Vidmate is a free application for Android devices that can be used to download videos, music, and applications that are generally not available on the Google Play Store. The major use of this application is downloading videos from YouTube and other sites that use similar streaming techniques that help in providing content. This app can be used to download entire movies, latest and trendiest videos and songs. However, this app works only in India. The app also features its own app store with applications that are not available in the Play Store so that users have a variety of apps to choose from.
How to use the app?
Once the app starts up, it provides the user with suggestions on what to download depending on the user’s interest and the latest topics. The users can also search whatever they want to using the handy search option that is available at the top of the app. Users can search from YouTube videos, Facebook videos, Instagram videos and many other sites that contain video content. The app provides users with the choice to download the videos in the quality of their liking. Options available for video quality are generally 144p, 240p, 360p and 720p.
When the user selects a particular video to download, a red button with a download symbol appears on the screen. When this button is clicked, the user is provided with the options for video quality. After the user chooses their desired quality, they need to click the ‘Start Download’ button that appears and the downloading begins.
How does the app download videos?
The app uses a packet system to download videos and music. It separates the vide or music into 4 parts (the number of parts may be changed by the user, but 4 is standard) and downloads them simultaneously. After the download is complete, it compiles all the separate parts together into one unit again, so the final result is the full song or video. This makes the downloading process much faster and easier than downloading it as a whole.
Is the app safe?
Vidmate is completely safe. There might be some doubt in the mind of the users regarding the safety of such a third party app, i.e. an app not available on the play store, but there is no risk of the device being infected with viruses, malware, or trojans with the use of this app.
What about the legality of the app?
The legality of the app cannot be clearly defined. Although all the apps available are completely legal to download, the music and video downloads may be legal in some places and may not be in other places. Also, this app can be used to download videos from sites that may not be strictly legal. It all depends on the user.
Should the app be installed?
Vidmate is a really good app and can be downloaded with no problem to enjoy good content anytime anywhere.
