    Looks great and the product is a joy to use. Already have saved three movies to watch later so it's working well.

    Like Bill said, the use of a star icon for adding to a watchlist is slightly confusing. I'd recommend another icon and changing the "Save" string (in the move details screen) to "Add to watchlist" or "Watch later".

    I'd argue to keep them. To me they add to the overall personality you have going there and they don't impact focus or readability.

    Nice work!

    I love this app. Here's hoping Spotify's entry into podcast realm only spurs on more great updates like this one.

    Agree. Nothing wrong with putting in this much effort but at the same time, have some respect for yourself.

    How can you take her opinion seriously when she resorts to blatant generalisations and petty name calling. This is clickbait, and does nothing to address a complicated issue besides "taking power away from Marc Andreessen" and calling TechCrunch shit.

    I mean, look at this:

    "The problem is that this is the exact opposite of what Silicon Valley actually is: a sexist and racist wealth distribution mechanism that relies on cronyism, corruption, and exclusion to function."

    "...a tech company can be as corrupt, soulless, and empty as any corporation, but being unprofessional helps us maintain the belief that we are somehow different from Wall Street."

    "It’s so typical of Silicon Valley’s arrogance that these rich, white male venture capitalists—who have no conception of learning or how to educate young kids—make these grand declarations about the pipeline. It’s gross."

    "In the upper levels of tech, you are generally dealing with white men who have been coddled their entire lives, and they have rarely encountered even mild criticism. They take it as a really crushing, violent blow to their egos."

    Did you finish the article? It sounds like he is too and his life was 'fucked' for the better.
