simplest APP ever - right?

Tap on the app icon and it plays a video that is stored on my phone.
In the settings of the app you choose the video from your phone, once set it is one icon/one video.

Everything out there similar plays a video hosted elsewhere.
I need an app that works in rural areas and does not rely on cell towers.

This is easy right, haven't found it out there - thought I'd get input before building this app - or find someone who could do it with their eyes shut.

This is entirely possible with Buzztouch. There is a plugin AT53 Video Player at this address

https://www.buzztouch.com/plugins/plugin.php?pid=3C06F75263AE92A0B802F44

which will do exactly what you want.

With that plugin it should be possible to do it yourself if you want to approach Buzztouch from that angle.

Of course, you can always pay for that kind of work, it is up to you really.

My enter button must be stuck, or it just likes saying Android for now.

Hoping to create a turnkey package, not sure if that plugin solves the issue or adds pieces to the puzzle. Ideally someone installs the app, then hits the app icon, plays preset video that was downloaded with the install of the app. I don't want them to have to download a plugin, or am I looking at this wrong. Trying to keep it simple.

The plugin is just a screen. The plugin has a video player to play the video. If you need some help, just send me a email on here.

They download the app and use it, you download the plugin as one part of the process of making an app.
