    Everything is great except for a few things that hopefully can be addressed. One is for those of us with on screen menu keys, ie. Nexus devices, I want the video to go full screen and hide the menu keys. Second is the video quality itself. Even with HD

    App works great and you can find some educational stuff, but... many of the talks are subjective at best and not particularly credible (i.e. opinions)
