I have been using it maybe a month now and have had no issues. I download movies/music & can play both with Lua. I can turn my screen off, it will still play. It auto pauses when you watch a YT video or a video in browser, then resumes as soon as the video stops. Which I like, I don't have to go back and press play. The picture in picture or the hovering screen is perfectly dimensioned and not too small.. You have to go into settings to turn the option to continue where you left off. Great apa!

They got it to play Youtube again. It's good overall, but the pop-up window has so many toggles, if you touch it by accident in the wrong area, it'll mess everything up. For instance, if you come to move the pop-up viewer to a different area of the screen, you'll accidently hit the seek bar and the video will jump forward 20 min, or you'll accidently turn the volume up, etc.

I personally love this app and enjoy using it. If I can make a suggestion. If you keep everything the same the layout the design but just add an option to have more than one popup player. Like the g player they have an option as to where you can play 6 to 8 videos at the same time. That would be dope with the way the layout is and how easy it is to resize the player your app would hands down be the best multi video popup player and would knock out all competition. Feel free to contact me
