Would be 5 stars if you could add “Open In...” feature.

This app would be AMAZING and worth the price of the subscription fees I’m currently paying – if any ONLY IF – the application would show up as an option when selecting a file in any other app to, “Open in...’, where “MediaInfo” could ideally be an option.

I’ve tried extensively to search for this ability by managing my Actions Menu that pops up for opening files in other applications, and MediaInfo is the ONE APP out of several on my iOS devices that seems to be *incapable* of appearing in the menu when trying to share/open ANY sort of file from ANY other application.

Would the Developer(s) of this application PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE work on resolving what should be the easiest feature to include??? Literally every other iOS application has this feature, and the fact that this one doesn’t is beyond frustrating. What’s the point of having this application – AND PAYING FOR THE “EXTRA FEATURES” – if it cannot do the one task it needs to?

What’s the point of this app without such a significant feature? I’m asking you honestly. I’ll wait...

a useful app with a significant bug

After you open a video file with this app, this app will be contain that video file in it. You can see this app become very large in the system settings, iPad storage option.

Finally! I’ve looked for Mediainfo on iOS (now iPadOS) for years. Part of my job is to look at media file encoding to determine its compatibility, and that the file is actually properly encoded in the first place.

I work from home with 2 (soon to be 3) kiddos. My iPad (now iPadPro) has had a big role to play in my daily workflow, even just my ability to WORK while on the go.

Having Mediainfo right on my iPadPro now is a HUGE deal for me. THANK YOU (and take my money!)!!!
