When was the last time that you turned on the TV in order to watch a movie? Everything changed when smartphones became accessible and people could stream any online video, movie or TV show that they wanted. Traditional cable companies are going bankrupt and video streaming platforms have millions of daily users.
Online Videos are the “New Age Media”
Even though the “new age media” is changing the way people keep themselves entertained during boring hours, there is a big downside to streaming online videos. As everyone already knows, the only requirement that people need to meet in order to stream online videos on their smartphones is to connect the device to mobile data or a Wi-Fi network.
To make things even worse, video streaming platforms don’t allow users to download online videos for offline viewing. Although, who can blame them? These video streaming platforms make their money through ads and if users had the ability to download every online video that they want, then the streaming platforms would have a difficult time showing ads to them. Nonetheless, there is an app that provides everyone with an alternative to watching online videos.
VidMate is a free to use app that can be installed on Android powered smartphones. What makes this app special is the fact that it makes it possible for everyone to download any online video that they want. Not just that, but VidMate can download online videos from a multitude of websites and apps which places the app in the “must-have” category.
Although, we do need to mention that VidMate’s ability to download online videos goes against Google’s ToS (terms of service). Therefore, VidMate is not available to download from the Google Play Store and interested users need to get in the form of APK from the app’s official website.
