ThumbVideo is a video player forcused on thumb manipulation holding your device with one hand.
Recent iPhone with large size screen such as iPhone6/Plus has difficulty to control playback of video with one hand. But, you can do it with this App!!

More specifically:
1. Horizontal flick on the movie pane is available to forward or backward the video for some pre-set seconds.
2. Time slider (which is normally shown on the top or bottom of the screen horizontally) is shown at the left or right edge _vertically_!!
3. Drawing a circle gesture works as a jog dial like FF/REW control.
4. Long press at any point results 10x FF.
