Rated 5 out of 5
This app is worthy of the current 4.9 star rating and my 5 stars. It's so easy to install and then you're watching a video and all of a sudden it jumps forward a minute or two to miss the sponsored promos YT creators insert into their videos. The first few times I had to rewind to make sure SponsorBlock had got it right, and sure enough it was correct to the second. I no longer question it when SponsorBlocks skips forward in the video as it is always so accurate.

But when will this work for Android?
- by Unbolted, 13 dae geledeRated 4 out of 5This extension has saved me alot of time, and alot of clicks! I use YouTube for many things, tutorials and entertainment and one thing that they usually share in common is the content creator having sponsors and simply content unrelated to the video. Now these take up a minute or 2 or even more sometimes, and that's really annoying. Now a minute may not sound like much, and you could say just click past the sponsor, but number 1, with this extension, that can be automated or you can use a hotkey to skip it, so there is less movement of your fingers, and as for "it's just 1 minute", you can actually view stats at the extensions menu for how much time you've saved since using this. It's a bit like discounts, say for instance you can just type in a coupon for 20 cents off, 20 cents doesn't sound like alot, but after a while it can really add up to so much. Now I know this is like comparing apples to oranges but why go through the hassle of extra clicks when you could have 1 or no clicks?
This extension is not a RAM Hog, it doesn't really cause lag to my browser at all, and that's just great!
I am so grateful such extension exists, and with all the customization that is available, I just can't see myself not using this at all!
I have a few issues that are fairly minor but I would still like to point out.
First of all, the settings is a little bit confusing, while the UI is clean and easy to use, the options are not explained well, specifically the skip options and interface section settings. They just aren't really explained well, nor is there any easy to access place to view what these options can do or mean. I just think that the wiki should be set out a bit better as it doesn't seem to load right and it's hard to find what you are looking for.
Now this one is to do with the icon, I just don't really like the design, and since it's displayed in a small format, that small line on the outside just doesn't look that good from a design standpoint.
These small things, should NOT stop you from getting this extension will have a guaranteed benefit of saving you time. It should be noted that as much as you can rely on the community, it's still a community effort to record content. By submitting sections unrelated to the video, you will be helping thousands of people, and it's not too hard to do!
