This app is amazing. I recently switched to an iPhone and miss this app dearly. Would you ever consider putting it out on iOS?

Love the app.

1. Is there a paid version or PayPal donation page?

2. Is it possible to select the video player? I like to use MX Player Pro to play videos while my phone is sleeping.

Is anyone else having chugging issues via Chromecast? When I try to watch videos, it will randomly start chugging and stuttering. It won't let up for a while, either. It happens to any video at any time. If I quit one, it chugs in the new video. This is happening regardless of quality too, even when streaming at "mobile."

I love this app, i use it all the time on my phone. Any chance of getting it ported to work on AndroidTV? I tried side loading it but it just crashes on launch.

The latest version (2.5.4) no longer installs on my 5.0 Android tablet. Contacted the dev, but until I get a reply, does anyone happen to have an apk for a previous version (2.4.2 or older) saved somewhere? The only relevant Google result has dead download links for all older versions.

@woozie: I'm replying to your ten month old comment to say, yes it happens to me too. Regardless of video quality or if I download the video or whatever. I'm really not sure why...

Hey, loving the app, makes watching content on my phone so much easier.

Weird bug I'm running into that seems to only happen during GB Crime Crew videos, no matter the quality set and on wi-fi, have started to play for a couple of minutes then start buffering and then get the touch to restart error prompt. Doesn't seem to happen on any other videos, and I can download them and watch them so it isn't a huge deal if there isn't a resolution.

It started on Episode 4 I believe, and the previous episodes didn't seem to have that issue.

App Version 2.8.2

Android Version 9

I'm getting the same error message as the previous post, however it's happening with nearly every video. Lowering the video quality doesn't seem to solve the issue, and I can't seem to download videos anymore.

Android 7.1.1

App 2.8.3

I also tried another app, Giant Bomb Video Buddy, and had similar issues, so I'm wondering if it's something on the site's side.

Same issue as above; watching any video, even on Mobile quality, always cuts out after a minute or two. In my case, it seems like after that happens, no videos will work anymore and I have to force-quit the app and re-launch it before it can actually manage to play any videos again.

videos start up fine, but after +- 40 sec it just cuts out with an 'uh oh an error occurred' message. I've been using youtube for the last week.

I'm having the same problem. Started happening sporadically, now it's happening on most of the videos.

Same problem, every video plays for ~30 seconds and then just stops playing and loads forever. I have to restart the app to get anything to work, and its the same 30 second cycle. The app is unusable in its current state. Are there other android alternatives? I used this app daily because it was so much easier to navigate videos versus using the website.

The problem of the video stopping/buffering every 30 seconds isn't happening anymore! I'm not sure if it was an update or if it was because I finally decided to replace my Gen 1 Chromecast with the Chromecast Ultra. But either way it's smooth as butter now! Yay!
