Excellent Movie Player

I liked that you can download movies various ways and give the movie an authentic movie poster icon in your library.

It also plays music flac files which you can organize into folders. Loading and storing music files is a two step process where you download the files and then move them to folders.

What I don’t like is that you can only display your files one way at a time. All your files are displayed the same way. Showing movies as poster icons is great but music files don’t have posters so you can’t really use the poster display if you want to store music files also. I just display everything as folders so I can read the names of songs.

Also, you have to be heads up to make sure the app isn’t running in the background. It will run your battery down to 0% in a couple of hours.

Purchased pro, but features promised are lackluster

**updating to 1 star, the devs do not respond to inquiries about the issue below and recent app updates have also not fixed this bug**

I purchased the pro version because I really liked how the free version worked, but I wanted more capabilities. I didn't even mind the ads in the free version. Mainly, I wanted the ability to use chromecast, which you can't use in the free version. However, when you are casting a video, you can't do anything else on your phone because it stops playback. I can't respond to a text, use other apps, or even TURN OFF THE SCREEN or else the playback completely stops. I don't think it's fair that I purchased a version that renders my phone useless while I'm casting from this app. I wouldn't have purchased if I knew this would happen. Other reviews haven't mentioned this problem, so I figured I'd warn other people. I'm more than willing to update with a better rating if the developers fix this issue. Fingers crossed!

Wouldn’t recommend the app or its support

I bought this app for 2 simple things - being able to stream via FTP and to load Bulgarian subtitles. It fails miserably at both. Seeking works only half the time when streaming and they’ve supposedly resolved an issue where some of the subtitle lines were missing by... deciding not to load Bulgarian subtitles at all. I reported the issue with subtitles partially loading to their Support in December 2019 only to receive a quick email from them that they are looking into it. No replies to my emails since then and no Bulgarian subtitles at all in their latest update. No reply from them to my email asking for a refund either.

I ended up paying for an app which is useless for me.

I wouldn’t in all honesty recommend this app. Giving it 2 stars only because the subtitles issue wasn’t present at the time I bought it.
