Authentic For Microsoft Mobile Device Users
As you can notice, the app you are trying to download is not actually an app. However, it is not a fake either because it is no less from the website of Microsoft. The only thing that will confuse users is that it only provides the link and a few apps that are available for free if you are using the PC version. You can also notice this if you are doing this on an Android mobile device.
Use The App Responsibly
Therefore, you simply have to use a mobile version of Microsoft to be able to access what the app can provide. If you are going to use the app for downloading YouTube videos, then you should be in luck. The only thing that might get in the way is that you might be subject for video piracy if you are going to use it for personal gain.
Downloading apps can be a good way to learn more that you can use for your own advantage. However, if you are going to commit an act that is against the law, then you might want to think twice before downloading VidMate. You still can use it though but perhaps for educational purposes only.
