Hey PheeDev,
I really like the Idea and the Design of your app and I think its way more useful than the official Youtube app because your allows to play videos in the background.Great work :)
Some Imrovements I could think of are:
1)it would be good if another tap on the "make player fullscreen-button" in the upper right corner after making a player bigger would reduce the size to normal again.(Because it's not very intuitive that you have another button for that at another place, in my opinion)
2)An option to completely hide the 2nd player and only use the 1st  player would be helpful, as this would enable people to use the app as aregular video viewer with a bigger size.
3)The "this is your first start message" gets displayed sometimes even though I have used the app before.
4)The press again to exit message is not very beautiful.
5)The app crashes when I open the "select saved link" listpicker and then tap somewhere else on the screen to close it.(using the back button works fine though).
Except for those few points I really like your app. ;)

PS:May I ask you how you got the Youtube videos to play in the Webview as I can't seem to figure out how to do this for one of my projects?

To be able to play Youtube videos in the webview you have to edit Manifest and add android:targetSdkVersion="14" or higher.

I have heard that you can get your app suspended in Google if you use Youtube videos i your app.

Yeah I read that, too in the youtube documentation or something I think, that you mustn't play youtube videos through anything else than the official player. This case should be allowed , though, I think. as it is more like a normal webbrowser displaying the official youtube site with the official player. But still thanks for the info.
