If you want to keep replays you’ve downloaded in our current app version 2.1, save 'em to your camera roll. Here's how. When you update to 3.0, you won't be able to access these replays. From here on out we’ll save your new highlights in our cloud-based locker room for safe keeping so you won't have to do this again. We apologize for any inconvenience, but moving forward it'll be totally worth it!
