Was great, now practically unusable

I used this app for years without any major problems. The latest update destroyed the app and this was several weeks ago. I am still waiting for a new update, but there has not been one. Please let me downgrade to an old version! When I open the app it takes about 90 seconds to show anything besides an empty library. If I leave it open my music library will finally load, but if I switch windows the app will crash. All my songs are listed about 10 times each even though there is only one file on the device. The app is constantly crashing and then I have to wait another 90 seconds just to see my library again. Other times I finally get the app working and it will freeze and become unresponsive, just stuck on a now playing window or album folder. And then when I am listening to an album with my screen turned off the next song will not be heard until I press a button to turn the screen on, even though the next song already started playing. PLEASE FIX THE APP OR GIVE ME THE OLD VERSION BACK!!!

Developer Response ,

Sorry for this misbehavior of the app. This sounds extremely weird and is completely unknown to us. I fear that you'll have to re-install the app to make it work again :/

Used to love this app, but stopped working properly.

This app used to work great. I use this app regularly to watch class lectures I’ve downloaded to my laptop. I used to be able to easily upload the video files to my iCloud or airdrop them to my iPad and then just copy them to my VLC library. I think the problem may have occurred following an iPad update a few months ago, but since then I only have the option to “open” a video in VLC rather than copy it, and that doesn’t even work. The app opens and the video neither play nor appears in the library. I’ve even tried grabbing my file through the cloud services on the app as well with just as little success. I also tried deleting and re-installing the app. Nothing. The only way to get videos into the app now is to connect my iPad to the laptop and use iTunes, which I find highly inconvenient. It takes longer and I hate using iTunes. Please fix this!!

Just need a little bit upgrade !!

This app is very good for IOS. I only have some ideas, hopefully your team can think about it. When i use my galaxy , i install Mx Player to watch movies, it is very convenient to use. Whenever i go back, just click on play button and i can continue to watch my last movie that I haven’t finished yet. But on this app I didn’t see that, and the list after i transfer my anime movies (over 800 episodes) to my phone. The list wasn’t sort by name or number, everything mess up and very hard to find next episode. Would you please can fix it to make everything more easier. And the right side to swipe up and down to control bright, look like it didn’t work probably. I’m still rate 4 stars for your app.
Wish you can fix it and make the app more greater.
Best wish for your teams and have a good day!!
