Like most people, I was sick of the ads. I finally went premium and love the no ads and I start video starts. However, you push too many buttons (pause, play, skip) and the screen goes dark and hides all bytton options. I had to completely close out the app and reinstall it for it to finally work normally again. Premium is pretty pricey, and for it to not work properly, it's very annoying. Probably not worth it at all.

Something is wrong with the app since last update! I pay for premium to listen to long form white noise videos in the background while I sleep and work. Since the 4/5/24 update the app heats up my phone and kills the battery in a couple of hours. It's never done that before. I go to bed with a full battery and wake up a couple hours later to a dead phone thats too hot to touch and burning up. I used to go all night using maybe 20 to 30% of my battery and it never felt hot. Please fix this!

Just wanted to make someone aware. I seem to have issues with Youtube skipping lately. Either phone or laptop, it will randomly skip forward sometimes. Thought it could be faulty headphones at first, but even without it just now and again the video will skip 20-30 seconds ahead. It's been making me laugh when it does it, but I miss some good parts and even going back makes it skip the same spot. Super weird, just wanted to let you guys know.
