Thanks for the encouraging words. 

Another request is to please rate the XL Cinema app on google play store or the Apple app store.

Thanks
Dipendra

Hello Dipendra sir,

Greetings of the day!
first of all thanks for the great app! i am very happy with (XL cinema). it's very great experience. i tried with "sholay" i am telling you it's very amazing. i never ever think that  i will get this type of experience in my life. when i read audio description is available in other country, every time I thought, when the accessible media will come to India?  tomoro  i am going to see the "Sanju" movie in the cinema hall. i will share that experience latter. one more think, your tutorial is also very good!

Thanks,
