This app only will work is you phone is not rooted. If the phone is rooted you will get an error: Oops " redboxinstant can't run on this device"

Sadly, I understand why they don't allow rooted devices, if your device is rooted then you can exploit the app to record the video file to your device. Smart bas***ds. Hopefully XDA will figure out something soon!
