Borrowing iPad Air ii

So my galaxy Tab S10.5 broke and my mother never uses this iPad so I decided to use it while my tab is getting fixed. For a week I was going crazy I could not find away to steam my media from pic to iPad without needing to buy a freaking app on the AppStore.. Didn't really feel like buying a $5.00 app just to use for a couple weeks.. Emby is redeveloping their app I never thought VLC was on the AppStore and thank you baby Jesus it's free lol I'm in streaming heaven for the most part just wish I could search through VLC on my emby server but .. Anything beats using the web media player for music and movies.. THANK YOU VLC FOR YOUR TIME AND EFFORT FOR thE IOS APP! I will be giving a donation when I can afford it 😀

Great, but lots of room for improvement

Absolutely love the ability to sync videos from my DLNA server over wifi. Te gestures are wonderful to use. There are a lot of improvements to make this app easier to use.
- Gestures for playback speed. Perhaps a two finger swipe to one side to speed it up by .5x.
- When rotation lock is enabled in the VLC menu, the controls on the screen (besides the ... VLC menu) no longer work until it is turned off.
- Adjusting the playback speed via the slider is painful. It doesn't snap to even amounts, so sometimes the audio will be slightly distorted.
- The bounding boxers for the controls are too small, often resulting in hitting the wrong button, usually the sleep timer in my case.

🚫 Worst update in human history 🚫

Doesn't playback my videos when the screen is turned off, cant believe i updated this app. I feel scammed man. Whoever the creator is u should sell this app to someone devoted enough to release constant updates and bug fixes, it seems that you only do something about it when the pressure is high. Im writing this only because there is no other good app that plays in the background while the screen is off. And u just effed that up too, thank you very much 👍🏻

UPDATE: it is beyond me how this app still gets 3 stars man, you deserve minus 3 stars for ruining a perfectly working app (a year ago) and now it is USELESS, just like you. Get a new job dude👊🏻
