I use this app all the time. It's by far the best video app on android in my opinion. Can also organise your media like in KODI. The one thing is you need to add support for certain formats. They charge you for this. However if you search the play store someone has created an app you run once called archos player all codecs that does what you'd expect and it's free!
Archos = fail
MX Player Pro seems to be the better option, but it costs mote. (It has been 10p before)
Not v helpful when hukd make these things hot well after they have expired.
Does anyone know if this does anything that Kodi does not do? Other than the .torrent file playing, I cant see anything. Oh, and Trakt integration now that Exodus has been blocked.

Tempted, even at full price, just to see what the Kodi competition is like.
