    "I discovered this app from my friend during our long ride. To while away boredom, he watched some old movies stored in his phone. It was HD and I thought it was because of his phone. Turned out his phone wasn't that high-endb but it's the video player that makes it look like one. So he introduced me XXX Video player and I couldn't be satisfied with my watching experience."
