TuneCable now has two download modes - app mode and web player mode. The former needs the TIDAL app to run and saves up to Master/Max (or Hi-Res up to 24-bit/192kHz) quality, while the web player mode works by accessing the embedded Tidal web player and keeps up to HiFi/High (or 16-bit/44.1kHz CD quality) at 10x fast speed.
