I knew this program from the PC version, and I was looking for an alternative to the Android default media player. I was very pleased when I saw they ported it to Android. If you knew them from PC, you'll find almost the same here: lightweight, fast, non-intrusive media player. If you didn't know them, it has all you need to play audio and video in your phone/tablet, supporting a wide variety of formats, you can specify folders to look for media and the developer explains in the description what permissions it needs and why it needs them. In my opinion, a must-have app. Great work, team! Full Review

Why does it have to refresh & reload the playlist fully after every time i play a video or open the app.. Crashes often.. Give a stable UI and also a scroll bar for scrolling up or down videos in videos tab in next update. Full Review

Top action bar is unnecessarily hidden while scrolling up. Having that bar always visible makes things easier and more accessible. There would still be plenty of space to look at music tracks below it. Full Review
