This app downloads a song by getting the audio from Youtube sources using youtube-dl and then adds song information like artist name, album name, release date, thumbnail etc by fetching it from sources like Itunes, Gaana and other sources.


NO. YoutubeDL doesn't do that. All youtube-dl does is lets you download audio from a video that you specify. This app is not yet another youtube-dl clone.
