos. My issue wasn’t the quality or sound, but everytime I pasted a URL in the box, I received an error message: “Could not retrieve valid URL.” I tried this several ways as suggested in other comments, but it never worked. Really disappointed I spent the money.

Best $2 Ever Spent - It’s so unbelievably frustrating to download videos and a google search gets you crappy software that will only let you download the whole thing if you pay $60 for the full version. This app is TWO DOLLARS and in less than a minute I had downloaded this app AND the video I was trying to download for the past hour. Couldn’t reccommend enough. Well worth it. 5 stars
Bit Confused at First - I downloaded the app, but couldn’t get it to open. Tried for several minutes and then found the FAQ section (not easy to see). After reading the answers in the FAQ’s, I found out that the app would not open like most apps. You have to look in your menu bar (top right hand corner of screen) to find a cloud with an arrow pointing down. Once you open the menubar icon, you copy and paste the url and the video is downloaded into your DOWNLOADS folder. Just clik on the video and it opens right up.
Simply doesn’t work - After trying everything, including the ‘patch’, I can’t get this app to work at all. Always get a URL not identified (or something like that). Tried copy and paste ,of the URL I’m using, exercises with no help (as soon as I try to paste the URL, the ‘drop down’ from the little cloud on the top bar disappears. Checked download files and nothing there from what I tried to download. Guess it’s the $5 wasted. By the way my hardware and operating system are in the ballpark for cited requirements. Another video downloader, on the Apple apps, works fine. …. and it’s free. Go figure.
Perfectly Simple - This app only does a couple things, download videos and importantly for me, extract audio. There are other apps that attempt to do this and other things and judging by their reviews, fails to do much of anything very well. In my experience this app does these two simple things perfectly. It was exactly what I was looking for and I’m relieved by the lack of pain.
Great! But would like to choose resolution! - This app is awesome. Straightforward, works well, works the first time, sits nicely in the menubar. My one request to the developer would be to allow the user to choose the resolution for download. Please! Thank you!
