Thanks for sharing. I have ever tried such an app. To add subtitles to a video on my iPad, it is indeed a decent alternative. Now, I start to try merging SRT subtitle file to video on my Mac. For this, I specifically Google for a video editor. Luckily, I get an easy and powerful video joiner that can merge various files together including the ability to merge all kinds of subtitle files with any videos. If you guys have the same requirement, there is no harm in trying.
