    Small suggestion here. I opened the website and there's just the video. I usually won't watch any video because that's too much effort for me.

    There should be some text just briefly explains what your app does.

    Plus, I decided to press on the button, and the video still doesn't play, as well as showing a somewhat creepy man's face there. It was not a great experience and might affect the download rate.

      Thanks for the suggestion. According to the Youtube API docs, you have to click on the native player or else Youtube won't recognize the views. It's annoying, I know.

      If you click on the hamburger icon (top right), you should be able to see an "About" section, by the way. Let me know if there's anything that's not straightforward!

        yea that's definitely annoying. I think there're some workaround for this. For example flow did a good job on their landing page here: https://www.getflow.com

        For the hamburger icon, as a lot of designers here have discussed that, it might not be a good solution. I do a lot of user testing stuff and what I observe is almost nobody tap on the hamburger icon even on mobile. So if you hide important information under manu or layers, people just won't see it.
